    13.4 gone this time! Charles attempts to repeat the stroke, but this one comes off the toe end and is safely pouched by Finn running in from long on 97/3
    5.6 gone! What a ripper, and there's the breakthrough. This turns from middle stump, beats the edge and takes off. Perfect for a left-armer. 51/1
    8.6 lovely bowling, the 'classic' offspinners wicket as it turns back between the gate of Samuels attempt at a booming drive 62/2
    17.3 gone! Well, Bopara is really turning it on with the ball. This was a seam up quicker one, and it swung in sharply to beat Hyatt's swishing blade and disturb the timber 112/7
    15.2 Bopara strikes! He zipped this one in much quicker, the ball swung in sharply even as Bonner backed away slightly to the leg side, taking an inside edge and ricocheting off the pad and into the stumps 104/4
    15.3 great catch! Bopara is on a hat-trick thanks to a superb diving catch from Kieswetter. The keeper had gone back for the new batsman. Bopara sent down a quick delivery on a length, catching the edge off a leaden-footed Barnwell 104/5
    17.2 run out! England strike again. Hyatt cleared the left leg and slapped one down the ground, but Stokes was in from long-on in a flash and as Russell hustled for the second he fired a sharp throw to Bopara at the non-striker's end. The stumps were disturbed in a flash with the batsman short of his ground. Good throw 112/6
    18.2 clatter! Dernbach steams in and fires down an unplayable, searing yorker to send Christian on his way. England are surging now, they're well on top 116/8
    19.4 gone! Sammy tried to mow a length delivery over midwicket, but got right underneath it and Bairstow was waiting for the chance after running in from the boundary 125/10
    18.3 there goes another one. Wow, England have been utterly flawless in the field this evening. Bishoo tapped one to gully and wandered down the track, but Buttler swooped and threw down the stumps correctly even as the batsman was searching for a single. Bishoo didn't even try to get back, he was stranded 117/9

Match Notes

  • Swann and Bopara star in stand-in roles

    Graeme Swann's first match as England captain could not, statistically, have gone any better, as England rampaged to their first ten-wicket victory in the Twenty20 format

  • Swann steps up to leadership role

    At 5.45pm on Friday, when Graeme Swann walks out to toss up with his West Indian counterpart, Darren Sammy, the end of one of the more improbable journeys in English cricket will have been reached

  • Bopara stars as England cruise to victory

    Graeme Swann performed his first duty as England captain with aplomb, and chose to bowl first after winning the toss ahead of the first Twenty20 against West Indies at The Oval

  • Stanford's absence a loss to West Indies - Roberts

    Andy Roberts and Curtly Ambrose, the two greatest fast bowlers to emerge from Antigua, believe that the demise of Allen Stanford's cricket empire in the Caribbean has left an irreplaceable void in their own home country
