    7.2 Gayle shimmies in the crease, full and straight, a slower ball from Curran, chipped down the ground - and Plunkett holds a blinder! First ODI wicket for Curran and it's the Big One, really canny bowling, Gayle losing control as he looked to clear the ropes again, back-of-the-hand delivery and Plunkett sprinted back from mid-off to hold it diving full length 52/1
    14.4 pitched up, KHope drives, pops off the face... and Plunkett takes another fabulous grab, one-handed and low to his left! A breakthrough out of nowhere and West Indies have lost Hope for the penultimate time on this tour! Mistimed drive but it still went quickly, only for the big man to stoop and conquer 86/2
    43.5 length outside off, Hope carves over the off side... but this one sails straight to the man on the boundary! Billings steadies himself and holds on above his head and Ball finally gets some reward for his flogging. Fine innings from Hope but he goes tying to lift the scoring 221/5
    31.3 down the pitch and gone! The pressure tells, Samuels knew he had to get cracking, he advances down the pitch, the ball slides on rather than spins, beats the outside edge and a regulation stumping 143/3
    39.5 steps out, tries to hit down the ground... but it's not got the elevation and Root takes a running catch wide of long-off! Mohammed punches his bat in frustration, maybe got done in the flight and the shot skewed short of the rope 195/4
    not out
    47.3 bowled him with a full toss, off stump smashed on its back! Plunkett roars, the ultimate comeback... big ole swing from Powell but he fails to connect and hears the crack of doom behind him 253/6
    not out
