England won by 45 runs
  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JJ Roy lbw b Gabriel 13 27 22 2 0 59.09
5.3 91.5 mph, gone, pinned in front! Gabriel strikes, the ball stayed low and Roy looks a bit miffed... but that's a straightforward decision for the umpire to make, would have clattered into middle and off. Reward for the dangerous Gabriel 23/1
View dismissal SW Billings c CR Brathwaite b Nurse 52 96 56 7 0 92.85
21.3 54.9 mph, a firm clip, and a good sharp catch low at short midwicket! A bit of a giveaway stroke, timed the pants off it, but tried to hit his way straight through the fielder. That's a vital scalp 96/3
View dismissal JE Root b Gabriel 4 9 5 0 0 80.00
7.2 89.5 mph, bowled him, stumps akimbo! Gabriel goes straight through Root, maybe low bounce again but that was quick, it hit the seam and hurtled back to kersplat the stumps with Root stuck in the crease... That's a big blow, England rocking, Gabriel rolling 29/2
View dismissal EJG Morgan* run out (CR Brathwaite) 107 179 116 11 2 92.24
49.3 CR Brathwaite to Ali, chopped into the ground, Brathwaite fields in his follow through... and Morgan is stranded, the bowler throwing down the stumps to run out England's centurion! 292/6
View dismissal JC Buttler c Carter b Nurse 14 15 19 0 0 73.68
25.6 53.4 mph, edged, and that's a brilliant snaffle at slip from Carter! Genuine turn from a good length, Buttler was drawn into the stroke, and Carter pounced low in one hand to claim a crucial scalp! 129/4
View dismissal BA Stokes c Holder b Bishoo 55 81 61 0 3 90.16
44.4 49.8 mph, flighted, Stokes goes downtown... but drills it to the man on the boundary at long-on! Stokes is stubbed out for a useful fifty rather than a clear-the-bleachers hundred, he was looking to hit Bishoo out of the park but couldn't quite get under it. Still, a handy knock 239/5

  JN Mohammed 5 0 25 0 5.00 14 1 1
  West Indies innings (target: 297 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal KC Brathwaite c Rashid b Woakes 14 49 26 1 0 53.84
11.4 85.3 mph, that's a woeful waft, and Windies are three-down! Back of a length, Brathwaite sized up the pull but never committed to the stroke. A toe-ended gimme to Rashid, who gathers with a tumble at mid-on. Now they are in the mire 39/3
View dismissal E Lewis c Billings b Woakes 21 37 33 2 0 63.63
9.2 68.9 mph, short, and that's a sucker punch! Lewis could have picked any spot on the ground as Woakes banged in a half-tracker, but Billings is lurking on the midwicket fence, and there's the breakthrough! 36/1
View dismissal KOA Powell c Roy b Plunkett 1 6 5 0 0 20.00
10.2 82.8 mph, lifter on off stump, and Kieron Powell's Windies return is short-lived! Powell looked as though he was trying to work it to leg, but ended up outside-edging a simple chance to point 37/2
View dismissal SD Hope c Finn b Rashid 31 54 38 2 0 81.57
24.3 58.3 mph, short and wide, ugly slash, top edge... and Hope's gone! Finn utilised all of his 6ft 6ins, diving forward at backward point to scoop up a catch and break an encouraging stand. Not a great shot from Hope, the ball was there to be hit but he rather butchered it, straight off the top edge. Maybe didn't pick the googly 108/4
View dismissal JN Mohammed run out (Finn) 72 122 91 7 0 79.12
41.6 Finn to CR Brathwaite, on the back foot, and that is some nifty footwork from the galumphing Finn! Tapped down into the crease, Brathwaite looks round to see where's it's gone and is called through, and it's a race between the big men... Finn wins it with a side-foot into the bottom right corner, and Mohammed is an inch short! Finn wheels away and gives it the full Alan Shearer, one arm in the air. That's bought him early selection for Sunday's footie warm-up 210/7
View dismissal JL Carter c Roy b Plunkett 52 54 47 4 2 110.63
38.2 79.1 mph, that is a stunning catch! Carter takes on the pull again, the ball gets caught in the wind, which both prevents it from reaching the boundary, but also from reaching the tumbling Jason Roy at deep square leg. Except... he flings himself headlong and scoops it millimetres from the turf! 190/5
View dismissal JO Holder* c †Buttler b Plunkett 4 12 7 0 0 57.14
40.2 86.7 mph, outside off, and there it is! Just a thin tickle as Holder looked to run a single to third man. Instead, it's guided through to the keeper 201/6
View dismissal CR Brathwaite c Root b Woakes 12 19 12 1 0 100.00
44.3 83.2 mph, slower ball, massive wind-up, a spiralling outside edge, Root calls early on the edge of the circle and pouches what could be the killer catch! 224/8
View dismissal AR Nurse lbw b Woakes 21 21 15 0 2 140.00
46.3 86.5 mph, great riposte! Wider on the crease, a much fuller length, and pinned plumb in front! A long pause for thought from the umpire, and rightly, West Indies use the review, but hard to see how he'll be saved here... the angle was a touch deceptive, to be fair, but it is clipping leg, and off he goes 250/9
D Bishoo not out 12 15 6 2 0 200.00
View dismissal ST Gabriel c †Buttler b Plunkett 0 6 4 0 0 0.00
47.2 85.4 mph, short, pulled, lobs to the keeper, and that's the end of that! No reviews left, so Gabriel has no second opinion, so it is England who draw first blood in this best-of-three rubber! 251/10
