    1.3 gottim - big leading edge and Root holds this one! Maybe a slower delivery from Curran, it stood up off the deck as Hope went across the line and sent a steepler towards midwicket for a pretty simple catch (though the same could be said for the one Rashid dropped) 7/1
    3.6 pitched up, wide of off stump at 140kph - and Gayle squirts it straight to short third man! Jordan shrugs sheepishly in celebration, not sure that was intended as a wicket-taking delivery, just one that's hard to hit... only for Gayle to steer it tamely to the edge of the ring 31/2
    4.6 full toss, spooned to mid-on! Maybe another slower ball and he's miscued to the edge of the circle... He won't be improving that T20I average today! Bit of a club cricket dismissal, but no dramas with the catch by Plunkett 37/3
    13.3 wow, that's incredible from Jordan! Not sure what's better, the utter sucker punch of a slower ball, or the spread-eagled dive across the pitch to his right to intercept a looping leading edge! Bravo was utterly deceived, all the pace off the ball, but back of a length and skidding onto the bat. He had to change direction so athletically in his followthrough, but leapt like a jaguar to scoop the offering in his right hand, inches from the turf! 101/4

    17.5 beautiful finish! That was an exceptional duel between two quality players, and Curran gets the final say this time, pinging the top of middle with a well-directed length ball, hint of shape away to beat the urgent swing, and West Indies have lost their main source of impetus with 13 balls to go... 137/7
    14.4 quicker through the air, impeccable line outside off, out of the front of the hand and off the edge of a flummoxed bat. That's a very ducky duck, and England are in total command now 102/5
    16.5 right at the bottom of the bat for a floppy flog to mid-off. Allen's cameo is brief and to the point 127/6
    19.6 low full toss, slapped hard down the ground and Curran finishes with four! Right at the bottom of the bat, Billings steadies himself at long-off, and that's a very competitive total on a tricky pitch for free-flowing strokeplay 160/8

    0.6 here comes the salute! Full and through a barn-door swing across the line, smashing into middle and off stumps to give Cottrell some reward at the end of a difficult opening over! You miss, he'll hit 17/1
    11.3 a big heave through the line from Bairstow, and Brathwaite is waiting! Plops into his hands on the edge of the rope, and a fine innings is chopped off at the knees. Now then ... 103/4
    2.3 straightening a touch as Root walks across his stumps, deflects off the pad and Cottrell goes up for lbw - given! But Root reviews, perhaps hoping it has pitched outside leg. If it hasn't it's going to be a short return to the T20 side for him... Yep, just in line and going on to clip the leg bail, according to Hawk-Eye! So Cottrell doesn't have to retract his salute 32/2
    8.3 short ball, pulled in the air - straight to midwicket! Brathwaite strikes, ending a laboured stay from Morgan. Maybe a slower ball and he couldn't manufacture any power on the shot, which just lobbed to Gayle for a head-height catch 83/3
    17.4 short, and hoisted up, up and away, but into the breeze and into deep square leg's hands! 153/5
    18.1 full, straight and bowled! A loopingly slow cutter, Billings is drawn into a wild glory-seeking hack, and off come his bails! Another day when Billings has come to the party, then left it rather drunkenly after necking the tequila when the dancefloor was at his mercy 154/6
