Three injured as T20 cricket stand caves in at Emirates Riverside

  • A section of the floor of a temporary stand caved

The incident happened during the sell-out match between England and the West Indies at the Emirates Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street.

Rather like the last time the sides met in the World Twenty20 final in Kolkata past year, England were on top for much of this game only to finish on the wrong end after losing the plot in the later stages.

The 29-year-old also held a catch to dimiss Joe Root as the home team could only make 155 in reply to the visitors' 9-176 at a chilly and rainswept Riverside.

"Conditions were soft and slippery, the umpires were close to calling it off actually".

Brathwaite, however, bowled Hales for 43 made off just 17 balls, including eight fours and a six.

The embattled Brathwaite formalised the result with three balls remaining when he went past Liam Plunkett's ugly swipe and bowled the England fast bowler to cap one of his better bowling performances in maroon since he was controversially elevated to captain previous year.

Durham County Cricket Club said: "During the course of the second innings between England v West Indies, three spectators were injured when a small section of the North-East Terrace flooring became unstable causing them to fall".

West Indies opener Evin Lewis of Trinidad and Tobago bats during his innings of 51 off 24 balls, the highest individual score in yesterday's NatWest T20 worldwide against England at Emirates Durham ICG in Chester-le-Street, England, yesterday.

All three were taken to the RVI in Newcastle.

Rovman Powell tried to fix some of the damage with 28 down the order before he was out shortly before rain briefly halted play with West Indies 165 for eight off 18.5 overs.

Gayle's boundaries included two sixes in as many balls off left-arm paceman David Willey, a pull followed by a straight drive.

Gayle's fun came to an end after the powerplay, though, as he ambled lazily for a single and was run out smartly by a combination of Jason Roy and Plunkett.

That match saw fellow left-hander Lewis manage the impressive feat of out-hitting Gayle on his way to a stunning and unbeaten 125.
