Commentary (West Indies innings)

So, England continue to extend their lead in the series. It stands 2-0 in the hosts' favour with two more games to be played. The visitors would hope to put up a better show in the upcoming games. That's it from us in this game. Do join us for the next one which is at The Oval on Wednesday, 27th September, 2017 at 1230 local time (1130 GMT). Till then adios! Take care!

Man of the Match, MOEEN ALI says that it was nice to get himself in and play the shots later on. Reckons that he planned to let loose after getting a bit of balls under his belt. Mentions that he enjoys the responsibility lower down the order as it also gives him the authority to play shots later on. Adds that he is currently enjoying his game out here and hopes to win this series 4-0.

EOIN MORGAN, the England skipper, is happy with today's performance especially after losing the toss. Adds that Ali's innings today was the difference between the sides and he delivers when the team requires him to. Reckons that even though West Indies came out positively and scored boundaries at the start, anything above 360 is a tough chase. Is pleased with his bowlers executing their plans. States that Plunkett extracted a lot from this surface which ended up being good for them. Ends saying that they would be ruthless over the next two games also.

JASON HOLDER, the West Indian skipper says that Rovman Powell brought them into the game but they faltered again at the death where they went for plenty. Reckons that the balance was decent but they could not execute their plans. Mentions that hopefully they could do better in the next game. States that they could have bowled better in the death and feels that 300-320 was par on this track. Adds that they were sloppy in the field which they need to correct. Credits Chris Gayle for his performance. Ends by saying that players need to take ownership for their parts and that might help their cause.

Earlier in the evening, Moeen Ali enthralled the audience at Bristol with some brilliant batting. He along with Ben Stokes and Joe Root entertained the crowd. The match saw as many as 28 sixes being hit, the most in an ODI in the United Kingdom. Morgan will be really happy with this win as it would have enabled him to tick most of the boxes. Stay tuned, as we get you the presentation in a while.

West Indies' batting innings was all about Chris Gayle. Till the time he was at the crease, they were hopeful of running England close to the finish line. But Rashid's moment of brilliance on the field brought curtains to the whirlwind knock. Apart from the opener, only the two Jasons - Mohammed and Holder got some runs but it just wasn't enough.

England's second-biggest win over West Indies in limited over games - that's the magnitude of this win! Liam Plunkett can easily be termed as the star in this innings. A fifer in an ODI is rarity these days and he'll do well to savour this feat. England put up a clinical performance today. He was ably assisted by Adil Rashid, who picked up three wickets after coming in to bowl quite late in the innings.

39.1 L Plunkett to J Holder, OUT! Maiden fifer for Plunkett in ODIs! Fuller delivery outside off, Holder gets underneath it and tries to go for the big one. Cannot get the distance on it as the ball goes straight into the hands of Moeen Ali at long off. With that, it's all over for West Indies. ENGLAND WIN BY 124 RUNS AND TAKE AN UNASSAILABLE 2-0 LEAD IN THE SERIES! 245/10

38.6 A Rashid to M Cummins, FOUR! Off the mark! Again sprayed down the leg side, Cummins unleashes another sweep. Gets it through the fine leg region for a boundary. 245/9

JEROME TAYLOR is the penultimate man.

37.6 L Plunkett to D Bishoo, OUT! Another one bites the dust! Fuller delivery outside off at a slower pace. Bishoo swings the bat with all his might.

37.2 L Plunkett to J Holder, SIX! Holder is smacking it all around the park! Jason comes down the track to the fuller delivery outside off and smashes that straight down the ground for half a dozen. 238/7

37.1 L Plunkett to J Holder, Good length delivery outside off, Holder defends it towards point. 232/7

36.6 A Rashid to D Bishoo, NOT OUT! Another googly around off, Bishoo tries to play the drive but he fails to read the spin. The keeper collects the ball and whips the bails off. The players appeal and the umpire chooses to go upstairs. Replays show that the batsmen was well inside the line. 232/7

36.5 A Rashid to D Bishoo, Bishoo lunges forward and defends it neatly. 232/7

36.4 A Rashid to D Bishoo, Wrong 'un outside off, Bishoo gets totally undone by the googly as he tries to defend it. 232/7

36.3 A Rashid to D Bishoo, Quicker into the pads, Bishoo fails to clip it through. 232/7

36.2 A Rashid to D Bishoo, Flatter outside off, Bishoo stays in his crease and defends it. 232/7

36.1 A Rashid to D Bishoo, FOUR! Good shot! Low full toss in line of the pads, Bishoo kneels down quickly and sweeps it through the backward square leg region for a boundary. 232/7

35.6 L Plunkett to J Holder, FOUR! Smashed! Short delivery into the batsman, Holder uses his height to perfection. Stands tall and pulls it through the square leg region for a boundary. 228/7

34.2 A Rashid to D Bishoo, Floats it around leg, Bishoo drives it to long on for a run. 213/7

DEVENDRA BISHOO walks out to bat.

34.1 A Rashid to A Nurse, OUT! Nurse departs and with him, takes away the sole review that his side had. Rashid tosses this around middle and leg, Ashley strides forward to defend. Misses the ball and gets hit on the pads adjacent to the stumps. On appeal, the umpire rules him out. For some strange reason, after some discussion with Holder, he decides to review. But hold on, it is tighter than it seems. Hawk Eye shows that it would have just gone on to clip the top of the stumps. So it stays as umpire's call, which is out. Nurse has to walk back and the visitors are closer to doom. 212/7

Nurse has been adjudged LBW. He's decided to review the same. Looked plumb to the naked eye.

ADIL RASHID gets a change of ends.

33.6 L Plunkett to A Nurse, Full ball on middle and leg, flicked through square leg for a run. 212/6

33.5 L Plunkett to A Nurse, Bowls it outside off, Nurse looks to flay at that but misses. 211/6

ASHLEY NURSE is the next man in.

33.2 L Plunkett to J Mohammed, OUT! Picks the fielder out perfectly! Plunkett bangs a short delivery around off, Mohammed fetches the pull and hits it straight to the man at deep square leg, where Bairstow makes no mistake. The ball got big on him and hence he couldn't control the pull shot at all. He was the set batsman and he should have carried on. England now inching closer to wiping off the tourists' batting. West Indies require 161 more off 100 deliveries! 210/6

33.1 L Plunkett to J Mohammed, Begins with a length ball outside off, cut away straight to point. 210/5

LIAM PLUNKETT is back on for a spell.

Drinks have been taken.

32.2 M Ali to J Holder, Lands it around off, Holder turns it through mid-wicket for a single. 203/5

32.1 M Ali to J Holder, Not Out! England lose their lone review. Ali tosses this outside off, it turns in and hits Holder's back leg after the ball misses the defensive bat. England appeal but the umpire stays put. After some deliberation, they decide to review. Hawk Eye shows that the ball would have passed over the stumps. So the on-field call stays. Holder survives. 202/5

LBW decision upheld against Holder has been reviewed by England. The impact seems to be outside off and the height looks to be an issue as well.

31.6 A Rashid to J Holder, Lands it around middle, driven to long on for a run. 202/5

31.5 A Rashid to J Holder, SIX! What a clean strike that is! Rashid tosses this up around middle and leg, Holder gets down and slogs it over deep mid-wicket. High and handsome. 201/5

31.4 A Rashid to J Holder, This delivery is turned towards mid-wicket. 195/5

31.3 A Rashid to J Holder, Tosses it around middle and leg, Holder paddles it through short fine leg. Willey hurls a throw at the keeper's end and it just misses the stumps. Had he hit, it would have been curtains for Holder. 195/5

30.1 M Ali to J Holder, Tosses this around middle, Holder fails to account for the turn and wears it on the pads. 192/5

Skipper JASON HOLDER is the next man in.

29.6 A Rashid to R Powell, OUT! Rashid strikes! Powell holes out! Rashid tosses this around middle, Rovman looks to go big yet again. Ends up getting the height but not the distance. Woakes settles under it from long on and pouches it safely. End of Powell's brief stay at the crease. Now the wickets are beginning to come for England. 192/5

29.5 A Rashid to R Powell, Loops it up around off, blocked off the front foot. 192/4

29.4 A Rashid to R Powell, This delivery is pushed to point. 192/4

29.3 A Rashid to R Powell, SIX! Thumped! Rashid floats it gently around off and middle, Powell hits it straight over the bowler's head for a maximum. Such clean strike that! 192/4

After the brilliance on the field, ADIL RASHID comes on to bowl.

26.6 C Woakes to J Mohammed, This delivery is played towards mid off. 176/4

ROVMAN POWELL strides out to bat.

26.5 C Woakes to C Gayle, OUT! Chris Gayle has to depart, courtesy some brilliance in the field from Adil Rashid! Slower fuller ball on the pads, Gayle plays it with soft hands towards mid-wicket and sets off for a run. Rashid from mid-wicket rushes there and hurls a throw at the bowler's end and hits the bull's eye. The umpire goes upstairs. Replays show that he is just short and hence has to walk back now. He's dismissed in the 90s in ODIs for the first time since 2008 and now England would sniff a chance. Gayle's Achilles heel has brought his downfall. Often fielding masterpieces help shift the momentum of the game from one side to the other. Will this be the case now? 176/4

Run out appeal against Chris Gayle is referred upstairs. He seems to be struggling to make his ground there.

25.4 Ben Stokes to C Gayle, This is on a length on the pads, he flicks it round the corner for a run. 169/3

25.4 Ben Stokes to C Gayle, WIDE! Bowls a short ball on middle, Gayle sways away to let that go. Wide signaled. One bouncer for the over the signaled. 168/3

22.5 M Ali to C Gayle, SIX! That's three in three! Ali bowls this one outside off, Gayle shows his class and just smacks that over long off for half a dozen. With that, he has entered into his 90s. 155/3

15.5 L Plunkett to J Mohammed, Bowls it outside off, Mohammed looks to drive but misses the ball. 109/3

15.4 L Plunkett to J Mohammed, This is way outside off, left alone. 109/3

Jason Mohammed walks out to bat next.

15.3 L Plunkett to M Samuels, OUT! England make a successful use of the review! Plunkett bowls it full outside off, Samuels looks to drive but seems to have missed that. Buttler and Root, from slip, appeal as they hear something, the umpire stays put though. Bowler seems unsure, but the two guys behind the stumps are pretty sure and they insist their skipper review it, who eventually obliges. Snicko shows the faintest of spikes as the ball passes the edge of the bat. That prompts the third umpire to overturn the on-field decision. Samuels has to walk back now. He doesn't look happy with that. The evidence wasn't really conclusive as to the presence of the edge. But we will have to stay with the final call, nevertheless. 109/3

England have opted for a review. They feel Marlon Samuels has nicked one back to the keeper.

15.2 L Plunkett to M Samuels, FOUR! Slashes and slashes hard! Length ball outside off, Samuels goes hard at that. He gets it over point for a boundary. 109/2
