West Indies survive Morgan blast

The Report by George Dobell-  September 27, 2012

West Indies 179 for 5 (Charles 84, Gayle 58) beat England 162 for 4 (Morgan 71*, Hales 68) by 15 runs
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

A century opening stand between Chris Gayle and Johnson Charles powered West Indies to their first win of the 2012 World Twenty20 with a 16-run victory against England in their opening Super Eights match. Their top-order batsmen setting a daunting total of 179 for 5 and their quartet of slow bowlers suffocated the England batsmen as they started their reply.

A remarkable fourth-wicket stand of 107 in 58 balls between Alex Hales, who scored 68 from 51 balls, and Eoin Morgan, who made a brilliant, unbeaten 71 from 36 balls, gave England an outside chance of victory, but the pair were left too much to do by another lacklustre performance from their top-order colleagues.  [more]
