The West Indies tie their T20 series with England after beating them by 25 runs at the Oval.

The West Indies have tied their two-game Twenty20 series with England after beating them by 25 runs at the Oval.

The tourists had set Graeme Swann's side the modest target of 114, but a series of run-outs meant that England reached their lowest ever T20 international total.

Johnson Charles [21] and Marlon Samuels [35] stood out with the bat for the visitors before they reached 113-5 at the end of their 20 overs.

The score was lower than what was posted in Friday's humiliating defeat, but England struggled to get out of the blocks with Alex Hales [2] and Craig Kieswetter [10] falling early on.

Ben Stokes was the brightest with the bat, scoring 31 runs, but run-outs for Samit Patel, Jos Buttler, Scott Borthwick and Jade Dernbach saw England all out for 88.

The most damaging with the ball for the West Indies was Garey Mathurin, who took 3-9 on his international T20 debut.

England will now prepare for their upcoming one-day series in India, with the ECB announcing the squad for the tour on Tuesday.
