    3.2 Hales falls sweeping, top-edged to backward square leg! Revenge served piping hot by Allen, went straighter and got just a touch of turn and bounce, the ball then held up in the wind as Brathwaite ran back to take the catch over his shoulder 27/2
    2.1 slashed and gone - taken by the diving Bishoo at backward point! West Indies have their breakthrough, bit of a loose shot and YJB is gone early. Cottrell was so excited he nearly forgot to do his celebration there. Nearly 15/1
    15.5 bottom-handed biff, on the up to the leg side, they hustle back for two ... but the shy is good and umpire Brathwaite doesn't even look upstairs! Great work from Allen in the deep, and Root's fine knock is over. Now then Mr Billings, it's on you now ... 114/5
    4.1 speared leg side, Morgan flicks at it... and up goes the finger, caught off a tickle behind! Brathwaite was off and running, and Morgan knew he'd grazed it via the inside edge, as he turns and walks. Clipped the bat, then deflected off the thigh pad, Hope tumbling to his right for a low catch. Everything going right for West Indies right now 29/3
    5.2 dragged on! England four down... Probably the wrong shot choice there, trying to cut but the ball turned a touch, took the bottom edge and clattered into middle and off. England are in a right two and eight, here! 32/4
    19.6 edged and gone! Billings winds up for the wallop again, but McCoy finds his composure in the end. A superb innings comes to an end. That's what England have been waiting for Billings to do... Game on! 182/6

    2.3 pitched up... and Gayle chips straight to mid-on! A dolly of a catch for Root on the edge of the ring and the crowd goes silent! Massive opening strike for England, Willey canceling out the fact he's wearing a hairband by snaring the Universe Boss 12/1
    2.5 skied into the leg side, Morgan takes it - and then crashes into Curran, both players going for the ball! How has he held on to that?? The England pair take their time in getting up, but looks like just a case of winding. Could have been very nasty, that, both charging towards the ball - only at the last moment did Curran realise it was Morgan's 13/2
    7.5 short ball, huuuuuuuuuuuuge top edge... taken at the third attempt! Willey scurried in and got underneath it at square leg, the ball squirmed out and then he juggled it as he fell, before finally coming to a rest on his backside with the ball on his lap! That's Hetmyer gone, and West Indies in serious danger of being bowled out inside 10 overs here 35/8
    3.4 gottim, just a feather to the keeper! Superb line, Bravo stuck on the crease and feeling for it outside off, scraped the edge and zipping through! Jordan gets Bravo for the second match running, though he doesn't have to do his own catching this time... West Indies in trouble now 14/3
    3.5 pinned in front first ball! And Holder turns, heads off, there'll be no review! Jordan right on the money again, rapped him on the knee roll trying to flick across the line - looked pretty plumb, and West Indies are four down! 14/4
    5.1 short of a length, now Pooran nicks off! West Indies FIVE down inside the Powerplay! Similar to the Bravo dismissal, though Pooran was perhaps looking to run the single, just a bit of extra bounce and it clipped the shoulder of the bat... What a start from Jordan! 20/5
    5.5 THAT IS FOUR! Pace and bounce and Allen steers it to slip! England are running riot here, the ball zipping through as the lights take effect... They might not be needed for long 22/6
    6.5 goes big again, picks out deep midwicket this time! Brathwaite loses his footing heaving across the line and ends up in a heap - which is pretty much where West Indies are, seven down in the seventh over! 33/7
    11.5 flashed high and hard into the covers, Billings takes a fine catch running back, and that is emphatically that! 45/10
    10.1 zipped through the gate, and back goes the middle stump! Well, hello the second ten overs. This could be brief ... lovely length, utterly bamboozled 39/9
