    10.4 forward on middle and leg, it loops up to where short leg might have been, Buttler runs from behind the stumps and dives forward to take the catch. England are convinced but not out is given, Broad reviews and the replay shows a huge inside edge and the decision is changed. There was a hint of grip that forced the inside edge and Buttler was out smartly to complete the dismissal, big wicket 38/2
    6.2 firm push from just outside off, in the air towards short extra-cover and Jordan dives to his right and takes a blinding catch that is an outstanding grab, an inch above the ground, fabulous reaction to get down so quickly and hold on, pressure does the trick for England 19/1
    11.4 full and straight and bowled him! Off stump knocked back and Edwards goes cheaply. Seemed to just play all around that really, the delivery didn't do much, shaped in a touch but Edwards aiming to leg missed and the ball came off his pad onto the off stump 40/3
    15.4 first wicket! Moeen strikes, given lbw propping forward on middle and leg. Bravo calls for the review. It was angling towards leg. Did it straighten enough? Looks pretty good, certainly to be clipping and it was out on the field. And it's hitting leg flush! Terrific moment for Moeen 45/4
    39.5 a step to leg and Simmons tries to clear the off side, gets a length ball, a slower ball, high off the bat and it loops to cover and Bresnan takes a big wicket. Simmons was going along nicely and probably didn't need to play that stroke, he's rather handed it away when well set, trying to force the pace, getting into a poor position to have a big swing and being done by a ball Bresnan dragged his fingers across 153/5
    not out
    49.6 low full toss outside off, a big swing is mistimed and chips it to Broad at cover so England at least end with a wicket but Sammy has played a very nice hand here 269/6

    36.6 there's the breakthrough! He advances down the pitch, it's a short of a length delivery, he drives to drive it over cover but can only pick out the fielder 180/3
    19.3 length ball on off stump and Moeen has chipped it to long-on. A rather unnecessary stroke really, I think he was trying to find the gap over midwicket but got it wrong, it carried very comfortably to the deep fielder 96/1
    22.1 back of a length and pulled straight to midwicket and that ends a not very impressive nine-ball stay where Wright didn't time one ball. He tried to pull this away but the delivery was on him too quickly and he got it high on the bat and straight to midwicket for the simplest of catches 106/2
    41.5 he's on a roll! Root goes for the sweep, the ball loops off the glove and gives the keeper a simple catch 205/5
    39.2 and another! Or so it seems. Narine appears to have bowled him as he went for the sweep. Stokes isn't sure, thinks it may have come off the keeper. We'll see in a moment as the umpires check. Yep, that's just clipped leg stump 192/4
    42.6 that really changes things! West Indies favourites now. Buttler trying to clear the off side, it was a slower ball, rolls his fingers across it, there's no timing in the shot and it lobs to mid-off 211/6

Match Notes

  • The joy of Cabbage

    In Antigua, a cheering spectator makes for more interesting photos than the action on the field

  • Lumb makes good on gifted opportunity

    At 34 years of age, Michael Lumb was England's oldest debutant in this format since Paul Nixon seven years ago. He could have been forgiven for thinking his chance had gone

  • Lumb hundred in vain as England collapse again

    Michael Lumb's hundred on ODI debut was not enough to earn England victory as their batting subsided after their bowling had earlier failed to contain West Indies' hitting

  • New Sirs complete Knights XI

    ESPNcricinfo presents the plays of the day from the first ODI in Antigua

  • Missing players hamper Giles' audition

    England will interview for a new head coach in April, and by then Ashley Giles could have cemented his position as favourite or be struggling to keep his head above water

Debut pair
