    1.1 round the wicket, dollied on the stumps.... and he skies a catch to mid-on! Stokes settled safely under it and England's funky cricket brings them an early reward. Huge yahoo from Charles, who's not subtle at the best of times, straight up and down and he's back in the hutch for spit 1/1
    1.3 slogged into the sky - straight to long-off! Root has two in the over, and CHRIS GAYLE IS OUT! He's gone one better than Kohli already, Gayle was looking to bludgeon the ball into the stands over long-off, as he has done so many times to so many offspinners, but he got slightly under it, sliced towards "Safe Hands" Stokes running round to his right... and he's mobbed by his team-mates! Root is bellowing in celebration, England have landed a huge blow in this final 5/2

    2.3 straightening, struck on the pads in front of leg stump - given! Yoinks, this is a sensational start from England! Was that a touch high? Rod Tucker didn't think so and Simmons is gone for a golden duck! Pitched in line with middle and leg, hurtled on to hit the pads - and Hawk-Eye has it hitting the top of the stumps! England are cock-a-hoop (and that's not a Willey pun) 11/3
    13.6 pushed through a touch quicker, Bravo swivels and attempts to plant Rashid in the stands again... but instead the top edge plops into the hands of backward point! Rashid strikes with his final ball, but it's probably not the man England wanted 86/4
    15.1 dug in short, Russell pirouettes on the spot - but sends a pull straight into the hands of Stokes on the deep midwicket boundary! Willey pulls out a pair of imaginary pistols and starts shooting off bottle tops... He was trying to clear the boundary on the longest side of the ground, middled the shot but found Stokes running in to stoop and conquer 104/5
    15.3 goes for the big shot - AND HOLES OUT TO DEEP COVER! Sammy keeps up his Invisible Man routine, and you have to say that was not a sensible shot, only his third ball, a man standing out there, and he's picked him out. England are not letting go here 107/6
