4
FREE HIT. FOUR! Jason Holder to Ben Stokes. Half volley, middle stump backing away flick, past long on for 4 runs. Stokes pierces the legside field and that will be the match. A dominant performance from England against a lacklustre West Indian side. Pooran's half century in the first innings was the only real highlight for the Caribbean side. The sun is shining on England as they move up to second in the table with three wins from four. There will be concerns though over the fitness of Jason Roy and the captain Eoin Morgan after both hobbled off in the first innings. The hosts will be hoping they won't be out of action for any more than a week or so, although they will back themselves to beat Afghanistan and Sri Lanka in their next two fixtures even without that destructive pairing. That's all from Southampton for today, let's hope for some more weather like this moving forwards in this competition.

OUT! Caught (Sub). Shannon Gabriel to Chris Woakes. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg. We've seen a lot of the pull shot from England today but this one stayed in the air too long and Fabian Allen who's on as a sub did well to come forwards and take a comfortable catch. A decent knock from Woakes, that time at the crease might serve him well later in the tournament.

OUT! Bowled. Mark Wood to Shannon Gabriel. Reverse Swing-In yorker, off stump on the front foot driving, missed to. Full, fast, straight and it's through Gabriel and smashing into the base of off stump. That's how you bowl at the number eleven, although to be fair to Gabriel that delivery might have troubled plenty of batsmen. Impressive stuff from England throughout that innings, although there will be concerns over the fitness of Roy and Morgan who are such key members of the side.

W
OUT! Caught. Jofra Archer to Carlos Brathwaite. Short, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, top edge to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Brathwaite doesn't look too happy but with no reviews left he will have to go. Short from Archer and it cramped Brathwaite. It's come off Brathwaite's shoulder which is why he might not have been too happy. In fact UltraEdge is showing there was a nick off the bat before the ball hit Brathwaite so it's actually a very good decision.

SIX! Mark Wood to Carlos Brathwaite. Back of a length, off stump Deep in crease pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Launched into the stands by Brathwaite, right out of the middle. Flashbacks to the World T20 final in Delhi in 2016.

39.5
W
OUT! L.B.W. Jofra Archer to Sheldon Cottrell. Length ball, off stump on the back foot flick, hit pad to. That looks out, and it's given. Cottrell moved a long way in front of his stumps. He decides to review but I'm not sure it will save him. It doesn't, the ball is smashing into leg stump and Archer is on a hat-trick.
39.4
W
OUT! Caught. Jofra Archer to Nicholas Pooran. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Leave, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by Buttler. Did that flick the glove? Pooran was trying to draw his bat out of the way but with the angle from round the wicket the ball followed him. Buttler wants to review, he's in charge now Morgan is off the field. It did just flick the glove, the decision is overturned and Pooran has to go.

FOUR! Adil Rashid to Nicholas Pooran. Googly length ball, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, well timed for 4 runs. Swept and swept well by Pooran. He has batted really well today, displaying both his talent and temperament.

W
OUT! Caught. Mark Wood to Andre Russell. Short, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Woakes. Russell takes on the long square boundary and falls in similar fashion to Chris Gayle earlier in the piece. Chris Woakes is grateful for a second opportunity to catch Russell out in the deep.
36.1
4
FOUR! Mark Wood to Andre Russell. Back of a length, middle stump backing away flick, in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Pace on the ball and muscled into the gap on the legside, not middled but four more.

SIX! Adil Rashid to Andre Russell. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. That's going to be six more, Russell falling over and losing his balance after he's played the shot. In fact he looks in some pain and needs some attention from the physio, it looks to be a problem with his wrist.
34.4
6
SIX! Adil Rashid to Andre Russell. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. This time it's out of the middle and the ball goes flying over long on and endangers some spectators.

31.6
W
OUT! Caught & Bowled. Joe Root to Jason Holder. Arm ball half volley, down leg side on the front foot glancing, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to silly mid on, by Root. That's looped up in the air, another caught and bowled for Joe Root. There was an element of luck about this one, it wasn't a great delivery, in fact it would have been a wide well down the legside. Holder was trying to glance the ball but closed the face too far and the ball came off the leading edge and lobbed up back to Root.
31.5

SIX! Joe Root to Jason Holder. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Lofted down the ground for six, as easy as you like for Jason Holder with those long limbs.

W
OUT! Caught & Bowled. Joe Root to Shimron Hetmyer. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, in the air uncontrolled to silly mid on, by Root. Root holds on and he gets the breakthrough for England. He'd been bowling wide of off stump to the left-handers with a packed offside field and long on back. Hetmyer was looking to push the ball to that long on fielder for one but hit the ball in the air and too close to Joe Root.

FOUR! Ben Stokes to Shimron Hetmyer. Length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. That's a good shot. Hetmyer goes straighter off the front foot this time and mid-on won't be stopping that.
25.1

FOUR! Ben Stokes to Nicholas Pooran. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs. The luck is just running the way of the West Indies at the moment. Another pull shot doesn't hit anywhere near the middle of the bat but goes to the boundary.

FOUR! Liam Plunkett to Shimron Hetmyer. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Pulled and pulled hard. It wasn't that far away from mid-wicket but it was moving so quickly he couldn't get a hand on it.
16.1
4
FOUR! Liam Plunkett to Nicholas Pooran. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Hammered through backward point. That ball was near the top of its bounce but Pooran found a way to smash it away to the boundary.

13.2
W
OUT! L.B.W. Mark Wood to Shai Hope. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, hit pad to second slip. That looks very close. Not out is the decision but surely England will review this. They do decide to send it upstairs. There's no inside edge and it looks very straight. Hitting middle and leg says Hawk-Eye and the West Indies lose Hope. England right on top here now.

W
OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to Chris Gayle. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Bairstow. Gayle takes on the pull shot. The boundaries are massive here in Southampton and there is a man back. Gayle doesn't clear him and Jonny Bairstow takes an important catch for England.
12.2

FOUR! Liam Plunkett to Shai Hope. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, outside edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Tries to run it to third man again but it goes finer than Hope intended, just out of Buttler's reach.

OUT! Bowled. Chris Woakes to Evin Lewis. Half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, hit pad to. That's through him, excellent bowling from Chris Woakes. England had been hitting a good length across the left-handers time and time again. This time Woakes aimed for the stumps, it was full and straight and took Lewis by surprise. He fell over slightly as he tried to hit the ball legside and it snuck off his pad into off stump.

FOUR! Shannon Gabriel to Chris Woakes. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control for 4 runs. Well if ever there was an example of the luxuries England have within their squad it has to be this. They lost two of their top five batsmen in the first innings so in comes the opening bowler to bat at number three. Make no mistake he can bat too, as shown by this cracking pull shot.

OUT! Caught. Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, in the air uncontrolled to third man, by Brathwaite. Short again and this time Bairstow hits offside but he's picked out the man at third man. He hit it quite well but in the end the fielder barely had to move. Bairstow goes just short of 50 and Chris Woakes comes to the creaae with both Roy and Morgan suffering injuries in the first innings.

FOUR! Shannon Gabriel to Jonny Bairstow. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Drilled off the back foot by Bairstow.

FOUR! Shannon Gabriel to Joe Root. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. Another lovely pull shot from Root, there's nobody back at deep square leg so he was able to play the shot without fear of finding a fielder.
