England tour of West Indies, 3rd ODI: West Indies v England at North Sound, Mar 5, 2014
  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MJ Lumb c Narine b DJ Bravo 20 28 26 2 1 76.92
6.4 82.5 mph, breakthrough! Loose from Lumb. It was short and fairly wide, he didn't not seem fully committed to the cut shot and almost guided it to the right of backward point where a sharp catch is held 37/1
View dismissal MM Ali c & b Miller 55 92 59 3 1 93.22
22.3 58.3 mph, touch more air, drives off the inside half of the bat - straight back to the bowler! Miller makes lite work of the catch, a dolly, really, and Moeen has tossed away a big score, having looked very comfortable. Maybe just did his a touch in the flight... ends a stand worth 78 115/3
View dismissal BA Stokes c Rampaul b DJ Bravo 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
6.5 81.6 mph, first ball! And it's a short ball. Stokes went for the pull, perhaps it wasn't as short as he thought, it comes off a big top edge and loops to Rampaul who takes a few steps around from short fine-leg 37/2
View dismissal JE Root c DM Bravo b DJ Bravo 107 163 122 7 0 87.70
48.3 64.7 mph, tries to get cheeky with a reverse-lob and picks out short third man - Root toots his last! It was a sparkling, busy innings, has really set England up with their second-best fifth-wicket stand in ODIs. Bravo took the pace off and the attempt to loft it over the man on the edge of the circle didn't quite come off 291/5
View dismissal EJG Morgan b Narine 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
23.1 bowled him, Morgan done by the doosra! Narine strikes, a little bit of magic to get rid of England's conjurer... This was slightly short of a length, straightening on off stump and it skipped on, beat Morgan on the inside and lopped the off bail - the same ball that nearly did for Moeen a few overs ago. Super ball to the new batsman 116/4
View dismissal JC Buttler c & b Rampaul 99 102 84 7 4 117.85
49.3 another slower ball - and Buttler has chipped it straight up into the air, he's out for 99! Holy moly, what a way to go, one short of his maiden ODI century... Rampaul followed him down the leg side, took the pace off and Buttler got a leading edge trying to hit through midwicket, the bowler made no mistake underneath it. Off slopes Jos Buttler, thorougly dejected, despite a superb knock 300/6

View dismissal KOA Powell b Root 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
0.6 53.4 mph, bowled him, misses with the slog-sweep! Root has a wicket to go with his hundred, he looks just a delighted, if not more so, running off with his arms outstretched... This skidded on with the arm, ungainly swipe from Powell and the castle was breached 10/1
View dismissal DR Smith c Ali b Broad 9 4 4 2 0 225.00
1.1 79.3 mph, dug in short, Smith hooks flamboyantly... and picks out deep backward square leg! Two in two balls, brainless from Smith, really, with his partner having just fallen. It was back of a length, sat up to be pulled but he got under it as he swivelled, one leg in the air, and picked out the fielder on the fence 10/2
View dismissal DM Bravo c Bopara b Ali 16 22 20 3 0 80.00
6.6 54.1 mph, skips out and nails a crashing shot across the line... but Bopara has plucked it nonchalantly above his head at short midwicket! Moeen also picks up a wicket in his first over, Bravo gone in a puff of smoke thanks to some magic from Bopara 42/3
View dismissal LMP Simmons b Broad 16 31 21 3 0 76.19
7.6 no doubt about this, Simmons has dragged on! The line was outside off, not giving Simmons anything, he tried to pull when it wasn't all that short, maybe ducked back a little off the surface and a clunking bottom edge ricocheted down into the woodwork 43/4
View dismissal MN Samuels c †Buttler b Parry 23 56 39 0 2 58.97
19.5 five down! Samuels has been given out caught behind cutting. Joel Wilson gives the decision on-field, but Samuels reviews. No massive edge or sound, but it was been given on-field, remember. Another interesting one for the third umpire. He now looks at the slow-mo. Quite similar to the Buttler review, earlier, which was overturned to a not out. This one is upheld! Samuels has to walk (slowly) off 80/5
View dismissal D Ramdin b Bresnan 128 167 109 12 5 117.43
47.4 83.5 mph, bowled him, Bresnan squeezes the yorker past Ramdin! Leg stump is out of the ground, Ramdin is flat on the metaphorical canvas, England have won! Bresnan is engulfed by his team-mates, he held his nerve after being taken for three consecutive boundaries... Ramdin stepped away, Bresnan went full and straight and though the bat came down, all he could do was deflect the ball on to the wicket. As heartbeats begin to return to normal, England have won by 25 runs and take the series 2-1 278/10
View dismissal DJ Bravo* c †Buttler b Bopara 27 34 32 3 0 84.37
29.2 73.7 mph, Ravi strikes! Back of a length on off stump, Bravo trying to work it down to third man and the edge is very well held by Buttler up to the timber 131/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy c Stokes b Bresnan 24 45 35 2 1 68.57
39.6 83.2 mph, Sammy explodes, England rejoice! Stokes claims an excellent running catch, above his head at deep backward square, he had to get round the rope whilst making sure to stay inside it, as Sammy took on the Bresnan bumper again - initially looked like it would go all the way but wasn't quite out of the screws, dipping in front of the stands and Stokes made it look easy 202/7
View dismissal NO Miller c sub (CJ Jordan) b Bresnan 10 21 17 1 0 58.82
45.1 80.8 mph, Miller's luck runs out, heaves across the line, top-edging to short extra cover! Bresnan landed this back of a length on the stumps, Miller tried to do too much, when he really just needed to get Ramdin back on strike 246/8
View dismissal SP Narine run out (sub [CJ Jordan]/Broad) 10 9 6 0 1 166.66
46.5 Broad to Ramdin, superb work from Broad and Narine is run out at the non-striker's end! England need just one more wicket (though remember how that turned out in Brisbane a few weeks ago?), Narine was backing up a long way only for Ramdin's pull to go straight to Chris Jordan, the substitute fielding at mid-on, his throw was good but it required Broad to grab it on the bounce and swing his arms back to flick off the bails as he passed the stumps. Dexterous stuff... West Indies now clinging on by a fingertip 263/9
