Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

4.15pm: Well, who saw that one coming? England go to the Caribbean as favourites… England get handed their backsides. It’s becoming a theme. Still, there are two Tests in which to try and turn it around. Two Tests in which West Indies will be aiming to confirm their supremacy – you couldn’t ask for more, really. Anyway, Valkerie’s report will be in the slot imminently and Miller and I will start stretching off for the second Test, starting at the Sir Viv Stadium on Thursday. England have been properly splattered at the old fortress of Bridgetown… just imagine if they had come up against this lot! That’s it from us for now, I’ll let Davo have the last word. Cheerio!

Davo: “Every time England has a series against Windies (since 2000) they always mention the Ashes… They always make it look like it’s a trial series… Well take that and enjoy… Caribbean Fiyah!”

4pm: Right, ready for some presentations? First time England have lost a Test with Sam Curran in the side, by the way… Question is, will he still be in it come Antigua? One for England captain Joe Root, perhaps: “Bitterly disappointed we’re a far better side than played this week, got to keep remembering how well we have played in the past and it’s crucial to bounce back quickly and strongly. Shown character in turning things around before, hopefully we can do that again. [Wrong call on team?] After a match it’s easy to make selection calls, when you see how the pitch plays. Yes, we could have gone down a different route, but that doesn’t change the way we played, we’re a far better side, got to make sure we turn up in Antigua and perform. We have to come back hard, be ready for everything West Indies throw at us. Fair play to them, they played extremely good cricket over the four days. We’ve got to make sure we’re a far better team, continue the hard work and go about things on the field as we have done in practice.”

West Indies captain Jason Holder is named Man of the Match: “Really good for me personally, been a while since I’ve played, sitting out the series in Bangladesh was tough, really pleased with how I’ve come back, getting back to full fitness. [Celebrations for double-hundred?] Lot bubbling up for a long time, had the moment to express myself for a bit… To help Shane get to his hundred as well, and credit to Roston Chase today, he was patient and got the ball in the right areas. [Emotions?] Extremely special, just want to say thanks to mum and dad, and to my step-mum, also to my two brothers, lots to be proud of. [What next?] One Test match doesn’t make a summer, been in this position before so lots of hard work to be done. It’s a matter of turning up in Antigua and doing the same.”

3.45pm: Jason Holder is a giant among mortals as he walks from the field, holding a stump aloft. Roston Chase poses with the ball that secured him career-best figures. There’ll be pats on the back for Shimron Hetmyer, who blazed throughout (and took a snorting catch at short leg) and Kemar Roach, who lit the fire under England on day two. England know what it’s like to take a beating in the Caribbean, but this is right up there – their second-heaviest defeat to West Indies, in terms of runs alone. Holder’s team are taking a tour of the ground to salute the fans – West Indies go 1-0 up in the series and England, if they didn’t before, know they are in a contest now!

“Holder and Dowrich made 323 runs in this test match, the same as the entire England team,” scoffs Rathang Joshi. “And they were not out in the second innings.” Yep, it’s a thrashing!

“England lose last 9 wkts for 112 runs,” Pradeep D, “a small-scale collapse as per their standards on a day Australia achieved an innings win.” They certainly fell away from a promising start, given them by Rory Burns. Good to see the Ashes phoney war is already up and running

Here’s Burli: “I liken this England team to a funfair containing a mix of rollercoasters that launch you to high-heights immediately followed by extreme plunges, stalls selling fast food with a kick but no fibre and finally a healthy smattering of horror shows.”

“Eight wickets for a part time spinner. This is how we feel when Moeen Ali takes wickets against India,” snickers Mevij

80.4 W Chase to Curran down the leg side, Curran walks past it to be stumped – and West Indies have won by 381 runs! Chase gets his eight-for, and the Windies have blown England away in Barbados! Neat bit of work by Hope, the back-up keeper, too, emphasising how big a gap there has been between the two teams here OUT
SM Curran st †Hope b Chase 17 (38m 25b 3×4 0x6) SR: 68.00
80.3 4 Chase to Curran tossed up wide of the stumps, Curran reaches out and smears four through the covers FOUR
80.2 0 Chase to Curran uses the feet and blocks no run
80.1 0 Chase to Curran angled in and defended by Curran coming down no run

The new ball is due… but Roston Chase probably feels he’s due another

End of Over No.80 England 242/9 Last Over (5 runs)

All over bar the warbling. Here’s a gallery of the action so far.

79.6 0 Campbell to Anderson darted on off stump, Anderson taps it away no run
79.5 0 Campbell to Anderson tossed up and blocked coming forwards no run
79.4 0 Campbell to Anderson tries to reverse-sweep, this ends up at slip, there’s an appeal for lbw, too… and West Indies decide to review! Lots going on, Kumar Dharmasena will have to unpack it all. Not sure he’s actually made contact with the ball, although there’s a possibility it deflected off the glove as the bat came around. Nothing on UltraEdge but it could be close on lbw – no, it’s umpire’s call on impact, and he was 2.5m down the pitch, too: all of which means it stays with the on-field decision! Got all that? no run
79.3 0 Campbell to Anderson pushes this back down the track no run
79.2 4 Campbell to Anderson tossed up and smacked through square leg, unfurls the slog-sweep, he likes that shot… and away it goes FOUR

Ronny: “Chase should be considered for MoM. Half century, 7* wickets.” Aye, he’s a candidate

79.1 1 Campbell to Curran floated up on the stumps and Curran again dinks a single through midwicket from the first ball 1 run

End of Over No.79 England 237/9 Last Over (1 run)

“Think Holder wants these overs done quick, get the new ball to wrap it up.” Ah, good spot, Simar Varaich. One more over until it’s available

78.6 0 Chase to Anderson tossed up and blocked no run
78.5 0 Chase to Anderson gives this a bit more flight, spins away past the outside edge no run

“As great as Holder’s knock was, West Indies had already won the match even before he came to bat,” muses Calcu20. “Roach is my choice for Man of the Match.”

78.4 0 Chase to Anderson floated up and defended coming forwards no run
78.3 0 Chase to Anderson floated up a touch wider and he has a go at this one, a mighty mow across the line, fails to connect no run
78.2 0 Chase to Anderson pushed through and defended resolutely on off stump no run
78.1 1 Chase to Curran floated up on the stumps and stabbed through midwicket for a single off the first ball 1 run

Chase wheels away, an eight-for in his sights

End of Over No.78 England 236/9 Last Over (1 run)

77.6 0 Campbell to Anderson angled in and Anderson plunges forward to smother the ball no run
77.5 0 Campbell to Anderson turned to the leg side no run
77.4 0 Campbell to Anderson floated up and blocked coming forwards no run
77.3 0 Campbell to Anderson lobbed up and pushed into the off side no run
77.2 1 Campbell to Curran Curran flicks the ball into a gap 1 run
77.1 0 Campbell to Curran tossed up and defended no run

Hmmm, this is odd… John Campbell to bowl. Gabriel was feeling his toe, but it’s not like the light is bad. Does Holder or Joseph not want a cheap wicket?

End of Over No.77 England 235/9 Last Over (1 run)

“Undoubtedly Jason Holder, when he arrived at the crease during second innings Windies were turbulent and England had every chance to be back in the game and then holder happened.” Zuhaib javeeda casts his MOM vote

76.6 0 Chase to Anderson Jimmy shows it a straight bat once again no run
76.5 0 Chase to Anderson tossed up and defended in front of the stumps no run

The close catchers come back in

76.4 1 Chase to Curran flicked away through backward square leg 1 run
76.3 0 Chase to Curran flat offbreak from round the wicket, defended no run
76.2 0 Chase to Curran poked back down the track no run

James Anderson to the middle, Curran on strike as they crossed… No wonder West Indies had dispensed with close catchers for Rashid

76.1 W Chase to Rashid wristy whip over midwicket, could go all the way… No, he’s picked out the fielder! He’s right on the rope, has to juggle the ball but Brathwaite does it well – although, the boundary marker had actually been moved, and he did stand on the line where it was resting previously. Dharmasena is happy enough, anyway, and England are nine down OUT
AU Rashid c Brathwaite b Chase 1 (11m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Just a slip and short leg for Rashid

End of Over No.76 England 234/8 Last Over (6 runs)

75.6 0 Gabriel to Curran round the wicket, shortish at 143kph/89mph as Curran hops across and blocks square no run

Here’s Rajaguru: “Come on lets talk about MOM my choice is Roach.” Erm, what about the double-centurion who has also taken two wickets and held three catches?

75.5 1 Gabriel to Rashid over the wicket, short ball, Rashid rocks back and pulls pretty comfortably 1 run

Who will Win England tour of West Indies, 1st Test: West Indies v England ?

With ten nearly equally matched groups, the importance of every game can’t be understated in this tournament. Both sides are expected to emerge out packaged full-strength against each other in what claims to be a cracker of a competition. Contemplating that the 2 sides on newspaper,England are somewhat more power-packed unit whereas West Indies possess the benefit of being a steady side. For this and another above-mentioned motives, we believe the England are far more likely to emerge victorious in what will be among the most crucial experiences for either side.
