W Indies vs England
England win by five runs!
A cracking finish to a brilliant game of Twenty20 cricket. England avoid a series whitewash and West Indies have to settle with a 2-1 victory
Over 20 - Dot!
Sammy gets some bat on a ball which would have been another wide. No run
19.5 - Wide!
Short and wide! Six to win now...
19.5 - Dot!
Brilliant slower ball from Dernbach. Sammy misses, swinging off his feet. Six needed for a super over...
Over 19.4 - Six!
Sammy hooks a bouncer from Dernbach into the stands! Seven needed from two balls. Not over yet...
Simmons run out 69
Dernbach hits Sammy with a bouncer, West Indies scamper one and come back for two on an overthrow but Ali's throw is spot on and Simmons is well short. One run collected. 13 needed from three
Over 19.2 - 1
A slower ball deceives Simmons, who can only collect one out to deep midwicket. Sammy on strike. 14 needed from four...
Over 19.1 - 2
Simmons slashes the first ball over extra cover for two. 15 needed off five
Over 19 - West Indies 149-6 (Simmons 66, Sammy 8)
Well, well, well. Game on here again as Sammy sends his first two deliveries to the boundary (sandwiched by a wide). 17 needed off the last over. Simmons on strike, Dernbach the bowler. Sit tight...
Ramdin bld Jordan 33 (21)
Guess who?! Jordan sends Ramdin's leg stump cartwheeling with a full, straight delivery. Sammy comes to the middle with 26 needed off eight balls...
Over 18 - West Indies 134-5 (Simmons 65, Ramdin 28)
A fine finishing over from Bopara, who ends with figures of 2-28. A very under-rated operator with the ball. Eight runs off the over after Ramdin pulled past Morgan, who Bopara believed to be in the wrong position out on the boundary. 32 more needed from the last two overs. Jordan to bowl this one, Dernbach the last...
Over 17 - West Indies 126-5 (Simmons 64, Ramdin 22)
Simmons has taken charge here and it's get rather nerve-racking out in Barbados. After slashing a boundary through the covers off Dernbach's first ball, Simmons then clears the rope when he reads a slower ball and pulls it over midwicket for six! Another 13-run over. 40 needed from 18 balls
Over 16 - West Indies 113-5 (Simmons 52, Ramdin 21)
Simmons is playing a little gem for West Indies here and reaches 50 with a cheeky flick past fine-leg, who is up inside the circle. Ramdin also found the rope in that Jordan over, meaning 13 came off it and West Indies are still in business. 53 required from 24 balls
Over 15 - West Indies 99-5 (Simmons 45, Ramdin 16)
Bopara delivers for England under pressure. Only three runs taken from him in that over as Ramdin and Simmons fail to get hold of a mixture of cutters and bang-in balls. 67 required from 30 balls...
Over 14 - West Indies 96-5 (Simmons 43, Ramdin 15)
Fabulous footwork and placement from Ramdin, who skips down and lofts Parry inside-out over extra cover. Parry comes back well again and ends with 0-32 from his four-over allocation. 70 needed from the final six overs
Over 13 - West Indies 88-5 (Simmons 41, Ramdin 9)
Ramdin and then Simmons go some way to repairing the damage caused by Bopara's previous over by taking his second for 17 runs. Too short from Ravi, who is pulled for six for Ramdin before being cut for successive fours by Simmons. 78 required off 42...
Over 12 - West Indies 71-5 (Simmons 32, Ramdin 1)
Tredwell finishes with typically stingy figures of 0-18 off his four overs. He almost ends with a wicket but Simmons gets just enough bat on his top-edged sweep to lob the fielder and scamper two runs
Over 11 - West Indies 67-5 (Simmons 29, Ramdin 0)
Just the over England needed and West Indies didn't. Bopara actually sent down a lot of ordinary deliveries but picked up two wickets and conceded just one run! Ramdin is the new man and joins Simmons with work to do
Russell ct Morgan bld Bopara 0 (2)
Two in the over for Bopara! A horrible shot from Russell, spooned straight up and Morgan takes a simple catch at cover
Bravo ct Jordan bld Bopara 16 (19)
Jordan is at it again, this time in the field! Bravo flicks a short ball from new bowler Bopara out towards deep square-leg and Jordan runs, dives and plucks it out low down. Big moment in the match!
