West Indies reached 170-3 from their 20 overs thanks to 69 from Samuels, who shared a 58-run stand with Andre Russell, and early wickets cost England dear in their run chase.

After Badree dismissed Alex Hales, Luke Wright and Michael Lumb to reduce England to 36-3, the visitors never recovered and stumbled to 143-9 in their reply.

At the end it was an easy finish for West Indies to secure victory to go up 1-0 in the three-match series.
