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.

19.6
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

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).
