England in West Indies ODI Series - 2nd ODI

West Indies v England

England won by 3 wickets (with 31 balls remaining)

Joe Root will open the bowling again...

9.25am Just a few moments away from the action. For those interested, Parry's List A numbers from last season (in 40-over cricket) were 11 wickets in eight matches with an economy rate 4.15

9.15am Suspect we'll see England open with again today. Don't think West Indies will allow them to bowl like the other day. Broad only bowled six overs in the opening game, but in an interview Ashley Giles has said he jarred his back in the field and didn't feel quite right.

9.00am England won the toss and will bowl. Stuart Broad confirms that Parry makes his debut, in place of Jordan. Eoin Morgan and Alex Hales still unfit.

England Michael Lumb, Moeen Ali, Luke Wright, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad (capt), James Tredwell, Stephen Parry

Dwayne Bravo says he would have batted anyway so is quite happy. Announces one change for WI; Nikita Miller comes in for Jason Holder.

Interesting decision from Broad on a used wicket to bowl first. You'd think it would get harder the longer the match goes

West Indies Dwayne Smith, Kieran Powell, Kirk Edwads, Darren Bravo, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Bravo (capt), Denesh Ramdin (wk), Darren Sammy, Sunil Narine, Ravi Rampaul, Nikita Miller

8.55am The suggestion from the ground is that Stephen Parry, the Lancashire left-arm spinner, will make his debut today. So England may be playing four spinners - not sure the last time that will have happened.

8.45am Hello everyone and welcome to coverage of the second one-day international from Antigua. West Indies took the honours two days ago, despite being in the back foot for significant periods of the match. England will wonder how that game got away. We'll have toss and team news shortly.

0.1

Root to Smith, no run, round the wicket, slip in place, Smith goes onto the back foot and drives to cover

0.2

Root to Smith, 1 run, dragged down short, pulled firmly out to deep midwicket...goes one bounce as it skims out to the fielder

0.3

Root to Powell, 1 run, short again, this one skids on and Powell is camped on the back foot but manages to flick it through the leg side

0.4

Root to Smith, no run, touch more air this time, fuller, pitches outside leg and defended

0.5

Root to Smith, no run, goes back and tucks to square leg

0.6

Root to Smith, 1 run, full at the stumps, pushed down the ground to long-on. Gentle start.

End of over 1 (3 runs) West Indies 3/0 (RR: 3.00)
DR Smith    2* (5b)      JE Root    1-0-3-0
KOA Powell    1* (1b)     

Stuart Broad will take the other new ball. Two slips in place, so going for edges behind first up. Not sure how long they'll stay.

1.1

Broad to Smith, no run, back of a length outside off, pushed into the off side and he sets off for a single before being sent back

1.2

Broad to Smith, no run, nice delivery, shapes away from the right hander and beats the outside edge as Smith fishes for it

1.3

Broad to Smith, 3 runs, short of a length, and this time it's a lovely piece of timing off the back foot square of the wicket through point. Stokes chases hard and just manages to flick it back. Good work.

1.4

Broad to Powell, no run, on off stump, 138kph/85mph, defended on the back foot to mid-off

1.5

Broad to Powell, no run, huge appeal for lbw! Nips back into Powell from quite a full length. Given not out. Broad likes, as ever. But he resists the urge to review. May have pitched outside leg. Yep, well outside leg

Encouraging movement for Broad

1.6

Broad to Powell, FOUR, too short this time, outside off, nicely driven off the back foot square through point

End of over 2 (7 runs) West Indies 10/0 (RR: 5.00)
KOA Powell    5* (4b 1x4)      SCJ Broad    1-0-7-0
DR Smith    5* (8b)      JE Root    1-0-3-0

Will Broad be tempted to bring on another paceman after the signs of swing? Still Root for now

2.1

Root to Smith, OUT, and he strikes! What a soft dismissal. Full outside leg, Smith tries to turn it through the leg side and just ends up clipping a low catch to short midwicket

DR Smith c Wright b Root 5 (9m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Slip and a leg slip now

Root to Edwards, no run, pushed off the back foot to cover

2.3

Root to Edwards, no run, full on leg stump, presses forward and defends to leg

2.4

Root to Edwards, 1 run, dropped at leg slip! Was outside leg stump, Edwards glanced it around the corner and Bresnan couldn't hang on to his right. He was moving to his left, so his weight was on the wrong foot

2.5

Root to Powell, 1 run, full, comes forward and drives down the ground

2.6

Root to Edwards, no run, fired in full at the stumps, driven up to mid-off

Good over from Root, and could have had two wickets

3.4

Broad to Powell, no run, short of a length, punched off the back foot to cover

3.5

Broad to Powell, FOUR, lovely shot, textbook perfect as he steps into a full delivery outside off and drives between cover and mid-off. Holds the pose. It's worth a picture or two.

End of over 4 (4 runs) West Indies 16/1 (RR: 4.00)

5.5

Ali to Edwards, no run, slightly shorter, punched off the back foot and can't beat midwicket and the bowler

KA Edwards    4* (14b)      MM Ali    1-0-1-0

So West Indies need another rebuilding act as Lendl Simmons walks in

8.3

Root to Simmons, no run, patted gently into the off side

8.4

Root to Simmons, no run, touch shorter on leg stump, defended

priyank: "So many chances Dwayne Smith has had till now. He never was a proper batsman and i am not sure he is the right fit for 50 over cricket. WI selectors need to move on and find a better replacement for gayle who anyway has just a few years left with his age and injury issues. May be they should make simmons open and play sarwan in the middle order."

8.5

Bopara to Simmons, no run, full at the off stump, driven off the inner half of the bat back to the bowler

29.1

Bopara to DJ Bravo, no run, full just outside off pushed to short extra cover

Over the wicket

30.2

Tredwell to Simmons, no run, touch short outside off but Simmons misses his cut shot

30.3

Tredwell to Simmons, no run, fuller this time, gets onto the front foot and drives to cover

KellyM: "Why is Broad not bowling Stokes at all? It doesn't seem he has a defined role in the team at all, and his pace could be handy here" The suggestion is he is trying different options ahead of the World T20. And, England are keen to take pace off the ball on this surface

Back around

30.5

I've been informed there are quite a few of you following us from the UAE today. Hello to you all. Meanwhile, KellyM will be pleased: Ben Stokes is into the attack for the first time this series

31.1

Stokes to DJ Bravo, 1 wide, pushed down the leg side, starts with a wide

31.1

Stokes to DJ Bravo, no run, gets onto off stump, a full length, defended to cover

31.2

Stokes to DJ Bravo, FOUR, powerful drive and he beats mid-off, was very full from Stokes and Bravo put all his power behind the shot. The bat turned in his hand, so not perfectly time but hit it hard enough

31.3

Stokes to DJ Bravo, 2 leg byes, slanted into the pads, deflects behind square and the lack of pace on the ball means they can make a second

31.4

Stokes to DJ Bravo, no run, banged in short, he goes for the pull and that comes off his ribs towards Buttler. He's in a bit of pain after that

31.5

Stokes to DJ Bravo, no run, fuller on off stump, defended

31.6

Stokes to DJ Bravo, 1 run, keeps it full at middle, met with a straight bat and it's punched firmly towards mid-on

End of over 32 (8 runs) West Indies 112/4 (RR: 3.50)

LMP Simmons    46* (79b 4x4)      JC Tredwell    7-2-26-0

32.1

Tredwell to DJ Bravo, 1 run, just out of Tredwell's reach, he got a leading edge trying to work a full ball to leg but it was chipped over the outstretched hand

32.2

Tredwell to Simmons, 1 run, worked down the ground

32.3

Tredwell to DJ Bravo, 1 run, uses his feet then works this from outside leg along the ground through midwicket

32.4

Tredwell to Simmons, 2 runs, touch short outside off, spins back into Simmons as he cuts through point to the cover sweeper

32.5

Tredwell to Simmons, no run, fuller outside off, Simmons comes forward with bat and pad together

32.6

Tredwell to Simmons, 1 run, gets across outside off, works the ball to long-on to bring up back-to-back half-centuries. Another well-controlled innings after the team had been in trouble

This time, Simmons will want to be the one to see out the innings. A hundred on offer if he does that.

End of over 33 (6 runs) West Indies 118/4 (RR: 3.57)
LMP Simmons    50* (83b 4x4)      JC Tredwell    8-2-32-0
DJ Bravo    17* (31b 1x4)      BA Stokes    1-0-6-0

33.1

Stokes to Simmons, 1 run, back of a length on off stump, opens the face and places it out to deep cover

33.2

Stokes to DJ Bravo, 1 run, full and powerfully driven straight to mid-off...but a wayward throw gives away a single. Sloppy.

33.3

Stokes to Simmons, 1 run, opens the face and runs the ball to third man

33.4

Stokes to DJ Bravo, 1 wide, shoved way down the leg side, another wide

33.4

Stokes to DJ Bravo, 1 run, full outside off, gets forward and pushes out to deep cover

33.5

Stokes to Simmons, 1 run, even fuller this time, driven firmly through the off side

33.6

Stokes to DJ Bravo, 1 run, short ball, at the body, he goes for the pull and isn't far from picking out deep square-leg

Paulo: "Bring back Moeen Ali for some control. Also since Alex Winter has recently been watching the lions, do you think any of them should be in this team (albeit a different format)" I'll get Alex to answer that during his next stint.

End of over 34 (7 runs) West Indies 125/4 (RR: 3.67)
DJ Bravo    20* (34b 1x4)      BA Stokes    2-0-13-0
LMP Simmons    53* (86b 4x4)      JC Tredwell    8-2-32-0

34.2

Tredwell to DJ Bravo, no run, driven back to the bowler this time

34.3

Tredwell to DJ Bravo, 1 leg bye, glances off the pad fine of the keeper, for some reason Tredwell appeals but that must have pitched outside leg

34.4

Tredwell to Simmons, SIX, fantastic shot! Was given a touch more air by Tredwell and Simmons responded by going inside out over extra cover, just opened the face at the last moment. Lovely.

34.5

Tredwell to Simmons, 1 run, now he drops a single into the off side. Mature batting

34.6

Tredwell to DJ Bravo, OUT, stumped down the leg side! But only just. Buttler will breath a sigh if relief here, because he so nearly messed it up. Bravo was miles out of his ground, but Buttler lost control of the ball but the third umpire has ruled that it was still the ball (and not the gloves) which broke the stumps. The ball wasn't called wide

DJ Bravo st †Buttler b Tredwell 20 (52m 38b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.63

Not sure West Indies are impressed with that decision. Ottis Gibson looking at a laptop. That is a key wicket. Bravo, as he showed two days ago, is dangerous at the end. Also, that was the last ball before the Powerplay has to be taken.

End of over 35 (8 runs) West Indies 133/5 (RR: 3.80)
     JC Tredwell    9-2-39-1
LMP Simmons    60* (88b 4x4 1x6)      BA Stokes    2-0-13-0

Parry back for the Powerplay

35.4

Parry to Simmons, 1 run, dragged down short but it's just nudged along the ground to deep midwicket

35.5

Parry to Sammy, no run, full at middle, hint of turn, defended

35.6

Parry to Sammy, no run, blocked back to the bowler. Good comeback over by Parry

End of over 36 (3 runs) West Indies 136/5 (RR: 3.77)

LMP Simmons    62* (90b 4x4 1x6)      JC Tredwell    9-2-39-1

Stuart Broad brings himself on

Sam: "The 3rd umpire had at least a dozen looks at it. That itself tells you how much doubt he had. None of the angles were conclusion, so he gives him out?" Tight decision.

36.1

Broad to Simmons, 1 run, on leg stump, flicked down to fine leg

36.2

Broad to Sammy, 1 run, short of a length at the body, gets inside the line and works it off his hip to fine leg

36.3

Broad to Simmons, no run, on off stump, short of a length, played to cover

36.4

Broad to Simmons, 1 run, short ball, Simmons goes for the pull and it comes off a top edge near the splice but doesn't have the carry to reach deep midwicket

36.5

Broad to Sammy, no run, bouncer over off stump, Sammy ducks

36.6

Broad to Sammy, no run, short again, outside off, loops through to Buttler and doesn't actually carry on the full

krishna : "that was a bad decision by the 3rd umpire. buttler was definitely not in control of the ball when he dislodged the bails!" Doesn't matter if Buttler was in control, just whether ball or gloves broke the stumps. Remember the Wade stumping of Bopara in Adelaide?

End of over 37 (3 runs) West Indies 139/5 (RR: 3.75)
DJG Sammy    2* (7b)      SCJ Broad    7-0-21-1
LMP Simmons    64* (93b 4x4 1x6)      SD Parry    6-1-16-0

37.1

Parry to Simmons, no run, floated full outside off, prodded to the covers

37.2

Parry to Simmons, no run, uses his feet, but the ball is shorter so he has to adjust and plays it square to point

37.3

Parry to Simmons, no run, comes down again, Parry keeping it back of a length, defended

37.4

Parry to Simmons, SIX, that's a good connection...a slightly fuller delivery, he stayed in the crease, went down for the slog sweep and launched it high over deep midwicket

37.5

Parry to Simmons, OUT, first wicket for Parry! Good response. He held his nerve. Simmons trying to go over the top again, but didn't seem quite so committed this time. It was more a chip as he came down the pitch and it lands in the hands of deep midwicket.

LMP Simmons c Stokes b Parry 70 (120m 98b 4x4 2x6) SR: 71.42

Those two wickets will ensure West Indies have to hold back on the onslaught today. Ramdin the new batsman.

37.6

Parry to Sammy, no run, full on off stump, Sammy leans forward to defend

End of over 38 (6 runs) West Indies 145/6 (RR: 3.81)
DJG Sammy    2* (8b)      SD Parry    7-1-22-1
D Ramdin    0* (0b)      SCJ Broad    7-0-21-1

38.1

Broad to Ramdin, FOUR, top shot, a floaty full delivery outside off and Ramdin leans forward to drive through the off side

38.2

Broad to Ramdin, no run, drags the length back, defended square to point

38.3

Broad to Ramdin, no run, bouncer over off stump, Ramdin ducks

38.4

Broad to Ramdin, no run, squares him up a touch on off stump, defended to the covers

Matthew: "Did Collingwood have to do any fielding the other day, and is he still the 13th man?" No, he wasn't needed in the end. Not sure if he's 13th man again.

38.5

Broad to Ramdin, no run, on off stump, defended

38.6

Broad to Ramdin, no run, a beauty! On a full length and nips away to beat the outside edge

End of over 39 (4 runs) West Indies 149/6 (RR: 3.82)
D Ramdin    4* (6b 1x4)      SCJ Broad    8-0-25-1
DJG Sammy    2* (8b)      SD Parry    7-1-22-1

39.1

Parry to Sammy, 1 run, full and pushed to long off

AndreS: "Besides the dubious stumping of DJ Bravo, why wasn't a wide called?" A mistake. Should have been.

39.2

Parry to Ramdin, no run, on the back foot, defended

39.3

Parry to Ramdin, 1 run, swept off the stumps out to deep square

39.4

DJG Sammy    3* (12b)      SD Parry    8-1-24-1
D Ramdin    5* (8b 1x4)      SCJ Broad    8-0-25-1

Cheers Gnasher, 220-230 is perhaps the best West Indies can hope for from here, without the platform of Friday. Bresnan is back...

40.1

Bresnan to Ramdin, no run, full at the off stump, blocked back to the bowler

40.2

Bresnan to Ramdin, OUT, length ball angles back from a length, Ramdin is late on this and guides it onto his stumps and now West Indies are really struggling. Ramdin stood in the crease and looked to run a length ball down to third man but it came back at him, cramped him for room and he ended up deflecting it into his timbers

D Ramdin b Bresnan 5 (10m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

40.3

Bresnan to Miller, no run, full at the off stump, flicked back to the bowler

40.4

40.5

Bresnan to Miller, no run, bumper, ducked beneath

40.6

Bresnan to Miller, no run, full again and blocked firmly up to mid-off

NO Miller    0* (4b)      TT Bresnan    4-1-13-1
DJG Sammy    3* (12b)      SD Parry    8-1-24-1

Perhaps that best-case scenario should be revised down to 200-210 now?

41.1

Parry to Sammy, OUT, back of a length delivery, Sammy goes back and pulls hard to midwicket, Broad reaches up to take the catch or does he? He spills it, turns around, flicks the ball up and then is able to cling on. Sammy peels himself off having picked out the fielder, he connected very well but couldn't find the gap

DJG Sammy c Broad b Parry 3 (28m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 23.07

41.2

Parry to Narine, no run, forward and blocked in front of off stump

41.3

Parry to Narine, no run, played forward and blocked back to the bowler again

41.4

Parry to Narine, no run, props forward to defend again

41.5

Parry to Narine, FOUR, down the track and hammered hard over mid-off, great timing

41.6

Parry to Narine, OUT, shuffle down the crease, aims another swing down the ground, misses and Buttler whips off the bails no doubt about this one at all. There wasn't the flight on this delivery that made is as attractive to attack and it has zipped past Narine's bat and he actually held the pose in the follow-through knowing he was a goner

SP Narine st †Buttler b Parry 4 (3m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

End of over 42 (4 runs) West Indies 155/9 (RR: 3.69)
     SD Parry    9-1-28-3
NO Miller    0* (4b)      TT Bresnan    4-1-13-1

Could be 180-190 now!

42.1

Bresnan to Miller, no run, short ball outside off, ignored

42.2

Bresnan to Miller, no run, short again, Miller sways inside the line again

42.3

Bresnan to Miller, no run, fuller a foot wide of off stump, Miller shoulders arms

42.4

Bresnan to Miller, no run, tighter line and blocked on the front foot

42.5

Bresnan to Miller, no run, bumper and ducked

42.6

Bresnan to Miller, no run, full at the stumps, Miller tries to clear the front leg and swing over the leg side but is hurried and gets it off high on the bat to midwicket

End of over 43 (maiden) West Indies 155/9 (RR: 3.60)
NO Miller    0* (10b)      TT Bresnan    5-2-13-1
R Rampaul    0* (0b)      SD Parry    9-1-28-3

43.1

Parry to Rampaul, no run, full at the stumps, flicked to midwicket

43.2

Parry to Miller, no run, wider outside off, tries to late cut and gets it off a bottom edge on the bounce to slip

Parry to Miller, 2 runs, little straight and tickled fine, chase for deep-backward square

A fine first international spell from Stephen Parry...

End of over 44 (4 runs) West Indies 159/9 (RR: 3.61)
NO Miller    2* (13b)      SD Parry    10-1-32-3
R Rampaul    1* (3b)      TT Bresnan    5-2-13-1

Tredwell comes back...

44.1

Tredwell to Rampaul, no run, around the wicket, straight line, blocked into the covers

44.2

Tredwell to Rampaul, OUT, down the track and lifted down the ground but Rampaul doesn't get all of it and long-off takes the catch running to his left. Seemed to come off low on the bat and the fielder was able to run a few yards to his left and pouch the chance a yard inside the boundary

R Rampaul c Lumb b Tredwell 1 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

12.35pm, interval Well England will be delighted with that effort, early wickets came again and Lendl Simmons led the recovery again but this time England backed up their work at the top of the innings and West Indies folded pretty miserably in the end and have set what should be a meagre target. The chase begins in 40 mins...
