All|Overs 1-50
4

Taylor to Hales, FOUR, short of length just outside off, Hales picks length early and dispatches the pull over square leg. Wasn't as quick - 82mph - so Hales had little trouble

4

Taylor to Hales, FOUR, back of a length on middle and leg, too straight, and it's been clipped away wide of mid-on. Mohammed gives chase, and tries flicking it back inside the boundary, but instead, he holds on too long and tosses it over the ropes

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, cover is vacant, and this isn't a bad ball from whatsoever. On a good length, swinging away outside off, the gap in the field lures Bairstow to drive on the up. Just that he's too good on this occasion and middles it for four

4

Taylor to Hales, FOUR, he pulled Taylor for four in his previous over too, but this one's an even better shot because the delivery is quicker. 85mph, around shoulder height, yet Hales is able to pull it off the front foot. He hits it well in front of square, and it nearly carries all the way

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, deceives Bairstow with the slower ball, causing his bottom hand to fall off the handle. However, Bairstow has gone through with the loft, and has cleared mid-on comfortably

4

Taylor to Hales, FOUR, proper half-volley from Taylor, and it's been driven beautifully down the ground for four. Full face of the bat from Hales

W

Taylor to Hales, out Caught by Lewis!! A slight juggle from Lewis, but importantly, he holds on. So after a few eye-catching shots, Hales departs. Had he stayed any longer, he'd have taken the game away quickly from the Windies, so a much needed breakthrough for the visitors. This ball is probably not as wide as Hales thinks, and he can't find much power on the cut shot. Gets it high on the bat and hits it straight to backward point. Hales c Lewis b Taylor 19(14) [4s-4]

4

Taylor to Root, FOUR, short ball, closer to the body, Root swivels across and pulls over short fine leg. Just cleared the fielder. Don't think he was in control of that, having got it high on the bat

4

Williams to Bairstow, FOUR, leg-stump ball, a comfortable put-away for Bairstow. He glances it fine to the fine leg boundary

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, good drift for , with the ball curving towards the man at slip, but it's a little too full and Bairstow has driven it gorgeously through cover for four

4

to Root, FOUR, what an ideal ball to get after premeditating the reverse paddle. lobs a low full toss, allowing Root to use its pace and get it fine of backward point

4

Bishoo to Root, FOUR, against the turn and from well outside off. That is anti-Root, this shot. Drags the sweep and sends it wide of long-on

4

Bishoo to Bairstow, FOUR, waits late on the ball and cuts with the turn past backward point. Races to the third man fence. Bairstow raises his fifty as well

4

Bishoo to Bairstow, FOUR, short ball. Bairstow pulls agains the turn and manages to beat mid-on. Sends down the long-on fence

4

Bishoo to Bairstow, FOUR, goes back in the crease, was a bit short as well. Late-cuts it past the slip fielder, scurries to the third man fence

4

Taylor to Bairstow, FOUR, short and wide outside off. Bairstow is not going to miss out, cuts wide of sweeper cover. 100-partnership

4

Bishoo to Root, FOUR, short and now Root goes back to pull through mid-wicket. The fielder in the ring dives to his right but fails to stop that

4

Bishoo to Bairstow, FOUR, Bishoo has been too short today. Drops it halfway once again. Bairstow waits and slaps past extra cover

4

Bishoo to Bairstow, FOUR, mid-on is in the ring and Bairstow manages to pull this short ball past him. Horrible over from Bishoo

OT

Taylor to Root, 2 runs, fifty for Root. 23rd in ODIs. Another short ball which he spotted early and went back to pull to deep backward square leg

W

Williams to Root, out Bowled!! Short ball. Root goes back to defend and chops on back to his stumps. A wicket against the run of play. But don't think it is going to bring about much change in the context of the game. Root b Williams 54(53) [4s-4]

4

Taylor to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, full ball and this time Eoin Morgan gets the placement right. Drives wide of extra cover and it races away

W

Williams to Eoin Morgan, out Caught by Shai Hope!! Just a Poke. Thin edge and gone! Pounds it hard does Williams and gets some extra nip off the seam, it takes the finest of edges with the angle slanted across Morgan. Easy take for Shai Hope behind the stumps. Eoin Morgan c Shai Hope b Williams 10(11) [4s-1]

4

Williams to Stokes, FOUR, slower ball full toss, Stokes' bottom hand power takes over...slammed back past the bowler

4

Williams to Bairstow, FOUR, another slower ball, Bairstow square-drives where there's no fielder. Sweeper cover runs a long way to his right and dives, but the ball wins the race

6

Williams to Stokes, SIX, advances and smokes it over long-off with a bat swing as clean as a whistle

OT

to Bairstow, 3 runs, maiden ODI hundred for Jonny Bairstow. What a delight. He's pumped and gets a warm round of applause from the OT crowd. A special hundred and a hundred that he'll remember for a long, long time. Got there with a dance-down-the-pitch-thrash-drive through covers. Slipped briefly while coming back for the third, but didn't lose focus...ran like a marathon runner in the end

6

to Stokes, SIX, what a way to finish it off. Down the pitch and boom over long-on. England win by 7 wickets and go 1-0 up in the 5-match series which means Windies have to play the WC qualifiers next year. Sri Lanka will feel relieved. They are through...

D

to Gayle, no run, edged and dropped! bowls the fuller length and has Gayle swinging at it. Because he went so hard, the ball flew towards Root at second slip and probably surprised him. The height might have been a bit awkward as well - around the shoulders, and he tentatively put his hands over to the right before it stung out of the palms. It's a dangerous man to drop

4

to Gayle, FOUR, clears the front leg and flat-bats it over mid-on. Back of length delivery, Gayle didn't get all of it, but such is the meat on that willow that if he gets it anywhere close to the middle, he'll most certainly clear the infield

6

to Gayle, SIX, and he goes again .. and goes all the way! Gayle's not worrying too much about caution right now. He opens himself up and whacks the length ball into the wide long-on stands

4

to Gayle, FOUR, there's another! doesn't deviate from a good length, and Gayle doesn't deviate from slogging. He's skewed this off the inside half, but again, it rolls away through the gap at mid-wicket. Big over

6

to Gayle, SIX, he's chipped that over long-on for six. Effortless! Good length ball, Gayle hardly puts any effort into the shot, but the timing is magnificent

6

to Gayle, SIX, this is just punishing for the bowlers! Absolutely no leeway. You put it in the slot which Gayle likes, and you're going to disappear. Full ball around off, and it's been launched straight back down the ground. Massive six. 93 metres

4

to Lewis, FOUR, back of a length delivery just outside off, Lewis hops onto the back foot and punches with panache through point

W

Ali to Lewis, out Caught by Hales!! The move to get Ali in early has paid off, albeit through a filthy half-tracker. It's not the man England wanted, but they'll take it for now. The ball is short and sliding in on leg from round the wicket, Lewis smashes the pull shot but hits it straight to square leg where Hales shows good reflexes. Lewis c Hales b Ali 11(14) [4s-1]

W

to Gayle, out Caught by Root!! This is an absolute ripper from Joe Root! Off-cutter from , Gayle miscues it again and slices it over extra-cover. The ball keeps flying away from Root, who runs back from the circle, covers a lot of ground and then dives forward while facing the crowd. What a catch this is. Some way to redeem himself after the drop early on. The crowd goes Rooooooooooot. Gayle c Root b 37(27) [4s-2 6s-3]

4

to Shai Hope, FOUR, sees some width and has a dash, only to squirt it right off the toe-edge between keeper and wide slip

4

Rashid to Shai Hope, FOUR, pretty full from Rashid and Hope has cleared his front leg to hammer the ball over mid-on. Breaks the shackles a bit for himself

4

to Shai Hope, FOUR, short ball and Shai Hope plays it well. Rises and pulls through mid-wicket. Right off the meat of the bat

4

to Shai Hope, FOUR, lovely shot. Twice in a couple of overs he has played a pull to perfection. Short again and shuffles a bit before putting through mid-wickiet

W

to Shai Hope, out Caught by Bairstow!! What a catch at deep square leg from Jonny. Short ball and Shai Hope picks it up well, right off the middle of the bat as he pulls it away. But Bairstow times his jump a few yards inside the fence and grabs it. Shai Hope c Bairstow b 35(57) [4s-4]

W

to Samuels, out Caught by Buttler!! Was angled down leg from wide of the crease. Samuels gets across to glance but does not cover the line, misses. There is an immediate appeal from Buttler and the bowler. Morgan consults his troops and reviews. What happened next is written below. Samuels c Buttler b 17(46)

D

to Rovman Powell, 1 run, Woakes was a bit lazy to get across at fine leg and shells a top edge. Rovman Powell was never in the control off the pull and miscues to the left of fine leg. Woakes could not quite read it well and then by the time he decided to dive, the ball had kissed the ground

4

to Rovman Powell, FOUR, lofts this length ball. Not completely off the middle but over mid-on; trickles down the fence

6

to Rovman Powell, SIX, as straight as it could be. Full ball on the stumps and Rovman Powell jabs it over the bowler and with zero followthrough. Clears the fence

4

to Rovman Powell, FOUR, was that deliberate? No. A genuine edge. Powell groped at a wide one and ' pace took care of the rest in racing it down to the third man fence

6

Rashid to J Mohammed, SIX, touch short and that's smashed! Mohammed's quick to jump back and belt it flat over mid-wicket. Hales signals six instantly

W

Rashid to J Mohammed, out Caught by Hales!! Straight down the throat of Alex Hales at deep mid-wicket. That's a mere apple plucking business for the fielder. Mohammed loads up for a slogsweep, but Rashid's away turn takes the toe-end and picks the fielder to perfection. J Mohammed c Hales b Rashid 18(27) [6s-1]

W

to Rovman Powell, out Caught by Willey!! A tad too early on the stroke? Might be. Powell was lining up for a biggie over mid-wicket, but on seeing the line - around off - he adjusts the bat swing and ends up chipping in the air. Mid-on backtracks and takes a simple catch. Windies falling apart. Rovman Powell c Willey b 23(28) [4s-2 6s-1]

4

to Holder, FOUR, opens the bat face looking to run it down to third man, but the ball came back in more than he anticipated, skewing a thick edge past the lone slip

W

Rashid to Nurse, out Caught by Root!! "If a over summed up how Windies have been, this is it" Nasser comments on air. Can't add more. Perfectly put. Nurse gets itchy and lofts one inside out without much conviction, Root, at long-off, runs to his left and completes a simple catch. Nurse c Root b Rashid 1(8)

4

to Holder, FOUR, makes room outside leg and slashes hard, a big edge bounces down to the third man fence

4

to Holder, FOUR, clears his front leg and uses the long-levers to smash one straight of long-on

W

to Devendra Bishoo, out Bowled!! Gets across and tries a scoop, only to see the bails fly. A comfortable angle for - bowling from over the wicket - keeping it simple and straight. You miss, I hit. Devendra Bishoo b 5(10)

4

to Holder, FOUR, slower short ball, Holder slogs and gets a thick top-edge that goes flying to the third man fence

4

to Holder, no ball, FOUR, another no ball and another one for height. There's too much width this time for Holder to murder it over point

W

to Jerome Taylor, out Caught by Buttler!! Slower ball, Taylor uses all his bottom hand power on the swipe, a thick top-edge loops up and Buttler does the rest. Jerome Taylor c Buttler b 2(4)
