WEST INDIES Twenty20 stars Johnson Charles and Andre Fletcher produced a half-century stand but it was not enough to save Bengal Tigers from a comprehensive eight-wicket defeat to Kerala Kings, on the opening day of the inaugural T10 League in the United Arab Emirates yesterday.

Sent in at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in the 10 overs-per-side tournament, Tigers rattled up 86 for one off their allotted overs, with Charles stroking 33 and Fletcher, an unbeaten 32.

Charles faced 27 balls and counted four fours and a six while Fletcher struck three fours and a six in a 24-ball knock, in a 56-run opening stand.
