  • It's a different deck used for this match and it has offered some extra zip and spin for the bowlers. Given how deep the English team bats, the Windies' bowlers will need to strike early to put pressure on them. Will we see yet another one-sided chase? Do join us in a short while to find out.
  • England's fielding was excellent today. They held onto all the catches coming their way and also earned a couple of run outs. Their bowling too was decent in the middle overs but towards the end, they lost the plot slightly. Mark Wood stood out from the rest, while Ben Stokes was also brilliant until he gave away 18 runs in his 7th over. It's a bit strange that Eoin Morgan didn't give Adil Rashid his full quota as the leggie looked quite effective in his six overs.
  • Wonderful batting by Shimron Hetmyer! He has powered the home team to a challenging total. After being put into bat, the Windies' openers once again adopted a cautious approach. Campbell then fell after yet another start while Gayle continued along with Hope. Soon after hitting his 50th ODI fifty, Chris Gayle was sent packing by Rashid and Shai followed him. The 76-run stand between Bravo and Hetmyer kept the hosts on track and prepared a launching pad for the end overs.
  • 49.6 Short ball wide outside off, slower in pace, Shimron reaches out for it and lifts it over point for a couple of runs. Windies end on 289/6! Good gesture from Ben Stokes as he goes up to Hetmyer to pat him on the back.
  • 49.5 FOUR! Here it is... 4th ODI hundred for Shimron Hetmyer in his short career. A super star in the making. Receives a full ball outside off and hammers it down the ground for a boundary. Jumps in joy and is all pumped up.
  • 49.4 A low full toss on middle, Nurse does the smart thing. Gently flicks it through mid-wicket and hands the strike back to Hetmyer.
  • 49.3 Play and a miss! Sharp delivery. Angling into the batsman from middle and leg, Ashley charges down to heave but misses.
  • 49.2 Just short of the fielder! Short and on the body of the batsman, Hetmyer pulls it across the line but it takes the top edge. Balloons in the air and falls just short of the fielder running in from long on. One run added to the total.
  • 49.1 Full and on middle, Nurse walks forward a bit and pushes it down to long off for a run. Hetmyer is back on strike, three away from his hundred.
  • 48.6 Length delivery outside off, Ashley cuts it wide of point and gets a single. 10 runs off the over. Tom Curran finishes off with the figures of 10-0-62-0. 280/6
  • 48.5 Slower delivery on middle and leg, Shimron flicks it away towards deep mid-wicket and gets a single.
  • 48.4 Length delivery on off and middle, Ashley looks to play it with a slanted bat but gets an inside edge onto his pads. They still take a single.
  • 48.3 Good length delivery outside off, Shimron hits it over covers but gets only a single as there is a fielder in the deep for protection. Hetmyer is screaming at himself because he has just got a single off that.
  • 48.2 SIX! Massive one. Curran looks for a yorker and misses. He ends up serving a juicy full toss on off and middle and Hetmyer heaves it straight behind the bowler's head for a maximum. It is in the second tier by the way. He is into his 90s with that gigantic hit.
  • 48.1 Good start for this over from Curran. Slower bouncer on middle and leg, Hetmyer looks to pull but misses.
  • 47.6 Good length ball on middle and off, Hetmyer goes back and powers it down to long on for one. 270/6
  • 47.5 Slower one, full and angling in on middle, Nurse slog sweeps it to deep mid-wicket. Not much timing, only a run results.
  • 47.5 No ball called again, this time for overstepping. A slower length ball outside off, Hetmyer hits it across the line to deep mid-wicket for a run. Free Hit coming up again...
  • 47.4 An off cutter at 108 kph, completely deceiving the batsman. Nurse fails to put bat on ball and is hit on the pads. It falls beside the pitch and they steal a leg bye.
  • 47.3 Shapes up for a big shot, Hetmyer. The connection to the low full toss ain't proper and it goes rolling down to long off for a run.
  • 47.3 No ball called for a high full toss. Stokes immediately puts in his apology. Nurse pulls it to deep square leg for a run. Free Hit coming...
  • 47.2 Hangs on the back foot and yanks a length ball to wide long on for a run.
  • 47.1 A low full toss, following the batsman down the leg side, Nurse forces it down to long off and takes a single.
  • 46.6 No, he cannot. Good length delivery outside off, Ashley hits it towards the fielder at long off and takes a single. 13 runs off the over. A great one for the Windies. 260/6
  • 46.6 No ball. Full toss on off, Hetmyer hits it towards cover and takes a single. The ball is too high according to the square leg umpire and he indicates a no ball to his partner who in turn stretches his one arm out. Free Hit to follow. Can Nurse hit this one for a maximum?
  • 46.5 Good length delivery on middle and leg, Nurse gets an inside edge onto his pads. They take a single.
  • 46.4 Full length delivery on off, Shimron hits it towards long off and takes a single. He is furious with himself and feels that he has missed out on this one.
  • 46.3 FOUR! Excellent from young Hetmyer. Slower delivery bowled at 106 kph. Curran lands it short and Hetmyer hits it over covers for the second boundary of the over.
  • 46.2 Good comeback. Good length delivery outside off, Shimron looks to hit it across the line with a slanted-bat but misses.
  • 46.1 FOUR! Great start to the over. Full toss on off and middle, Hetmyer hits it straight over mid off and the ball crosses the rope on a bounce for a boundary. He moves to 79 with that one.
  • Tom Curran back for his final spell.
  • 45.6 Goes on the back foot and punches it down the ground for a run. 247/6
  • 45.5 Too full in length on off, Nurse drives it through mid off for a run.
  • 45.4 A slower length ball outside off, Shimron once again sits back to heave but has to generate all the power by himself. Does so but only manages to send it as far as the wide long on fielder for a single.
  • 45.3 Angling down the leg side, Nurse fails to flick and it goes off his pads to square leg. They cross.
  • 45.3 Wide! Stokes loses his line as there is a right-hander now on the strike. Slips one down the leg side.
  • 45.2 This boy is one heck of a slogger. Once again keeps all the weight on the back leg and heaves a length ball down to deep mid-wicket. There is a fielder strategically placed there, so only a run.
  • 45.1 Edgy! Fullish and on off, Nurse tries to cover the line and push it out on the off side but it takes the outside edge and runs down to third man for a run.
  • 44.6 Length delivery outside off, Nurse pushes it towards cover and keeps the strike for the start of next over. Good over from Mark Wood, 5 runs and a wicket off it. He finishes off with the figures of 10-0-38-1. Brilliant stuff. 240/6
  • 44.5 On middle and leg, Shimron flicks it away towards mid-wicket for a single.
  • 44.4 Good length delivery outside off, Nurse guides it towards third man and takes a single.
  • Ashley Nurse arrives. He can surely tonk a few.
  • 44.3 OUT! Bowled 'em. Wood finally gets a wicket and he absolutely deserved it. Good length delivery on off. It is bowled at 144.0 kph and it reverse swings at that pace. Yes, it did. Brathwaite looks to heave it across the line but misses and the ball hits the top of middle stump. Carlos Brathwaite, who can be lethal in the last 5 overs, walks back dejected.
  • 44.2 Excellent. Just excellent. Yorker on leg, Hetmyer can just manage to get his bat down and guide it towards point for a single.
  • 44.1 Good length delivery outside off, Brathwaite pulls it towards cow corner and takes a single.
  • 43.6 SIX! This one has disappeared. A length ball this time, Shimron takes his front leg out of the line and clobbers it deep into the stand at cow corner. 18 from the over to spoil Stokes' bowling figures. 235/5
  • 43.5 Fine fielding in the deep! A low full toss outside off, Hetmyer heaves it over mid-wicket. Roy rushes across to his right in the deep, stops the ball and then releases it as he thought that his legs will make contact with the boundary line. Jason then gathers the ball again and sends it to the keeper. Saves two for his team. England's ground fielding has been excellent.
  • 43.4 Quality bowling this time by Stokes. Spears in a yorker on middle at 144 kph, Carlos digs it out at the last moment on the leg side and takes a run.
  • 43.3 SIX! This is enormous. Thunderous blow. Deja vu, Stokes has seen this before. A short delivery outside off, Brathwaite attacks it with all his might and plunders it over long off. Raw power!
  • 43.2 Full again, sliding down, Brathwaite nudges it fine down the leg side for a couple.
  • 43.1 A mishit! Fullish and on off, Hetmyer tries to heave but ends up mistiming it over mid off. It falls safely in the deep and they take a run.
  • 42.6 Brilliant over from Wood. Bowls a yorker on off, Hetmyer only manages to edge it towards the third man region and take a single. Just 3 runs off it. Excellent bowling! 217/5
  • 42.5 Good length delivery on off, Hetmyer makes room by moving to his leg stump and hits it straight to the fielder at mid off. Carlos Brathwaite comes out of his crease for a run but Shimron sends him back.
  • 42.4 Back of a length on the stumps, Carlos pulls it away for a run.
  • 42.3 Bouncer. A well directed one from Wood. Brathwaite sways away from it.
  • 42.2 Back of a length delivery, Hetmyer pulls it away towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 42.1 Full length delivery on middle and leg, Shimron drives it straight to the fielder at mid on.
  • Mark Wood continues
  • 41.6 Bouncer on body, Brathwaite bends back and gets away from the ball. A good over from Stokes, just 4 runs off it. 214/5
  • 41.5 The batsman drives the ball to long off and collects a single.
  • 41.4 On the leg pole, Carlos flicks it to mid off and change ends.
  • 41.3 Yorker on off, Hetmyer jams it out to mid off and runs for a single.
  • 41.2 On the pad, Carlos flicks it to mid-wicket and take a single.
  • 41.1 On the 5th stump line, the batsman looks to defend but is beaten.
  • Ben Stokes back on.
  • 40.6 Back of a length delivery pitched on middle and leg. The ball is going away with the angle, Carlos looks to flick but gets hit on the thigh pad. They steal a single and the umpire signals it as a leg bye. 210/5
  • 40.5 Good bowling. Slower delivery outside off, Brathwaite looks to hit it on the off side but gets beaten by the pace.
  • 40.4 On the p[ads pitching on leg, Carlos looks to flick but gets hit on the pads.
  • 40.3 Full length delivery on middle and leg. It is bowled with the seam up. Brathwaite looks to flick it but his bat gets jammed on the pads. The ball hits his front pad. The bowler thinks he has got the batsman but the umpire thinks otherwise. Remember England have no review left here.
  • 40.2 Brilliant from Wood. He looks to bowl a yorker and almost gets it right. It ends up being a very low full toss and Hetmyer just hits it towards mid off and takes a single.
  • 40.1 Good length delivery on off, Shimron hits it to the fielder at cover.
  • Powerplay 3 time! Now, a maximum of 5 fielders will be allowed outside the circle till the end. Mark Wood will continue...
  • 39.6 Brilliantly disguised slower one from Curran. It is on a length bowled at 108 kph. Carlos is deceived by the lack of pace on it and he gets hit on his gloves. 208/5
  • 39.5 In the air but safe again. Good length delivery around off. It stops and comes onto Brathwaite. He checks his shot and almost ends up chipping it to the fielder at cover-point. Luckily for him, it falls just short of the fielder.
  • 39.4 Good length delivery outside off, Brathwaite guides it to the fielder at short third man.
  • 39.3 On middle and leg, Carlos tucks it to the fielder at mid-wicket.
  • 39.2 Good length delivery outside off, Brathwaite cuts it straight to the fielder at point.
  • 39.1 In the air but safe. Slower delivery outside off, Hetmyer looks to go over long on but gets no timing on it. The ball goes uppishly wide of long off but way short of the fielder. The batsmen pick up a single.
  • 38.6 Helps it off his pads to the on side but not in the gap. 207/5
  • 38.5 Defended off the back foot by the batsman.
  • Carlos Brathwaite is the new man out in the middle for Windies.
  • 38.4 OUT! Holder is well short of the crease! A full ball angling into the batsman, Jason is beaten in pace as he fails to connect with his attempted flick shot. It deflects off his pads towards cover-point and the Windies' skipper comes out of the crease in search of a run. Hetmyer sends him back but before he can reach, Roy has attacked the ball and scored a direct hit. The square leg umpire goes upstairs but Holder is not waiting. He is already on his bike. The home team has lost half its side.
  • Another lbw appeal and then there is a run out shout! This time it looks close, in fact, Jason Holder is walking. We still have to wait for the official confirmation though...
  • 38.3 This one takes the inside half of Shimron's bat and rolls in the gap at mid-wicket. One run added to the total.
  • 38.3 Wide! A touch harsh on the bowler. He saw Hetmyer backing up to make room and hence bowled it wide outside off. Shimron flashed and missed. The umpire stretched his arms much to the disappointment of the bowler and the keeper.
  • 38.2 FOUR! Not in any control but still he will get a boundary. Tremendous power again from Hetmyer. Backs away to pull the short ball but it takes the top edge and flies over the bowler's head. Root runs after it from mid on but fails to do anything about it.
  • 38.1 Huge shout for an lbw as Holder fails to flick a length ball on his pads. They are busy appealing as the batsmen cross. The point fielder has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. Quite an eventful ball. The replays suggest that it would have missed leg.
  • 37.6 Fuller on middle and leg, Holder pushes it towards mid on and takes a quick single. Brings up the 200 for Windies. They will look to up the ante and cross the 300-run mark. 200/4
  • 37.5 Almost a wicket. Slower delivery on off, Holder is early in his shot and ends up chipping it to the fielder. Luckily for him it falls way short of the mid off fielder and wide of the bowler.
  • 37.4 Slower delivery on the pads, Holder hits it uppishly over mid-wicket and gets a brace.
  • 37.3 Good length delivery on off, Jason punches it to the fielder at cover.
  • Jason Holder's turn to bat.
  • 37.2 OUT! Brilliant fielding from Rashid. Back of the hand slower one from Curran. He bowls it outside off stump. Shimron reaches it and guides it towards short third man. Bravo looks for a quick single, Hetmyer was hesitant but follows his partner's call. Adil Rashid at short third man moves quickly to his left and has a shy at keeper's end. He hits the stumps and the umpire goes upstairs. The replays show Bravo was nowhere in the frame and the 76-run stand is broken. Not what the Windies wanted but England will take it with both hands. Their fielding has improved by leaps and bounds in this match.
  • Direct hit! England are appealing and then celebrating. It appears that Darren Bravo is short. Let's find out in the replays...
  • 37.1 FIFTY! Good length delivery on the pads, Hetmyer nudges it wide of the fielder at deep mid-wicket. The batsmen run quickly and come back for the second. A very sensible innings this from the young man to reach his 3rd ODI fifty.
  • 36.6 Bouncer to end the over. Bravo sways away from it and lets it go to the keeper. 195/3
  • 36.5 On the pads, Bravo just tucks it away fine of the fine leg fielder. Adil Rashid runs to his left and stops the ball with a dive. Meanwhile Bravo comes back for the second.
  • 36.4 Shorter delivery on middle and leg, Hetmyer pulls it towards deep mid-wicket and gets a single.
  • 36.3 Good length delivery on middle and off, Shimron hits it powerfully with a cross-bat but straight to the fielder at mid off.

  • Mark Wood back on.

  • 34.6 Wide! Once again Plunkett fails to control his attempted slower one. Slips one down the leg side, Bravo tries his best to pull but fails.
  • 34.5 Angles in a length ball from 'round the wicket. Puts it on middle and leg, Bravo meets it with a dead straight bat as he blocks.

  • 34.3 A slower ball again, on the shorter side around middle, Hetmyer tries to ramp it over the keeper but fails to make any connection.
  • 34.3 Switches to over the wicket for Shimron. Attempts a slower one (108 kph) but sprays his full ball way wide outside off. An easy leave for the batsman. Wide called.
  • 34.2 Back of a length delivery outside off, from 'round the wicket, Bravo opens the face of his bat and pushes it to third man for a single.
  • 34.1 Short in length on middle and leg, Hetmyer pulls it down to deep mid-wicket for a run.
  • 33.6 Walks forward and bunts a full ball down through mid on for a run. A good comeback by Moeen after giving a biggie off the first ball. 174/3

  • 32.6 Good length delivery on middle and off, Hetmyer gets an inside edge onto his pads. The ball goes to the off side and they take a single. A good over from Plunkett, just 4 runs off it and made Hetmyer missed a couple of deliveries. 165/3
  • 32.5 Back of a length delivery on middle and leg, Hetmyer looks to pull but misses. There is a noise as the ball goes past the bat and hence there is a stifled appeal from the bowler and the keeper. The umpire turns it down. The replay suggests there was no bat involved.
  • 32.4 Again a slower one. This time it is shorter in length. Shimron looks to pull but hits it straight back to the bowler through the inner half of the bat.
  • 32.3 Brilliant change of pace. A slower bouncer on middle, it is pitched on a length. Hetmyer looks to pull it by getting on one knee but misses.
  • 32.2 Length delivery around off, Darren cuts it towards point and takes a single.
  • 32.1 Good length delivery on middle and off, Shimron pulls it through square leg for a single.

  • 31.6 Good shot. Shorter in length outside off, Shimron punches it off his back foot through covers. Eoin Morgan gives it a chase and stops the ball from going to the fence. The batsmen meanwhile come back for the third. 161/3

  • 30.5 WIDE! Plunkett comes over the wicket for this one and bowls a bouncer. It is too high and the umpire signals it as a wide.

  • 30.2 Full on middle and leg, Shimron hits it straight to the fielder at mid off.

  • Liam Plunkett is back into the attack.
  • 29.6 Quicker and on middle, helped to mid-wicket for one. 9 from the over. 144/3

  • 29.4 Shortish and on middle, punched to mid-wicket for one.
  • 29.3 Turns it off his pads through mid-wicket and straightaway shouts two. Will only get a run as Stokes is quickly onto the ball in the deep.

  • 29.1 Flatter and on off, Bravo gets back in defense.

  • 27.5 INSIDE EDGE! It's indeed there and Bravo gets the on-field decision overturned. A tossed up ball landing full around leg. It straightens a bit from there as Darren leans forward to play at it. He though fails to middle his shot and is rapped on the pads. They appeal and the finger goes up. Bravo wastes no time in taking the DRS and the Ultra Edge confirms the involvement of some wood.
  • Darren Bravo is given out lbw. He has immediately opted for the review. Is there an inside edge?

  • 25.2 On off, Hetmyer pushes it to point.
  • Shimron Hetmyer is the new batsman.
  • 25.1 OUT! Hope holes out. After surviving a close stumping call in the previous over, Shai does not last long and walks back. Shorter in length on middle, the ball rises onto the batsman. Hope looks to pull it but does not time it well and the ball goes straight into the hands of Johnny Bairstow at deep square leg. He does not make any mistake and takes a very comfortable catch. Stokes is up in celebration and so are all the English supporters. Yet another start not converted by Shai.

  • 24.2 Not out! Hope survives. Tossed up delivery outside off, Hope stretches out to defend it but misses. Buttler collects it behind the stumps and takes the bails off in a flash. The players appeal and the square leg umpire takes it upstairs. It is a close call but the third umpire is convinced his foot was back in line and signals not out. Shai is saved by just a few inches there.
  • 24.1 SIX! Mammoth. Tossed up delivery on off, it is overpitched by Rashid. Hope gets on one knee and heaves it over the mid-wicket fence for a maximum.
  • Stumping appeal has been taken upstairs. England are looking confident. Let's see...

  • Darren Bravo walks in at number 4.
  • 20.2 OUT! Bowled 'em! The 'Universe Boss' is out of here! A flighted ball outside off and turning inward, Gayle looks to go for the big one. He is too early into the shot and does not make any contact on the ball. It goes on to kiss the off pole. The bails are disturbed and Rashid has picked up a huge wicket here. The batting hero of Windies in the first game has to leave.
  • 20.1 Beautiful ball! A flighted googly on middle and it turns away from the lefty who was looking to defend. The ball beats the outside edge.
  • 19.6 Another bouncer but this time it is well-aimed. Hope ducks under it and lets it go. 98/1
  • 19.6 Wide! Sprayed way down leg side. Given wide by the umpire.
  • 19.5 Fifty! Full toss on the pads, worked away towards mid-wicket for a single by Gayle. That brings up his FIFTY! It is Chris Gayle's 50th fifty in ODI cricket. Absolute boss this man! Will look for another century here.
  • 19.4 Dabbed down to third man for a single.
  • 19.4 Wide! Effort ball from Stokes but it bounces way too much and goes well above the head of the ducking Hope. Signalled wide by the umpire.

  • 18.1 A flatter and straighter one outside the off stump, Gayle looks to guide it down to third man but the ball beats him on the outside.
  • The groundsmen are out in the middle. They are filling up some sand in the bowler run-up area. Meanwhile, Adil Rashid is on for a bowl now, much earlier than he was on in the first game.

  • 17.5 Played to the point region by the batsman.

  • 16.5 Swing and miss! Slightly shorter and outside off, Hope goes for the pull but misses. It brushes the thigh pad and goes to the keeper. Just a single so far in the over.

  • 16.3 Angles it into the batter, Hope manages to get his bat down in time and keeps it out.

  • 16.1 Shortish and on middle, Gayle evades it.
  • Liam Plunkett is back into the attack.
  • Drinks! England have managed to break the opening stand but Shai Hope who has walked in looked good so far. Gayle at the other end is also looking in form. The visitors will look for a wicket or two soon or they could be staring at a big total once more...
  • 15.6 A low full toss, Gayle strokes it to the right of covers and takes a run. 84/1
  • 15.5 Slower ball on a fuller length, Gayle guides it to point.
  • 15.4 Pulled nicely but only a single! It is towards deep square leg. Should have been a couple but Gayle is happy with a run.
  • 15.3 Good length again on off, Hope defends it towards point. Hope wants a run but Gayle is never going to run for those. Hope however, seems to be very angry.
  • 15.2 A little too straight, Hope finds the man at mid-wicket with his flick.
  • 15.1 Good start to the over! A yorker on middle, Gayle does well to jam it out towards mid off and gets to the other end.
  • 14.6 Make that 5 dots. A good comeback after going for a maximum on the very first ball. Full and wide outside off, Hope mistimes it to covers. 81/1
  • 14.5 4 dots after the maximum. Shortish and on off, Hope blocks it out.
  • 14.4 Down the leg side again, Hope misses the flick and gets hit on the pads. He would feel a boundary opportunity goes abegging there.
  • 14.3 Wide outside off, left alone.
  • 14.2 Fuller this time again but on off, Hope strokes it back to the bowler.
  • 14.1 DROPPED AND SIX! Difficult to call that a drop however, that was a very tough chance. Full and on the pads, Hope stylishly flicks it. He has no intentions of keeping it down. It goes towards deep mid-wicket. Curran there positions himself inside the ropes and then stretches one hand up but can't hang on. It then pops over the fence. Heart-in-mouth moment for Hope but he will be relieved now. A maximum to end the last over one to begin this one.
  • 13.6 SIX! Picked the slower one and it has been dispatched! Spoils the over. Short and down the leg side, Gayle waits for it and then pulls it over the backward square leg fence. 75/1

  • 13.4 On the shorter side, Hope goes back and pulls it through square leg for a single.
  • 13.3 Uppish but wide! Full and outside off, Gayle opens the face of the bat. It goes uppishly but wide of point and down to third man for a single.

  • 12.6 Another easy single to end the over. A length ball just outside off, played towards third man with an open-faced bat for a run. 65/1

  • 12.3 On the hips of the lefty this time, tucked down fine on the leg side for a run.
  • 12.2 Bowls it on the hips of Hope first up, Shai dabs it down towards fine leg for a run and gets off the mark.
  • Shai Hope walks in at number 3.
  • 12.1 OUT! Campbell has pulled it straight to mid on! England pick up their first. A short of a length ball outside off, John Campbell has the width to stretch his arms and pull that but unfortunately for him, he has hit straight to Moeen Ali who takes a simple catch. Looks really disappointed as that ball sat up to be hit. Anyways, the 61-run stand has come to an end.
  • 11.6 SIX! All the way! That has gone the distance with the assistance of the wind. Short and on middle, Gayle rocks back and pulls it towards long on. The fielder there for a second must have felt he is in with a chance but because of the wind, it takes it over the fence. Ends the over with a maximum. Just the seven from it though. 61/0
  • 11.5 The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 11.4 Rocks onto the back foot and punches it through covers for a run.
  • 11.3 Tosses it up on middle, kept out.
  • 11.2 NOT OUT! It brushes the wrist band, then it is off the elbow and then off the pad. Also, the impact is outside the leg stump. So the on-field call is the right one and England lose their only review. This is bowled on the leg pole, the batsman goes for the sweep. It goes off something, just misses the stumps and Buttler takes it in between his legs. A muted appeal from him and the bowler but the umpire shakes his head. After a brief discussion, the English players go for the review. On the first replay it goes really close past the glove so it is inconclusive whether it has brushed the glove or not. The third umpire asks for the Ultra Edge and after a few minutes, it is finally available. Ultra Edge then shows some spike as the ball passes the wrist band. Since that is not part of the glove, it is termed in the batsman's favor. The third umpire then goes on to check for LBW but even that is ruled out as the impact was outside leg. Campbell survives.
  • Review time! A mild appeal for a caught behind has been turned down. England go for the review though. Campbell is the man in question.
  • 11.1 Flatter and on the pads, Campbell looks to flick but it hits his pads and rolls to short fine leg.
  • 10.6 The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. 54/0
  • 10.5 Around off, Gayle pushes it to the off side and calls for a single but then quickly sends Campbell back.

  • 10.3 Yorker outside off, John looks to squeeze it out towards the off side but misses.
  • 10.2 The batsman has played it to the point region.
  • 10.1 FOUR! 50-RUN STAND IS UP! A short ball, around middle, Campbell swivels and pulls it through square leg for a boundary!
  • POWERPLAY 2 time. 4 fielders allowed outside the 30-yard circle till the 40th over. LIAM PLUNKETT called on to bowl.
  • 9.6 Short and outside off, punched straight to short extra cover. 49/0 in Powerplay 1. Decent beginning again. 49/0
  • 9.5 Landed outside off, Chris lunges to defend but is beaten by the away turn.
  • 9.4 Outside off, punched straight to Eoin Morgan at short extra cover who fumbles and the ball goes through. Two runs taken.
  • 9.3 The batsman has played it towards mid-wicket. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 9.2 Works this through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 9.1 SIX! SMOKED! New balls please! And probably, new bowler please! Full and down the leg side, Gayle gets down and sweeps it massively over square leg. The ball takes flight, finds an obstacle in the stands, hits them and then goes out!
  • 8.6 The batsman defends it from within the crease. One run added to the total. 39/0
  • 8.5 The batsman defends it from within the crease.
  • 8.4 FOUR! This would be expected. Bang bang. A length ball, on middle, Gayle comes down the track and hits it over mid on for a boundary!
  • 8.3 Backs away and smashes this short ball straight to mid off. He is right at the edge of the single. Don't think the fielders are expecting Gayle to drop and run for singles.
  • 8.2 Full and around off, watchfully pushed towards cover.
  • 8.1 A short ball, around off, Campbell looks to pull but is a bit late on that one and miscues his shot. The ball lobs off the top edge but just clears short mid-wicket. A single taken.
  • 7.6 Ahh... Gayle just comes down the track a bit too early. Moeen sees that and fires it on the pads. The Universe boss is unable to swing it away. Is hit on the pads. 33/0
  • 7.5 Full again, but no flight this time, pushed back to Ali.
  • 7.4 SIX! SMASH! There comes the first. Full and around middle, Gayle just swings it cleanly over long on!

  • 6.2 Outside off, driven towards mid off.
  • 6.1 Outside off, pushed towards point.
  • 5.6 FOUR! Ho ho ho! John is enjoying himself now! Full on middle and leg, Campbell gets down, closes his eyes and just paddles this over short fine leg for a boundary! No coach will like this but... 26/0
  • 5.5 FOUR! Curran is not amused. How did that go? A length ball, around middle, Campbell just worked it through square leg. There is a man at deep mid-wicket while fine leg is up. The ball races away!
  • 5.4 Slower ball, fuller in length, outside off, Campbell does not pick it, looks to drive but is late and misses. That was delivered from the back of the hand. Clever.
  • 5.3 Full and around off, pushed towards point.
  • 5.2 Shorter in length, angling away, Gayle looks to pull but the ball comes sluggishly off the surface and goes of the inner half towards mid on. A single taken.
  • 5.1 Full and around middle, solidly defended.
  • 4.6 Slower delivery, 127 kph, fuller in length, CG misses his tuck and the ball goes off the inside edge, onto the pads, through square leg. A run taken. 17/0

  • 4.1 THROUGH HIM. Slightly short of full, outside off, Campbell looks to drive but the ball comes in a long way and goes between bat and pad, narrowly missing the off stump.
  • 3.6 Surprising. Gayle looks to go big. This is just the 4th over. A length ball on off, CG comes down the track and swings hard but is nowhere near the pitch of the ball. Gets a thick inside edge onto his boots and the ball lobs up in the air but luckily for him, it goes wide of Curran as he rushes to his right. 14/0
  • 3.5 Fuller and around middle, pushed towards mid on.
  • 3.4 Full and around middle, pushed towards cover.

  • England skipper, Eoin Morgan, says that it looks like a good wicket with one side of the boundary being a very short. Does not feel that the track will change much over the course of 100 overs but hopes to limit Windies to a smaller score. Informs that Woakes misses out and Tom Curran comes in his place.
  • TOSS - Time for the spin of the coin. Holder flips it, Heads is the call from Eoin Morgan and Heads it is. ENGLAND ELECT TO CHASE.
  • PITCH REPORT - David Lloyd has a look at the 'fresh' pitch and says that it looks EXACTLY the same. Cannot see a blade of grass on the track and it just seems to be relaid.
  • WEATHER REPORT - Slightly overcast conditions welcome us today though there is no rain forecast.
  • What we witnessed in the first game was a massacre from both teams. But let us be honest. The bowling was poor from both sides and the fielding, well, the less said, the better. The Brits showed that they are better chasers but given the way the Windies fielded, even 400 could have been chased down. On the other hand, England ere not too great either, in the field. To a cricket supporter, it was not the best game of cricket, brutally put. Let us hope we get clinical stuff today.
  • 724/12 in 98.4 overs. This was the scenario in the first ODI. Same ground, similar pitch. What will be the case today? Hello and a warm welcome to the second ODI between Windies and England at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados.

  • Windies skipper Jason Holder says he is really pleased and credits his boys for their performance. States Hetmyer played really well and took them to a competitive total. Singles out Cottrell's spell to be a game changer. Says those early wickets gave them momentum and those two wickets in one over once again got them back in the game. On being asked about Shimron Hetmyer's performance the Windies skipper said that it is really good to see young players step up to the occasion and says Shimron Hetmyer has been a big player at such a young age for the country. Ends by thanking the crowd for their support.
  • Man of the Match - Shimron Hetmyer says he just wanted too keep going and rotate the strike. States, him and Bravo wanted to see how far they could go. On his improvement on playing both sides of the pitch, the young batter said he just trying to work it both side of the ground. Says it is a work in progress for him and he is continuing to learn and progress. Insists that he does not want to be a one dimensional player. On being asked how was the mood before they came to field he states the mood was good as usual and they just came out and wanted to do things according to the plan. On being asked about his celebration after the century Hetmyer said it was nothing big but just something for his girlfriend.
  • England skipper Eoin Morgan says that he always knew it was going to go right till the end. Believes they did a lot of good things today. Says they fielded well and bowled well. States that they were going good with the bat but could not capatalise on it. On facing Sheldon Cottrell the English skipper states that it was his first time facing him and it was a very different challenge. Says he swings the ball in and he is a left-hander so it is difficult. Admits they failed to nail down the partnership today and that cost them.
  • With the game slipping away from Windies, Jason Holder took the onus on himself and first removed the dangerous Ben Stokes from the crease. He didn't stop there and picked the wickets of Jos Buttler and Tom Curran off consecutive deliveries. That proved to be the match-turning moment and the Windies just capitalized. The bearded boys, Moeen and Adil, put up a fight for a while but once again Sheldon Cottrell returned to do the damage. He finished with a 5-wicket haul and played a key role in Windies' victory.
  • The chase started on a wrong note for England as they lost both their openers cheaply. Sheldon Cottrell was in his elements as he delivered initial blows to the Englishmen. Post that, Root and Morgan stitched in a handy stand followed by a 99-run partnership between the English skipper and Ben Stokes. Both the batsmen looked set to see the touring team home but then Cottrell was brought back into the attack and he dismissed Morgan. The depth in England's batting meant that they kept the upper hand as yet another vital alliance was formed between Buttler and Stokes. The real action though began from there...
  • Windies have done it! They have broken the deadlock, their first win over England in ODIs since 2014. In between, they experienced 10 losses in a row. What a turnaround from them! This game swung like a pendulum. Both teams kept bouncing back whenever put under pressure but eventually it was the home team landing the knockout punch. A very entertaining game for the crowd and the series is now levelled 1-1!

  • 42.3 Shorter delivery on off, Ali punches it off the back foot and hits it towards cover for a single.
  • 42.2 Tossed up on middle and off, Moeen defends it with a straight bat.
  • 42.1 Flighted delivery on middle and leg. Moeen tucks it towards mid-wicket and goes for a quick single. The fielder has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. There is no one backing up so they get one more run. Two runs in all taken from that ball.
  • 41.6 NOT OUT! Daylight! Windies just got carried away there. Now, the home team also has no review left. Back of a length delivery outside off, Rashid stays back to push inside the line but misses. The keeper collects the ball and Holder appeals along with Shai Hope. Not given and they take the DRS. The replays detect no wood. End of an eventful over, 2 runs and 2 wickets from it. 233/7
  • The Windies' players have gone upstairs for caught behind. They think they have got another wicket here. It looked to the naked eye like there was no bat involved but let's see what the Snicko has to say.
  • 41.5 Yorker, Rashid does extremely well to dig it out at the last moment.
  • Adil Rashid walks in next.
  • 41.4 OUT! Given lbw! Well, let me tell you, Tom Curran is very unlucky here. No DRS available for England and Holder is roaring now. A length ball on middle and leg, angling down, Curran tries to work it around but misses and is hit high on the pads. The appeal is made and the finger is up immediately. The replays show that it's clearly going down leg. A dejected Tom is on his way back. On a hat-trick, Jason...
  • Tom Curran is the new batsman.
  • 41.3 OUT! What a big wicket for Windies. They have got back in the game. Slower delivery on length on off, Buttler initially looks to drive but then pulls out of it. He ends up going at it half-heartedly and chips it uppishly towards covers. Shimron Hetmyer takes a very simple catch. His second catch of the game.
  • 41.2 Almost a run out. Good length delivery on middle, Ali tucks it towards mid-wicket and gets on his bike for a single. Oshane Thomas gets to the ball quickly. He dives picks up the ball and throws, all in one motion. His shy at the bowler's end misses. Had he hit, Ali was gone for all money.
  • 41.1 Full toss on middle, Buttler flicks it towards mid-wicket and takes a single.
  • 40.6 Flatter and shorter on middle, Moeen moves back to cut but is cramped for room. Just about manages to keep it out at the last moment. 231/5
  • 40.5 Fetches a full ball from outside off and hammers it down to long on for a run. Good again from Bishoo.
  • 40.4 Too full in length on off, it's driven through the line but straight to the cover fielder.

  • 40.2 Goes on the back foot and punches it to sweeper cover for one.

  • 39.6 OUT! Caught. He has hit the ball and Stokes has to walk back. Full length delivery outside off. It is pitched on the rough. Ben Stokes looks to hit it through the line but seems to have got an outside edge. The ball goes straight behind to Shai Hope who takes a regulation catch and jumps in joy. The keeper and bowler are up in celebration and the umpire raises the dreaded finger. Stokes consults his partner and takes the review. The replays show that he hit the turf but before that it took the outside edge too. The Snicko confirms there was bat involved and the well-set Stokes walks back to the pavilion. He is fuming in anger on his way to the dressing room. 228/5
  • Ben Stokes is given out caught behind. Windies are celebrating but the English all-rounder is not going anywhere. He has a chat with his partner and takes the DRS. Has the bat hit the turf and not the ball?
  • 39.5 Length delivery on the stumps, Ben taps it back to the bowler.
  • 39.4 Length delivery outside off, Stokes cuts it wide of the point fielder and gets a brace.
  • 39.3 SIX! Catch is the call from Holder but that is a crowd catch. Good length delivery on off and middle, Stokes gets on his back foot and heaves it over the mid-wicket fence for a maximum. The fielder in the deep there just sees it sail over the fence.
  • 39.2 On middle and leg, Jos tucks it away towards mid-wicket and rotates the strike.
  • 39.1 Yorker length delivery on leg, Stokes gets his bat down in time and it takes the inside edge before going onto the pads. The ball goes towards the fine leg region and they take a single.
  • 38.6 Goes on the back foot and punches it to covers. Dot ball to end a 7-run over. Only one bad ball really in it. 218/4

  • 38.4 Off the arm! A leg spinner around off, turning away, Jos tries reverse sweeping it but misses.
  • 38.3 SIX! Gone into the crowd! Just cannot bowl short to this batsman. An attempted googly by Bishoo but he lands it way too short. Buttler gets enough time to go back and rocket it over wide long on.
  • 38.2 A conventional hit, across the line and with the turn through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 38.1 Hit hard but failed to beat short third man. A flatter and shorter ball on middle, Stokes reverse sweeps but not in the gap.
  • 37.6 Wake up call. Shorter in length, Buttler looks to defend but it flicks his gloves and strikes him on his helmet before going behind to the keeper. No sign of danger as Buttler looks fine to continue. 211/4
  • 37.5 Back of a length delivery on middle and leg, Buttler looks to defend it but it comes off the lower half of his bat and bounces just over the stumps. Fortunately for Buttler it does not clip the stumps.
  • 37.4 Slower delivery outside off, Buttler looks to hit it towards point but misses.
  • 37.3 FOUR! Not from the middle but still gets the desired result. Full length delivery around off, Buttler lofts it over mid off. Ashley Nurse there is not at the edge of the circle, he is inside a bit. He jumps and tries to catch it but cannot get his hands to it and the ball goes away to the fence.

  • 36.2 FOUR! Excellent shot. Shorter in length from Bishoo. Buttler waits for it and punches it off his back foot through covers for a boundary. Jos has got going here.
  • 36.1 Shorter delivery outside off, Buttler looks to play the reverse sweep but is unable to do so because of the extra bounce on it.
  • 35.6 The line is straight, Jos moves inside the line and turns it off his pads through square leg. Wants two but will have to satisfy with a run. 10 from the over. 200/4

  • The reserve umpire is out with a bag of balls.
  • 35.4 SIX! This is a shot from a batsman known for clean hitting. Holder overpitches around off, Buttler brings down a straight bat and launches it over the bowler's head. It crashes into the sightscreen and seems to have lost its shape. No, in fact they have lost it. New ball please...
  • 35.3 Slower one, an off cutter around leg, some extra bounce as well. Stokes tries flicking but is surprised by the extra lift. It takes the leading edge and lobs in the air towards the vacant extra cover region. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • Fine leg drops back and third man comes up...
  • 35.2 Fine shot and a good piece of fielding by Campbell. A length ball angling down the leg side, Stokes picks it off his pads and flicks it over backward square leg. Campbell in the deep puts in a good run before diving and stopping the ball. Saves two.
  • 35.1 Pitches it up and outside off, it's stroked sweetly down to long off for a run. Under 100 needed now.
  • Jason Holder brings himself into the attack.
  • 34.6 Shorter in length around off, the southpaw takes a single by punching it wide of the cover fielder. 100 runs more required off 90 balls. Windies need wickets here to tighten the screws on England. 190/4

  • 34.1 Beautiful from Bishoo. Leg spinner pitching on off, Buttler stretches out to drive it but misses. Hope takes the bails off in a flash and puts in a stifled appeal. The square leg umpire does not even bother taking it upstairs and signals it not out.
  • Devendra Bishoo to bowl again.
  • 33.6 FOUR! This time towards the leg side. Shorter delivery by Brathwaite, Stokes rocks onto his back foot and pulls it over mid-wicket. The ball bounces before the rope and goes away for a boundary. Stokes clearly is winning this battle against Brathwaite. 184/4

  • 32.1 Good length delivery on middle and leg, Stokes guides it to the fielder at mid-wicket.
  • Drinks break. 120 needed off 108 balls. This match is still in favour of England. Ben Stokes holds the key from hereon as for the new batsmen coming in, it won't be easy to start playing shots from the word go. Windies have done well to hang in there but they need wickets at regular intervals as the Englishmen bat very deep. We're heading for a tight finish.
  • 31.6 A length ball on middle, Ben brings down a straight bat and punches it to long on for one. 170/4

  • Jos Buttler replaces his skipper.
  • 30.2 OUT! The 99-run stand has been broken! Cottrell strikes back. Full length delivery on middle and leg, Morgan looks to heave it over mid-wicket. He is early into his shot and gets no timing on it. The ball goes high up in the air and Shimron Hetmyer comes running forward from the deep and dives in front to take a great catch. Ashley Nurse is a relieved man here, as he had dropped Morgan earlier. The English skipper misses out on a well-deserved century but he has put his team in control. They need 131 more runs off 118 balls.

  • 25.3 Goes back and punches it through the line. Carlos Brathwaite dives across to his right at short extra cover to make the stop.

  • 16.6 SIX! This one has gone the distance. Morgan is not going to back down from playing the pull shot. This time the 'round the wicket angle of the bowler worked in his favour. It's short on middle and leg, Eoin swivels on the back foot and pummels it over backward square leg for a flat biggie. 12 from the over. 5-0-32-1, so far from Oshane.

  • 12.6 OUT! Caught. Oshane Thomas has given Windies a big breakthrough here. Back of a length delivery outside off at 143 kph. Joe Root teases this one, looking to cut it over point by leaning back. But probably due to the excessive pace, he gets a thin outside edge to it and the ball goes behind to the keeper. Shai Hope takes a regulation catch. The Windies' players are up in celebration and so is the crowd here in Barbados. Joe Root, who was looking so good out in the middle, has to walk back and the 50-run partnership has been broken. 60/3
  • 12.5 Around off, Root drives it to mid off.
  • 12.4 FOUR! A length ball on middle, Root pulls it away to deep mid-wicket and bags a boundary. 50-run partnership comes up off 66 balls.
