Commentary

6.15pm: We're done for the day, I'll leave you with David Hopps' report to read before bedtime. I have a flight to catch in the morning, next time you hear from me it will be from Chittagong... Gnasher will be back with you for the third T20 on Thursday. Cheers for your comments, take it easy now. Bye!

6.05pm: Here's England captain Eoin Morgan: "Think we were about 15-20 short. Starting at 30 for 3 wasn't an ideal start and we had to work on a balance between trying to score runs and not lose wickets. I thought [Buttler and Hales] kept us in the game with a great effort, they showed a lot of fight and towards the end we were always in the game but we had to continue to take wickets. A win [in the third T20] would be good, building an upwards curve for the T20 World Cup."

Krishmar Santokie is named Man of the Match: "By watching the first game on the sidelines I saw the pitch was a bit up and down. What's worked for me over the years [in T20], I'm confident to do it and it went well today."

West Indies captain Darren Sammy: "Feels good, it's a while since we won a series. This is preparation for the T20 World Cup, we have one more game and we want to give the fans something to celebrate. [Santokie] took his opportunity, so it's good that all the guys are firing. More or less we focus on the first six and then the back end, we have Dwayne and Andre Russell, myself, so we can come and finish off. We have a few niggles, we want to win cricket games, so we'll come up with the right eleven."

5.55pm: So West Indies go 2-0, a flurry of blows from Sammy leaving England flat on the canvas. The tourists were a bit more competitive this time but the result is still the same - this was their fifth T20 defeat in a row. West Indies, meanwhile, look like they may be relocating their groove at just the right time, a week or so out from beginning their World T20 defence. If Gayle and Samuels don't get you, Sammy will... Presentations coming up shortly.

Bresnan to Sammy, FOUR runs, short and wide and lashed through point, that's beating the fielder, wins it with a boundary - Sammy finishes with 30 off nine balls, a blistering knock to give his side a five-wicket win, sealing the series with one to play

Just one hit will do it...

6
Bresnan to Sammy, SIX runs, another straight six, this time an extraordinary muscle down the ground! Nothing wrong with the delivery, full and in the blockhole, Sammy just crunches it through long-on, the arms windmilling through a brutal stroke
18.4
1w
Bresnan to Sammy, 1 wide, bangs this in very short, Sammy pulls out of his shot as it flies through... and called wide, correctly, to Bresnan's annoyance

The asking rate is comfortable now... Morgan tinkers with the field

6
Bresnan to Sammy, SIX runs, nailed it, six over long-off! Sammy has some stones on him, the captain knows he has to finish this off, he sits and waits for the yorker, it's not quite full enough and he rams it back into the baying crowd
18.2
1
Bresnan to Bravo, 1 run, full and straight, Bravo had walked across his stumps, clips straight to midwicket but they get one
18.1
1
Bresnan to Sammy, 1 run, pitched up and driven down the ground for one to long-off

Back in WI favour now... unless Bresnan can pull out another blinder
