Thanks Alan. The players are on their way out again. This will be a mighty tough chase for England. Will be interesting to see how West Indies use their spinners during this innings. For now Ravi Rampaul will open the bowling...

0.1
0
Rampaul to Kieswetter, no run, and he beats a very flat-footed Kieswetter first ball...was quite some way outside off stump and he just pushed at it
0.2
W
Rampaul to Kieswetter, OUT, gone! Two balls is all it took. A horrid hack from Kieswetter which loops in the air to point...was short of a length, we went for the pull but wasn't in a great position and the ball flew straight up

C Kieswetter c Pollard b Rampaul 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Ideal start for West Indies and England have lost a first-over wicket in each match so far

0.3
W
Rampaul to Wright, OUT, gone! First ball! Wright fends outside off and sends the ball to slip...short of a length outside off, Wright didn't know whether to play or leave and in the end the ball ran off the face to Chris Gayle

LJ Wright c Gayle b Rampaul 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
