And West Indies roar their delight. They've done brilliantly tonight, outplaying England from the first over. England just never left the traps, in spite of Collingwood's breezy knock. They lacked the fire and inventiveness of West Indies' batsman - Smith and Samuels both played magnificently well. So, a tough introduction for England's new captain, Collingwood, but they have a chance to level the series tomorrow, here at The Oval, for the second and final Twenty20. Do join us tomorrow for another 40 overs of entertaining mayhem but, from me Will Luke, and Andrew Miller, it's good night.

1
Bravo to Broad, 1 run, down the leg side Broad clips it to fine leg

Yardy and Broad have a chat. England need 17 from one ball. What on earth can they be talking about? Broad nods his head furiously, listening to Yardy

Good knock from England's new captain, but he looks mighty angry

19.5
W
Bravo to Collingwood, 1 run, OUT, bashed down the ground for a couple. Collingwood races back, but the throw from Dwayne Smith is quick and accurate, replays confirming Collingwood's fate

PD Collingwood run out (Smith/†Ramdin) 79 (47m 41b 5x4 4x6) SR: 192.68

It's all over

19.4
1b
Bravo to Yardy, 1 bye, a slower ball which completely foxes Yardy, trying to slash this outside off but missing it

And he's absolutely fuming, furious with himself and he practises the stroke, lambasting himself for not going over the top

19.3
1
Bravo to Collingwood, 1 run, another non-boundary, Collingwood flinging it over midwicket without timing

"Come on, Bravo," sings an English voice in the crowd somewhat confusingly.

19.2
2
Bravo to Collingwood, 2 runs, mistimed to mid-off; Collingwood's quick between the wickets but he's going to be short of his ground here. In comes the throw, and the stumps are broken...but replays show he's safe

The physio had told Bravo not to bowl. He might be in for a rollicking later.

19.1
1
Bravo to Yardy, 1 run, full, well bowled, Yardy drives it down to long-off

Collingwood has a wry, resigned look on his face. Interesting...Bravo's coming on to bowl, when we were told he isn't fit enough (selected as a batsman only).

2
Rampaul to Collingwood, 2 runs, again, fabulous ball which is too full for Collingwood to do anything with, clumping it through midwicket

Six or nothing for England

18.5
0
Rampaul to Collingwood, no run, Collingwood steps down the pitch, Rampaul simply drops it a touch shorter and it swings past Collingwood's flashing blade. Brilliant bowling

25 from 8. They really do need a rather large six

18.4
1
Rampaul to Yardy, 1 run, Yardy does a little jig to try and put Rampaul off, but he can only slash it off an inside edge to midwicket
18.3
0
Rampaul to Yardy, no run, oh well bowled, Yardy steps outside leg but Rampaul sends it wide of the off stump. Very clever, very alert

54 from the last 20 balls

18.2
2
Rampaul to Yardy, 2 runs, sponged down to third man for two

Carnage out there. What a mess

18.1
2
Rampaul to Yardy, 2 runs, full, straight, Yardy doesn't know what's going on, hammering it into his pads and they scamper for a single. Rampaul tries to throw down the stumps but misses by a country mile

Okay. 30 needed from 12. Yardy on strike and his eyes are on stalks

This is getting interesting..."Sidebottom's in the dugout with his pads on. He's not quite looking nervous... yet," Jen notes. Chris Gayle is laconic as ever, putting his arm around Rampaul's shoulder as though about to break into song, or see if he fancies a beer this evening. No beer for Rampaul just yet, though, as Gayle hands him the ball

Powell to Collingwood, FOUR runs, in the blockhole, Collingwood just stands tall and hammers it down the ground for four
17.5
1
Powell to Yardy, 1 run, uppercut down to third man who does really well to save four
17.4
1
Powell to Collingwood, 1 run, a full toss which takes Collingwood by surprise, pushed to midwicket
17.3
1
Powell to Yardy, 1 run, excellent ball, straight and full; Yardy can't do anything with it, pushing it out to cover

"The stands erupt. Well, not literally," clarifies Jenno.

Never doubted him, of course

17.2
4
Powell to Yardy, FOUR runs, Yardy's awake now! He pulls this through midwicket for four more
17.1
4
Powell to Yardy, FOUR runs, Yardy's hit a four! Again he put every ounce of energy into the stroke, the ball wallowing its way down the ground and it's just got enough on it to go for four

45 from 18 balls. Daren Powell's into the attack. This is massive.

END OF OVER:
17 | 15 Runs | ENG: 164/6 (45 runs required, RR: 9.64, RRR: 15.00)

Sammy to Collingwood, SIX runs, a full toss, and he helps it over fine-leg for...six! Brilliant stroke. Collingwood's up for it
16.5
4
Sammy to Collingwood, FOUR runs, bang, a flat four to long-on's left. Powerfully struck
16.4
1
Sammy to Yardy, 1 run, turned around the corner

That was dead. Absolutely plumb

16.3
1lb
Sammy to Collingwood, 1 leg bye, ooh that's out. Ooh, no it's not - very close indeed, swinging into the batsman who's rapped on the pads
16.2
2
Sammy to Collingwood, 2 runs, swinging into Collingwood who does a Steve Waugh and cracks it over midwicket, but he hasn't middled it - Powell is the man out at deep midwicket but he can't get there in time, his hands crossing over eachother as though impersonating my Mum trying to party
