7.34pm So, that's a wrap from Barbados. We're off to Grenada for a pivotal third ODI on Monday, with England a touch chastened after another rousing performance from West Indies' resurgent outfit. It's been a thrilling evening. Sheldon Cottrell, we salute you! Goodnight!

Jason Holder: "Really pleased, credit to Hetty, he set it up on a sticky wicket, and credit for the way we defended it, led by Sheldon Cottrell. When I came back I knew we needed a wicket, I got two in the over and had England under pressure. You need options in this day and age, Cottrell added variation, I love his energy, he's one for the future. And it's good to see the young players stepping up."

Shimron Hetmyer is Man of the Match "We just tried to pick up the slack and get a partnership going. I was thinking about opening up both sides of the ground, looking to pick up singles. I'm trying to learn some new things, trying not to be one-dimensional, open up both sides of the field, and execute from there."

Here's Morgan "A game is never won until right at the end. Two games into the series I felt we made a lot of improvements and we thought 290 was well without our capabilities. We made mistakes and it hurt us, and West Indies deserved to win."

"My first time facing Cottrell, hopefully we can face him a lot more and play him better. Collectively we need to chase a total like that in partnerships, but we failed to nail it down."

7.22pm Deepak Samson: "The English middle order is strong...no doubt...but to win matches the stability that Root brings to the table is vital. England need Joe to click on a reasonably regular basis to have a shot at the silverware in the summer..." Probably true, certainly on livelier decks. But it was a cracking game either way

Om Pashupati: "It's good to see some underdogs picking up right before the World Cup - first SL in SA and now WI. Hope they are not picking up a bit too early !"

7.16pm Joy unconfined for West Indies ... they looked down and out as England paced their chase well up until the final ten overs. But the loss of Ben Stokes to a rashly-timed review changed the nature of their innings. Their last six wickets tumbled for 35 in 7.5 overs, with Sheldon Cottrell starring with 5 for 46, his career-best figures.

Narayanan: "Now I understand why Stokes threw his pads."

Alok Ranjan: "It's 4:40 morning here in India and trust me I have not slept just because of this match Gee what a day it has been for cricket SA vs SL ,1st match PSL last ball six ,2nd match Hattrick in last over and now when chances were looking Not great for WI ...They are pretty on the brink of winning this..Long Live Cricket,Cheers" It's not a bad game, is it?

Brathwaite to Plunkett, OUT, slapped to long off, and Holder swallows the winning catch! No repeat of his Trent Bridge 2016 heroics from Plunkett, but he was looking for a similar go-to stroke, an up-and-over wallop on a full length. But the skipper is back on the rope, and seals a thrilling comeback win!

Cottrell to Ali, OUT, round his legs, and Cottrell has five! This is magnificent bowling, but an unlucky way to go ... clips the inside of the thigh pad, a la Keaton Jennings in the Tests, and deflects back into the leg stump! But there's no stopping Cottrell now. He ain't no Private Pile!

Cottrell to Rashid, OUT, got him! Cottrell is winning this match single-handedly! Back of a length again, Rashid looks to nurdle, opens the face, but can't get the angle to beat the keeper. Out comes the salute for his career-best figures... and England are looking down the barrel now
