Alex Hales was nearly out for a golden duck as well but Rovman Powell dropped a tough diving chance following a firm clip off the pads.

However, Alex Hales (43) smashed eight fours and a six and took England to 64-1 inside the first batting powerplay.

Brathwaite ignited the collapse when he had Hales clean bowled off a straight delivery, then Joe Root (17) caught in the next over off Ashley Nurse.

However, England limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan defended the decision to stand Stokes down from Saturday's clash by arguing the move could yet prove beneficial ahead of the upcoming Ashes tour of Australia.

Narine was named man-of-the-match after taking two for 15, with none of the West Indies side on show Saturday having featured in a preceding 2-1 Test series defeat by England.

The Riverside, which has hosted 26 worldwide fixtures since being opened in 1995, was recently barred from hosting Test matches following a financial bail-out from the European Central Bank that also resulted in the club losing its first-division status.

Chris Gayle (40) and Evin Lewis (51) got West Indies off to a flying start as they raced to 72 without loss in just six overs after England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and fielded.

Nursing Home Says It Contacted Scott 'Multiple Times' Before Patients Died
As a precaution, Hollywood police officers were checking on the 42 other assisted-living facilities and nursing homes in the area. Sharief confirmed during a news conference that three residents died at the center and two died at the hospital.

Watchful against the occasional off-spin of Joe Root, the man who dismissed him cheaply in the World Cup final previous year, Gayle exploded into life with a short arm jab into the seats of the Emirates Riverside pavilion off David Willey - becoming the first man to reach 100 sixes in Twenty20 internationals in the process.

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

West Indies finished on 176 for nine, although their expectations would have been much more ambitious as Chris Gayle began in ominous mood only to sacrifice himself with a lackadaisical run out.

The India match saw Lewis make a superb 125 not out.

The Trinidadian, however, was out soon afterwards when he drove Plunkett to Root at mid-off.

'I completely understand the frustration but there is certainly a huge need for guys who play all three formats to take a rest when needed, ' he said.

"We start the T20 series there - it's only a one-off T20 and then we're into the five-match ODI series".
