England tour of West Indies, 2nd T20I: West Indies v England at Bridgetown, Mar 11, 2014
West Indies won by 5 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)
11 March 2014 (20-over match)

Out come the players...the showers that are threatening have held off so far. Samuel Badree will open the bowling. Slip in place

1.50pm The suggestion is that Wright will move down the order and Moeen will be at No. 3, but we'll know for certain in a short while. Will be interesting to see how England play Badree today knowing Narine isn't in the attack.

Raj Chandra makes a fair point: "Narine only bowled 2 overs and WI still won the previous game handily. WI still have 2 spinners (Badree & Samuels), Badree was the match winner last game. Santokie will fill in for Narine nicely by bowling tidy overs."

Meanwhile, has anyone got an tips or advice (or ideas of things to do) for Alan when he's in Bangladesh.

1.40pm Think it's fair to say Luke Wright is a lucky man to still be in the team. Having said that, Ben Stokes did look very out of sorts the other day.

Mark: "No Narine and England with a better-balanced side? Could it be that we will see the sudden revival of England's T20 fortunes thanks to some common sense and the lack of the opposition's key match-winner?"

1.30pm England win the toss and bat. Morgan says the pitch looks pretty similar to the first one. Moeen and Parry confirmed as making debuts. Luke Wright keeps his place, Ben Stokes misses out. Darren Sammy wants West Indies to improve on their opening performance. He also confirms that Narine will not play, Krishmar Santokie, the left-armer, comes into the side.

West Indies Dwayne Smith, Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Bravo, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Darren Sammy (capt), Ravi Rampaul, Samuel Badree, Krishmar Santokie

England Alex Hales, Michael Lumb, Moeen Ali, Eoin Morgan (capt), Joe Buttler (wk), Ravi Bopara, Luke Wright, Tim Bresnan, James Tredwell, Stephen Parry, Jade Dernbach

1.25pm The word from the ground is that Stephen Parry and Moeen Ali have been handed their T20 caps. We know that Stuart Broad is out, Eoin Morgan will captain England. Confirmation of the teams shortly. Narine did not look comfortable in the warm-ups.

1.15pm Hello and welcome to coverage of the second T20 between West Indies and England. I'm Andrew McGlashan and along with Alan Gardner, in his final commentary stint before heading to Bangladesh, will bring you all the action. The home side played close to a perfect game two days ago to expose familiar weaknesses from England. The toss takes place in 15 minutes, a number of changes are expected for England and we are awaiting news on Sunil Narine's fitness. The match today is being played a new pitch.

0.1

Badree to Lumb, 1 run, almost sneaks through first ball, Lumb went onto the back foot and this took an inside edge to the leg side

0.2

Badree to Hales, no run, cramped for room first ball, spins back into Hales and cuts it off his stumps

0.3

Badree to Hales, FOUR, finds the gap this time, staying on the back foot and cuts between backward point and short third man

0.4

Badree to Hales, no run, not getting forward, pushes this square into the off side

0.5

Badree to Hales, 1 run, drifts into the pads, clipped in front of square

0.6

Badree to Lumb, 2 runs, flicks a full delivery on middle through midwicket and places it wide enough of long-on for a second

End of over 1 (8 runs) England 8/0 (RR: 8.00)

    • MJ Lumb 3 (2b)
    • AD Hales 5 (4b 1x4)
    • S Badree 1-0-8-0

Krishmar Santokie will share the new ball

1.1

Santokie to Hales, no run, starts full outside off, hint of swing, Hales chases it but his foot wasn't anywhere close to the ball and he missed

1.2

Santokie to Hales, 2 runs, close! This time Hales connects with his drive, squirts off the toe and goes behind square falling just in front of backward point then bursts through Smith's hands

1.3

Santokie to Hales, 1 run, keeping it full on off stump, hint of movement, Hales drives and it comes off a thick edge to third man

1.4

Santokie to Lumb, 1 run, strong drive from Lumb, advancing down the pitch, holds his shape and picks out deep cover

The groundstaff are getting ready

1.5

Santokie to Hales, 1 run, gets forward, carefully opens the face and it runs to backward point

1.6

Santokie to Lumb, OUT, he's not happy with this! Lumb well across his stumps, it's a full toss, and he's sure he's got an inside edge on this before it clips the pad. Replays aren't clear straight away, so it will have been a thin one of he hit it. Was certainly straight enough

MJ Lumb lbw b Santokie 4 (7m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Moeen Ali in at No. 3 on debut. Not on strike yet.

End of over 2 (5 runs) England 13/1 (RR: 6.50)

    • AD Hales 9 (8b 1x4)
    • K Santokie 1-0-5-1
    • S Badree 1-0-8-0
2.1

Badree to Hales, no run, full on the stumps, defended to the leg side

2.2

Badree to Hales, 1 run, worked through the leg side

2.3

Badree to Ali, no run, beaten...a beauty from Badree, spins away on off stump and scoots past the edge

2.4

Badree to Ali, no run, pushed into the off side

2.5

Badree to Ali, no run, nudged back to the bowler

Further replays of the Lumb wicket suggest there may not have been an edge at all

2.6

Badree to Ali, 1 run, flicked from outside off down to long-on

End of over 3 (2 runs) England 15/1 (RR: 5.00)

    • MM Ali 1 (4b)
    • AD Hales 10 (10b 1x4)
    • S Badree 2-0-10-0
    • K Santokie 1-0-5-1
3.1

Santokie to Ali, 2 leg byes, full on leg stump, clips the pad and beats a diving Ramdin but Russell chases it hard from short fine-leg and flicks it back just before the rope

3.2

Santokie to Ali, FOUR, leg side again, and this time Moeen picks it up cleanly off his pads, sending it behind square...sweetly struck

3.3

Santokie to Ali, OUT, gone this time! Santokie on fire. A lovely slower ball completely defeated Moeen. Was full on off stump, just gripped off the surface, Moeen was far to early on his shot and that was right in front

MM Ali lbw b Santokie 5 (5m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

England's stand-in captain at No. 4

3.4

Santokie to Morgan, no run, gives Morgan a slower ball first up, he watches it closely and defends to the leg side

3.5

Santokie to Morgan, no run, full and wide, Morgan reaches for it away from his body and just gets the toe end of the bat

3.6

Santokie to Morgan, 2 runs, finds the edge, but it's well controlled by Morgan who played with soft hands to guide it wide of first slip...Badree runs around the boundary then sticks a boot out

End of over 4 (8 runs) England 23/2 (RR: 5.75)

    • EJG Morgan 2 (3b)
    • AD Hales 10 (10b 1x4)
    • K Santokie 2-0-11-2
    • S Badree 2-0-10-0
4.1

Badree to Hales, 1 leg bye, big appeal! This time not out. Hales staying on the back foot, was a quicker ball that skidded on and Hales was flicking across the line. Not a bad shout. Hawk Eye says it would have clattered leg stump.

4.2

Badree to Morgan, 1 run, tucked off the stumps into midwicket

4.3

Badree to Hales, 1 run, full on leg stump, turned off the pads out to deep square

Arsalan: "Why dont they have DRS in these T20s? I mean one wrong decision can clearly alter the course of the game?" It's a fair question. Not something they've been keen to use in T20s

4.4

Badree to Morgan, no run, another lovely delivery, sliding across Morgan and beats the outside edge

4.5

Badree to Morgan, no run, cut to short third man

4.6

Badree to Morgan, OUT, England in the mire again! The captain goes. He goes for the sweep, it comes off a top edge and deep square-leg has plenty of time to settle under a comfortable catch

EJG Morgan c Simmons b Badree 3 (5m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

End of over 5 (3 runs) England 26/3 (RR: 5.20)

    • AD Hales 11 (12b 1x4)
    • S Badree 3-0-12-1
    • K Santokie 2-0-11-2

Jos Buttler likes to finish. He has to start today.

5.1

Santokie to Buttler, 1 run, squares him up with some late movement, was a full delivery, runs off a thick outside edge

Keeper comes up to the stumps

5.2

Santokie to Hales, no run, full on off stump, Hales is forward and drives to cover

5.3

Santokie to Hales, no run, drives again, this time opens the face at the last moment to try and find the gap but can't beat point

5.4

Santokie to Hales, 1 run, push and run into the covers. Might have been close if Sammy had picked the ball up cleanly

5.5

Santokie to Buttler, 1 run, angled across outside off, opens the face and runs it down to third man

5.6

Santokie to Hales, 1 run, another close shave...Hales chops a bottom edge that scuttles past the stumps and then there's some confusion over the run before they make it home

Terrific Powerplay for West Indies. Horrid for England.

End of over 6 (4 runs) England 30/3 (RR: 5.00)

    • AD Hales 13 (16b 1x4)
    • JC Buttler 2 (2b)
    • K Santokie 3-0-15-2
    • S Badree 3-0-12-1

Badree will bowl out

6.1

Badree to Hales, 1 run, pushed off the back foot down to long on

Slip comes back in

6.2

Badree to Buttler, 1 run, goes down early to try and play a cute paddle, gets it through short fine-leg...England have barely hit a ball straight in this innings

6.3

Badree to Hales, no run, on the back foot, played into the covers

6.4

Badree to Hales, no run, worked out to midwicket

Innocent Bystander: "England are so bad they've even broken twitter...."

6.5

Badree to Hales, 1 run, slog sweep this time, fetched from well outside off and it goes straight to deep midwicket

6.6

Badree to Buttler, 1 run, touch shorter, Buttler cracks it through point to the sweeper

Another fantastic four overs from Badree. But England have played him like he's Murali or Warne.

End of over 7 (4 runs) England 34/3 (RR: 4.85)

    • JC Buttler 4 (4b)
    • AD Hales 15 (20b 1x4)
    • S Badree 4-0-16-1
    • K Santokie 3-0-15-2

More spin. Marlon Samuels into the attack.

7.1

Samuels to Buttler, FOUR, round the wicket, very full, and driven nicely through the off side...Santokie tries to kick it back, but the ball has hit the rope first

7.2

Samuels to Buttler, no run, drags the length back, prodded into the off side

7.3

Samuels to Buttler, no run, flicked out to midwicket

7.4

Samuels to Buttler, no run, on off stump, quickish, blocked by to the bowler

7.5

Samuels to Buttler, no run, driven back down the pitch...dynamic from England

7.6

Samuels to Buttler, 1 run, touch shorter outside off, pushed to deep cover

anil: "Is gayle able to bowl?? or he has any problem?" He probably won't be risked after his recent injury problems

End of over 8 (5 runs) England 39/3 (RR: 4.87)

    • JC Buttler 9 (10b 1x4)
    • AD Hales 15 (20b 1x4)
    • MN Samuels 1-0-5-0
    • S Badree 4-0-16-1

Pace on the ball now as Ravi Rampaul comes into the attack

8.1

Rampaul to Buttler, FOUR, starts short, Buttler shapes for a pull and it flies off a healthy top edge down to third man...not far from carrying for six

8.2

Rampaul to Buttler, no run, fuller this time, angled to backward point where Sammy prevents the single

8.3

Rampaul to Buttler, 1 run, back of a length, straighter delivery, nudged into the leg side

Sarun: "Ashley Giles jotting down in his notebook, would go through a few books at the end of this T20!" He loves a good note.

8.4

Rampaul to Hales, 1 run, dropped by Ramdin. The ball went miles into the air, Hales mowing across the line of a full ball, a cutter, and it flew behind the batsman towards third man. Ramdin called early and actually over-ran the ball

8.5

Rampaul to Buttler, 1 wide, very wide outside off, called

Andrew Ryder sums England's effort up: "This is dross!!"

8.5

Rampaul to Buttler, 2 runs, another positive drive through the off side, placed wide of the cover sweeper

8.6

Rampaul to Buttler, 1 run, short of a length, another cutter I think, pushed to the off side

End of over 9 (10 runs) England 49/3 (RR: 5.44)

    • JC Buttler 17 (15b 2x4)
    • AD Hales 16 (21b 1x4)
    • R Rampaul 1-0-10-0
    • MN Samuels 1-0-5-0
9.1

Samuels to Buttler, 1 run, outside off, angled to short third man...England reach fifty

9.2

Samuels to Hales, no run, worked to midwicket

Dave: "Team Unity due to bat at 6 and dig England out of a hole"

9.3

Samuels to Hales, 2 runs, shorter outside off, neatly guided backward of point but still can't find the boundary

9.4

Samuels to Hales, 2 runs, short again, Hales rocks back and cuts in front of square this time

9.5

Samuels to Hales, SIX, steady on, folks, it's a six! Hales comes down the pitch and swings cleanly through the line to send it comfortably over long-on

They are hunting for the ball. Probably need a new one.

9.6

Samuels to Hales, 1 run, flicked off the back foot to deep square

Tim: "Embarrassed to be an Englishman... But there's just too many games, playing for the country is being devalued." The latter part of that point is very interesting. For now, I'll hand over to Alan

End of over 10 (12 runs) England 61/3 (RR: 6.10)

    • AD Hales 27 (26b 1x4 1x6)
    • JC Buttler 18 (16b 2x4)
    • MN Samuels 2-0-17-0
    • R Rampaul 1-0-10-0

Howdy, so where's this one going, eh? Nowhere quickly, that's for sure... Rampaul will continue

10.1

Rampaul to Hales, no run, back of a length, wide of the stumps and Hales pulls hard across the line... and carves himself a slice of fresh air

10.2

Rampaul to Hales, 1 run, fuller length, tailing in and flicked off middle and leg for a single through square

Neil hasn't quite given up yet: "When you're 26-3 after 5 overs, getting to at least the 10th over without losing another wicket is key. Get to at least 12 or 13 overs & one of them can start swinging away. I know we're bound to collapse in a heap when the swinging begins, but at least we could make 100 with those tactics."

10.3

Rampaul to Buttler, 1 run, bit of width, Buttler angles the bat and takes a single in front of point

10.4

Rampaul to Hales, 1 run, pitched up on off stump, again Hales closes the face of the bat and works one through midwicket, they think about two but the throw is good

10.5

Rampaul to Buttler, no run, Buttler backs away and Rampaul spots the movement, fires the ball full on the pads, beating the bat... good bowling

10.6

Rampaul to Buttler, 1 run, full and straight and clipped through midwicket to the sweeper for one more

End of over 11 (4 runs) England 65/3 (RR: 5.90)

    • JC Buttler 20 (19b 2x4)
    • AD Hales 29 (29b 1x4 1x6)
    • R Rampaul 2-0-14-0
    • MN Samuels 2-0-17-0

Darren Sammy brings himself on, some respite from spin for England...

11.1

Sammy to Buttler, FOUR, drops short straight away and Buttler pulls hard and flat in front of deep midwicket, good connection, starts the over with a boundary

11.2

Sammy to Buttler, 1 run, back of a length again, swatted through the leg side

11.3

Sammy to Hales, 1 run, what a catc... oh, he's dropped it! Sensational attempt from Chris Gayle at backward point from Hales' slice, he hung in the air, like a leopard lazily draped across a tree branch, clutched the ball but couldn't hold on as he fell to ground

11.4

Sammy to Buttler, FOUR, Buttler steps away and clubs a tennis-style shot straight back past the bowler, who throws his hands up but really had no chance there

11.5

Sammy to Buttler, SIX, scooped for six, what a shot! Buttler goes back and across outside off and flips a length ball all the way over the rope at long leg... amazing power

11.6

Sammy to Buttler, 1 run, slower ball, pitched up outside off and Buttler drills it back, Sammy gets a hand on it but can't prevent another run

Very good over for England. Can they get the motor running now?

End of over 12 (17 runs) England 82/3 (RR: 6.83)

    • JC Buttler 36 (24b 4x4 1x6)
    • AD Hales 30 (30b 1x4 1x6)
    • DJG Sammy 1-0-17-0
    • R Rampaul 2-0-14-0

Here's John on the schedule: "Completely agree with Tim, there are way too many games today, there is hardly any pride in winning (or shame in losing)."

12.1

Rampaul to Buttler, 1 run, pitched up on the stumps, dug out down towards long-on

12.2

Rampaul to Hales, SIX, drops a little short and Hales belabours a flat six over midwicket this time! Standing tall, swatting across the line and sends is whistling into the stands

12.3

Rampaul to Hales, 1 run, Hales makes room and Rampaul follows the batsman again, right in the blockhole, rolls short on the leg side

12.4

Rampaul to Buttler, 1 run, goes back and slaps a shortish ball through point for a single

12.5

Rampaul to Hales, 1 run, nearly down the throat of fine leg... but it's just short! Hales pulled flat and hard again, good diving effort from Smith, manages to prevent it going past him, too

12.6

Rampaul to Buttler, SIX, full on the stumps ... and it's sent back with interest into the crowd at long-on! Towering six from Buttler, looked like he had mishit it but it soared beyond the boundary

End of over 13 (16 runs) England 98/3 (RR: 7.53)

    • JC Buttler 44 (27b 4x4 2x6)
    • AD Hales 38 (33b 1x4 2x6)
    • R Rampaul 3-0-30-0
    • DJG Sammy 1-0-17-0

Sammy off after just one over, Dwayne Bravo to purvey a similar brand of dobbly medium pace

13.1

Bravo to Hales, 1 run, nearly a mix up, chopped behind square but straight to the fielder and Hales would have been out with a direct hit!

13.2

Bravo to Buttler, 1 run, comes forward to a slower ball, taps one into the covers

That's the 100 up, to polite applause. These two have done an excellent rebuilding job

13.3

Bravo to Hales, 1 run, pitched up, quicker and straighter, pinged through cover for one more

13.4

Bravo to Buttler, 1 run, Buttler top-edges hiiiiiigh into the sky... but Bravo drops it at cover! Another slower ball, I think, almighty swing across the line from Buttler, given a life by the bowler

13.5

Bravo to Hales, OUT, scooped off his pads, not enough pace to clear the boundary fielder, who takes a dolly! Bravo does get a wicket, though it is arguably the less dangerous of the two... slightly scratchy 40 from Hales but he did well to hang in and drag England back into some sort of contention

AD Hales c Simmons b Bravo 40 (59m 36b 1x4 2x6) SR: 111.11

Ravi Bopara is out in the middle, England's killer Bs at the crease... Buttler on strike, as they crossed

13.6

Bravo to Buttler, 2 runs, another slower ball, fifth out of six, Buttler dabs into a gap in the covers and they run well for a second

"Rebuilding means something so different in the context of T20," says the excellently named Rahul Oak. "In ODIs it would've meant batten down the hatches for 10 overs and try and score at 3-4 rpo. In T20, it means have a couple of run-a-ball overs and then steadily score at 8 rpo for the next few without losing a wicket."

End of over 14 (6 runs) England 104/4 (RR: 7.42)

    • JC Buttler 48 (30b 4x4 2x6)
    • RS Bopara 0 (0b)
    • DJ Bravo 1-0-6-1
    • R Rampaul 3-0-30-0

Another bowler into the mix, Andre Russell to switch up his pace

14.1

Russell to Bopara, 1 run, slightly short of a length outside off, Bopara guides to backward point, who misfields to ensure they get an easy one

14.2

Russell to Buttler, 1 run, full length, right up in the blockhole, Buttler gets his bat down on it and squeezes the ball back past Russell, despite a commendable dive in his follow through

14.3

Russell to Bopara, 1 run, fullish, tailing in from outside off, pushed through the covers for one more

Here we go again, after a 45-minute break... How loose will Jos Buttler's arms be feeling, I wonder?

3.45pm: Play will restart at 3.55pm, no overs lost. Okay, well, sort of: West Indies have 16 minutes to bowl the final 5.3 overs. So we may well need to consult D/L after all.

"Would it be too controversial to suggest that for 2 weeks at the World T20 you took a couple of DVD's of classic Test matches, just so you don't forget what real cricket is?" Oh, Ben, you churl... but, yes, YouTube will doubtless be consulted.

3.40pm: The covers are off (I think). Yes, they're mopping up, reckon we should be able to get the full overs in if we get back on in the next 15-20 minutes...

"Well the reason why English players didn't got sold in IPL was they have a tour with Sri Lanka at that time ....that's why we saw many a Sri Lankan players also going unsold in auctions." Fair point, anmol.

"In Chittagong! go to Dhaba and eat its famous 'dahi phuchka'. Delicious." Thanks for the tip, NK.

3.30pm: Still a bit of drizzle around, not sure how much time we have to play with until overs disappear - going to be more than a half-hour break now, I think.

"Answer to Gaurav's question: English don't play spin well specially in shorter format. As simple as that." Nitin Chaudhary is obviously a man who has seen England play at least once in the last couple of years.

Thanks for the suggestion, Abdur, though I'm not sure my feeble journalist's arms and delicate typing fingers will be up to it: "Being in rickshaw dominant areas, you can think of pulling a hand rickshaw while in Chittagong."

3.20pm: It is still raining at the ground but has apparently got lighter... So, yes, feel free to send in your back-of-a-napkin advice for my fortnight in Chittagong.

Here's Gaurav with just the sort of irrelevance we're looking for: "Don't want to bring any irrelevance here. But, I still don't understand why IPL teams did not but Hales, Luke Wright, Jos Buttler, Broad etc. in the auction. I hope we get to see some Englishmen playing IPL. It will be fascinating to see such guys playing IPL. Being an Indian, I know crowd will definitely love players from England." Don't think Buttler entered the auction, Gaurav, but there was certainly some hope here that one or two would get picked up.

3.10pm: We're being held up by a rain delay, though potentially only a short one. The square is currently covered by a blue tarpaulin.

And all of a sudden, one of the dark clouds lurking above Bridgetown disgorges a few drops of rain - off go the players, on come the covers. We can still see blue sky on one side of the ground, so hopefully this will blow over sharpish.

14.4

Russell to Buttler, no run, full length and curling away a touch as Buttler swings and misses outside off

14.5

Russell to Buttler, 1 run, pitched up, around off stump, chops down on it and tickles one towards mid-on... That's fifty for Buttler, his second in T20 internationals

14.6

Russell to Bopara, 1 run, slightly full, on middle stump, driven towards long-on, who comes in and keeps them to one

End of over 15 (5 runs) England 109/4 (RR: 7.26)

    • JC Buttler 50 (33b 4x4 2x6)

Russell to Buttler, no run, quick, full and slightly wide, Buttler looses his footing as he slams the ball to the cover fielder

17.5

Bravo to Buttler, 2 runs, outside off, Buttler steps away and swipes a couple towards deep extra cover

17.6

Bravo to Buttler, SIX, in the slot, another slower ball from Bravo and this one it picked, plucked and packed off for six! Buttler heaves his third maximum over long-on, pepping up what had been a quiet over

"I strongly feel that WI need to find a place Santokie in the playing XI. I have watched this guy bowl in CCL and he is a very smart bowler. And also Sammy & Bravo should not be bowling when big guns are in the middle." Bravo has been doing all right, Raj Chandra... apart from that last ball

End of over 18 (11 runs) England 136/4 (RR: 7.55)

    • JC Buttler 67 (42b 5x4 3x6)
    • RS Bopara 13 (12b 1x4)
    • DJ Bravo 3-0-25-1
    • AD Russell 2-0-13-0

Krishmar Santokie has one over left and he's called on to bowl it in place of Russell

18.1

Santokie to Bopara, 1 run, angled across from over the wicket, goes back and runs a single to third man

18.2

Santokie to Buttler, OUT, swings hard, aiming down the ground... but a sliced top edge finds Sammy going back at backward point to take the catch! A cutter from Santokie, just held up and Buttler was through the shot early. That's the man they wanted

JC Buttler c Sammy b Santokie 67 (60m 43b 5x4 3x6) SR: 155.81

18.3

Santokie to Bopara, 1 bye, drops short and Bopara rather misses out trying to pull, the ball deflecting off his body

Luke Wright is in his new station at No. 7

18.4

Santokie to Wright, FOUR, clears the front foot and smites a half volley straight down the ground for a boundary first ball. Out of nick? Not a bit of it

18.5

Santokie to Wright, 1 run, comes forward and steers one through the covers

18.6

Santokie to Bopara, OUT, now Bopara frees the arms, can't clear long-off - Santokie has another! Bit of a miscue, didn't hit cleanly through the line and picked out the fielder

RS Bopara c Bravo b Santokie 14 (23m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 93.33

End of over 19 (7 runs) England 143/6 (RR: 7.52)

    • LJ Wright 5 (2b 1x4)
    • K Santokie 4-0-21-4
    • DJ Bravo 3-0-25-1

It will be Bravo to bowl the final over. Tim Bresnan has joined Wright in the middle

19.1

Bravo to Wright, 1 run, pitched up and dug out down the ground for a single

19.2

Bravo to Bresnan, SIX, that's why he's not been bowling length... Bresnan opens his shoulders and clouts a flat six over long-on. Brings up the 150, England could do with a couple more of those

19.3

Bravo to Bresnan, 1 run, full and straight this time, punches back, in the air and Bravo gets a fingertip on it, tough to call it a chance

19.4

Bravo to Wright, no run, dot ball, Wright duped by a slower ball, nearly swings himself off his feet as it loops through outside off

19.5

Bravo to Wright, 1 run, backs away and clunks a cut through point

19.6

Bravo to Bresnan, OUT, quick and slightly full, Bresnan goes hard, trying to hit down the ground, and nicks off! Bravo gets his second wicket off the final ball, roars out his approval. West Indies will have to chase 153 for the series

TT Bresnan c †Ramdin b Bravo 7 (5m 3b 0x4 1x6) SR: 233.33

4.20pm: England will be reasonably happy they have something to bowl at, after being 26 for 3, but West Indies did well to keep a lid on things at the end. That rain break might have done them a favour. Jos Buttler played very well for 67, mixing power, invention and good running, his stand with Alex Hales provided some desperately needed backbone to the innings. Gnasher will be here in a jiffy to call the run chase

End of over 20 (9 runs) England 152/7

    • LJ Wright 7 (5b 1x4)
    • DJ Bravo 4-0-34-2
    • K Santokie 4-0-21-4
