West Indies Survive Morgan Magic

A magical innings from Eoin Morgan wasn't enough for England as they lost by 15 runs to the West Indies on the opening day of super eight matches in Pallekele. Morgan hit 71 not out off only 36 balls, but, coming in at number five, even he couldn't make up for the earlier failings of his colleagues. West Indies' openers had earlier blitzed England's spinners to all parts to lead their side to 179 for five. Chris Gayle and Johnson Charles both hit fast-paced half-centuries as seven overs of England spin yielded 70 runs and only one wicket.
