England beat the West Indies by ten wickets in their Twenty20 match at the Oval.

England have beaten the West Indies by ten wickets in their Twenty20 international at the Oval.

Dwayne Smith [33] and Johnson Charles [36] looked to have given the visitors a good start, but after succumbing to the bowling of Samit Patel, more wickets quickly followed.

Danza Hyatt made a knock of 28, but the rest of the West Indies batting order failed to make double figures as Ravi Bopara claimed 4-10, the best bowling figures ever by an Englishman in Twenty20 internationals.

Chasing a score of 126, England openers Craig Kieswetter [58] and Alex Hales [62] were rarely troubled by the tourists' bowling attack and the duo reached their target with 4.4 overs remaining.

The second Twenty20 international between the two sides takes place on Sunday.
