2FOURBroad to K Powell, FOUR, nicely done by Powell, this was short and just outside off, Powell gets on top of the bounce and crunches it square on the off-side, Stokes gives a good chase but the ball beats him to the ropes10/0
2.1OUTJ Root to Dwayne Smith, out Caught by L Wright!! Tame dismissal for Smith, Root came from round the wicket and tossed one on to Smith's pads, he went for the instinctive flick, does not get on top of the bounce and offers a straight-forward catch to Wright placed at short mid-wicket. He kicks the turf with the bat in disgust, West Indies have lost an early wicket. Dwayne Smith c L Wright b J Root 5(9)10/1
3.5FOURBroad to K Powell, FOUR, lovely shot, Broad floated one well outside off, Powell gets a big stride forward and caresses it through extra cover, no need to run for those16/1
8OUTMoeen Ali to K Powell, out Caught&Bowled!! Another simple dismissal and West Indies have lost both openers. This was tossed up gently on middle, Powell was looking to work it towards the on-side, he did not account for the spin though, ends up getting a leading edge and offers a simple return catch to the bowler. K Powell c and b Moeen Ali 16(20) [4s-2]30/2
8.2OUTJ Root to K Edwards, out Caught by Tredwell!! That is a stunner from Tredwell at 1st slip, pure reflex on that occassion, and West Indies find themselves in heaps of bother. This was pushed through quickly by Root, Edwards was looking to dab it past the lone slip, gets a thick edge in doing so. The ball was travelling and to the right of the fielder, Tredwell sticks his right hand and completes a stunner. K Edwards c Tredwell b J Root 9(21)30/3

22.4OUTBroad to Darren Bravo, out Bowled!! Chopped on. Bravo's misery has ended.

Darren Bravo b Broad 13(34) [6s-1]81/4
31.2FOURStokes to Dwayne Bravo, FOUR, tad fuller and well outside off, Bravo gets forward and drills it back past the bowler, too fast for the tumbling mid-off fielder as well109/4

Bravo was stranded well outside the crease, Buttler removed the bails, but it looked like the ball slipped out of his hands in doing so. The 3rd umpire has many looks, he then presses the RED button.

32OTHERRampaul to Broad, no run, excellent short ball from Rampaul, but equally well played by Broad. This was short and on the stumps, honing on Broad's body, he did extremely well to get his gloves and bat out of the way as he ducked into it105/7
