Mixed emotions for match-winner Hales
England opener Alex Hales admitted he was 'absolutely buzzing' after leading his side to a seven-wicket win over the West Indies.
The hosts were set a challenging 173 to win at Trent Bridge after losing a grip on the game in the latter stages of the Windies innings.
The tourists were 109-4 at the end of the 16th over but a quickfire 54 from Dwayne Bravo and an explosive 23 from Keiron Pollard helped them to a competitive total.
Hales and Ravi Bopara responded in positive fashion following the early loss of Craig Kieswetter, taking England to within four runs of victory with an excellent 159-run partnership.
The Nottinghamshire batsman fell agonisingly short of a maiden Twenty20 international century on his home ground but was delighted with his match-winning 99 from 68 balls.
"I'm absolutely buzzing. I'm happy with the way I've played today and I hope to keep myself in the frame for the next few games. I've got mixed emotions, I'm disappointed not to have made a hundred, but pleased we got the win," said Hales.
Bopara also fell for 59 in the final over but Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler took England home.
