Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

End of Over No.48 Windies 389/10 This Over (2 runs)

6.15pm: My giddy aunt… I think we all need a glass of milk and a sit down. Luckily there’s a Test match on over in Hamilton, cricket’s equivalent of a chill-out zone. Grenada certainly pulled the pin, we’ve just seen a bonkers match, but Valkerie has done her best to sum it up in the report. Thanks for tuning in, we’ll be back for more when the teams meet again in St Lucia on Saturday. Cheerio!

6pm: Presentations time, starting with Jason Holder: “Definitely, the guys stuck to it and gave a good effort, credit to Chris, batting the way he batted was outstanding an unfortunately we couldn’t get there in the end. It was a good surface to bat on, both teams struggled to contain. Credit to both sides. Buttler was outstanding at the end. We had to go at it, we had a good start and kept momentum going, but we weren’t able to get there at the end. Not to die wondering. We had to go out, knew what we need to keep up with. A few guys kicked on, really good to see support for Chris. Right up there, to be at the top of the innings, two new ball, hit’s commendable. To get 10,000 runs in any format of cricket is something special.”

Buttler is named Man of the Match: “It was an incredible game. Put under a lot of pressure, Chris played a fantastic innings, but delighted with a win. [Your innings?] Fantastic, we talked on the bench about having a right-left combo, being able to attack one side all the time, so managed to sneak up the order and make the most of it. Been tough for the bowlers, in Barbados as well, the wind makes a huge difference. Guys work hard on range hitting, all around the world these days, we have a powerful line-up and have been utilising that well over the last few years. Had three fantastic games so far, sure it will be a great game in St Lucia.”

England captain Eoin Morgan: “Hell of a game, hope people enjoyed it. We went toe to toe with the West Indies. We were fortunate with that spell from Adil to get us over the line. We needed something special. I thought as a group we batted brilliantly, it brought the best out of all of us. Bairstow and Hales laid the platform and gave me and Jos and chance to build a partnership. Jos is like a champions race horse and watching him in full flow is something. But I thought West Indies played so well and gave it their all. Lot of people talk about them being No9 in the world, but there’s not a huge deal between the teams. They turned us over in the last game and have gone toe to toe with us. They are a strong side. Adil is an extremely strong asset, can bowl anywhere in the 50 overs and he has his variations. He got rhythm and purchase off the pitch. To come back and bowl an over where he takes three wickets and wins us the game is outstanding. This was such a close game,it could have gone either way. We were fighting a tough battle. The more games we play under pressure, stay calm and execute, the better for us.”

5.50pm: Jeepers, I did not see that coming! West Indies were right in it, with three overs to go… and then Adil Rashid takes 4 for 0! We’ve seen 807 runs, a world record 46 sixes, and a couple of excellent bits of bowling, between Rashid at the end and Mark Wood, who was a one-man show for England early on. Chris Gayle crunched a 55-ball hundred, Jos Buttler made his highest ODI score, Morgan reached three figures, too, West Indies made their highest total, and that barely begins to cover the madness. England, after all that, are 2-1 up in the series.

Jos Buttler is collared straight away before he can get off the field: “Unbelievable game of cricket. Being put under huge pressure, we showed character to come through, For Adil to bowl that over at that time, it was special. We just needed wickets. If Chris Gayle batted for long enough they were going to win. I thought Mark Wood was outstanding, and I like the way Adil wants the ball in those situations. It’s a great dress rehearsal, lots of pressure, You can lose those games and the guys did well to stand up to ti. [Innings?] Really special, I really enjoyed it, when you feel you get into that zone, it’s really pleasing. Joe Root said we need north of 350, so with 12-13 overs to go, we tried to kick on.”

Charlie: “Most expensive 5-for ever??” Looks like it
