West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite was rewarded for making an 8,000-mile round trip to Chester-le-Street as the tourists beat England by 21 runs in a lone Twenty20 worldwide on Saturday.

Earlier Chris Gayle (40) and Lewis (51) got West Indies off to a flying start, putting on 77 for the first wicket.

While thankful for having won West Indies a trophy off his own bat, Brathwaite's goal now is for consistent worldwide success.

The North East ambulance service responded to a 999 call from the ground and took one of the injured parties to Newcastle's RVI Hospital, with "non life-threatening injuries", later confirmed as a broken leg.

The Windies overcame a slippery outfield that nearly forced umpires Martin Gough and Tim Robinson to abandon the England chase in the fifth over, an Alex Hales 39-ball blitz for a top score of 43, and a rearguard from Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow to clinch their 11th victory over England in 15 matches in this format.

Rovman Powell made a useful 28 and Ashley Nurse scored 13 as the innings slowed but they were still able to put on 176 for 9 from their 20 overs. They asked if we wanted to trudge on, we said let's give it a go and no more slip-ups happened.

"Losing the game was losing three wickets in that period", said Morgan.

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

England and West Indies begin a five-match one-day worldwide series in Manchester on Tuesday.

Plunkett turned the game for England with his extra pace and would end with figures of 3/27 while Adil Rashid followed that up taking 3/25 to cut deep into the Windies tail.

In response, the home side was all out for 155.

England's response got off to a bad start with Jason Roy caught for a first-ball duck, and Hales was dropped on zero before he was bowled by Brathwaite having smashed eight fours and one six.
