And that was a thoroughly deserved win for West Indies, they outplayed England in every department and while the scorecard shows they only won with 12 balls to spare, that doesn't reflect the manner of their victory.

England started well but fell apart, Benn and Sammy strangling the life out of the innings as the last nine wickets fell for 66 runs. West Indies also got off to a flier but kept going, and England gifted too many runs through extras and bad balls to give them any hope of pulling something out from the fire.

Check out Andrew Miller's bulletin and we're back on Friday for the first ODI from Georgetown, so join us then. For now, from Martin Williamson it's good evening.

Khan to Pollard, FOUR runs, and he does just that, short and pulled over midwicket and the batsmen hug even before the ball has reached the boundary

Kieron Pollard strides out to try to win it ...

Khan to Bravo, OUT, short, pulled square and Pietersen holds a low catch to his left

DJ Bravo c Pietersen b Khan 8 (11m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

One big hit from victory and Bravo would love to be the man to do that.
