Commentary (West Indies innings)

That brings us to the end of our coverage of this game. West Indies did compete but eventually, England proved too good for their opponents. The next match of the series is at the same venue on 5th March, 2017. The action begins at 0930 local, 1330 GMT. Do join us for that one. Till next time, it's goodbye from us. Cheers!

EOIN MORGAN (MAN OF THE MATCH) attributes his recent good form to enjoying his cricket and batting with more freedom. Admits that the pitch was tough to bat early on and so he took his time before gradually playing his shots. Says that he and Stokes talked about getting their eye in first. Praises Billings for his valuable contribution. Says that Stokes was fit to bowl but the conditions didn't require his bowling. States the pitch was a bit uneven and shot making got tougher. Maintains that there are some areas to improve on and hopes his side can get it right in the next match.

JASON HOLDER feels that losing early wickets hurt West Indies and laments some soft dismissals as well. Feels that they could have done better with the ball and admits that the dropped chance of Morgan cost them big. Feels that it was important to get longer partnerships on this pitch but they couldn't maintain more of them. Praises Mohammed and Carter for their contributions. Ends by saying that there are positives and hopes that they can rectify the mistakes in the next game.

Plunkett and Woakes were brilliant, ending up with 4 wickets apiece. They were brilliant both with the new and old balls with good support from Finn. While the quicks were impressive, England's spinners couldn't create much of an impression. In the end, it was a relatively easy victory for the visitors. Early in the day, skipper Morgan's ton helped England post a daunting total with Stokes and Billings playing valuable knocks as well.

Comfortable win in the end for England as they go 1-0 up in the three-match ODI series. Chasing a stiff target of 297, West Indies' openers started with caution but then three wickets fell quickly to dent the chase. Hope and Mohammed repaired the innings a bit with a sensible partnership before the former departed. Mohammed batted on and found a valiant partner in Carter as the duo brought the chase alive with a fine stand. Once it was broken, the innings slowly folded up although Nurse played a few big shots at the death.

47.2 L Plunkett to S Gabriel, OUT! So that does it. West Indies have been bowled out. It's all over. Back of a length angling down, Shannon Gabriel looks to glance it fine down the leg side but can only manage to get some glove on it. Jos Buttler comes running in and takes a dolly. Appeals and the umpire eventually raises his finger. With this, ENGLAND WIN BY 45 RUNS! 251/10

47.1 L Plunkett to D Bishoo, Full delivery, it's driven through point for a single. 251/9

Liam Plunkett is back.

46.6 C Woakes to S Gabriel, Takes the pace off this and bowls it on a good length, outside off, Gabriel is beaten by the lack of pace as he hangs his bat out to it. 250/9

46.5 C Woakes to S Gabriel, Full toss again, Gabriel drives it straight to the cover fielder. 250/9

46.4 C Woakes to S Gabriel, Low full toss on middle and off, hit back to the left of the bowler. 250/9

Shannon Gabriel is the last man in.

46.3 C Woakes to A Nurse, OUT! He's dead plumb. Nurse's brief fightback has come to an end. Woakes angles in a full length ball on middle and leg, raps Ashley on the pads as he looks to flick it away. The umpire takes a moment but then eventually raises his finger to the leg before appeal. Nurse for the sake of it reviews the decision and replays also show him to be gone. The ball was clipping leg stump. England just need 1 wicket now to win. 250/9

Only an inside edge can save Nurse here.

Ashley Nurse has been adjudged out lbw decision. He has decided to review the decision, more out of optimism. Seems quite plumb.

46.2 C Woakes to A Nurse, SIX! He's launched that one out of here. What a hit! Full and outside off, in the slot as Nurse gets well under this. He smokes this straight back down the ground and gets a biggie to his name. 250/8

46.1 C Woakes to A Nurse, Spears in a full delivery just around off, Nurse off the inside half drives it to mid on. 244/8

45.6 S Finn to D Bishoo, FOUR! BOOM! Consecutive boundaries to end the over with. Fuller on the stumps, Bishoo slogs it right through the gap in the mid-wicket region. WI need 53 runs to win off 24 deliveries. 244/8

45.5 S Finn to D Bishoo, FOUR! Devendra Bishoo sending one across. It's on a back of a length, Bishoo hangs back and pulls it over mid-wicket comfortably. Nobody out there in the deep and that will run away across the fence. 240/8

45.4 S Finn to A Nurse, Short of a length outside off, Ashley Nurse drags the pull to deep mid-wicket for a single. 236/8

44.6 C Woakes to D Bishoo, Full on the stumps, driven to long on for a single and that will be the end of the over. 232/8

44.5 C Woakes to A Nurse, In the air.... but safe! Fuller outside off, Nurse goes for the big slog once more but gets a huge top edge. It however falls safely behind the stumps as nobody could come under it. One run taken. 231/8

44.4 C Woakes to A Nurse, SIX! Ashley Nurse giving just what the doctor ordered. Full around off, Nurse gets low and slogs it high and handsome over the mid-wicket fence for a biggie. Really got hold of that one. 230/8

Devendra Bishoo is the next man in.

44.3 C Woakes to C Brathwaite, OUT! Length delivery outside off, Carlos Brathwaite clears his front leg to go big over long on, but ends up getting a big top edge which balloons to extra cover. Joe Root is the man there and he takes a good, safe catch. The end is nigh for West Indies. 224/8

44.2 C Woakes to C Brathwaite, Bowls it marginally ahead of a length, it's flicked straight to the mid-wicket fielder who is standing right at the edge of the circle. 224/7

Ashley Nurse is the new man in.

41.6 S Finn to C Brathwaite, OUT! He's gone. Casual running has done him in. The big fish Mohammed has to pay the price for that and now, makes the long walk back. Carlos defends a short ball on the leg side and calls for the run. Mohammed is running in a rather sloppy manner as Finn also charges to the ball. He kicks it on to the stumps and the decision is taken upstairs. Replays show Jason Mohammed's bat was just out of the crease and he's out. West Indies need 87 off 48. 210/7

A run out appeal against Jason Mohammed is referred upstairs by the umpire.

40.5 L Plunkett to C Brathwaite, Risky stuff. Carlos works it in front of short mid-wicket and sets off. Stokes there runs to the ball and throws it at the bowler's end behind through his legs, and almost gets his man too. Close call. 204/6

40.4 L Plunkett to J Mohammed, Another length delivery in the off stump channel, angled to third man once more for another single. 203/6

Carlos Brathwaite is the new man in.

40.2 L Plunkett to J Holder, OUT! Edged and taken! The West Indies skipper is gone. Back of a length delivery in the channel outside off, Jason Holder looks to run it down to third man but ends up getting a faint tickle behind. Jos Buttler takes a regulation catch and that's another wicket down for the hosts. Holder had begun to walk even before the umpire's finger went up. WI need 96 to win off 58 balls. 201/6

There are loud appeals for a leg before which are turned down. England however review the decision and replays show that the ball would have missing the leg stump. So the decision stays. 98/3

England have taken a review for lbw against Mohammed. Looked a bit marginal but where it pitched will be the main question.
