Scorer: Thilak Ram | Commentator: Alan Gardner

10.40pm: It's hosing down in Chester-le-Street, which is our cue to push off. Miller's report will be updated shortly and we'll be back for the one-dayers next week. Bye!

10.30pm: Time to hear from the captains, starting with Carlos Brathwaite: [Good record v England?] "This was probably more challenging, the conditions were hard to deal with and I think the umpires were close to calling it off, but I was pleased with the boys. They asked if we wanted to trudge on, we said let's give it a go and no more slip-ups happened. We had a good start and fell away but then the fight from the boys, finishing the game the way we did was fantastic. [Gayle and Lewis?] I played in the same CPL side, Evin has been striking it cleanly. They'r e fantastic to watch, and helped up off to a great start."

England's Eoin Morgan: "Bowling at a pair like Lewis and Gayle was a huge opportunity to test ourselves and we didn't bowl that well. But we were happy chasing what we did, losing three wickets when we did, then Jos and Jonny having to rebuild, I think that cost us. They have full power to push the button and take it on. [Form?] It's always a concern, I don't know when I'm in or out of form. I'm looking forward to the one-day series. [Poor bowling up front] We didn't execute, just come out of playing Championship cricket; and the challenge of bowling to two very good players."

Sunil Narine is Man of the Match: "Yeah, it's good to come out and put on a performance. It was tough conditions but we handled ourselves well. It's difficult with the wet ball and cold conditions, hopefully they continue in the one-day series. It's about getting the right pace and using the variations. Good to see Gayle back and we have a lot of young players. It was a good score, maybe 15 runs short but we came back and bowled well. Performing for your country and being able to win is always the best."

10.25pm: Clinical stuff from the Windies, putting their batting collapse behind them and shackling England with canny variations on a surface that was only conducive to big hitting when Gayle and Lewis were blitzing things early on. Carlos Brathwaite and Kesrick Williams took three wickets apiece and Sunil Narine tied England up with 2 for 15 from his four overs. They were cold, it was wet but West Indies were still too hot for England.

Brathwaite to Plunkett, OUT, leg stump out of the ground! Full and straight from Brathwaite, Plunkett misses and he hits - and that means West Indies have won by 21 runs

Brathwaite to Plunkett, 2 runs, hits the middle of the pitch, rising up as Plunkett pulls, clothed into the leg side and they can get back for two

Okay, so we're outside even Carlos Brathwaite territory... England needing 26 off the last six balls. And it'll be Brathwaite to bowl 'em
