  1. Goodbye!

    Not quite as clinical as Friday, but that's a job well done for England. They take an 2-0 series lead with one game left to play in Barbados.

    We'll be back on Thursday to talk you through the final ODI.

    Thanks a lot for your company - until then...

    Chris Woakes & Joe Root
  2. 'We want to win all three games'

    England captain Eoin Morgan: " I thought the bowlers did an outstanding job again, building on what we did on Friday. In the field we were a bit sloppy and the chase wasn't ideal. We knew it would be tough.

    "Jason Roy played well at the start but where we lost a few wickets was a bit of a concern. But the partnership of 106 between your opening bowler and best batsman - you have to take your hat off to them. 

    "Woakes is a guy who keeps giving to the team and a man who often goes without the majority of the praise and that's just his character. We don't want to rely on him too much but he is a luxury down the bottom of the order. 

    "We want to win all three games, we will be putting out our best eleven in Barbados." 

  3. 'Chris played exceptionally well'

    More from man of the match Joe Root:  "It was about being patient and accepting the odd over where you might only get one or two runs.

    "I thought Chris played exceptionally well. He took a lot of pressure off me at the other end. I think that's a sign of good side, where you don't just rely on one player."

  4. Man of the match - Joe Root

    Joe Root is man of the match for his unbeaten 90. He gets a giant cheque for his troubles, which he struggles to keep hold of.

    "We all thought Jason Roy played exceptionally well at the top. He sets the tone and takes the pressure off the guys coming after him," he says.

    "I wanted to stay calm. We only needed four an over. If a couple of us could bat for 10 overs, we knew we would win the game. "

  5. 'It's a disappointing feeling'

    West Indies captain Jason Holder: "It's a disappointing feeling, getting so close. We dropped chances, that's one area we need to improve. In batting, we need some partnerships to set us up nicely. We need to adjust and go forward from here. 

    "We just have to know when it is time to seize an opportunity. We had some opportunities but we turned them down, some soft dismissals. 

    "It was tough to lose one of your main bowlers (Shannon Gabriel) and it turned out we really needed him back. You have to fight with what you have."

  6. 'Application and mindset isn't there'

    In both matches, West Indies have got to the 40 over mark with wickets in hand, good batters in the tank and they just seem to completely throw it away. I don't know how they deal with that - it's not that they are not capable, but their application and mindset isn't there. 

  7. Post update

    West Indies captain Jason Holder is currently speaking. He's disappointed in the chances his side let go to waste. "We had some opportunities early and we put them down - and some soft dismissals with the bat."

    He also says it was tough to lose Shannon Gabriel when they did. The bowler picked up a side strain and was forced to watch from the sidelines.

    Dave:  Victory snatched from the jaws of defeat from the jaws of victory. Take the win all day long!

    Edward Taylor: Love how Joe Root has been unselfish sacrificing going for his century to get the win for the team. 

  9. 'Windies gave wickets away'

    This morning, with West Indies winning the toss and getting chance to bat, I thought it might relieve some pressure and they would be able to play with freedom without a target in mind, but it didn't. It's just, again, a lot of wickets being given away. 

  10. Post update

    Chris Woakes is very much the man of the match for me. He gave nothing away with the ball, applying that early pressure and finishing with figures of 8-1-26-0, before stepping in to rescue England with the bat.

  12. 'This is what good teams do'

    Ebony Rainford-Brent

    Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

    Not as clinical as the first game but a good show of fight and showing how deep England bat. Woakes has come in and played with freedom. 

    We also saw Jason Roy play some expansive shots early on. Well done to England, this is what good teams do - even if you have that wobble, you are able to rebuild and go again. 

  13. Post update

    An unbroken stand of 102 too. Given that England were wobbling at 124-6, having lost four wickets for 16 runs in a frantic period, their calm approach was just what the visitors needed.

  14. Post update

    Joe Root unbeaten on 90, Chris Woakes on 68. It's been a cracking all-round performance from Woakes, who is starting to show what an important cricketer he is to this England side. There's shoulder bumps for everyone as they leave the field.

  15. England win by four wickets

    Root 90, Woakes 68

    And there we go! A fist pump from Joe Root as he works Kraigg Braithwate away for a single through point. Handshakes all round as England take an unassailable 2-0 series lead.

  16. Post update

    The 101 partnership came up from 140 balls. These two really yanked England out of trouble.

  17. Eng 225-6

    Ooh, that's gorgeous from Jason Holder! A nice leg cutter, Woakes gets himself all squared up and can only grin at the West Indies captain. One run to win, two overs to get it.

  18. Eng 225-6

    Woakes 68, Root 89

    Shot! That's lovely from Chris Woakes. He got turned over twice by Jason Holder's slower ball, before deciding to swing his arms. Up and over the ball goes, a lofted drive sending the ball flying into the advertising boards. That brings up the 100 partnership too, and England need just one run to win.

    Granted, it would probably wouldn't have made any difference to the game but West Indies are guilty of dropping chances. 

  20. Eng 219-6

    Woakes 62, Root 89

    Another floaty off-spinner from Kraigg Brathwaite is worked obligingly away by Chris Woakes. Seven runs from 18 deliveries needed. Granted, it's not thrilling. Clinical, some might say.
