11.25pm: That's us done for today [wipes sweat off brow]. George Dobell's full report will be in the slot shortly and myself and Gnasher will be back for more when England take on New Zealand on Saturday. The tournament is now motoring nicely, though I suspect it won't be an easy ride for anyone between now and Sunday week. Cheerio

11.20pm: Right, we're back out for the presentations...

England captain, Stuart Broad: "We had to regroup, obviously losing two wickets in that first over hurt us but we showed how good the wicket was. We were quite happy with our effort with the ball and I think we're disappointed not to win tonight. Eoin has been fantastic in this form of the game and he showed it again. The surface played pretty well, I think it was a batter's paradise. The bowlers kept them to a below par score so we're disappointed not to have chased that. We've got to stop losing early wickets because it's hurting us."

West Indies captain, Darren Sammy: "We backed ourselves to set a target and Chris and Charles got us going well. It's good to see the way Johnson Charles played, he stared off slow but he constructed an important innings. With Narine, Samuel, Chris, we decided to maximise out spinners against England and it worked out."

Johnson Charles is named as Man of the Match: "It feels very good, coming up here we want to win the tournament. It feels very good because it's my first one. On this pitch, if you bowl straight on a back of a length it is hard to score - Steve Finn is a tall man, hard to hit. It's just a matter of staying in the crease and scoring the runs."

11.15pm: So, West Indies record their first win of the tournament, though England will rue a slow start with both ball and bat that left them with too much to do. Samuels showed moxy after being hit for four off the first ball of the final over but in the end Eoin Morgan's box of fireworks wasn't quite big enough. Still, we were after a bit of tension from this tournament and today's games have provided it; let's hope the Super Eights continue to live up to their underpants-on-the-outside billing from here on in.

19.6
1
Samuels to Morgan, 1 run, pitched up again, pretty much medium pace now, dug out low to deep backward point - that's it, West Indies have won by 15 runs
19.5
1
Samuels to Buttler, 1 run, full, flat and on the stumps, clipped through backward square leg for a solitary, sorry one

Jos Buttler is in but England look fresh out of miracles

19.4
W
Samuels to Hales, OUT, got him, that will settle it! Hales advanced, Samuels fired it it full and wide, the batsman dragged his bat down but missed, was a yard or two out and Ramdin applied the coup
19.3
1
Samuels to Morgan, 1 run, angled across towards off stump, Morgan can't get underneath the ball and bunts a single into the off side
19.2
0
Samuels to Morgan, no run, dot ball! Full and speared into the slot, hacked back to the bowler
19.1
4
Samuels to Morgan, FOUR runs, full length outside off and crumped down the ground, Pollard hares round from long-off but can only tip the ball further on to the rope for four

Marlon Samuels(!) is going to bowl. Hold on to your your hat...

It's come to this. England need 23 runs to pull off an extraordinary comeback from 0 for 2. Or just 22 to set up a second Super Over for the day. Who said this World T20 was boring?
