    End of Over 20. 22 runs. Bowler: Obed McCoy. England: 182/6 (rr 9.10)
  • 19.6

    OUT! Caught. Obed McCoy to Sam Billings. Length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Hope. Billings loses his shape looking to heave the ball back to St Lucia and Hope accepts the simple chance.

    England were in all sorts of bother after losing four wickets in the powerplay before Joe Root and Sam Billings rescued them with a classy partnership. Root was run out for 55 but Billings was able to explode at the death to make 87 and launch the tourists up to 182/6. Windies were excellent up front with the ball and in the field, however those standards really slipped at the end and now they have a tough chase on their hands.

  • 19.5

    FOUR! Obed McCoy to Sam Billings. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. Swatted with disdain, this is late carnage and just what England needed.

  • 19.4

    SIX! Obed McCoy to Sam Billings. Length ball, off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled over long off for 6 runs, dropped catch by Brathwaite. Skewed into the deep, it's a very short boundary and Brathwaite can't keep it in play. It was a tough one for the big man, he was trying to palm it back but couldn't get a solid hand on it.

  • 19.3

    Obed McCoy to Sam Billings. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off for 2 runs, dropped catch by Hetmyer. Put down, there's only a few deliveries left in the innings but with Billings in this mood it could prove very costly.

  • 19.2

    FOUR! Obed McCoy to Sam Billings. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot reverse sweeping, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Billings is inventing new shots for fun at Warner Park, this is a reverse-pull and it races away for another boundary.

  • 19.1

    SIX! Obed McCoy to Sam Billings. Slower ball half volley, off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Billings gives himself room to free the arms and then smashes the ball for another six. Pressure on the debutant, this is a tough situation to have the ball in your hands.

  • 18.6

    FOUR! Carlos Brathwaite to Sam Billings. Half volley, wide outside off stump moves in front driving, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. Fortune for Billings, that could've easily dragged back onto the stumps but instead it zips down to fine leg.

  • 18.1

    FOUR! Carlos Brathwaite to Sam Billings. Full toss, wide outside off stump moves in front Scoop, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. Outrageous stroke by Billings, shifting way outside off stump and ramping the ball over short fine leg. That's the first boundary Brathwaite has conceded today.

The third umpire isn't even required.

    OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to Devendra Bishoo. Back of a length, down leg side backing away pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to square leg, by Billings. Fittingly it is Billings who takes the final catch, watching it carefully over his shoulder to seal the series for the tourists.

    England have annihilated the Windies by 137 runs in St Kitts to seal the T20I series with a match to spare. Such a margin would have been unthinkable when the tourists were wobbling at 32/4 inside the powerplay, with Fabian Allen picking up two important early scalps. However Joe Root and Sam Billings rescued England with a partnership of 82 runs, with the latter making a career best 87 thanks to some late carnage. The hosts really lost the momentum in the second half of their fielding display as some sloppiness creeped into their game and that carried over into the batting effort. Wickets began tumbling and never stopped with Chris Jordan running through the middle order like a hot knife through butter, getting the ball to nip around at high pace. Just two men made it into double figures for the Windies, both of them making only 10, as they crumbled to the second lowest T20I score of 45 all out. The series and this long tour comes to an end on Sunday at this same venue.

    OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to Shimron Hetmyer. Back of a length, down leg side backing away pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Willey. Hetmyer was the last glimmer of hope for the Windies but now he has to depart. The ball hung in the air for a really long time and Willey needed three or four grabs at it, eventually he clung on. Plunkett joins the party for England, hitting his typical hard length to elicit the top edge.
