Stokes with back-to-back boundaries and this is a convincing win for England. They have outplayed West Indies in all departments here and comfortably won this one by eight wickets. They now move up to third position in the points table and are looking on course for a semi-final spot atleast. Joe Root completes a ton. Fine innings, opening the batting and taking the control of the chase here.
Mike Burns Commentator: Valkerie Baynes 8.
Umpires Jeremy Lloyds and Rob Bailey have just had a walk around under umbrellas while the rain continued to fall and decided that there was no prospect of play. Please join us on Friday for the second match in this T20I series, which will also be played in Northampton, and in the meantime, keep those fingers crossed for clear skies!
The toss has been delayed by heavy rain, which hasn't stopped yet. An update on the latest time that play can begin for a five-overs-per-side match is 9.
We'll let you know as soon as there is any news on a possible mop-up and start. With England looking to extend their match winning streak across all formats and West Indies looking to atone for their drubbing in the ODI series, showers settled in some time ago and the covers remain on.
The cut-off for a start is 9. We'll keep you posted on progress towards a match as updates come to hand.
In the meantime, Australian wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy has made a rather bold prediction about her side's hopes against England in the Women's Ashes starting next month. Happy reading and here's hoping there's some live play soon.
