View full scorecard

Never mind the team, this was a night when England's bowlers were thrashed. They conceded 14 sixes, a number no team has managed against them since they were last in Barbados at the start of last year, and that has just been surpassed multiple times in their history. Turbocharged by their strong maximums, and chasing a distinctly under-par score of 171, West Indies properly won by four wickets, with 11 balls remaining.

Along the way one colleague his name into the history books. Adil Rashid became the main Englishman to 100 T20 wickets, the third to make 100 appearances in the format, and by way of footnote was the least expensive of the seven English bowlers here.

He is the primary Englishman, and tenth man, to reach triple figures for wickets and the third Englishman - after Eoin Morgan, who played 115 games, and Jos Buttler, for whom this was a 110th - to make as many appearances, and when the smell of defeat has cleared will certainly recollect the evening with great and merited pride

However, a portion of England's bowling was expensive in both the cricketing and the financial sense, considering that Kyle Mayers sent two balls soaring out of the ground via the roof of the Greenidge and Haynes stand and Andre Russell, outstanding with bat and ball on the occasion of his most memorable international appearance for over two years, landed one on top of the big screen. Add another that was quickly soaked when the game continued after a rain break and the crate of replacement balls was out more much of the time than West Indies batters.

However for some time, as Rashid, Rehan Ahmed and Liam Livingstone attached up West Indies with legspin, it appeared England could salvage the game. "It was great to see them operate together," Jos Buttler said of Rehan and Rashid. "We wanted to see what it seemed to be, to have two x-factor bowlers like that, especially around here where it could spin. We really want to find out assuming that it's a choice here before we get to the World Cup."

With two balls of the sixteenth over remaining, the seventh progressive over of spin, the hosts required 43 off 26, and it was anything but a done deal. Then Rovman Powell thrashed Livingstone's last two conveyances of the night over the rope, and from that point West Indies were unstoppable.

The main issue for England was that while they started their innings sublimely they finished it calamitously, losing their last five wickets for six runs in 16 balls to finish with a total well shy of their most negative midway imaginings.

"From the position we were in at halfway, 112 for two, to just wind up with 171 is an area we might have enhanced," Buttler said. "The wicket definitely got harder and the West Indies adapted, however certainly we want to find a way to score another 20 or 25 runs in that phase, which would have been a great score on that wicket."

Phil Salt, who scored 40 off 20 balls, clicked straight into top gear at the start, giving Jos Buttler time to find his musicality. They put on 77 for the principal wicket and pillaged 25 runs off the sixth over alone, somewhat of a wreck from Alzarri Joseph that featured two fours, a six, one significant overstep and two wides, the second of which bounced through the legs of Nicholas Pooran behind the stumps and ran away to the rope. When Will Jacks sent the initial two balls of Joseph's next over soaring over the ropes he had bowled eight legal conveyances and conceded 38 runs
