    MAN OF THE MATCH

    Man of the match Stephen Parry: "This is obviously one of the proudest moments of life. Six months ago I didn't think I'd be on this tour. It's more important that the boys got a win. I just didn't give the batsmen any width to score. I thought it'd be my day and I'd hit the winning runs."

    Matt Miller: Re: 20:46: Because Bopara scored 38 today does not mean he deserves a Test call-up! Two very different games! On this basis Lumb will be expecting a call up after his ton and 39 today?

    The Bopara Debate in full flow...

  4.  

    West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo: "It was a poor batting display - that's two games in a row now. I expected better. Losing early wickets makes it always difficult for the lower order to catch up. We need to plan in order to bounce back. When we were bowling once we picked up early wickets we knew how dangerous Sunil Narine can be. The team are going to get some harsh words from me. If we had batted the last five overs then we might have seen the game come out different."

  5.  

    England captain Stuart Broad: "We're delighted to have won - the bowling was awesome, the guys learned from the other day and to bowl the West Indies out for under 160 was great - we had a nice start and then a little wobble, but we got over the line in the end. Spinners picked up a lot of wickets today and looked hard to score off, which creates pressure. We're on a new wicket on Wednesday and we'll have to adjust to that.

    "That's why Ravi's batting at seven, we know he's a strong finisher and it was great to see him take that responsibility on. We just took it five runs at a time - if you're chasing 60 you think it's a lot, if you're chasing five it's easier to chase it down."

  6. 20:49: 
    MAN OF THE MATCH

    And a quick look at the name on the man-of-the-match cheque reveals it's Stephen Parry who gets the nod on his international debut.

    Deborah in Duchess, Alberta, Canada: Batsmen 7, 8 and 9 outscored batsmen 1, 2, 3 and 4 and equalled the score of 1 to 5, does this concern anyone else but me? Many many congrats to Ravi though done it again for England!

    David, Spain: Oh my. We've got the rock to the top of the hill at last. Congratulations to Broad & co.

    Alex Odlin: I've lost a good 30 minutes of essay writing time waiting for Broad and Bopara to finish this.

    Finian Black: Well done England. It might have been a bit messy but a win's a win. Let's build on it and win the series. Australia who?

    Arsenal Forever: Surely Bopara should be given another chance in the Test side - he has shown more grit than most England players in the Ashes!

    I'm sure The Bopara Debate will run and run tonight...

    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "Winning these matches is important - it gives you confidence, if anything else. These guys will be going to the World Twenty20 in a couple of weeks. The win builds confidence and gives you self belief. Even if it's an inconsequential series, it's a victory. They go into the next match on Wednesday knowing they can win the series. The Windies fought back in the middle of the match and made themselves favourites. Even with Broad and Bopara at the crease England still needed 50-odd to win."

  12. 20:39: 
    MAN OF THE MATCH

    So, and interesting choice for man of the match. Debutant Stephen Parry took 3-32 and has a DNB-BPU to add to his career records (did not bat, but padded up). Ravi Bopara fulfilled the role of "finisher" by seeing England home. Dwayne Bravo had a pretty good match as batsman, bowler, fielder and captain (and can consider himself unlucky to have been stumped in the manner he was). And even Lendl Simmons can point to scoring 70 in a match where no-one else scored more than 39...

  13. 20:36: 
    CHAMPAGNE MOMENT

    ENGLAND WIN BY THREE WICKETS AND LEVEL THREE-MATCH ODI SERIES AT 1-1

  14. 44.5 overs: 
    Eng 163-7

    Dwayne Smith has the unenviable task of being West Indies' sixth bowler here. Bopara guides a single through the covers to level the scores. A deep square leg is set, knowing how much Broad enjoys the hook shot... he swings and misses. And finally it's game over as Broad cracks the ball through the covers for four to win the game and level the series.

  15. 44 overs: 
    Eng 158-7 (target 160)

    Darren Sammy to bowl - he has to, there's no-one else left among the main bowlers - and Bopara pushes a single, while the West Indian fielders' body language shows they know the game is up. Two to win. Broad has a big mow.... and misses. Then he gives himself room, chops the ball into the on side and nearly contrives to run himself out as he goes for a run which was never there. He's led a (very) charmed life this evening, but a direct hit would have finally done for him. Somehow Broad survives the over, picking out fielders with legside slogs, but it's still only two needed from 36 balls.

    Sanjam Suri: Following the match on TMS while sitting in my university library in London, Canada. This match reminds me of a match in 2007 where Broad and Bopara took England home against all expectations. Well played Bopara.

  17. 43 overs: 
    Eng 157-7 (target 160)

    Bravo goes for broke, bowling his 10th over - so by the end of this over, his four main bowlers will have all bowled out, with Sammy only having bowled three, and a sixth bowler (Dwayne Smith?) will be needed if England don't finish it next over. Bopara is watchful, eventually pushing a single wide of mid-off. Six needed. Broad ducks a bouncer, and the last ball is another bouncer - and called as a no-ball for too many bouncers in the over. (That's the fifty partnership, by the way). Five to win. Broad threads a two through the covers - so three to win from 42 balls. Bravo finishes with 2-41.

  18.   
    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "It's been a magnificent spell from Narine. He absolutely flummoxed Luke Wright to get him out. He barely went for a run."

  19. 42 overs: 
    Eng 153-7 (target 160)

    Narine to bowl his last over, will England see him off or go for the big hits? A careful Bopara single reduces the deficit to seven. Broad plays and misses a couple of times, but time is running out for West Indies here as Narine finishes his spell with 1-25 from 10 overs. England need seven from 48 balls.

    Joe Turner: Good to see some heart and fightback from Broad! Nothing stupid lads!

    Howard Horner: If we win this then be positive! We showed real character getting over the line. This could be the start of a new era! (I hope!)

  21. 41 overs: 
    Eng 152-7 (target 160)
    England's Ravi Bopara

    Rampaul to bowl out here, Bopara dabs a single to third man - 12 to win. Broad flashes a two through the covers to bring up the 150 for England, but then has to weave away from a snorter from the hefty pace bowler. Broad chops another two past the diving gully fielder - eight to win. Broad tries to uppercut a bouncer and might have been caught behind if he'd made contact... but he survives. Eight needed from 54 balls. Rampaul finishes with 1-40.

    Ben Christofides: Like Bopara coming in down the order. In England colours he seems more suited to the rearguard action than giving early impetus.

    Arsenal Forever: Good play from Bopara. He will no doubt therefore get out shortly.

  23. 40 overs: 
    Eng 147-7 (target 160)

    Narine back on to bowl the last over of the powerplay, and his ninth over. Bopara moves to 33 with a single, Narine has Broad in a bit of trouble, but the skipper looks happy to play out the over, although there are hearts in mouths as he edges the last ball down into the ground and between first and second slip for four - and I honestly can't remember the last time England didn't lose a wicket in the batting powerplay... maybe this is the start of a brave new era?! They need 13 from 60 balls.

  24.   
    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "These are two vital overs. Surely sensible play will reign. Bopara and Broad need to make sure they keep Narine out."

  25. 39 overs: 
    Eng 142-7 (target 160)

    Simon Mann on TMS reckons since winning the Ashes series at Chester-le-Street, England have lost 16 of their last 21 international matches in all formats, Rampaul to bowl his ninth over, Broad and Bopara add a couple of singles but then Bopara is nearly caught halfway down the pitch - as Bresnan was - as Broad sends him back, waving his arm as though he's swatting a wasp. A good stop by Sammy at slip prevents another run. 18 needed from 66 balls.

    David McQueen in response to Gary Lineker: Were we not the best team in the world when KP was in the team? No disharmony then? Blame the leadership. Not KP.

  27. 38 overs: 
    Eng 140-7 (target 160)

    Bravo is rationing Narine's overs in one-over spells at the moments, as the spinner's off and Bravo himself returns for his ninth over. (Although if this game goes the distance, Darren Sammy is in danger of having to bowl the last seven overs single-handed). Broad and Bopara help themselves to three singles, and that's more than enough for England to canter along with at this rate. Bopara lofts a two over the bowler's head as Miller cuts it off just before the rope. Suddenly, England only need 20 from 72 balls.

    Dave Murtagh: Just tuned in for the first time since Ashes debacle. How can they go from heroes to below zeroes in six months? And Ashley Giles is not the man to sort it out!

  29. 37 overs: 
    Eng 135-7 (target 160)

    Sammy's off and Rampaul returns - Bopara eases the pressure with a fluent cut shot for four. Maybe Ravi's going to confound the expectations of a few of the doom-mongers today. A single takes him to 28, Broad pokes a single to cover to retain the strike.

    Former England football captain Gary Lineker: Perhaps England's cricket selectors should've addressed dressing-room disharmony by keeping Kevin Pietersen and dropping the other 10.

  31. 36 overs: 
    POWERPLAY- Eng 129-7 (target 160)

    The batting powerplay surfaces like an evil enemy submarine ready to torpedo England's hopes... and the Windies turn back to Narine as their go-to bowler. He has three overs left. Bopara pushes a single and shares a joke with Sammy, and Broad pushes a single to long-off. Bopara runs a quick single, Broad plays and misses at Narine and England need 31 from 84 balls.

    Sanj: Nice responsible batting there from Broad! Seriously, what is going on out there?

    Laurie Armitt: Why is Bopara down at number 7? He needs to be 5 or 6 at least in this line-up. Drop Buttler and Stokes down.

  33. 35 overs: 
    CLOSE!- Eng 126-7
    England captain Stuart Broad

    Broad pulls Sammy for a single past square-leg umpire Rod Tucker, who languidly lifts a leg to prevent the ball hitting him. Bopara unleashes another exquisite cover-driven four, which even has Sir Viv on TMS purring - he describes it as "sweetly spanked". A single takes the Essex all-rounder to 21, then Broad hooks, doesn't quite get hold of it fully but he's nearly caught on the mid-wicket boundary by Kieran Powell leaping back as the ball goes for four. It would have been a superb one-handed catch if it had been taken, but he didn't quite get to it. I make that five lives for Broad so far!

  34.   
    Sir Viv Richards, Ex-West Indies captain on BBC Test Match Special

    "Edwards did the correct thing by going for the catch. It just fell short. Broad should be quite wary of that hook shot."

    Listen to Test Match Special commentary on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

  35. 34 overs: 
    DROPPED CATCH- Eng 116-7

    Hey, Ravi, I thought we had all agreed to calm down? Bopara swishes and misses at Rampaul outside off stump. Watching England in run chases like this does nothing for one's blood pressure. A single takes him to 16. Broad top-edges one into the air... and it just falls short of the diving Kirk Edwards sprinting in from deep fine leg, and they run two. Broad gets another life when he slashes at one outside off stump, Dwayne Bravo leaps to his left at slip and gets both hands to it but can't hold on. A single is taken. Broad has four, but has nearly been out four times already.

  36.   
    Sir Viv Richards, Ex-West Indies captain on BBC Test Match Special
    West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo

    "I think the West Indies are in this position because of captain Bravo. He is brilliant - he loves this game of cricket. He breathes it and sleeps it. He is just a magnificent cricketer."

  37. 19:39: 
    DRINKS BREAK

    And it's time for a drinks break. Time for England to calm down a bit - they *only* need 48 from 102 balls. That's not even three an over.

  38. 33 overs: 
    OUCH!- Eng 112-7 (target 160)

    Fielders Dwayne Bravo and Kirk Edwards collide at long-on as Bopara drills Sammy for a single. Broad, wearing one of those cycling-style helmets favoured by Michael Carberry, Kumar Sangakkara and James Taylor among others, helps a single to third man, so he's off the mark. Bopara eases the tension with a well-timed square-driven four past point. Anotehr single takes him to 15.

    John Simpson: Am I the only one that believes that England can win (and in miracles)?

  40. 32 overs: 
    NOT OUT- Eng 105-7

    Did that flick his glove, or his shoulder? It's an ugly position - he has one hand off the bat, jumping in the air while ducking (if you know what I mean). "Not out" is the verdict, as umpire Tucker makes the "safe" signal like a baseball umpire.

  41.   
  42. 32 overs: 
    UMPIRE REVIEW

    Captain Stuart Broad is the new batsman, he fends one off to short fine leg where Darren Sammy's throw just misses the stumps as Broad tries to regain his ground. A direct hit would have left him struggling. Broad is then given out caught behind attempting to fend off a bouncer, and immediately calls for a review...

  43.   
    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "That was a magnificent piece of fielding from Bravo. Bresnan made the schoolboy error of running on a shot. Bopara did the right thing by waiting to see what would happen. West Indies know they are in command of this match."

  44. 31.4 overs: 
    WICKET- Bresnan run out (DJ Bravo/Ramdin) 10 (Eng 105-7)

    A rare boundary as Bresnan straight-drives at Rampaul and Kieran Powell makes a complete horlicks of trying to stop the ball before it crosses the rope. Double teapots all round among the Windies fielders. Bresnan then tries to push a quick single to mid-wicket and is run out by a sensational pick up and throw by Dwayne Bravo. Top, top fielding, Bresnan was left stranded mid-pitch while Bopara had hardly moved, but let's salute a great piece of fielding rather than apportion blame.

  45. 31 overs: 
    Eng 101-6 (target 160)

    Finally we have a fifth bowler as West Indies turn to the medium-fast right-arm seam of Darren Sammy, who remains the Test and T20 captain but no longer leads the side in ODIs. He keeps it tight against Bresnan, who can only manage a single to long-on off the last ball. The last 10 overs have produced 20 runs and three wickets.

    Richy: Giles said it's about building atmosphere not results... What? Cheers then Ashley, good luck at the job club.

  47. 30 overs: 
    APPEAL - NOT OUT- Eng 100-6

    I'm not trying to labour the point, but West Indies will have to turn to a fifth bowler at some point, and their reluctance hints that England might profit there... Narine takes a rest with three overs remaining and Rampaul returns. After a single from Bopara, there's a strong appeal for a catch behind as Bresnan fends and misses at a lifter outside off stump. Bresnan pulls and misses at a couple of deliveries, but a punch through the covers brings up the hundred for England. They need 60 from 120 balls - perhaps a better finish in prospect than we thought earlier.

    Eng 98-6 (target 160)

    Nikita may not be counting 10 tin soldiers in a row, but he's bowled his 10 overs in a row here, as he begins his last. Bresnan guides a single off his legs, Bopara threads one past cover and Bresnan helps a two to the mid-wicket sweeper. Miller finishes his spell with figures of 10-1-28-2.

  51. 28 overs: 
    Eng 94-6

    West Indies turn back to Sunil Narine - a good bowling change for them as Bresnan really struggled to pick the Trinidadian spinner the other day. Big Tim survives five dot balls before they scamper one from a ball which was signalled as wide. Bopara negotiates the last ball - Narine has 1-16 from seven.

  53. 27 overs: 
    APPEAL - NOT OUT- Eng 92-6

    Miller appeals for lbw against Bopara, a leg bye is signalled so perhaps the umpire thought it was creeping down the leg side. A short leg, Kieran Powell, is summoned for Bresnan, who's off the mark with a single to wide mid-off. That's the only one off the bat this over, Miller has 2-24 from nine.

  54.   
    Kevin Howells, BBC Test Match Special

    "These two were criticised for not hitting boundaries the other day but if they can produce that kind of partnership today they could go close to winning the game. It's a question of putting together a partnership, however slowly, they have bags of time left."

  55. 26 overs: 
    Eng 90-6 (target 160)

    Still no sign of a fifth bowler from West Indies - there are still four Narine overs in the bank and Rampaul is warming up in the deep, but for now it's Bravo in for his eighth over - and he sends down five dot balls until Bopara finds the gap and drills a single to the cover sweeper. 70 needed from 144 balls. Plenty of time - if they can stay in.

    "It goes from bad to worse. There was a huge appeal, the West Indies were getting quite annoyed with the umpire but Ben Stokes did the right thing by walking off. That's good to see, as much as I want England to win, everyone in cricket should do that in my humble opinion."

    West Indies wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin (second left) catches the ball to dismiss England batsman Ben Stokes

    The bearded Miller to bowl his eighth consecutive over of left-arm spin. Stokes tries to nudge into the leg side, the ball scoops up into the air and there's momentary confusion as West Indies appeal and the umpire shakes his head, but Stokes walks off. Clearly he knew he'd hit it.

  60. 24 overs: 
    Eng 89-5 (target 160)

    Dwayne Bravo has a broad smile on his face as he begins his seventh over. Bopara and Stokes add a couple of singles, before Bopara shows the other side of his game with an attractive cover-driven four. "In Ravi we trust," insists his former team-mate Graeme Swann on TMS.

    Mike Flint: England managing to make a tedious win look like a potential defeat. And doing it in a very boring way.

  62. 23 overs: 
    Eng 83-5

    Tim Bresnan is suddenly finding himself padded up and adjusting his bat handle on the balcony rather than relaxing in his shorts as he'd have been a couple of overs ago, while limited-overs batting coach Graham Thorpe's hair seems to have turned grey overnight. Back on the pitch, Stokes pushes a single and Bopara is off the mark with a panicky must-get-off-the-mark-ASAP single, which momentarily reminds me of He Who Must Not Be Named when he runs out to bat after having an energy drink.

  63.   
    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "Those three wickets have put the cat among the pigeons, the West Indies have clawed themselves right back into this game. But Ravi is a very calm character, batting or in the field he is always very relaxed."

  68. 21.2 overs: 
    WICKET- Buttler c Ramdin b DJ Bravo 0 (Eng 81-5)

    Jos Buttler goes first ball, caught behind as he tries to fend off a short ball and he gloves it to the keeper. Bravo on a hat-trick! The last eight balls have seen two runs, three wickets. Wheels definitely off and rolling down the road to St John's!

  69. 21.1 overs: 
    WICKET- Root c and b DJ Bravo (Eng 81-4)
    West Indies bowler Dwayne Bravo celebrates after taking the wicket of England batsman Joe Root

    Suddenly, Root pops a return catch back to Bravo. Bang bang, I can hear Sir Geoffrey talking about "add two wickets to the score". Wheels coming off?

  70. 21 overs: 
    Eng 81-3

    Ben Stokes is the new batsman, so England keep a left-hand/right-hand combo which is so useful in limited-overs cricket. He's off the mark with a two.

  71.   
    Sir Viv Richards, Ex-West Indies captain on BBC Test Match Special

    "He didn't quite pick the line, he went back and that looked pretty adjacent to me. With the new batter in, this will be a great occasion to bring Narine back to add to the little bit of success that Nikita Miller has just had."

  72. 20.3 overs: 
    WICKET- Lumb lbw b Miller 39 (Eng 79-3)

    Miller strikes with the third ball of his sixth over as Lumb is trapped in front of all three on the back foot. Michael Lumb, you were Michael Plumb there. And at a stroke, his ODI average is halved from 145 to 72.5.

  73. 20 overs: 
    Eng 79-2 (Lumb 39*, Root 23*)

    Root guides Bravo for a single down to the chunky Rampaul at fine leg, Lumb pierces the off-side field and a well-run three results. Bravo sends down a wide, and Root dabs a quick single into the covers. Long-off is moved back, and Lumb helps himself to a single to that region. Steady by England, it may not be spectacular but it's effective so far.

  75. 19 overs:

    With the players refreshed, it's slow left-armer Miller to continue. Root clips a quick single to mid-on where Darren Sammy does the fielding, perhaps wondering when he's going to be asked to bowl. But a better over from Miller.

    Cap'n Bravo gives Narine a rest - or more likely, keeps his remaining four overs for later - and recalls himself to the attack, no sign of a fifth bowler yet. He goes round the wicket to Lumb who off-drives fiercely, and a diving stop by Kieran Powell prevents the boundary as they run three. A single takes Root to 20 and the partnership to 40, while Bravo sends down a legside wide. England have 192 balls to score 89 more. And that looks like a drinks break to us...

  78. 17 overs: 
    Eng 66-2 (target 160)
    Joe Root of England bats

    Root and Lumb continue to help themselves to any available singles off Miller, who is bowling in a pair of dark sunglasses, while Root punishes a loose delivery with a four through the covers. Miller has 0-18 from four overs, Narine has 1-14 from six.

    Sir Viv recalls tangling with the distinctly nippy Australian quick bowler Duncan Spencer, then playing for Kent, in a Sunday League match for Glamorgan in 1993:

    "If I remember correctly I got 40-odd not out! He did ruffle some feathers but at the end of the day we put 'em back! He was swift, he was only a short guy and he only just got away with being a midget."

  80. 16 overs: 
    Eng 60-2 (Lumb 31*, Root 14*)

    Narine continues for his sixth over, and concedes a boundary for the first time as Root nudges a four off his legs. A single takes the young Yorkshireman to 14, and this stand is worth 30.

    Eng 45-2 (target 160)

    Root, in a long-sleeved shirt as ever, pushes Miller for a quick single to short fine leg, there's a moment of hesitation between the batsmen and Lumb has to dive to make his ground - had the throw been nearer the stumps, it might have been closer. Lumb nicks the strike with a single off the last ball.

    APPEAL - NOT OUT- Eng 43-2

    Simon Mann and Derek Pringle on TMS wonder if England can afford to just see off Narine's overs - but they can't do that with Miller as well. Root defends his pads like a French cricketer before tapping a gentle single to deep mid-wicket. Narine appeals for lbw against Lumb on the last ball, but there's nothing doing.

    It's Miller time - Nikita Miller on with his left-arm spin, Root tucks a single off his legs and Lumb hits one into the shin pads of the short-leg fielder. Two more singles mean it's a tidy first over from the Jamaican. England have 39 overs to score 118. They ought to fancy their chances if they had half that amount of overs.

  92. 10 overs: 
    Eng 39-2 (Lumb 23*, Root 2*)

    England negotiate Narine's third over with just a Root single from it. Narine has 1-5, and the good news for England is that he can only bowl seven more.

  93. 9 overs: 
    Eng 38-2 (target 160)

    Joe Root is the new batsman, possibly in a little earlier than he'd hoped. Lumb guides Rampaul for three, Root is off the mark as he cuts a single to third man, and Lumb moves to 23 as he punches a four through extra cover. He, at least, seems to be coping OK.

  94.   
    Derek Pringle, Ex-England all-rounder on BBC Test Match Special

    "I always get a bit nervous when I see batsmen play back to Sunil Narine, he's a bit like Anil Kumble in the way he gets the ball to skid on. He didn't look good on Friday and this was even worse. He had no clue about that delivery. Luke Wright: neutral position, feet nowhere, bowled off stump."

  95. 8 overs: 
    WICKET- Wright b Narine 0 (Eng 30-2)
    English batsman Luke Wright is dismissed as West Indies wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin

    A single from Lumb brings the right-handed (wright-handed?) Luke Wright on strike against Narine, with two slips and a short leg in. He seems to be in dire straits against Narine early on, not picking Narine's mystery spin, and the Sussex man's horror show ends as he's bowled for a duck.

    Wright was recalled to the ODI side in September after an absence of two years. Since then, he has scored 5, 0, 1 and 0.

  96.   
    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "This must be one of West Indies coach Ottis Gibson's bowling plans, they have bowled short, short, short at Lumb and Ali. Rampaul dug it in, you could day it was a good shot as he swivelled to pull it away and a touch higher it would have been six, but he's picked the man out in the deep. I wonder if the short-pitched bowling from Bravo is a reaction to him being hit on the head by Stuart Broad?"

    Luke Wright is the new batsman, and immediately has to face some chin music from Rampaul.

  98. 6.5 overs: 
    WICKET- Moeen c Miller b Rampaul 10 (Eng 29-1)

    Rampaul has changed ends and returns in place of Bravo, but Lumb powerfully guides a two past the diving Darren Sammy at square leg. A single takes him to 15, Moeen hoists one into the sky and is caught at deep square leg. The catcher, Nikita Miller, is wearing a maroon sunhat but with a brim approximately half the size of those massive ones sported by the newly knighted Sir Richie Richardson back in the day.

  100. 6 overs: 
    Eng 26-0 (Lumb 12*, Moeen 10*)
    England's Moeen Ali

    And as I write that, we have a change in bowling as off-spinner Sunil Narine - whose longer-on-top-and-shaved-at-the-sides hairstyle is almost a modern version of the Mohican - is into the attack. He has a slip and a helmeted short leg in attendance. Lumb drives a single, Moeen lifts one over cover and they run two, taking advantage of the early field restrictions.

  101. 5 overs: 
    Eng 23-0 (target 160)

    Lumb and Moeen are on the pull against Bravo, helping themselves to three singles and a two as they find easy pickings against the Windies skipper. He's going to have to change the bowling soon, as he really doesn't have that many runs to play with if England keep trotting along at four or five an over.

  102. 4 overs: 
    Eng 18-0 (Lumb 7*, Moeen 7*)
    English batsman Michael Lumb plays a ball during the second one day international

    Lumb is beaten between bat and pad, the keeper and slips appeal for a catch behind but the bowler didn't look convinced. The Notts opener dabs a single to third man, Moeen pulls a couple more which means both batsmen have seven.

    And as Swanny asked a couple of overs ago, I wonder how long before West Indies will turn to spin, considering how much trouble England had "picking" Sunil Narine the other day.

  103.   
    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "He shaped as if he was going to pull it but he was nowhere near it, it dinked off his helmet and in the end it was a good header for four! Should that be head byes rather than leg byes? Bravo looks innocuous pace-wise, and before you know it he gets one in and it hits you in the helmet. It's good bowling but of course he gets no reward."

  104. 3 overs: 
    Eng 15-0 (target 160)

    Bravo fires in a bouncer which flies off Moeen Ali's helmet for four leg byes. The Worcestershire left-hander then unleashes a lovely lofted cover drive for four as Bravo gives him too much width outside off stump. Shot of the day contender.

    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    Tom Wilkinson: Why do you keep calling Parry 'young' - he's 28.

    He's young in terms of international (and indeed first-class) cricket experience - but I take your point!

  123. 44.2 overs: 
    WICKET- Rampaul c Lumb b Tredwell 1 (WI 159 all out)

    Rampaul tries to lift Tredwell over the top and holes out at long-on - West Indies are all out with 5.4 overs to spare.

  124. 44 overs: 
    WI 159-9

    Parry, bowling his last over, spins down a wide to the left-handed Rampaul, who's off the mark with a careful single to square leg. He still holds the highest score by a number 10 in ODIs, after knocking India for an unbeaten 86 in December 2011 while adding 99 for the last wicket with Kemar Roach. I'd be willing to bet he won't do that today. Miller helps himself to a two to finally get off the mark, and Parry takes his cap with figures of 10-1-32-3.

  125. 43 overs: 
    WI 155-9

    West Indies are in real danger of not using up their overs here as the, ahem, powerfully-built Ravi Rampaul lopes to the crease. He's not facing yet as Miller sways away from a Bresnan bouncer, and eventually sees off a maiden over. He's yet to score from 10 deliveries, but at least he's not given his wicket away.

  126.   
    Derek Pringle, Ex-England all-rounder on BBC Test Match Special

    "I think Darren Sammy can consider himself a little bit unlucky, he drilled it, he hit it absolutely beautifully. But Broad managed to juggle it and it was a good recovery from him in the end. It would be criminal if West Indies don't use up their overs here."

  127. 42 overs: 
    WICKET- Narine st Buttler b Parry 4 (WI 155-9)
    Stephen Parry of England

    With only two batsmen left, the slight figure of Sunil Narine is preferred at number 10 to the burly figure of Ravi Rampaul. Narine's a left-hander - so as Tony Cozier notes on TMS, we have a left-arm spinner who bats right-handed (Miller) in with a right-arm spinner who bats left-handed (Narine). Narine skips down the track to Parry and cleanly strikes him for four over mid-off's head. But trying to heave over mid-wicket, he's stumped. Debutant Parry has 3-28 from nine.

  128. 41.1 overs: 
    WICKET- Sammy c Broad b Parry 3 (WI 151-8)

    Sammy tries to power Parry through the leg side and is caught - at the second or third attempt - by Broad at wide mid-on. Big wicket for England, we know how dangerous Sammy can be in the last 10.

  129. 41 overs: 
    WI 151-7

    Left-arm spinner Nikita Miller, recalled today, is the new batsman. He has an ODI fifty to his name, averaging 19.38 from 24 innings in 44 ODIs. He recently won back his place in the side after a three-year absence, but can't get the rest of Bresnan's over away and Big Tim completes a wicket maiden - quite a feat in the 41st over of an ODI.

  130.   
    Derek Pringle, Ex-England all-rounder on BBC Test Match Special

    "He seemed rooted to the spot, trying to cut it away but it was a mixed-seam, scrambled ball from Bresnan and I think in the end it wrong-footed him."

  131. 40.2 overs: 
    WICKET- Ramdin b Bresnan 5 (WI 151-7)

    With the powerplay concluded, Broad is replaced by Bresnan who has only bowled three overs so far. (With so many bowling options, I'm sure questions will be asked if whether England could omit one of the all-rounders in favour of a specialist batsman). Big Tim is right on the money as Ramdin is foxed by a straight ball which jags in a little, tries a cut shot and is bowled.

  132. 40 overs: 
    WI 151-6

    Parry to continue - have England finally found a spinner who doesn't mind bowling in the powerplay, which a certain GP Swann always seemed to be a little reluctant to do? Just two singles off the over, the young slow left-armer can be very pleased with 1-24 from his eight overs so far.

    Chris Jordan is on as a substitute fielder, we're not sure who's gone off. Simmons tucks into Parry, getting down on one knee launching a massive six over long-on and into the scoreboard. But attempting the same shot, he holes out to Stokes at cow corner to bring young Parry his first international wicket.

  139. 37 overs: 
    WI 139-5

    England keep an over of Tredwell up their sleeves as Broad returns for his seventh over - he's already bowled more than he did on Friday. No Afridi-esque fireworks as yet from Simmons and Sammy, who can only pick up three singles despite some aggressive shots.

    Asia Cup result

    There's been an exciting finish in the meeting between India and Pakistan in the Asia Cup in Mirpur.

Boom Boom, indeed.

  141. 36 overs: 
    POWERPLAY- WI 136-5

    The batting powerplay is signalled as new batsman Darren Sammy strides to the crease, fresh from his swashbuckling 61 from 36 balls (including four sixes) on Friday. There's a change in the bowling as Stokes is replaced by Parry - who, like Moeen Ali in the last game, is forced to bowl in a powerplay on his ODI debut. I believe they call that "tough love". Simmons and Sammy manage three singles, another tidy over from the debutant.

  142. 15:53: 

    Simmons left the field during that delay, presumably for a toilet break, and after he returns, Bravo takes a rather long time to leave the field. The West Indies coach Ottis Gibson raises his hands in frustration as though he can't believe how that was given out.

  143.   
    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "The fact it took so long, with so many replays, surely there is still doubt there and the benefit of the doubt has to go to the batsman to the letter of the law. How that is out is beyond me. I feel a bit aggrieved for Bravo but as an England fan I'm over the moon."

  144. 35 overs: 
    WICKET- DJ Bravo st Buttler b Tredwell 20 (WI 133-5)

    Ooh, this could be tight. Keeper Jos Buttler's body language isn't confident. He didn't take the ball cleanly down the leg side, Bravo was well out of his ground but the slow-motion replay shows the ball may have slipped out of Buttler's grasp by the time he broke the stumps. But did the ball break the stumps, or the gloves? It's not clear to me. Umpteen replays later, the verdict is.. out!

  145. 35 overs: 
    THIRD UMPIRE

    Tredwell into his ninth over, the last before West Indies will be obliged to take the batting powerplay. After Bravo nudges a leg bye, Simmons heaves the second six of the innings over wide long-off to bring up his second fifty partnership with a Bravo brother today. He adds as single, then Bravo comes down the track and there's an appeal for a stumping...

  146. 34 overs: 
    WI 125-4 (Simmons 53*, DJ Bravo 20*)

    Single from Simmons, then Bravo is gifted a run by Cap'n Broad who takes a wild throw at the stumps, which had no danger of running out Simmons and goes for an overthrow. Graeme Swann on TMS - who was the absolute king of chuntering at fielding mistakes off his bowling during his playing career - is seething on Stokes's behalf. The singles continue to flow, while Stokes also sends down a legside wide. Bravo rides his luck slightly as another hook shot reaches Root at deep square leg on the first bounce.

    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "I'm still a bit baffled by the decision to bowl first, with 40 overs from the spinners possible. The seamers have had to come back into it with Simmons and Bravo batting so freely."

    WI 112-4 (Simmons 46*, DJ Bravo 15*)

    England turn to their eighth (yes, eighth) bowler today - right-arm seamer Ben Stokes., whose first delivery is a wide. Bravo unleashes a powerful straight-driven four before scampering a couple of leg byes. A single takes him to 15, and the lack of music around the ground has dulled the atmosphere. Get those children out of the Party Stand!

    APPEAL - NOT OUT- WI 101-4
    Lendl Simmons

    Bopara hits Bravo on the pad, a less than confident appeal as West Indies trot through for a leg bye, that was high and going down the leg side. Simmons drives a single to long-on to take the hosts to three figures. It's already the 30th over, but we know from the last game how the Windies' lower-middle order have plenty of firepower to unleash in the last 10-15 overs. Bravo moves to a slightly ponderous eight from 21 balls with a single, Simmons has 45 from 74.

  157. 28 overs: 
    WI 95-4

    Medium-pacer Ravi Bopara is into the attack as England's seventh bowler, Simmons squeezes a two off the edge down to third man as he attempts to show Bopara the full face of the bat. A looser delivery is helped down the leg side and looks like being four all the way until a great dive on the rope by Joe Root restricts them to two.

  158.   
    Tony Cozier, BBC Test Match Special

    "We've seen in the Tests in South Africa that players from both sides have copped it on the helmet. South Africa feel Michael Clarke is really susceptible to the short ball, and they have peppered him on the arm and the head. It really reminded me of the West Indies' approach of years ago, of course then they were derided but this has been praised."

  159. 27 overs: 
    WI 91-4

    Bravo hooks Broad again, having no problem with the short ball as he takes a single to deep mid-wicket. Meanwhile, Tony Cozier and Sir Viv on TMS are reflecting on the "working-over" Morne Morkel gave Michael Clarke in Cape Town yesterday - just llike the days when West Indies had the most fearsome pace attack in the world. Simmons cuts a single past backward point, he moves to 39 from 64 balls.

  160. 26 overs: 
    WI 89-4 (Simmons 38*, DJ Bravo 4*)

    Simmons and Bravo plunder four singles against Bresnan, while Simmons again has to hurry on one of them as Ravi Bopara's throw hits the stumps. A confident hook shot from Bravo shows he seems to have no ill-effects from being plunked in the last over.

    Bravo is OK to continue, and is back under way with a single. Simmons pushes a cheeky single back towards the bowler's end, Moeen Ali dives on the square but his throw is just wide of the stumps when Simmons would have been well short.

    So, West Indies 85-4 at half way. They were 73-4 on Friday at the same stage, and still managed to score 269-6... England beware.

    OUCH!- WI 83-4

    As the West Indies innings draws towards the halfway point, Bravo is struck a nastty blow as he attempts to duck a bouncer from Broad and is hit on the left side of his neck, just under the helmet. The physio's on, and Bravo is lying back in some pain.

  165. 24 overs: 
    WI 83-4

    Simmons pulls Bresnan for a single, Dwayne Bravo is off the mark with a single, and England will remember well how this pair added 108 for the fifth wicket in Friday's first ODI. There's some great fancy dress on show in the crowd, though anyone out in the open in a full superhero outfit (I think I just spotted Bananaman) must be getting pretty sweaty.

  166. 15:04: 
    Also in the world of cricket...

    Play has been abandoned for the day in Cape Town, following the rain that blew in over Newlands in the afternoon session. Australia are 494-7 with captain Michael Clarke undefeated on 161.

    In the Asia Cup in Mirpur, Pakistan are pursuing 246 to beat India and are currently 179-4 with 10 overs remaining.

  167. 23 overs: 
    WI 81-4

    Bravo replaces Bravo as Darren is replaced by half-brother Dwayne, the Windies ODI captain. Broad has 1-14 from four overs.

    I'll give you the rest of the bowling figures at this stage - Root 2-15 from five, Moeen 1-11 from three, Tredwell 0-20 from five, Parry 0-13 from five, Bresnan 0-7 from one.

  168.   
    Derek Pringle, Ex-England all-rounder on BBC Test Match Special

    "Broad came around the wicket to the left-hander, it was a little tight to Bravo but you have to force runs in one-day cricket. The spinners kept it tight earlier, and Broad and Bresnan have kept the pressure on."

    England bowler Stuart Broad

    After a single from Simmons, Broad digs it in short, Bravo pulls and the ball top-edges between the bowler and mid-on when it could have gone anywhere. But Broad has his revenge when Bravo chops the ball onto his off stump while attempting a cut shot.

    WI 80-3 (DM Bravo 13*, Simmons 33*)

    Finally we get to see Big Tim in a bowling capacity... seamer Tim Bresnan in as England's sixth bowler, Simmons starts with a two, then launches a big bash over mid-on... and it bounces on the rope, or just in front of it. Four or six? Third ump Erasmus has a look, and it's signalled as four. A single brings up the fifty partnership (which Simmons has dominated), from 82 balls.

  172.   
    Derek Pringle, Ex-England all-rounder on BBC Test Match Special

    Regarding Ian Bell's call-up to England's T20 squad:

    "I got the impression from Ashley Giles that he felt he should have been in the squad anyway. He shot me a strange look when I put that to him yesterday! He's a sort of utility player, very experienced and an excellent player of spin and there is going to be a lot of that in the World T20."

  173. 21 overs: 
    WI 73-3
    West Indies batsman Lendl Simmons

    Drinks break over, and the music faded down for a little while, Stuart Broad is back into the attack in place of Tredwell, and it's a tight over from the skipper to Simmons, only a wide and a single to third man from it. Umpire Tucker has a look at the ball, but rules it's OK.

    DRINKS BREAK- WI 71-3

    England's spin bonanza continues as Parry is worked for a couple of singles, but England are quite lively in the field and have earned themselves a drinks break. A rather depressed-looking Chris Jordan, left out of the XI today, is carrying the drinks.

  179. 19 overs: 
    WI 69-3

    We're into the 19th over, and 17 of them have been spin - how often can you say that about an England ODI side? (At this rate, will Tim Bresnan even get to bowl?) Bravo tries to leg-glance Tredwell and they run a leg bye, while Simmons has forsaken his helmet and donned a cap with the spinners on - that's also a rarity in international cricket these days. The leg bye is the only score of the over - so it's two maidens on the trot.

    There's plenty of dancing in the stands and on the grassy banks, by English and West Indian fans alike, as Parry begins his fourth over, while there's someone in a full Iron Man suit in the pitchside pool. Parry hops and skips in, but he keeps Simmons under wraps and that's the Lancastrian's first maiden over in international cricket.

  182.

    Cap'n Broad shuffles his field, just the minimum five in the circle as Tredwell begins a new over to Bravo, who attempts a sweep, they run one but it's signalled as a wide. Simmons taps a single past the non-striker, Bravo rotates the strike and Simmons nurdles one to square leg. Tredwell has 0-20 from four overs, though 13 of those runs came in his third over.

  185. 16 overs: 
    WI 63-3

    Debutant Parry (who is wearing ODI shirt number 73, by the way) is cut for four by the powerful Simmons. who made 65 on Friday and has started well today. But Parry does well to keep it tight for the rest of the over.

  186.   
    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "That's was a very good over for West Indies and unusually high scoring off Tredwell. Simmons capitalised on a couple that were too short and Bravo came down the track, got to the pitch beautifully and smashed it, Lara-esque, over the long-on boundary. It was a gorgeous shot."

    Listen to Test Match Special commentary on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

  187. 15 overs: 
    WI 59-3 (DM Bravo 11*, Simmons 18*)

    Simmons threads a four through cover point, the outfield is quick and Moeen Ali gives chase but can't prevent the boundary. Tredwell responds by switching to bowling over the wicket but it's too short again and Simmons attempts the same shot - Moeen stops it in front of the rope on this occasion and they run three. Bravo attempts his lofted on-drive again, and this time it's into the stand for six. Probably West Indies' best over so far - 13 from it.

But another tight over by Tredwell.

  194. 12 overs: 
    WI 41-3

    It's time for the debutant - Stephen Parry, who England fans will hope has a better introduction to international cricket than his fellow Lancashire left-arm spinner Simon Kerrigan, who had a Test debut to forget at The Oval last summer. Simmons adds a single and a leg slip is brought in for the left-handed Bravo, who is off the mark with a tickle to fine leg. Simmons rotates the strike, Bravo guides one to deep square leg and Parry's first over has yielded four singles.

  195.   
    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "Parry has a good one-day record and knows the one-day game as opposed to a limited first-class career. This is his game and he's coming on at a very good time for England."

  196. 11 overs: 
    WI 37-3

    Having taken that catch, James Tredwell - England's number one spinner in this side - is into the attack, and Dwayne Bravo is facing for the first time, having been in for two or three overs. And Tredders doesn't disappoint as he spins down a maiden to Bravo.

    Lendl Simmons is the new man - England have two new batsmen to bowl at. Simmons nudges a two off his legs and takes a single off the last ball, his partner Bravo is yet to face.

  201.   
    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "Tredwell has one of the best pairs of hands in the England squad. The ball was there to drive but there was no foot movement, but Tredwell had no right to catch that. The spinners are on a roll."

    WICKET- Edwards c Tredwell b Root 9 (WI 30-3)

    Darren Bravo is the new batsman, he looks on as Edwards nibbles at Root and edges a catch to James Tredwell who takes it brilliantly one-handed at slip!

    This match is starting to mirror the first ODI, when West Indies slipped to 40-3 and then 45-4, although it all went wrong for England after that...

    Powell comes down the pitch to Moeen and drills a single to Bresnan who's now down at long-off, after dropping that catch at leg slip. Edwards guides a two off his legs as debutant Parry gives chase, then tips-and-runs a quick single to mid-off. The Windies pair are trying not to get bogged down against the two off-spinners, adding two more singles - but Powell, trying to force the pace, gives up a return catch to the delighted Moeen.

    Broad begins a new over, and has Powell prodding at thin air with two predatory slips awaiting that outside edge. But the left-hander reaches double figures with an assured off-driven four straight out of the MCC coaching manual. Steady.

  213. 3 overs: 
    DROPPED CATCH- WI 12-1

    Kirk Edwards is the new batsman, the slip has been joined by a leg slip. Edwards tries to guide one down the leg side and Tim Bresnan at leg slip gets a finger to it but can't hold on... having anticipated the ball would go to his left, he started to dive left but then had to change direction as the ball went to his right. So Edwards is off the mark with a single, Powell moves to six.

  214.   
    Sir Viv Richards, Ex-West Indies captain on BBC Test Match Special

    "I guess thinking back to that debate we had earlier about whether Joe Root should open the bowling, that was the reason he did again today. It was cleverly bowled, and his shot suggested that Dwayne Smith did not know what he wanted to do, and in the end he gave a very easy catch to short mid-wicket."

    APPEAL - NOT OUT- WI 10-0

    Captain Stuart Broad takes the second over - I thought he rather under-bowled himself on Friday, only sending down six overs and not bringing himself back when the chips were down in the last 10 overs. (I don't think I was alone in that view). Smith plays and misses, but then times the ball well by pushing a three through point which is only just stopped in front of the rope by the diving Ben Stokes. Powell is hit on the pad, there's an appeal... but Broad opts against using England's only DRS review. Just as well, as it pitched outside leg stump. A flashing cut shot brings Powell the first boundary of the innings.

    Jack Harrison, Archway: I'd have to say my nomination for 'Best Original Song' would be the Aussies singing 'Under the Southern Cross I Stand' on the wicket at the end of the Fifth Ashes Test.

  219. 1 over: 
    WI 3-0

    Young Root, bowling his right-arm off-spin over the wicket with a slip in, is clubbed for a single to deep mid-wicket by the right-handed Dwayne Smith. Meanwhile, the left-handed Kieran Powell flicks a single off his legs. A third gentle single rounds off a tidy over.

    Stephen Parry

    Stephen Parry is a 28-year-old graduate of Lancashire's academy who turned out for Cumberland before making his first-class debut for Lancs in 2007. To say he's a one-day specialist would be an understatement, having played 54 List A one-day games and 56 Twenty20s so far in his career, compared to just six first-class outings.

    A left-arm spinner, Parry has taken 65 wickets in those 54 limited-overs games at an average of 28.93, with an economy rate of 4.98 and a best return of 5-17. A right-handed batsman, Parry averages 14.80 at a strike rate of 79.85.

  226.   
    Derek Pringle, Ex-England all-rounder on BBC Test Match Special

    "I was little bit surprised England put West Indies in again with three spinners in the side. I was surprised they made the same decision the other day. I've never seen Stephen Parry bowl a ball - just in the nets. I did make a few enquires about him when he got picked. His selection over Samit Patel surprised me."

    I'll start you off with a couple. Best Performance in a Leading Role - Brendon McCullum, who's been very impressive since taking over as New Zealand skipper, both as a batsman and a captain. And Best Performance in a Supporting Role - anyone who shelled out hard-earned cash to follow England in the Ashes down under.

    England captain Stuart Broad: "We're desperate for a win but we're not thinking too far ahead, we want to get the first 10 overs right and then go from there. We had some big positives from Friday with Michael [Lumb] and hopefully he continues with his fantastic form."

    Graeme Swann, Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    On Twitter: I've promised Colly that I'll give him a signal if Sunderland score/win today. Any suggestions as to what this signal should be?

    Swanny's a Newcastle fan, as you might know. I wonder what he makes of Alan Pardew's headbutt yesterday?

    TOSS & TEAM NEWS

    Stuart Broad calls "heads" correctly - England win the toss and field. Spinner Stephen Parry makes his debut, with paceman Chris Jordan omitted.

    Windies captain Dwayne Bravo is happy as he wanted to bat first. They make one change - "the left-arm spinner" (by which I presume he means Nikita Miller, though he doesn't name him) replaces giant pace bowler Jason Holder.

  237. 13:01: 

    News of the toss as we get it - but we're hearing from our colleagues at Test Match Special that Lancashire spinner Stephen Parry will be making his England debut.

  238. 13:00: 
    Moeen Ali and Michael Lumb

    Let's be positive though - there were some promising signs from England, as openers Michael Lumb (106) and Moeen Ali (44) didn't look as though they were only making their ODI debuts, while James Tredwell bowled very well (as did Joe Root until he was kept on an over too long).

    And a bit of news you may not have heard - Ian Bell has been summoned to the Caribbean to reinforce the T20 squad because of the injuries to Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan. Even though he's not played a T20 international since 2011...

  239. 12:55: 

    Afternoon, everyone. England's "ODI series with a mostly-T20 squad, mostly" continues apace today, with the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua playing host to the second ODI in a three-match series.

    If England's performances in the Ashes and one-dayers in Australia are still keeping you awake at night in a cold sweat, I'm afraid it was more of the same in the first game on Friday as they surrendered a strong position when well placed in both innings. Surely it must beg better soon?
