Plunkett and Rashid lead England fight back in Windies T20

Curran has impressed with Surrey and England this season and is close to a Big Bash deal for the winter

West Indies defied inclement conditions to defeat England by 21 runs in the one-off T20 global at Chester-le-Street.

"This was probably the more challenging of our recent wins", Brathwaite told Sky Sports.

Brathwaite didn't not feature in the preceding Test series, which England claimed 2-1 after winning the 3rd Test at Lord's.

West Indies won by 21 runs as England were bowled out for 155.

Alex Hales quickly made good the loss, bludgeoning four fours from Kesrick Williams's next over, then pulling Taylor for six.

"I can see both sides of it, of course guys want to see him play", said Morgan. England had lost three wickets for four runs.

And Nurse's fellow spinner Sunil Narine then had Twenty20 skipper Eoin Morgan out for just two when the dangerman reverse swept straight to Lewis at short third man.

Rashid took a career-best best three for 25, including Brathwaite - slayer of Stokes in the World Twenty20 final previous year - bowled round his legs on the sweep for two.

Chris Gayle smashed 4 sixes in his 21 balls knock of 40 and became the first man to 100 T20I sixes.

West Indies met further defiance from Buttler and Bairstow when they put on 50 for the fifth wicket with sensible batting, but with the scoring rate steadily increasing chances needed to be taken and the bottom half of the England batting failed to spark, as the Windies bowlers cleverly offered up a variety of cutters and change of pace deliveries.

The West Indies bowling effort was frustratingly slow with frequent delays for ball changes, injuries and tactical talks.

Saturday saw Lewis threaten another big score while making fifty off 26 balls, including six fours and three sixes.

The 37-year-old Gayle, in common with several senior West Indies players, had been involved in a bitter dispute with Caribbean cricket chiefs.

His opening partner Evin Lewis kept the tempo up smashing his way to 51 off 28 balls but he would chip Liam Plunkett to Joe Root at mid-off.

West Indies captain Jason Holder has received an official reprimand for venting his frustration at a dropped catch during the ongoing second Test against England at Headingley, the International Cricket Council announced Tuesday.
