England lost by 20-run to West Indies, who were flying high with Rovman Powell’s maiden T20 international ton including too many sixes, and put up a target of 224 for five. England team was being captained by Moeen Ali while Eoin Morgan dealt with his quad niggle.
Powell’s efforts accompanied by Nicholas Pooran’s 70 off 43 balls to form a 122-run stand, the Windies’ highest third-wicket T20 partnership helped the islanders cruise to their biggest total ever against England in the format. In response, England fell short of 20 runs as they ended with 204 for nine at the end of the 20 overs to fall behind in the five-match test series with 2-1. England had handed a Twenty20 debut to Phil Salt at the Kensington Oval and Salt knocked 57 from 24 balls in his debut match in the loss.
