England win by 5 runs. What a finish. Darren Sammy manges a smile. West Indies take the series 2-1. Important moment for Jade Dernbach, too. Chris Jordan had a superb match, with bat, ball and in the field. Just a few balls in his last over gave West Indies a chance. But England held on. Excuse me, folks, while I put out the fire on my keyboard. I'll be back with you for the presentations shortly.

Darren Sammy "We didn't get across the line but it was a good game. I think the fans were entertained. We'd have had a chance if I hadn't got bat on that last ball. But today Dernbach was better than me. It was a great effort by the bowlers, the way we fought back in the last 10 overs was really good."

Man of the Match is Chris Jordan "It was a good chance I got today, just glad I could take it. I just wanted to get into the game, I did that with the bat. All I can do is when I put on an England shirt is do the best I can."

Eoin Morgan "Fantastic game, outstanding performance from Chris. The two Notts boys were brilliant, especially Michael. We were a bit stop-start but Chris at the end was brilliant. It was difficult to get yourself in. There are a lot of positives today. I thought the guys held their nerve really well."

That just about wrap things up from this series and tour. Both teams now head to Bangladesh, via London, and we'll see them there shortly. For now, though, from Andrew McGlashan it's goodbye.

19.6
Dernbach to Sammy, no run

that would have been a wide, too! But Sammy gets bat on it! Even wider outside off than the last delivery. The ball dribbles to short third-man and England have won.

Six off one to win now.

1w
Dernbach to Sammy, 1 wide

it's a wide! Would you believe it. Outside off, Sammy flashed. Buttler clapped. Then the umpire stretched is arms out. Tight call on first glance

Seven off one needed. Six for a tie. Wides an issue.

19.5
Dernbach to Sammy, no run

oh, what a time to send down a slower ball. It's full outside off, Sammy is early and can't reach it

Morgan tries to slow things down. Thanks Eoin, I need a breather. Seven needed off two balls.

Sammy asking about the height of that short ball. Told to get on with it.

Dernbach to Sammy, SIX runs

nailed it! Flat six. Sammy is pumped. Was another bouncer from Dernbach and he creamed it over deep square-leg

19.3
W
Dernbach to Sammy, 1 run, OUT

chaos! It's all going off. Where do I start?! It was a superb bounce, first up, from Dernbach which hits Sammy in the chest. He sets off for a run, Dernbach chases from cover then throws at the non-striker's stumps with no one there. They try to steal an overthrow, but the return comes in and Morgan is at the stumps this time.

Lendl Simmons run out (Ali/Dernbach) 69 (55b 7x4 2x6 80m) SR: 125.45

Sammy on strike...14 off 4 needed. That's three hits for DJG. England hold a mini-conference.

19.2

Dernbach to Simmons, 1 run

full, outside leg, slower ball, slugs a single to deep midwicket

19.1
2
Dernbach to Simmons, 2 runs

over the off side! Short of a length, sliced over cover but long-off is able to get around

Final over. Dernbach. 17 needed. A tie is a Super Over. Why, in a bilateral series, I don't really understand. But anyway.

Punch of the gloves from the batsmen. This is on for West Indies.

Jordan to Sammy, FOUR runs

short on the hip, beats fine leg! The Barbados crowd are jumping. What noise. Sammy just helped this delivery away with a roll of the wrists, the placement was ideal

Another massive ball

18.6
1w
Jordan to Sammy, 1 wide

bouncer over leg stump, called wide! England can't believe that. Fair call from square leg umpire. Was over Sammy's head in his normal stance.

Massive ball now, so to speak

18.5
4
Jordan to Sammy, FOUR runs

first ball! Four to third man. Short of a length outside, gets over the top of the ball and back-cuts fine of short third man

So Sammy gets to the crease with eight balls left. He's already at the pitch. He almost ran in. Hold on to your hats, folks

18.4
W
Jordan to Ramdin, OUT

leg stump! Jordan, who else? Holds his nerve, it wasn't actually the yorker this time. A length delivery, perhaps held back a touch, Ramdin swings across the line and misses

Denesh Ramdin b Jordan 33 (21b 4x4 1x6 33m) SR: 157.14
18.3

Jordan to Ramdin, FOUR runs

inside edge! It was almost the perfect yorker. Such are the margins. It took the edge and flew past the keeper

18.2
1
Jordan to Simmons, 1 run

low full toss, clubbed down the ground one bounce to long-on...good start to the over for Jordan

18.1
1
Jordan to Ramdin, 1 run

well bowled, straight yorker, drilled to long-on

Twelve balls. 32 runs. 3-0 or 2-1. Jordan to bowl, so Dernbach for the last by looks of things. Sammy looks desperate to be at the crease. If there ever case for a tactical 'retire' from a batsman in T20? They are still setting the field, by the way...three men from short third-man to point

Bopara to Simmons, 1 bye

angled into the body, he misses out on the pull and it doesn't connect with anything

17.4
Bopara to Simmons, no run

slash and miss! Precious dot ball. Aiming to cut. Good take from Buttler

17.3
1
Bopara to Ramdin, 1 run

short again, leg side again, this time not off the middle as he finds long-on

Bopara asks the captain to move

17.2

Bopara to Ramdin, FOUR runs

finds the gap! Short delivery, pulled away and it just evades Morgan who ran around and dived from deep midwicket

17.1
1
Bopara to Simmons, 1 run

short of a length, cut in the air through point and Jordan does well to keep them to a single from deep cover although the running wasn't great
