WARNER PARK, St Kitts – St Kitts were left floundering after England in their first tour match of their present visit to the West Indies dismissed them for a paltry 59.

The home side opted to bat first but offered next to no resistance as the English attack completed their task inside 27 overs.

Ben Stokes was the pick of the bowlers as he took three for 10 and looked close to his best bowling form.

Five of the Kittitian batsmen returned to the pavilion without troubling the scorers.

Top scorer for St Kitts was number seven batsman Jaison Peters.

England in reply were 79 without loss, with Captain Alistar Cook on 45 and Jonathan Trott 31.
