Samuel Badree411624.00142000
0.2 to JJ Roy, no need for the ump there! The slider goes straight through Roy. What a start for West Indies, and yet Badree barely celebrates. He just walks in to collect the applause like a boss. Another straighter one, pitches on middle, zips through to take leg. Roy was a bit too slow on it again, and played down the wrong line too.. 0/1
4.4 to EJG Morgan, the googly! This time it takes the outside edge and Gayle is there to gobble it up. It seems he hadn't picked this one either, judging from the way he had tried to close the bat face and was hoping to work a straight ball around the corner. The outside edge of doom!. 23/3
Andre Russell402115.25122000
1.5 to AD Hales, he's picked out short fine leg! The only man there! Russell cannot believe it. Hales is livid with himself. This was a half-tracker, down the leg side, begging to be tonked and he simply helped it into the hands of Badree. A few yards either side, or even a little more height on that and England would have had the boundary they wanted to settle nerves. 8/2
Sulieman Benn3040013.3333300
Dwayne Bravo403739.2582200
13.4 to BA Stokes, oh, what happened there?! Whatever did, Bravo and Gayle are 'champion'ing it together. It was perhaps the slower ball bouncer, Stokes was set up for the pull and then realised he would be beaten for pace. Decides to bail out of the shot, except the ball followed his moving away down leg. Leaps off the open face and ends up in point's hands. Dolly of a catch. 110/5
13.6 to MM Ali, strangled down leg! It's the slower ball again and Bravo's done the star turn for West Indies. Poor Root can only watch from the other end as the shortish delivery is gloved to the wicketkeeper. Out comes the champion dance again, this time Sammy and Bravo are doing it together as the team crowds around them. 110/6
18.3 to LE Plunkett, he's taken the catch, but it seems like he has hurt his shoulder coming down to hit the turf. Badree was the man tracking down a cue-ender as Plunkett swung wildly. Moved to his right, dives full length, takes it in both hands, but he lands on his right wrist, even a bit of the shoulder. That could be dangerous, Badree's finished his quota today though. 142/9
Carlos Brathwaite402335.7581010
11.2 to JC Buttler, DJ's pumped up! Not sure his words are for the public, but he has taken a fine catch on the midwicket boundary. It was a back of a length ball that Buttler had picked up right off the middle. Crash, came the sound and the ball hurtled away flat. Right into the hands of the fielder. 84/4
14.1 to JE Root, big Benn comes down and how! And Root's walking off with a volley at someone. He premeditated a scoop shot, moving outside off, so Brathwaite slowed it up and shortened the length. The batsman was left reaching for the ball up over his face, and without pace, he simply guides it to Benn at short fine leg. 111/7
17.3 to DJ Willey, he misjudged it at first, but Charles rushes forward and dives as far as he could to pick up the catch! Willey found a short ball and wanted to send it out of the park. But he was perhaps beaten for lack of pace. Hits him high on the bat and therefore ruins his timing. 136/8

David Willey402035.00131020
2.3 to LMP Simmons, straightening, struck on the pads in front of leg stump - given! Yoinks, this is a sensational start from England! Was that a touch high? Rod Tucker didn't think so and Simmons is gone for a golden duck! Pitched in line with middle and leg, hurtled on to hit the pads - and Hawk-Eye has it hitting the top of the stumps! England are cock-a-hoop (and that's not a Willey pun). 11/3
15.1 to AD Russell, dug in short, Russell pirouettes on the spot - but sends a pull straight into the hands of Stokes on the deep midwicket boundary! Willey pulls out a pair of imaginary pistols and starts shooting off bottle tops... He was trying to clear the boundary on the longest side of the ground, middled the shot but found Stokes running in to stoop and conquer. 104/5
15.3 to DJG Sammy, goes for the big shot - AND HOLES OUT TO DEEP COVER! Sammy keeps up his Invisible Man routine, and you have to say that was not a sensible shot, only his third ball, a man standing out there, and he's picked him out. England are not letting go here. 107/6
Joe Root10929.0032000
1.1 to J Charles, round the wicket, dollied on the stumps.... and he skies a catch to mid-on! Stokes settled safely under it and England's funky cricket brings them an early reward. Huge yahoo from Charles, who's not subtle at the best of times, straight up and down and he's back in the hutch for spit. 1/1
1.3 to CH Gayle, slogged into the sky - straight to long-off! Root has two in the over, and CHRIS GAYLE IS OUT! He's gone one better than Kohli already, Gayle was looking to bludgeon the ball into the stands over long-off, as he has done so many times to so many offspinners, but he got slightly under it, sliced towards "Safe Hands" Stokes running round to his right... and he's mobbed by his team-mates! Root is bellowing in celebration, England have landed a huge blow in this final. 5/2
Chris Jordan403609.0055010
Liam Plunkett402907.25122210
Adil Rashid402315.7560100
13.6 to DJ Bravo, pushed through a touch quicker, Bravo swivels and attempts to plant Rashid in the stands again... but instead the top edge plops into the hands of backward point! Rashid strikes with his final ball, but it's probably not the man England wanted. 86/4
