0.3FOURBadree to Hales, FOUR, that has been dispatched, just a hint of room outside off, Hales latches onto it quickly and cuts it well wide of the fielder to deep backward point, he's off the mark with a confident shot!5/0
2OUTSantokie to Lumb, out Lbw!! Oh Lumb has missed a low full-toss here, he is very unfortunate on that occasion as he seemed to have got an inside edge, it was a low full-toss on off and middle, Lumb moves far too across to the off side and misses out on the clip shot, he was struck low on the pads right in front of the stumps, the only doubt was if he had got an inside edge and the replays confirms just that and Lumb was not happy as he walked off. Lumb lbw b Santokie 4(4)13/1
3.2FOURSantokie to Moeen Ali, FOUR, first boundary off his T20I career, full and sliding into the pads, Moeen Ali gets across the stumps and clips it away to backward square leg21/1
3.3OUTSantokie to Moeen Ali, out Lbw!! Santokie has snared another one with an excellent change of pace, slow off-cutter from him, Moeen shuffles across to the off side and plays down the wrong line, the ball cuts back in to strike him in front of off and middle, excellent start for West Indies and the debutant departs with a major contribution. Moeen Ali lbw b Santokie 5(7) [4s-1]21/2
5OUTBadree to Eoin Morgan, out Caught by Simmons!! The stand-in skipper departs, England are in tatters, poor shot selection from the experienced Morgan, it was well tossed up on middle, Morgan goes for the sweep shot, but gets a top edge high in the air towards deep square leg, where Simmons doesn't move an inch and takes a comfortable catch. Eoin Morgan c Simmons b Badree 3(7)26/3
