ICC World Twenty20 - 14th match, Group 1

England v West Indies

West Indies won by 15 runs

Here come Chris Gayle and Johnson Charles...Finn will open the bowling

8.05pm Just a few minutes away from the start. The anthems are being played. "Really hoping WI lift the trophy in this competition and renew the islanders love for the sport," says Owen. "A strong WI is great for the game!"

To clarify, yes, West Indies don't have an anthem as such. They played "Rally round the West Indies."

8.00pm "England could open with Swann against Gayle," suggests Cris. "Ravi Ashwin had some success by bowling to Gayle during the powerplay overs." It's a tempting tactic. Finn at one end, Swann at the other.

7.55pm Alan Curr, an old friend of ESPNcricinfo, who has just written a very good book about playing cricket on Everest, says: "Read that line as: "we'll see how England's batsmen cope with Chris Gayle" - might have been just as appropriate. You don't think he could bowl us out do you?"

7.50pm This game is due to start in 20 minutes and we'll see how England's bowlers cope with Chris Gayle. It was a cracking pitch during the first game.

"Talking on sky about how we bowled out pakistan in the warm up game," says Alex. "Big difference in the line-up for England is Briggs, really need to find a way to get him in the team. Patel isn't useful with bat our ball."

7.35pm West Indies have won the toss and will bat first. Samuel Badree plays and Dwayne Bravo is back. So they are clearly targeting England's spin weakness. Badree has played two previous Twenty20 internationals and he opens the bowling for Trinidad & Tobago.

For England, Samit Patel for Tim Bresnan is the one change. That was to be expected. No change in the batting.

7.30pm Phew, hello again everyone. A suspect most of you are still gathering your breath after that Super Over. We'll have news on when this contest will start shortly. Both teams are out there warming up again.

Meanwhile, we're giving a top-notch cricket bat away every day during the tournament - you just need to predict the winner of this match. Easy.

7.00pm OK, folks, I'm sure you are all aware of the drama happening. We have a Super Over. England and West Indies were warming up as the third umpire made his decision about the run out and were hastily moved off the pitch.

6.45pm It's a tight finish in the other game and it's over-running by quite a bit. Toss for this match due in 15 minutes. Meanwhile, you can listen to this week's Switch Hit.

"Considering how most T20s tend to go into overtime, isn't it a strange idea to have 2 matches on the same ground with only a half hour window in between?" Indeed, could yet be an issue during the Super Eights

6.30pm Hello and welcome to coverage of the second of today's games as England take on West Indies. I'm Andrew McGlashan and along with Alan Gardner will bring you all the action. The other match hasn't quite finished, but we'll bring you any news on teams for this contest as soon as we get it.

For the time being here's the match preview and also David Hopps' piece about the role spin could play in this game.

0.1

Finn to Charles, no run, full in middle, worked down to mid-on

0.2

Finn to Charles, 2 runs, tucked neatly through midwicket, just touched that with a turn of his wrists and it sped across the outfield

0.3

Finn to Charles, no run, angled into the pads, a strangled appeal from Finn and the slips but it's going well down the leg side

0.4

Finn to Charles, no run, first slog of the match as Charles steps to leg and aims to swing a good length ball through the leg side and doesn't make contact

0.5

Finn to Charles, no run, ooh, that's a good nut...short of a length and seams away from Charles as it climbs past the outside edge...Kieswetter takes at chest-height with the ball still rising

0.6

Finn to Charles, FOUR, first boundary and it comes off a top edge as Charles tries to work it through the leg side and is completely beaten by pace and bounce...flies over the slip to third man

End of over 1 (6 runs) West Indies 6/0 (RR: 6.00)
J Charles    6* (6b 1x4)      ST Finn    1-0-6-0
CH Gayle    0* (0b)     

So, it won't be spin. Jade Dernbach with the new ball.

1.1

Dernbach to Gayle, no run, starts with a bounce to Gayle, it's pitched around leg stump and Gayle opts to duck under the line...a little sighter

1.2

Dernbach to Gayle, no run, back of a length on off stump, pushed back towards the bowler

1.3

Dernbach to Gayle, FOUR, short of a length, whipped through midwicket with a powerful flick and it races past midwicket

1.4

Dernbach to Gayle, 2 leg byes, down the leg side, takes the pad which means it doesn't have much pace on it and Finn gets around the boundary

1.5

Dernbach to Gayle, FOUR, slower ball, dragged down short, sits up nicely for Gayle who waits a fraction longer and pulls it through square leg...he's off

1.6

Dernbach to Gayle, FOUR, what a shot, Dernbach responded with a very full ball on off stump, Gayle just stands there and punches it straight down the ground past mid-off

End of over 2 (14 runs) West Indies 20/0 (RR: 10.00)
CH Gayle    12* (6b 3x4)      JW Dernbach    1-0-12-0
J Charles    6* (6b 1x4)      ST Finn    1-0-6-0

2.1

Finn to Charles, no run, back of a length, nips into the right hander and Charles punches to cover

2.2

Finn to Charles, no run, beaten! Another good one from Finn which moves away a fraction from Charles who is poking at it without much footwork

2.3

Finn to Charles, 1 leg bye, goes for the pull, doesn't get bat on it and takes the top of the pad down to third man

2.4

Finn to Gayle, no run, short of a length, at the body from Finn, Gayle defends it square into the off side to backward point

2.5

Finn to Gayle, FOUR, backs away to leg against another short ball and carves it over the off side...he knew what was coming and didn't make any attempt to keep the shot down

2.6

Finn to Gayle, 1 run, a rare shot he doesn' time as he splice this pull straight back past the bowler and it lobs towards mid-off...but it means he keeps the strike

"Chris Gayle scores a boundary every 4.7 balls in T20," says RG. And he's got a few already this match.

End of over 3 (6 runs) West Indies 26/0 (RR: 8.66)
CH Gayle    17* (9b 4x4)      ST Finn    2-0-11-0
J Charles    6* (9b 1x4)      JW Dernbach    1-0-12-0

First change of bowling as Stuart Broad comes into the attack. Wearing a cut on his forehead where he was hit by Tim Bresnan's watch in the swimming pool.

3.1

Broad to Gayle, FOUR, comes at the bowler, it's short of a length and skews off a thick outside edge over short third-man

3.2

Broad to Gayle, 1 run, a stand-deliver-drive to a full delivery on the stumps, mid-off can't field it cleanly and parries it away for a single. Maybe tactical from England?

3.3

Broad to Charles, FOUR, low full toss outside off, nicely turned away through backward point and Bairstow races around the boundary then dives full length to try and flick it back which he can't quite do as he touches the rope at the same time. Top effort, though

3.4

Broad to Charles, 2 runs, short of a length again, Charles pulls in front of square

3.5

Broad to Charles, no run, shorter this time and rises over Charles' top edge as he tries to send it over midwicket

3.6

Broad to Charles, no run, beaten by a back-of-a-length ball as he attempts to guide down to third man

Solid start from West Indies, forming a good base

End of over 4 (11 runs) West Indies 37/0 (RR: 9.25)
J Charles    12* (13b 2x4)      SCJ Broad    1-0-11-0
CH Gayle    22* (11b 5x4)      ST Finn    2-0-11-0

4.1

Finn to Gayle, no run, persisting back of a length and this beats Gayle's attempt at an upper-cut...Kieswetter has to leap to make the take

4.2

Finn to Gayle, 1 run, starts to give himself room to the leg side, Finn followed him and speared the ball in fall at the feet which is worked to midwicket...Finn kicked the stumps, but no dead-ball yet

4.3

Finn to Charles, no run, now Charles move to leg, less convincingly, and clubs towards mid-on without much timing

4.4

Finn to Charles, 2 runs, nice timing and placement as he opens the face and sends it square between point and cover

4.5

Finn to Charles, no run, misses another off-side shot, losing his shape as he tries to hit too hard and doesn't connect

"And now we know why Bresnan is not playing today. Something to do with his watch," says Shankar.

4.6

Finn to Charles, no run, good finish to the cover from Finn, cramping Charles for room and he can only push it into the off side...two different games going on at the moment

End of over 5 (3 runs) West Indies 40/0 (RR: 8.00)
J Charles    14* (17b 2x4)      ST Finn    3-0-14-0
CH Gayle    23* (13b 5x4)      SCJ Broad    1-0-11-0

5.1

Broad to Gayle, no run, good yorker, even Gayle can't get that away as he digs it out back to Broad

5.2

Broad to Gayle, FOUR, effortless...Broad just misses the yorker this time and gives Gayle the chance to get under the ball which he flicks over midwicket

5.3

Broad to Gayle, no run, threatens to come down the pitch, Broad bowls it shorter, Gayle cuts and gets a bottom edge into the ground towards the keeper

5.4

Broad to Gayle, 1 leg bye, shorter ball on leg stump, Gayle is a touch early on the pull and gets taken on the arm as he swings through...gets a leg-bye into the off side

5.5

Broad to Charles, 1 leg bye, huge appeal for lbw, Charles was a long way across his stumps but Steve Davis says not out...blimey, that looked closed. Might have got away with that.

5.6

Broad to Gayle, 1 run, short of a length, heaved through midwicket to man on the boundary

That completes the Powerplay. West Indies will be fairly pleased, but Charles isn't helping their cause.

End of over 6 (7 runs) West Indies 47/0 (RR: 7.83)
CH Gayle    28* (18b 6x4)      SCJ Broad    2-0-16-0
J Charles    14* (18b 2x4)      ST Finn    3-0-14-0

Meanwhile, Graeme Swann into the attack

"Would have loved to D Smith in the side," says Amol. "it would be a very dangerous opening pair... Charles does not fit.. will ruin good work by Gayle... atleast score run-a-ball Charles!"

6.1

Swann to Gayle, no run, round the wicket and big spin outside off stump, Gayle pulls his bat out of the line at the last moment...interesting

6.2

Swann to Gayle, no run, this one holds its line, Gayle pushes into the off side

6.3

Swann to Gayle, 1 run, comes forward, takes an inside edge to one that doesn't turn and it runs out to deep square-leg

6.4

Swann to Charles, no run, beaten outside off trying to open the face

6.5

Swann to Charles, FOUR, down the pitch, clubs it through the leg side and although it doesn't come out of the middle he splits the gap between long-on and deep midwicket

6.6

Swann to Charles, 1 run, swinging to leg again, this time it goes squarer to the man at deep square

End of over 7 (6 runs) West Indies 53/0 (RR: 7.57)
J Charles    19* (21b 3x4)      GP Swann    1-0-6-0
CH Gayle    29* (21b 6x4)      SCJ Broad    2-0-16-0

Samit Patel into the attack

7.1

Patel to Charles, no run, round the wicket, pushed to the off side

7.2

Patel to Charles, 1 run, dragged down short, turns and it means Charles drags his pull through mid-on

7.3

Patel to Gayle, SIX, dropped in short, Gayle pulls high but not quite with his usual distance but it has enough to creep over the boundary at deep midwicket

7.4

Patel to Gayle, no run, short outside off, cracked to the man at cover

7.5

Patel to Gayle, SIX, that's bigger...picked up from leg stump and a powerful slog-sweep which goes way back into the stands at deep square

7.6

Patel to Gayle, SIX, quicker and flatter but it makes no difference, Gayle has launched this almost over the grass banks as he just stands in his crease and swings through the line

West Indies are flying now

End of over 8 (19 runs) West Indies 72/0 (RR: 9.00)
CH Gayle    47* (25b 6x4 3x6)      SR Patel    1-0-19-0
J Charles    20* (23b 3x4)      GP Swann    1-0-6-0

Think a replacement ball is needed. Will still go miles if Gayle connects

8.1

Swann to Charles, 1 run, turns into Charles who drives off the back foot to deep cover

8.2

Swann to Gayle, 1 run, opens the face and guides it to short third-man but they still scamper a single

8.3

Swann to Charles, FOUR, poor delivery, pushed outside leg stump and that's almost a free hit as Charles sweeps it backward of square

8.4

Swann to Charles, SIX, now Charles gets into the six-hitting fun as he crunches this over long-on

8.5

Swann to Charles, no run, tries to work this to leg, gets an inside edge into his pad

8.6

Swann to Charles, SIX, another one clears the boundary...he uses his feet then flicks it high over midwicket with plenty of legs to carry the rope

All of a sudden Charles' strike-rate is no problem at all...West Indies could be on for 200 here

End of over 9 (18 runs) West Indies 90/0 (RR: 10.00)
J Charles    37* (28b 4x4 2x6)      GP Swann    2-0-24-0

Jade Dernbach is back

9.1

9.2

Dernbach to Gayle, 1 run, on off stump, worked along the ground through midwicket

9.3

Dernbach to Charles, 1 run, steps to leg, opens the face and guides a ball outside off to third man

9.4

Dernbach to Gayle, 1 run, full on leg stump, aims to turn to the leg side and gets a leading edge but along the ground through mid-off...that's fifty for Gayle from 29 balls. Fantastic innings.

9.5

Dernbach to Charles, 1 run, low full toss outside off, driven square through the off side

"I would give cricinfo 10000 dollars if they publish my comment," says Akshay...I'm waiting

9.6

Dernbach to Gayle, 1 run, flicked through the leg side to deep midwicket

This is going wonderfully for West Indies. I'll now hand over to Alan

End of over 10 (5 runs) West Indies 95/0 (RR: 9.50)
CH Gayle    51* (30b 6x4 3x6)      JW Dernbach    2-0-17-0
J Charles    39* (30b 4x4 2x6)      GP Swann    2-0-24-0

10.1

Swann to Gayle, no run, round the wicket, tossed up outside off, pushed away on the front foot

10.2

Swann to Gayle, no run, slide through on a length and tapped towards point - another dot

Swann to Gayle, 1 run, length ball, spinning away, Gayle swipes and toe-ends a single down the ground

10.5

Swann to Charles, 1 run, dropped, Swann fumes as Finn lets a skier through his hands at long-off! England's shocker gets shocking-er

10.6

Swann to Gayle, OUT, BUT HE CATCHES THIS ONE! Gayle goes, slogging Swann high to the same part of the ground, Finn was the man under it again and he made amends for his drop one delivery earlier by clutching the ball to his chest at long-on and sending the Windies marauder on his way

CH Gayle c Finn b Swann 58 (46m 35b 6x4 4x6) SR: 165.71

End of over 11 (8 runs) West Indies 103/1 (RR: 9.36)

J Charles    40* (31b 4x4 2x6)      JW Dernbach    2-0-17-0

Wright to Samuels, 1 run, bit of width outside off, opens the face and steers a single to third man

11.3

11.6

Wright to Charles, 1 wide, slings this wide of the guidelines outside off

11.6

Wright to Charles, 1 run, full and wide, swipes the ball along the ground out towards long-on

"I reckon Finn did a good job dropping Charle's catch otherwise Gayle would still be here." Shoaib thinks England's ineptitude might be tactical

End of over 12 (11 runs) West Indies 114/1 (RR: 9.50)
J Charles    49* (35b 6x4 2x6)      LJ Wright    1-0-11-0

J Charles    52* (39b 6x4 2x6)      SR Patel    2-0-23-0

Broad to Samuels, no run, short ball again, at the man, hooks but doesn't get a clean connection and midwicket fields

13.3

Broad to Samuels, no run, banged in, short and quick, fizzes through at shoulder height as Samuels against fails to connect

13.4

Broad to Samuels, OUT, and gone! Samuels made room, the ball was short of a length but not a bouncer, and he slapped it uppishly straight to the fielder at backward point. A brief, ugly innings from Samuels ends tamely

MN Samuels c Morgan b Broad 2 (13m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Keiron Pollard lopes out at No. 4

13.5

J Charles    52* (39b 6x4 2x6)      SR Patel    2-0-23-0

Sanj wasn't impressed by Nasser Hussain's favourite batsman: "Surely Samuels just played one of, if not the worst innings of the tournament, wasting nearly one and a half overs!"

Patel to Charles, 1 run, pushed through on the stumps, gets a bottom edge playing with a horizontal bat for one to short fine leg

14.2

Patel to Pollard, no run, tossed up and pushed into the off side on the front foot

14.5

Patel to Charles, no run, pushed through a bit quicker, Charles swings across the line but fails to connect

J Charles    61* (43b 6x4 3x6)      SR Patel    3-0-33-0
KA Pollard    1* (4b)      SCJ Broad    3-1-16-1

Another change, Broad with one over and replaced by Finn

15.1

Finn to Pollard, OUT, and it works, Pollard unable to control a wild slash at Finn, the ball coming back down with snow on it as Wright takes the catch at deep point! Little foot movement from Pollard, he just stood in the crease and tried to smash a length ball, got a huge top edge and not enough distance to save him

KA Pollard c Wright b Finn 1 (9m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

15.2

Finn to Charles, FOUR, length ball, on the stumps, steps back and skewers and low drive through backward point

15.6

Finn to Charles, 2 runs, pitched up outside off, frees the arms and drives low through the covers to the man on the rope

Dernbach comes back on

17.1

Dernbach to Charles, FOUR, length ball, on the stumps, flipped over square leg and that's actually a terrific shot, as it spins away and races to the rope

17.2

Dernbach to Charles, no run, full and wide, gets across and tries to flick to leg but fails to connect

17.3

Dernbach to Charles, FOUR, pitched and and right in the slot, Charles launches this high towards wide long-on and it's a one-bounce four

17.4

Dernbach to Charles, no run, good reply from Dernbach, yorker length and Charles can't get it off the cut strip

17.5

Dernbach to Charles, OUT, low full toss, lofted to mid-on and gone! It seemed like Charles just didn't have the energy for that shot, the arms didn't flow through and it looped gently to Bairstow running in - chance of a rare T20I ton disappears but that's a cracking knock after a slow start

J Charles c Bairstow b Dernbach 84 (77m 56b 10x4 3x6) SR: 150.00

17.6

Dernbach to Bravo, no run, length outside off, Bravo stands and delivers a swing and a miss

DJG Sammy    0* (0b)      SR Patel    4-0-38-0

Broad, who's bowled very well today, back on to complete his allocation

Here's a thought, from Nate: "So what are the odds of both games being tied at 174? Seems to be about the right score on this pitch."

18.1

Broad to Sammy, 2 runs, back of a length, miscued pull shot goes down the ground between long-on and long-off for a couple

18.2

Broad to Sammy, 2 runs, dug in, Sammy swings across to line and gets a leading edge just over the outstretched arm of mid-off, long-on comes round but they get back for a second

18.3

Broad to Sammy, OUT, bowled him, out the back of the hand and Sammy is gone! He was aiming to milk Broad for a maximum over cow corner but was well through the shot by the time the slower ball pitched and skidded on to the stumps

DJG Sammy b Broad 4 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Andre Russell strides out for the last nine balls

18.4

Broad to Russell, no run, banged in very short, steepling and flying through as Russell flails at it unsuccessfully

18.5

Broad to Russell, FOUR, well, not sure how he's got the ball there, it was short again, Russell threw the bat at it and top-edged a high, looping four to long leg

18.6

Broad to Russell, 2 runs, length ball outside off, steps away and slices over point, lands short of the rope and Finn gets round to field on his knees and prevent four

End of over 19 (10 runs) West Indies 164/5 (RR: 8.63)
AD Russell    6* (3b 1x4)      SCJ Broad    4-1-26-2
DJ Bravo    2* (4b)      JW Dernbach    3-0-25-1

Last over. Like Sri Lanka against New Zealand, England have fought back well. This could tip it one way or another

19.1

Dernbach to Bravo, 1 run, full length, steps away and slugs one down the ground to long-off

19.2

Dernbach to Russell, FOUR, full and straight, not quite yorker length and Russell mows across the line like a murderous gardener, thick edging four in completely the opposite direction to third man

19.3

Dernbach to Russell, 1 leg bye, dug in short this time, swings and misses and is hit on the shoulder, the ball rebounding just past the stumps

19.4

Dernbach to Bravo, FOUR, slower ball, on leg stump and Bravo spots it, clears the front foot and creams it down the ground for four to long-on

19.5

Dernbach to Bravo, FOUR, full and outside the line of off and smeared over extra-cover, meaty connection and that gallops away into the gap

19.6

Dernbach to Bravo, 1 bye, full and wide, too wide for Bravo to connect with and it goes through to Kieswetter, they scamper a bye anyway

Well, that was/wasn't the final over West Indies/England wanted (delete according to affiliation). Gayle and Charles built a formidable platform and it means England will have to complete a record run chase if they're to start the Super Eights with a win. There were signs of turn - and signs are often all you need to befuddle England - though Swann and Patel were among the most expensive bowlers. If the same goes for Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree come the end of this, we really will have something to talk about. Join Gnasher in 15 minutes for the chase.

End of over 20 (15 runs) West Indies 179/5

AD Russell    10* (5b 2x4)      SCJ Broad    4-1-26-2
