    6.2 got him! That's a superb take from Gayle. Strauss went for a hook but it was too quick and he skied it over the slips. But Gayle, running back 10 or 11 paces, took a fine catch over his head 15/1
    6.4 that is awful from Bopara. Excellent bowling, mind - nice, quick and aggressive and Bopara tried to hook it but it got big on him. The ball made its limp, feeble way straight to mid-on 17/2
    12.1 short, Pietersen climbs into the hook with two men back. Pollard is under a swirling skier, takes it with aplomb, and now England are in deep, deep doo-doo 41/3
    13.3 short, wide, slapped ... straight to backward point! A nothing sort of shot from Shah and he's paid the price, as Darren Sammy swoops low with his big hands. 42/4
    18.5 massive appeal, looked to be swinging late, and potentially down the leg-side, but very full indeed. Bucknor ponders for an age, which is always a worry for the batsman, and sure enough, up goes the finger! 54/6
    14.6 short, leg-sided, Flintoff has a swish, and whaddaya know, he's lofted it straight to Fidel Edwards at fine leg! 43/5
    24.3 oh that is truly village. Short and wide and slapped straight to point. Thoughtless stroke 68/7
    41.3 goes for a hook but top-edges it to the running square leg - another hook shot goes all wrong for England 117/10
    24.5 got him! A little off-cutter which squares up Broad, whose feet were firmly concreted, and it scooted through low to the keeper 68/8
    40.2 terrific catch by Sammy, diving at extra cover as Batty's extravagant heave is mistimed 116/9

  • Loss was humiliating and embarrassing - Strauss

    Andrew Strauss, the England captain, has said his team's defeat in the third ODI against West Indies in Barbados was "pretty humiliating and fundamentally pretty embarrassing"

  • Gayle scorches inept England

    Chris Gayle put West Indies' off-field worries to one side and instead heaped ever more crippling levels of opprobrium onto the shoulders of England's listless cricketers
