Commentary

Superb performance by England, winning by nine wickets. It's very rare you see England outperform their opponents so convincingly in Twenty20s, but this was a far improved effort with the bat than their sticky and mechanical performance against Scotland yesterday. Luke Wright and Ravi Bopara both excelled as openers, leaving West Indies looking rather hapless. Questions remain for them: we still don't know why Chris Gayle played, but didn't bat or captain, and all in all they've not gleaned much from this warm-up. The real matches all kick off on Friday - do join us then.

Edwards to Wright, 1 no ball, a bouncer down the leg side, and it's wided - that'll do for England

Pietersen's just shaken hands with someone, perhaps forgetting England still need a single

Edwards to Wright, FOUR runs, strong, muscular bunt down the ground for four

Edwards to Pietersen, 1 run, pulled to fine leg and Wright's back on strike

Edwards to Pietersen, no run, and it's a bouncer and it's very fast, and Pietersen rocks out of the way

Another man goes out for the hook. Edwards desperately wants KP here! This should be fun

Edwards to Pietersen, no run, short and very, very fast. Pietersen pulls but can't connect. 94mph.

Six to win. Edwards marks his run-up like a six-year-old trying to keep pace with his dad on a march

Baker to Wright, FOUR runs, it's a full toss and again Wright goes leg-side, picking it up over midwicket for four more. He's beginning to grin inanely here - he's loving it
