Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Evin Lewis, 1.3 ov), 2-9 (Lendl Simmons, 2.2 ov), 3-27 (Shimron Hetmyer, 4.4 ov), 4-31 (Chris Gayle, 5.6 ov), 5-37 (Dwayne Bravo, 7.2 ov), 6-42 (Nicholas Pooran, 8.5 ov), 7-44 (Andre Russell, 10.1 ov), 8-49 (Kieron Pollard, 12.1 ov), 9-49 (Obed McCoy, 12.2 ov), 10-55 (Ravi Rampaul, 14.2 ov)
2.2 to LMP Simmons, down the track now to the flighted ball on off stump, and he picks out the fielder in the deep! Looks to hit with the turn, and he connects well, but he ends up hitting it straight to the man at deep midwicket, who takes it with both hands in front of his chest. 9/2
4.4 to SO Hetmyer, gone, picked the wrong length for that shot, and Moeen has two! Flat one sliding on with the arm into the stumps, and Hetmyer, opening up at the hip, is cramped for room on the pull. It isn't short enough either, and he ends up flat-batting it to Morgan at mid-on, stationed right on the edge of the 30-yard circle. 27/3
1.3 to E Lewis, oh wow, what a terrific catch that is! Moeen Ali, stunning. Turns around at mid-off, runs towards the boundary with the ball descending from over his right shoulder. Has to reach for the ball in the end, but he keeps his balance and takes it on the sprint. A change of pace from Woakes, bowled it fuller while angling it across the stumps, and it left Lewis like an offcutter and caused him to skew it high off the outside half of the bat while looking to go over the bowler's head. 8/1
5.6 to CH Gayle, England's catching has been outstanding today, and now it's Malan at midwicket, on the edge of the circle. He tracks to his right and then dives to take it with both nands reverse-cupped. Mills' extra pace does the trick here. Good short ball, getting up around Gayle's back shoulder, and he's late on the pull. Ends up hitting it much straighter than he probably intended, and off the high part of the bat, into the air. 31/4
8.5 to N Pooran, got him, West Indies are six down. Full outside off, inviting the big cover drive, and Pooran goes for it and nicks it through to Buttler. It just feels like a day when nothing will go their way. Snatched at that shot a little, but it was there to be driven in this format. 42/6
7.2 to DJ Bravo, everything's going England's way here. Jordan goes short and wide again, and Bravo unfurls another whirling cut, but this time he hits it straight to the man at backward point, at catching height. Wow. Replay shows it's just about catching height. Bends low to pick it up inches off the ground, with both hands. 37/5
10.1 to AD Russell, bowls him through the gate! Things get worse for West Indies, Russell gone second ball! Rashid into the attack and amongst 'em immediately - looks like a superbly executed slider, drifting in and then skidding on as Russell looked to defend. He left a gap and the ball snuck through, straight into middle stump. West Indies looking thoroughly rattled out there. 44/7
12.1 to KA Pollard, oh my, another one holes out! Polly wants a crack here but he's picked the wrong ball, and he sends it hard and flat into the grateful gullet of Bairstow at long-on! Rashid again strikes with the first delivery of his over, West Indies threatening to blow themselves out with plenty unbowled. 49/8
12.2 to OC McCoy, tossed up, and tossed away! Picks out long-on first ball! West Indies are swinging like a rusty gate, McCoy gone for a golden duck. Absolutely disastrous shot choice, with his team right in the mire. Rashid simply strolling up and accepting candy. 49/9
14.2 to R Rampaul, dirty heave and Rampaul is castled! West Indies have Wile E Coyote-d themselves into oblivion in their World Cup opener, bowled out for just 55 inside 15 overs! Rashid pockets his fourth with a legbreak that dips and spins to hit the woodwork as Rampaul swings like a barn door in a gale. England's spinner was held back until halfway but ends up with figures of FOUR for TWO. 55/10

Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Jason Roy, 3.1 ov), 2-30 (Jonny Bairstow, 4.1 ov), 3-36 (Moeen Ali, 5.2 ov), 4-39 (Liam Livingstone, 6.1 ov)
4.1 to JM Bairstow, jabbed back to the bowler! Angled in flat, no turn from the arm ball, Bairstow was looking to clip it for one and got a thickish inside edge - it almost didn't carry but Hosein got down well to take a low catch to his right. Is there a wobble in this chase after all?. 30/2
6.1 to LS Livingstone, Hosein takes a stunner! Leading edge from Livingstone, but it was travelling... only for Hosein to leap across and snag the ball one-handed to his left. There's some discussion between the umpires, Aleem Dar wants to be sure that Hosein didn't ground the ball as he came down - but the soft signal is out. Chris Brown, the TV umpire, is taking several looks at this, but he's eventually satisfied. Don't think you could prove his fingers weren't underneath the ball as he put his hand down. 39/4
3.1 to JJ Roy, flipped straight to midwicket! West Indies have the breakthrough... Just a touch of pace off from Rampaul, cutting his fingers down the side and Roy was through his flick early, could only pop a head-height catch to Gayle. 21/1
