West Indies win by 27 runs. A very solid all-round performance from the home side. Out-batted, out-bowled and out-fielded England. Spin, once again, provided a load of headaches for the visitors. Marlon Samuels and Samuel Badree very good for West Indies, although there is a fitness question over Sunil Narine. Stuart Broad appeared to limp, too, during his innings. This is England's four T20 loss in a row. I'll hang around to bring you the presentation shortly.

Good spot from Anshul: "After his catch dropped, Samuels scored 26 runs and WI have won by 27 runs."

Stuart Broad "A lot of the seam bowler's economy were higher; last time played here it wasn't like that. We'll have to take that into consideration for the next game. We didn't get going today, but that can happen in T20 when you a chasing a good score. I've got a touch of patellar tendonitis and may not play the next two games to get ready for the World T20.

Marlon Samuels "I've been working hard, it was a wonderful crowd so I had to come out and play. They loved Carl Hooper and I came out to play in his style. It worked out well for us as we have some wonderful spinners."

Darren Sammy "That's what we asked for and in front of a full house we played a good game. The start from Smith and Gayle allowed Samuels to play himself in. [On Narine] He's being looked after, so fingers crossed everything is alright."

That wraps things up for today. We'll be back on Tuesday for the second match of the series. For now, from Andrew McGlashan and Alan Gardner, it's goodbye.
