England batsman Joe Root will miss the World Twenty20 in
Bangladesh after fracturing his thumb, and Ian Bell will
replace him, the International Cricket Council has confirmed.
Marlon Samuels blasted an unbeaten 69 off just 46 balls to
spur West Indies to an easy 27-run victory over England in
their first Twenty20 international at Kensington Oval in
Otago's plucky run chase unravelled in the space of two
deliveries but all-rounder Sam Wells tried to stitch it back
together with some brilliant hitting at the death.
Taieri 68 lost to Albion72/2 by eight wickets.
