England v West Indies: Three spectators injured as part of stand collapses

Three spectators were reportedly injured after the partial collapse of a stand at Chester-le Street during the one-off T20I between England and West Indies

Both sides now head into a five-match one-day series which begins on Tuesday [19 September] in Manchester.

The match at Durham saw a repeat of the 2016 World T20 final at the Eden Gardens which West Indies won in spectacular fashion thanks to those four consecutive sixes by Carlos Brathwaite. Windies are the champs of the twenty20, shortest cricketing format.

England skipper Eoin Morgan admitted: 'There was a little bit of rustiness in everything we did bar our fielding, which we did reasonably well.

'From the position we found ourselves in after the powerplay, to only be chasing 170-odd we felt pretty confident.

A lovely full swing of the bat launched the ball straight or over mid-wicket.

As the captain and bowler of some incisive overs, Carlos Brathwaite again pulled the strings, capturing three wickets including the risky Alex Hales and...

Brathwaite and Narine shared five wickets between them and gave away just 35 runs from their eight overs.

Khamenei's remarks come after the recent statement of US President Donald Trump, who accused the Islamic Republic of violating the nuclear deal's "spirit".

Then the rot set in. England failed to get to grips with the tourists' slower paced bowlers in the middle of their innings with man of the match Sunil Narine the pick, finishing with 2 for 15, and he found good support from Carlos Brathwaite (3 for 20) and Ashley Nurse (1 for 23).

"My form is in and out, it's not a huge concern but I'd like to score more runs".

At one point, police evacuated one of the stands after three spectators were injured in a fall caused by unstable flooring.

"We are where we are, and if we do have to play in them (qualifiers) we will take it one step at a time". Now captain, Brathwaite encouraged his players to play freely and express themselves while he was speaking at the match venue on the eve of the game. It was a shambolic end to a quite brilliant innings which had brought Gayle 40 runs from 21 balls.

Lewis got in on the act en route to a 26-ball 50, but after he was out West Indies lost their way.

Lewis made an impressive 28-ball fifty but his dismissal signalled the start of a collapse with Plunkett also accounting for Marlon Samuels (10), and Kieron Pollard (six) in a quick three-wicket burst.

All three were taken to the RVI in Newcastle. England seemed back in the game, only to fall apart themselves.
