Chris Gayle smashed a breathtaking 162 as West Indies fell agonisingly short of a famous one-day international victory against a Jos Buttler-inspired England in Grenada.

The hosts almost chased down England’s 418-6 – Buttler hitting 150 off just 77 balls – but the tourists held their nerve for a 29-run win as leg-spinner Adil Rashid took four wickets in the 48th over.

For large parts of West Indies’ astonishing chase, it appeared Gayle would see them home – the opener hammering 14 sixes in a memorable knock.
