    12.6 there he goes! Takes on the short ball, but it's a long old boundary, even for Gayle! Bairstow has a long, long time to consider his life choices as the ball plops into his hands, and that is a very, very big wicket... 54/2
    2.6 yorker! That is tremendous bowling from Woakes, just slipping in the fuller ball, rattling through Lewis's defences as his weight toppled forward in anticipation of another drive. No issue with the zing bails on that occasion, England are up and running! 4/1
    13.2 massive appeal! Wood thinks that's stone-dead! No response from umpire Dharmasena, but England review. It was angling in on a very full length. If there was no inside edge that's going to be close. Hope was playing round his front pad, and yep, that is smashing leg stump! A fine review from England and a sudden flurry of wickets. Hope's torturous innings is ended, just when he might have been getting settled. 55/3
    39.4 short and sharp! Is there any glove on this as Pooran withdraws his bat late? England reckon so, and are reviewing! Buttler is in temporary chance and makes the call ...and it's the correct call! A clear spike on Snicko, and England have the big one! The angle into the left-hander was key, as the ball kept chasing Pooran as it climbed off the deck 202/7
    29.5 there's the breakthrough! Joe Root was brought on for this express purpose, and he plucks the return catch as Hetmyer miscues a simple drive down the ground. The ball may have gripped a bit, but it just popped straight back up towards the non-striker, and Root gleefully accepts this, and celebrates like Botham did with his little jig in 1992. The partnership comes to an end 11 short of getting to three figures! 144/4
    31.6 two for Root! Stops on Holder this time, and he was looking for turn on this one. Didn't turn at all, in fact Root may have bowled this seam-up, and it pops back up for Root. He's the top wicket-taker in this innings already 156/5
    36.2 banged in short, Russell takes the bait, Woakes takes the catch! It was travelling, but straight to the man at deep midwicket, and the culpable fielder a few moments ago shows good ticker to swallow the second opportunity 188/6
    43.4 swished once more, a clear noise, and Buttler gathers! Brathwaite is crestfallen, that's come off his arm not the bat, but he has no review left and has to walk! ... EDIT: There was a thin edge before the arm, so justice has been done either way! 211/9
    39.5 walks across the stumps, and Archer is on a hat-trick! Cottrell reviews, as well he might. It was angling towards the leg side, and umpire Dharmasena took an age to decide... but that is smashing leg, and the wicket stands! 202/8
    not out
    44.4 inswinging yorker, and that is the end of that! Knocks back the middle stump as Gabriel flashes at thin air, and that is Wood's 50th ODI wicket, and the end of a superb day's work from England's quicks 212/10
