West Indies romp to six-wicket win

England's bid to regain momentum after last week's Test series defeat hit the buffers as they were routed by six wickets with two overs to spare

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.

Khan to Bravo, 2 runs
chipped a foot over midwicket
17.3
Khan to Bravo, no run
smacked on the pads as he looks to flick the ball into the on side ... another loud appeal from Khan but the umpire having none of it and the crowd boo his affront for appealing
17.2
2
Khan to Bravo, 2 runs
neat clip past midwicket, Pietersen again helps earn his fee with a long chase round from deep square leg

Khan to Simmons, 1 run
heaved square on the leg side

1w
Khan to Simmons, 1 wide
banged in short outside off stump ... that was also about three feet above the batsman's head height and why Khan looks aggrieved only he knows

Anderson to Bravo, no run
keeps low, Bravo kills the ball
16.5
1
Anderson to Simmons, 1 run
sweetly clipped through midwicket, Bopara fires in a wild throw which deters the second run but causes Anderson to scurry to cut it off
16.4
Anderson to Simmons, no run
back and swatted to Pietersen at mid-off, he half stops but that's enough to prevent the single
16.3
Anderson to Simmons, no run
starts forward, then moves back and steers the ball to backward point
16.2
1lb
Anderson to Bravo, 1 leg bye
back and off his pads a few yards into the on side ... another relatively comfortable run
16.1
1
Anderson to Simmons, 1 run
turned off his pads behind square for an easy run

Anderson back for a final burst ... much too late to make a difference though.

4
Khan to Bravo, FOUR runs
neatly flicked off his pads behind square for four ... and the crowd erupt in acclamation
15.5
Khan to Bravo, no run
across his stumps and worked to mid-on, the throw from Mascarenhas hits the stumps and the batsmen momentarily thought of an overthrow
15.4
Khan to Bravo, no run
down the leg side, a sure-fire wide had it not clipped his pad, Davies takes it well diving to his left but the appeal for the catch was not seriously considered ... Khan looked bemused but he hadn't seen that Davies had dropped it anyhow!
15.3
Khan to Bravo, no run
beaten outside off stump, the ball passes the inside edge as he plays back

That's England's eighth wide ...

15.3
1w
Khan to Bravo, 1 wide
a fiery bouncer at 85mph, that caused Bravo to flinch and it's called a wide as it was heading down the leg side
