commentary

That is it from this game. The Windies have levelled the series and we now go to Grenada for the third ODI. That match will be played on 25th February at 0930 local (1330 GMT). Join us for that one. Till then, cheers!

Windies' skipper, Jason Holder says he is really pleased and credits his boys for putting up a great performance. States that Hetmyer played really well and took them to a competitive total. Singles out Cottrell's spell to be the game-changer. Mentions those early wickets gave them momentum and then his twin wicket over once again got them back into the game. On being asked about Shimron Hetmyer's performance, Holder replies that it is really good to see young players step up to the occasion and feels 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 to keep going and rotate the strike. States that he and Bravo planned to see how deep they can go and were trying to rotate the strike as much as possible. On his improvement on playing both sides of the pitch, the young batter said he was just trying to work it on both sides of the ground. Adds that it's 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 in the team before they came out on the field, he replies that the mood was good as usual and they just wanted to do things according to the plan. On his celebration after the century, Hetmyer said it was nothing big but just something for his girlfriend.

England's 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 capitalize on it. On facing Sheldon Cottrell, the English skipper replies that it was his first time facing him and it was a very different challenge. Mentions he swings the ball in and he is a left-hander so it is difficult. Admits they failed to nail down the partnerships 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 home team just capitalized from thereon. The bearded boys, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid, 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. Earlier in the day, Shimron Hetmyer stroked a fluent century and was instrumental in powering the home team's total to 289/6.

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 unfolded 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!

J Holder to A Rashid, 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.

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.

Adil Rashid walks in next.

J Holder to Tom Curran, 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
0
J Holder to Jos Buttler, 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

J Holder to M Ali, 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.

J Holder to Ben Stokes, 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.

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?

J Holder to Jos Buttler, 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...

J Holder to Ben Stokes, 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...

Devendra Bishoo to bowl again.

S Cottrell to Ben Stokes, 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.

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.

O Thomas to E Morgan, 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.

O Thomas to Joe Root, 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.
