Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

6.25pm: There we have it, England receive the trophy while being sheltered with a couple of umbrellas, a soggy end to a rather flat T20I series. But this has been an epic tour, from the majesty of Holder’s double-hundred in Barbados, through to 800-plus runs in the Grenada ODI, and the shenanigans of the last few days. Valkerie’s report should be working its way through the system, and there’ll be more from George at the ground to wrap things up. Both teams get a bit of a break now, but we’ll be back for more soon. Our thanks for your contributions, as always; from Miller and myself, Raghav, Ranjith and the scorers, it’s cheerio for now. Bye!

6.10pm: Here we go, then, starting with West Indies captain Jason Holder: “I don’t think it’s a drop in intensity, we just didn’t bat well in these two games. We have to give England credit as well, they bowled well and stuck to their plans. When we’re batting, we’ve got to learnt to adapt, set it up for our middle-to-lower half. A case of working on our death bowling and our fielding, too. It was a good tour, we won the Tests, and drew the ODIs, weren’t at our best here, continuing with the ODI squad. But I’m pretty pleased as skipper, plenty of positives and lots to learn. Our next assignment is in Ireland, looking forward to that.”

David Willey is named Man of the Match: “It was nice, my role up front is to take the new ball, I didn’t swing it but forced some errors from the West Indians. [Push World Cup case?] When I come out and play I try and do my best, it’s a different format but as long as I’m taking wickets [that’s good]. Swing and variations are the key for me, I try and take wickets in the Powerplay, that’s my role and when I do that it’s a bonus.”

Chris Jordan is the Man of the Series: “Personally it was a good series, came in looking to have a bit of fun and managed to get some wickets along the way. I thought everyone played well, to bowl out a team of that quality twice for under 100 is pretty good. I was able to show different skills different times, banged a length in the second game, used my variations in the first and that worked. [World Cup pecking order?] Not thinking about it, one day at a time, let the process take care of itself.”

And finally, with a sudden burst of rain interrupting things in Basseterre, England captain Eoin Morgan: “I don’t think you can fault us for may things, we’ve played extremely well over the three games. Guys have come in and taken the limelight and that’s outstanding. Sam Billings, Joe Denly, Chris Jordan and today was about David Willey, so guys have put their hands up and that’s really exciting. The more we’ve played in the West Indies, naturally you get better, a learning process and adaptation that you go through.”

6pm: Well, that was a bit of an anticlimax. West Indies had been very, very good throughout England’s visit, until about this time on Friday evening, when they began their innings in the second T20I (they were unbeaten in 20-over games in St Kitts until then, remember). This was apparently the fourth-shortest T20I ever, excluding matches with reduced overs. England take the series 3-0, of course, and can head home in good heart; West Indies on the other hand will be looking to consign this quickly to the rubbish bin of history, and focus on their World Cup preparations. While we wait for the presentations, which could take almost as long as the match, here’s a (rogues) gallery of the action.

10.3 4 Bishoo to Morgan floated up on leg stump and Morgan sweeps it hard and flat for four, meaning England win by eight wickets! FOUR
10.2 6 Bishoo to Morgan tosses up the googly, Morgan steps out and chips down the ground for six! Only just clears the rope, but that’s all it has to do SIX
10.1 1 Bishoo to Root flighted, on middle and leg, nudged down the ground 1 run

Halfway through the overs. England still needing 11 to win…

End of Over No.10 England 61/2 This Over (1 run)

9.6 0 Campbell to Morgan oh, this beats everything! Round the wicket and angled in, turns sharply and misses the top of off! Campbell has his head in his hands, so close to a wicket on debut no run
9.5 1 Campbell to Root tossed up on the stumps and tapped down the ground to long-on 1 run
9.4 0 Campbell to Root this spins a touch, hits the front pad and Campbell asks the question… Root is thinking about a run but is then sent back, could be tight at the batsman’s end, but the underarm shy is off target no run
9.3 0 Campbell to Root darted in on the stumps, Root happy to defend no run
9.2 0 Campbell to Root floated up and clipped to mid-on without any power no run
9.1 0 Campbell to Root lobbed up and worked off the pads no run

John Campbell to bowl, England still need 12

End of Over No.9 England 60/2 This Over (wicket maiden)

Here’s PhilFour: “ENG and NZ were 60/2 each at the same moment in time. Of course, took NZ 3+ days to get there.” Suspect they’ll be playing on for a bit longer in Wellington, too

8.6 0 Bishoo to Morgan quicker delivery, the legbreak turning just a touch as Morgan goes back and is beaten… A wicket-maiden for Bishoo, keeping things, er, interesting no run
8.5 0 Bishoo to Morgan floated up around off, pushed into the covers no run
8.4 0 Bishoo to Morgan flighted, another wrong’un and Morgan blocks on leg stump no run
8.3 0 Bishoo to Morgan pushed through and tapped into the off side no run

Short leg is in

8.2 0 Bishoo to Morgan googly from Bishoo, goes back to pull and fails to lay bat on ball no run

Out comes Eoin Morgan. Two sixes to finish it?

Vinod Rajpal: “Bairstow has an chance for his 4th T20I fifty !!” Not any more he doesn’t

8.1 W Bishoo to Bairstow flights the legbreak, grips and turns – hits the top of off! Stump out of the ground! Bairstow is beaten playing back and West Indies have their second wicket, with England needing a mere 12 to win. Woot! OUT
JM Bairstow b Bishoo 37 (32m 31b 4×4 2×6) SR: 119.35

Devendra Bishoo replaces Holder

End of Over No.8 England 60/1 This Over (11 runs)

7.6 1 Allen to Bairstow punched through mid-on coming down 1 run
7.5 0 Allen to Bairstow darted, straighter line, worked off the pads no run
7.4 6 Allen to Bairstow floated up, YJB saunters out, dumps it over long-on! Mind the windows! They were scrambling for cover up on the balcony, there SIX
7.3 0 Allen to Bairstow dropped into the off side, early call of “No!” no run
7.2 0 Allen to Bairstow pushed through on off stump and defended no run
7.1 4 Allen to Bairstow flat and wide of the stumps, YJB shows a deft touch as he opens up and guides it behind point for four – brings up the England 50, two-thirds of the way there now FOUR

End of Over No.7 England 49/1 This Over (10 runs)

6.6 0 Holder to Root on the stumps, blocked calmly back towards mid-on no run
6.5 1 Holder to Bairstow full of a length, 134kph/83mph and Bairstow flicks it fine for one 1 run

“Just to follow up on the comments regarding Curran earlier, especially with your reference to the WT20… Surely memories of Eden Park are enough to ensure he’s in the squad. Whats the point of getting to the final if you don’t win?!” Can’t disagree with you, dez. Jordan and Curran at the death would be pretty handy

6.4 0 Holder to Bairstow back of a length, tapped down into the leg side no run
6.3 6 Holder to Bairstow dug in, the ball sits up to be slotted over the rope at deep backward square leg! Smoked into the grass banks for six SIX
6.3 1 Holder to Bairstow fired full down the leg side 1 wide
6.2 1 Holder to Root length ball, sliding into the pads as Holder goes up for lbw… must have been a scrap of bat involved 1 run
6.1 1 Holder to Bairstow dropped! Short and pulled, hard and flat to Hetmyer at deep square leg, who almost took it in the gob running in! Pretty straightforward chance, but butchered. He’s not had a good few days in the field, this lad 1 run

Holder to bowl the 20th over of the day

End of Over No.6 England 39/1 This Over (9 runs)

That’s the Powerplay done with. Could have been better, I suppose. Looks like we might actually get a full 20 overs in though (for the match)

5.6 0 Allen to Root pushed through and swatted towards backward point no run
5.5 0 Allen to Root clipped back down the track, no run as Allen gives chase no run
