Windies won by 26 runs
BALL BY BALL
West Indies have levelled the ODI series at 1-1 after a dramatic 26 run victory over England in Barbados. For large parts of the chase it seemed as though the tourists would cruise to the target, but inspired bowling by Jason Holder and Sheldon Cottrell sparked wild scenes at the Kensington Oval. Three wickets in the space of five balls from the skipper gave the hosts a glimmer of hope, before Cottrell returned to secure a maiden ODI five wicket haul. Half centuries from Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes weren't enough for England as no one went on to make a winning contribution with the bat. The match was set up for the Windies by a scintillating century from Shimron Hetmyer earlier in the day, he held things together with maturity before unleashing at the death. With the series now square, the Third ODI on Monday in Grenada is sure to be another quality contest.

46.6 - S Cottrell to M Wood
Back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Bishoo.
Another one, Cottrell has a maiden ODI five wicket haul at a vital time for the Windies. Moeen will think himself desperately unlucky as the ball wraps around his trouser leg to drag back onto leg stump. That doesn't matter one bit to the locals, they are beginning to party in Bridgetown.

Length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to.
46.4 - S Cottrell to L Plunkett
Length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, thick edge to third man for 1 run, fielded by Thomas.
Cottrell strikes, pace and bounce from the left-armer kisses the glove on the way through to Hope. He'd been bowling plenty of cutters so this was onto Rashid quicker than expected. This match continues to twist and turn.

Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot Late Cut, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Hope.
