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

Root to Powell, OUT, firm push from just outside off, in the air towards short extra-cover and Jordan dives to his right and takes a blinding catch that is an outstanding grab, an inch above the ground, fabulous reaction to get down so quickly and hold on, pressure does the trick for England

KOA Powell c Jordan b Root 5 (21m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 35.71

West Indies 19/1   DR Smith 14* (24b 1x4 1x6)   JE Root 3.2-1-9-1

Tredwell to Smith, OUT, forward on middle and leg, it loops up to where short leg might have been, Buttler runs from behind the stumps and dives forward to take the catch. England are convinced but not out is given, Broad reviews and the replay shows a huge inside edge and the decision is changed. There was a hint of grip that forced the inside edge and Buttler was out smartly to complete the dismissal, big wicket

DR Smith c †Buttler b Tredwell 24 (40m 32b 3x4 1x6) SR: 75.00

West Indies 38/2   KA Edwards 8* (18b 1x4)   JC Tredwell 0.4-0-1-1

Bresnan to Edwards, OUT, full and straight and bowled him! Off stump knocked back and Edwards goes cheaply. Seemed to just play all around that really, the delivery didn't do much, shaped in a touch but Edwards aiming to leg missed and the ball came off his pad onto the off stump

KA Edwards b Bresnan 10 (22m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

West Indies 40/3   DM Bravo 0* (2b)   TT Bresnan 1.4-0-6-1

Ali to DM Bravo, OUT, first wicket! Moeen strikes, given lbw propping forward on middle and leg. Bravo calls for the review. It was angling towards leg. Did it straighten enough? Looks pretty good, certainly to be clipping and it was out on the field. And it's hitting leg flush! Terrific moment for Moeen

DM Bravo lbw b Ali 2 (20m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

West Indies 45/4   LMP Simmons 3* (14b)   MM Ali 1.4-0-2-1

Bresnan to Simmons, OUT, a step to leg and Simmons tries to clear the off side, gets a length ball, a slower ball, high off the bat and it loops to cover and Bresnan takes a big wicket. Simmons was going along nicely and probably didn't need to play that stroke, he's rather handed it away when well set, trying to force the pace, getting into a poor position to have a big swing and being done by a ball Bresnan dragged his fingers across

LMP Simmons c Ali b Bresnan 65 (116m 94b 6x4 0x6) SR: 69.14

West Indies 153/5   DJ Bravo 38* (65b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 6.5-1-27-2

Bresnan to Sammy, OUT, low full toss outside off, a big swing is mistimed and chips it to Broad at cover so England at least end with a wicket but Sammy has played a very nice hand here

DJG Sammy c Broad b Bresnan 61 (52m 36b 5x4 4x6) SR: 169.44

West Indies 269/6   DJ Bravo 87* (91b 8x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 10-1-68-3
