    29.4 down the track, through the gate, stumped by a country mile! Brathwaite looking to step up his tempo with his fifty approaching, but Moeen found just enough turn from a tight line, to beat the inside edge of an attempted loft over the leg-side, and Buttler did the rest 118/4
    2.4 slightly short, Lewis looks to work across the line... but a leading edge loops to cover, well taken diving forwards! Finn looks delighted, that's his 99th ODI wicket and England have the breakthrough. Looked like the ball maybe stopped in the pitch but Lewis, who blazed his first two balls to the fence, goes without adding to his score 11/1
    6.3 banged in short, goes for the pull, big top edge - and Finn pouches it, for his 100th ODI wicket! Powell falls going for the big shot when strike rotation might have been more prudent, possibly done for pace although it only clocked around 80mph 21/2
    13.3 bit of width, Hopes throws the hands through a violent-looking cut... only to nick tamely to the keeper and give Stokes a wicket! Didn't bounce as much as he was expecting and took the under-edge, but that's a blow for WI, with Hope the nearest to a fluent-looking batsman we've seen 46/3
    36.2 full and straight, flips across the line... but it's ballooned off a leading edge and will be taken at mid-on! Mohammed has been done by the drinks break, a slight error of judgement and he has to depart, tamely chipped to the edge of the ring 159/5
    38.5 swings across the line, another skied top-edge... and safely pouched at mid-off! West Indies are threatening to subside here, Carter gave Moeen some humpty in the previous over but Plunkett is a different proposition, not quite full enough to hit down the ground and it skewed high but only as far as the edge of the 30-yard circle 173/6
    44.1 slogged into the air, Rashid backpedals... and takes a good catch! Reward for Rashid, he tossed the ball up and Holder swung lustily across the line, sent it about 24 yards back down the pitch but the ball was swirling as it came down and Rashid did well to hold on falling forward to his knees 199/7
    46.3 steps out, Brathwaite hammers this into the leg side, but it won't quite carry... Roy takes the catch and relays it in and that's good night, Kolkata! He must have been hitting into the wind, because I'm certain that would have gone all the way at Eden Gardens. Smartly done by Roy on the boundary rope at wide long-on, he nonchalantly tossed it back underarm as he stepped out of bounds and Billings completed the dismissal 219/8

    47.2 bowled him, straight through a yawning gap! Nurse was going for the straight yahoo, he held the pose nicely... but you couldn't have squeezed Rahkeem Cornwall between his bat and pad 224/9

    47.5 sensational from Buttler, a run-out finishes it! Gabriel was barely in the frame as they tried to scurry through for a leg bye, the ball had deflected away to Buttler's left but he raced across, picked up and got around to throw right-arm - direct hit, job done 225/10

    14.6 battered high and hard down the ground, but he's not got hold of it, and once again that howling gale plays to the fielder's advantage. The ball stops in its trajectory, Brathwaite on the ropes swallows the catch! 87/2
    0.2 edged and gone! Perfect line and length, full and threatening the edge, pops routinely to second slip, who parries the edge straight into first slip's grasp! 1/1

    20.1 sliding on with the arm, into the front pad - and given! Morgan consults briefly with his partner before deciding to review, though I think this is clutching at the proverbial straw. He played the wrong line and Hawk-Eye has the ball bouncing up to dislodge the off bail: umpire's call but that means it stays with Chris Gaffaney's original decision and Morgan has to go, taking England's one review with him 108/3
    21.5 pushed through, Stokes goes back to cut - well taken by Hope! Stokes looks at the floor, kicks his feet and mopes off. The Windies have another and they are doing their darnedest to make this interesting. Stokes got a thick edge as the ball spun and bounced into him, Hope following the ball well and soft hands doing the rest 113/4
    23.2 goes back to cut, this time the edge is held, a juggling catch from Hope! England are having a confirmed attack of the vapours now, Buttler back in the hutch without scoring... He hung the bat out rather limply, again Bishoo got the ball to grip and lift and kiss the top edge, nearly escaped the gloves but Hope managed to cling on! 117/5

    24.6 bowled him, neck and crop! Super delivery from Nurse, drifting in and then straightening to clatter middle and off stump, Moeen back when he perhaps should have been forward and England now running a severe temperature. Just what the doctor ordered from Nurse and Windies are threatening to steal this away 124/6
