England tour of West Indies, 3rd ODI: West Indies v England at North Sound, Mar 5, 2014

Root to Powell, OUT, bowled him, misses with the slog-sweep! Root has a wicket to go with his hundred, he looks just a delighted, if not more so, running off with his arms outstretched... This skidded on with the arm, ungainly swipe from Powell and the castle was breached

KOA Powell b Root 1 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

West Indies 10/1   DR Smith 9* (3b 2x4)   JE Root 1-0-10-1

Broad to Smith, OUT, dug in short, Smith hooks flamboyantly... and picks out deep backward square leg! Two in two balls, brainless from Smith, really, with his partner having just fallen. It was back of a length, sat up to be pulled but he got under it as he swivelled, one leg in the air, and picked out the fielder on the fence

DR Smith c Ali b Broad 9 (4m 4b 2x4 0x6) SR: 225.00

West Indies 10/2   DM Bravo 0* (0b)   SCJ Broad 0.1-0-0-1

Ali to DM Bravo, OUT, skips out and nails a crashing shot across the line... but Bopara has plucked it nonchalantly above his head at short midwicket! Moeen also picks up a wicket in his first over, Bravo gone in a puff of smoke thanks to some magic from Bopara

DM Bravo c Bopara b Ali 16 (22m 20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

West Indies 42/3   LMP Simmons 16* (15b 3x4)   MM Ali 1-0-5-1

Broad to Simmons, OUT, no doubt about this, Simmons has dragged on! The line was outside off, not giving Simmons anything, he tried to pull when it wasn't all that short, maybe ducked back a little off the surface and a clunking bottom edge ricocheted down into the woodwork

LMP Simmons b Broad 16 (31m 21b 3x4 0x6) SR: 76.19

West Indies 43/4   MN Samuels 0* (0b)   SCJ Broad 4-0-14-2

Parry to Samuels, OUT, five down! Samuels has been given out caught behind cutting. Joel Wilson gives the decision on-field, but Samuels reviews. No massive edge or sound, but it was been given on-field, remember. Another interesting one for the third umpire. He now looks at the slow-mo. Quite similar to the Buttler review, earlier, which was overturned to a not out. This one is upheld! Samuels has to walk (slowly) off

MN Samuels c †Buttler b Parry 23 (56m 39b 0x4 2x6) SR: 58.97

West Indies 80/5   D Ramdin 14* (32b)   SD Parry 2.5-1-7-1

Bopara to DJ Bravo, OUT, Ravi strikes! Back of a length on off stump, Bravo trying to work it down to third man and the edge is very well held by Buttler up to the timber

DJ Bravo c †Buttler b Bopara 27 (34m 32b 3x4 0x6) SR: 84.37

West Indies 131/6   D Ramdin 33* (57b 2x4)   RS Bopara 1.2-0-11-1

Bresnan to Sammy, OUT, Sammy explodes, England rejoice! Stokes claims an excellent running catch, above his head at deep backward square, he had to get round the rope whilst making sure to stay inside it, as Sammy took on the Bresnan bumper again - initially looked like it would go all the way but wasn't quite out of the screws, dipping in front of the stands and Stokes made it look easy

DJG Sammy c Stokes b Bresnan 24 (45m 35b 2x4 1x6) SR: 68.57

West Indies 202/7   D Ramdin 72* (86b 7x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 6-0-17-1

Bresnan to Miller, OUT, Miller's luck runs out, heaves across the line, top-edging to short extra cover! Bresnan landed this back of a length on the stumps, Miller tried to do too much, when he really just needed to get Ramdin back on strike

NO Miller c sub (CJ Jordan) b Bresnan 10 (21m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.82

West Indies 246/8   D Ramdin 106* (100b 9x4 4x6)   TT Bresnan 7.1-0-23-2

Broad to Ramdin, OUT, superb work from Broad and Narine is run out at the non-striker's end! England need just one more wicket (though remember how that turned out in Brisbane a few weeks ago?), Narine was backing up a long way only for Ramdin's pull to go straight to Chris Jordan, the substitute fielding at mid-on, his throw was good but it required Broad to grab it on the bounce and swing his arms back to flick off the bails as he passed the stumps. Dexterous stuff... West Indies now clinging on by a fingertip

SP Narine run out 10 (9m 6b 0x4 1x6) SR: 166.66

West Indies 263/9   D Ramdin 113* (104b 10x4 4x6)   SCJ Broad 8.5-0-57-2

Bresnan to Ramdin, OUT, bowled him, Bresnan squeezes the yorker past Ramdin! Leg stump is out of the ground, Ramdin is flat on the metaphorical canvas, England have won! Bresnan is engulfed by his team-mates, he held his nerve after being taken for three consecutive boundaries... Ramdin stepped away, Bresnan went full and straight and though the bat came down, all he could do was deflect the ball on to the wicket. As heartbeats begin to return to normal, England have won by 25 runs and take the series 2-1

D Ramdin b Bresnan 128 (167m 109b 12x4 5x6) SR: 117.43

West Indies 278/10   R Rampaul 0* (0b)   TT Bresnan 8.4-0-45-3
