Catch all the live action of the one-off T20I between England and West Indies through at Chester-le-Street our live commentary.

Preview:

England limited overs captain Eoin Morgan is keen to see how his side fares against an "experienced" West Indies team. The fixture is the only Twenty20 fixture before the two sides begin a five-match one-day international series, which gets underway in Manchester next week.

England recently won a three-match Test series 2-1, after West Indies, belying their reputation as a weak outfit in cricket's longest format, upset the odds to win the second Test at Headingley.

But the upcoming white-ball clashes are set to see West Indies, who beat England in the 2016 World Twenty20 final in Kolkata, India, bolstered by the likes of powerful opening batsman Chris Gayle.
