4

Joseph to Bairstow, FOUR, full on middle, Bairstow flicks through mid-wicket. Good posture, ensures his head doesn't fall over, lovely timing

4

Joseph to Roy, FOUR, short of length ball, and it's been dispatched in front of square. Not the full flourish from Roy, just a short-arm pull, but the timing is excellent. Picked length up so quickly

4

Joseph to Roy, FOUR, fullish around off, the bat twists in Roy's hands as he drives it straight of mid-on for four. Looked like he wanted to go through mid-off, but the timing is still there regardless

4

Joseph to Roy, FOUR, short of length around the hip region, Roy swivels across and pulls it away to the long leg boundary. Looks in good touch, carrying his form from the other day

4

Cummins to Roy, FOUR, got a bit too steep for the cut, and Roy hits it uppishly, but manages to force it through the gap at cover-point. The timing wasn't great because he'd got it high on the bat, but it's still enough to run for four

4

Cummins to Roy, FOUR, cover-point gets a hand, but the ball will still run away for four. That's how hard it was slapped by Roy. Not great bowling, too much width on offer

4

Cummins to Roy, FOUR, they're giving him too much width, and he can't be expected to miss out every time. Flings his hanfs on the ball and slashes it through backward point

OT

Cummins to Roy, no run, oh this looks close. It looked very close in real time, and if there's no edge, Roy could be in trouble. Ah, seems to be leg-sidish. Yup, doing too much off the seam - it's only clipping leg. Windies lose their review, but it was worth the go. It was a fullish ball, Roy wanted to drive it down the ground, and was undone by the movement. He just about survives

4

Cummins to Bairstow, FOUR, this was everything that Roy's previous shot wasn't. Balance, timing, placement - all check. Fuller than a good length, Bairstow merely leans on the ball and caresses it straight of mid-off

4

Taylor to Roy, FOUR, again, width to Roy. He capitalizes. Flays it over backward point's reach for four

4

Cummins to Bairstow, FOUR, been a wayward start for Cummins. He's either been too wide or, as in this occasion, too straight. Bairstow glances it past short fine leg for four

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, overpitched outside off, and Bairstow beautifully places it in the gap through extra-cover. Drilled the ball with glorious timing

4

Joseph to Bairstow, FOUR, it's flown away off the bat, even though Bairstow only checked it through backward point. What timing. Again, poor lines from Windies, as they continue providing width. The target looking pretty comfortable at this stage

OT

to Roy, 1 run, works it down to long-on to bring up a second consecutive half-century. He's finishing the summer well, after a rather forgettable run

4

Joseph to Roy, FOUR, nails his pull off the front foot! Only a tad short from Joseph, and he's been belted away through mid-wicket for four. The fielder in the circle may have even got a hand diving, but nothing was stopping that

4

Joseph to Roy, FOUR, right on top of the short ball to pull it away through mid-wicket once more. It's not gentle pace this - 89mph - but Roy is getting into positions so quickly

OT

to Roy, 1 run, pushes it down to long-on, brings up the 100-run partnership. Their second 100-run stand in two games

4

to Roy, FOUR, aims a punch through cover, but the ball slides on and takes a thick outside edge. No slips, and it runs away fine. Cummins gets to it with a slide, despite a laborious chase, but he misses his first attempt at flicking it in, and by the time he does it a second time, his foot is touching the cushions

OT

to Bairstow, 1 run, a jab from Bairstow down to long-on, and he's continues to prosper at the top of the order. Another fifty

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, sweeps hard, and gets it through for four. There was a valiant dive in the deep, to no avail. Oodles of power from Bairstow on that sweep

6

to Roy, SIX, jumps down the track and wallops it into the deep mid-wicket stands. Full extension of the arms there to send it sailing for a 91-metre six

4

to Roy, FOUR, judges the length to be short, slides onto the back foot and swats it hard straight down the ground. Beats long-on

W

Cummins to Roy, out Lbw!! Given out immediately, and Roy will not review. That's pretty plumb to be honest, no escaping that. So he falls agonizingly short of a hundred. Seemed a pretty innocuous delivery, but Roy just played down the wrong line. Fraction fuller than a good length, angled in on middle, and for some reason, Roy misses it by inches on the inside edge. It hits him on the back leg, and there's only one way its headed. A brilliant knock though, gets a big applause on his way back. Roy lbw b Cummins 96(70) [4s-11 6s-1]

4

Joseph to Root, FOUR, finds the gap. And is helped by some wayward sliding skills in the deep as well. A sitter, drifting down leg as well. Root stays up, typically back footed and keeps the swat down, through a slippery backward square leg

4

Powell to Root, FOUR, slipping down. Never the right line this, certainly when there is nobody at fine leg. All Root has to do is get something on it..he gets the middle of the meat on the clip. And the pace takes it away

4

Taylor to Bairstow, FOUR, welcome. Surely this one did not deserve the treatment. The treatment he's been dishing out to everyone. Lifts the late stab through point over the man out there, and all the way

4

Taylor to Bairstow, FOUR, lofted cut now. Gives himself the room with his body going backwards, and instead of going for an upper cut over the cordon, he goes square. And then the ball does what it has been all innings

4

Taylor to Bairstow, FOUR, no this delay isn't getting them a wicket. Bairstow nails his guard on the back foot, gets under the length and hammers it past Taylor. So very a free-hit kind of a response

4

Taylor to Bairstow, FOUR, to 99..with all the elegance. Quickly on the toes, Taylor responds with a line granting width and finds it punched through the covers. High elbows, bat holding the pose et al

OT

Taylor to Bairstow, 1 run, there'e his second. Ton. Nail the opening spot ECB. When your friends go out for a pub brawl, Bairstow steals their spot. And gets there with another one of his staple run downs to third man. And off goes his helmet, and his jump and a beam

4

Cummins to Bairstow, FOUR, the short ball without fizz. And he clubs that. Waits on it and plunders it through mid-wicket. This is ending in a whimper am afraid for the Windies

4

Taylor to Bairstow, FOUR, brute. A nothing drag down, and Bairstow is quickly onto it. Swivelling to pull it behind square. And some footie skills out there from the fielder only helps us reach the inevitable

OT

Cummins to Bairstow, wide, down leg. Too straight. Brings up the 100 between these two

4

Cummins to Bairstow, FOUR, those wrists. Very Kohli here. Stoops low on the flick, all bottom handed in whipping it through mid-wicket. Ambris, chases, slips and falls on the ball. And his foot touches the rope too

4

Cummins to Bairstow, FOUR, take that for timing. Smashes the slap into the turf and the dew lets it skid on. The dew in the covers

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, he's toying around. Stays away from the line and drills it straight down. He's doing it for fun here

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, covers now. He done every possible fielding position and he's doing them again. Covers this time. Gets an overcooked toss up, Bairstow sinks to muscle the drive through extra cover

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, right forward, to the pitch of it and goes through the line. With a powering cover drill. So, England one shot away

6

to Root, SIX, done with a tonking. A juicy slot flat one and Root is down on a knee, wielding the axe, and smashing it straight into the sightscreen. 4-0, this one by nine wickets

6

Ball to Gayle, SIX, bang! There you go. Full in the slot, Gayle clears his front leg and launches it down the ground

6

Ball to Gayle, SIX, six more. He's pressed the trigger. The ball is full again, slightly wider, and so Gayle uses the angle and drills it over extra-cover. So easy

6

Ball to Gayle, SIX, hat-trick of sixes! And in a matter of half an over, he's turned the balance of pressure. So typically Gayle. Ball pulls the length back a little bit from the previous two deliveries, and Gayle doesn't get hold of this as well as he'd have liked, but he dismisses it over long-on anyway

4

Curran to Kyle Hope, FOUR, nicely punched down the ground for four. It wasn't really a half-volley, so Hope didn't go through with a flourish. He chose to check the shot to keep it in control. The timing was lovely

6

Ball to Gayle, SIX, fourth six in a row for Gayle off Ball. Incredible hitting. Back of length delivery, Gayle makes room and slashes it away over cover-point. Way into the stands

4

Ball to Gayle, FOUR, top-edged, and it flies away over short third man. Almost went for six. This was well bowled though. Ball banged it in hard, and got it to climb on Gayle as he tried to flat-bat it down the ground. Didn't have any control over it

6

Ball to Gayle, SIX, dear me. Ball is being absolutely destroyed by Gayle. A full delivery, Gayle's front leg is nowhere near the scene as he smokes it down over long-off

W

Curran to Gayle, out Caught by Plunkett!! Brilliant catch from Plunkett, absolutely magnificent. It needed something like this to get rid of Gayle today, the mood he was in. And really smart bowling from Curran too, keeping his nerve with a well disguised slower ball. Gayle hopped to the leg-side to make room, and almost took himself out of reach. He was off-balance as he miscued it off the toe-end. Still, the power in the swing took it over Plunkett at mid-off. Plunkett had to run back, and was facing the crowd when he dived forward, the ball dropped from over his shoulders and he grabbed it with both hands. Maiden ODI wicket for Curran. Gayle c Plunkett b Curran 40(29) [4s-1 6s-5]

4

Curran to Kyle Hope, FOUR, another solid front foot drive down the ground, his second of the day. Beats mid-on to the left

4

Ball to Kyle Hope, FOUR, short of length, Hope is quick to rock back, gets into position and pulls it hard through square leg

W

to Kyle Hope, out Caught&Bowled!! This catch doesn't hold a candle to his previous one, but on a normal day, you'd be thrilled to pull it off the way has done here. Really sharp return catch. The ball stopped on Kyle Hope from a fullish length, and he tried checking the shot, but couldn't help it from bunting it back in the air. It goes low to the left of , who plunges down, slides on the left knee and takes it one-handed. Kyle Hope c and b 33(38) [4s-3]

D

to Shai Hope, no run, oh just. Would've been the third screamer of the day. Hope lines up and lays into the fullish length to carve it..airy. Morgan at cover, dives, one-handed and almost plucks it out. Almost!

4

to Samuels, FOUR, finally. It's been 10 overs. Gets a sitting up length on the stumps and Samuels goes violent, clears his front leg, and swings his bat, almighty, across the line in a slam to mid-wicket

W

Ali to Samuels, out Stumped!! That's the desperation. The desperation mixed up with some extravaganza. Low percentage extravaganza. And it brings curtains down on a pretty troubled stay out in the middle. With the innings going nowhere, Samuels decides to dance down, Mo smatly spots and slows up his flighter, tossing it wide outside off as well. Past the bat swing and he doesn't even bother trying to get back in. Samuels once again disappoints..for the Windies, for all the fantasy players. Samuels st Buttler b Ali 32(60) [4s-1]

4

to Mohammed, FOUR, a rare miscalculation. And Bairstow in his attempt to put pressure on the second run, gets under pressure himself. Charges at the cover drive from the deep, doesn't quite get low enough and lets it sneak through

6

Ali to Mohammed, SIX, races down, right to the pitch, and the hands swing. Full-on in a tonk over long-off. They'd need many more of these

4

Curran to Shai Hope, FOUR, sweeps. And that's his first boundary - 78 deliveries. A freebie of a line this, down leg and without any pace. Hope throws everything as he sits and nails it fine

4

Curran to Shai Hope, FOUR, two in two. Picks it up off the hips, with a jump, a twist and a swat behind square. There's the fifty too

4

Curran to Shai Hope, FOUR, make it three. He starves himself for 77 deliveries and piles on three in the next three. Too leg-sidish this from Curran, too easy for Hope. Rubs it in with a heave putting it away into the vacant fine leg

4

Rashid to Shai Hope, FOUR, they're coming in a heap now. Gets a drag down, makes it look worse with a slide inside the crease as he crouches, gets into position and swivels to pull it behind square

W

Rashid to Mohammed, out Caught by Root!! Goes slogging, hard, too hard to lose his shape. Mohammed looks to piggy back in Hope's momentum and decides to take on Rashid's floater. Clears his front leg, throws the bat as he looks to loft the hoick over long-off. Loses his timing, with the ball finding the toe end and flies down to a running across Roooot. Mohammed c Root b Rashid 25(30) [4s-1 6s-1]

4

Rashid to Sunil Ambris, FOUR, another one down leg. This time Ambris decides to take it on off a knee. Helps it along with a flat bat, fine enough and into the ropes. First runs..internationally

D

Rashid to Shai Hope, 1 run, almost another stunner. An airy chip this from Hope, doesn't get enough to take it all the way, Root once again runs in from long-off, dives, gets both hands. But it pops out

4

Curran to Sunil Ambris, FOUR, full-blooded on the pull. Nice height on this bumper from Curran, but taken head-on with a pull, wristing it away to bisect the two men around the corner

6

Ball to Shai Hope, SIX, another sitter. Not forgiven. Ah, the crunch. The length neither full nor short and Hope rocks forward, whacks the violent blade in a dispatch over cow corner

W

Ball to Shai Hope, out Caught by Billings!! That's the end. Pretty much in the slot again for a plunder, but Hope cannot get close enough in time. Throws the hands out on the lofted slice, has the bat face rolling in his palms and the ball flying down the throat of deep extra cover, nope not his throat, his reverse-cupped palms instead. So, he ain't providing the final flourish. Shai Hope c Billings b Ball 72(95) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

Ball to Sunil Ambris, FOUR, 81.3mph, a wide yorker turned half volley. Ambris uses the pace and times the stoopy slice wide of third man, ust a help around

4

Ball to Sunil Ambris, FOUR, easy runs these. The line is a milking cow. Overcorrects his wide half volley with a down-leg half volley. Ambris meanwhile is happy to use all of it in whipping it away. Fine leg this time

6

to Rovman Powell, SIX, a smoke. looks to soften him up with the bouncer on the nose. Powell brings out a tennis forehand. Angled bat, smashing it over cow corner

W

to Rovman Powell, out Bowled!! Cleaned up. A full toss with all the steam and Powell once again was looking to smoke it up into the sky. Swings, violently, playing all around a straight one. Under the bat and off-stump is found sleeping on the floor. We're into the tail now, officially. Rovman Powell b 11(9) [6s-1]

4

to Nurse, FOUR, typically West Indian with the pull. A sitter on the hips and Nurse jumps in swivelling as he hacks it behind square. Bairstow's dive cannot cut it

6

Curran to Nurse, SIX, picks this out. And the bones off it. All the elegance, mixed with his massive biceps. Quite off the full bat face shown and tonks it straight down. Ahh, the pose

6

Curran to Nurse, SIX, Plunkett undoes his good work with the catching. Nurse in another skier, goes for the hoick this time, toe ending really but getting enough elevation. Plunkett at the fence straight down, misjudges the trajectory, and lets it pop over

4

Ball to Nurse, FOUR, he's putting on a show here. Ball misses his length by an inch, Nurse steals a mile. Backs away, gives his arms the room and goes inside-out. Flat

4

Ball to Nurse, FOUR, innov time to rub it in. A quick shuffle, sits down too and ramps it away. Too wide to be playing such shots but Nurse throws in enough wood to trickle it past the chase
