    0.6 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
    1.1 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
    6.6 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
    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
    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
    47.4 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
    29.2 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
    39.6 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
    45.1 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
    46.5 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
