England tour of West Indies, 1st ODI: West Indies v England at North Sound, Feb 28, 2014
West Indies won by 15 runs

Broad to Smith, FOUR, full length just outside off and it's pushed very nicely past extra-cover, timed well enough to see it run away to the fence, only just, hardly a rocket outfield

West Indies 9/0   DR Smith 5* (5b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 0.4-0-7-0

Broad to Smith, FOUR, pulled and it's third time lucky for Smith, turning this past short long leg off the stumps, a much-needed boundary

Broad to Smith, FOUR, a foot outside off, played at and gets a thick outside edge past slip that races to the fine third man fence, fortunate

West Indies 27/1   DR Smith 22* (28b 3x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 3.4-1-18-0

Bresnan to Edwards, FOUR, much fuller and driven pleasantly past mid-on, timed superbly

West Indies 36/1   KA Edwards 7* (12b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 0.2-0-4-0

Tredwell to Simmons, FOUR, drops this short and it's a moment of relief for the West Indies as Simmons rocks back and cuts through the off side

West Indies 49/4   LMP Simmons 7* (17b 1x4)   JC Tredwell 3.3-1-7-1

Jordan to DJ Bravo, FOUR, thumped! After all the prodding, Bravo unleashes a wonderful cover drive. A fraction full and wide, he leant back on the strike a little but it raced through the off side.

West Indies 84/4   DJ Bravo 14* (37b 1x4)   CJ Jordan 3.1-2-10-0

Ali to Simmons, FOUR, too short, cut through backward point for a rare commodity: a boundary

West Indies 140/4   DJ Bravo 34* (61b 2x4)   CJ Jordan 6.3-2-34-0

Broad to Simmons, FOUR, width offered and this is cracked hard for four over point, hundred partnership comes up, great effort from these two

West Indies 146/4   LMP Simmons 61* (88b 6x4)   SCJ Broad 4.2-1-23-0

Broad to Sammy, FOUR, length ball on off stump, Sammy swings hard and whacks it off the toe wide of mid-on, a right old slug but effective

Broad to DJ Bravo, FOUR, full at the leg stump, flicked fine and gets four

West Indies 168/5   DJ Bravo 48* (73b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 6-1-35-0

West Indies 223/5   DJG Sammy 38* (26b 3x4 3x6)   JE Root 9-2-47-1

Bresnan to DJ Bravo, FOUR, full and a foot wide of off stump, Bravo throws the kitchen sink at it and gets a wild outside edge that flies past short third man

West Indies 227/5   DJ Bravo 69* (83b 6x4)   TT Bresnan 8.1-1-47-2

Jordan to DJ Bravo, FOUR, steps to leg, Jordan follows him but bowls a low full toss which is steered over extra-cover
