STEPHEN PARRY on debut is adjudged the Man of the Match for his bowling spell. That is all that we have for you from this exhilarating game. Do join us for the third and final ODI on Wednesday, 5th March. Till then, take care everyone!
Moeen Ali got out early and the introduction of Sunil Narine brought about a real sense of panic in the English line up. Wickets started to fall in a heap and at one stage, with 7 wickets down, things looked bleak. However, Bopara and Broad managed to stem the flow of wickets and somehow took England over the finishing line with 3 wickets in hand. West Indies made a game out of nothing and almost made a heist. With one game in the balance, the decider is sure to be full of more surprises and heart-stopping moments.
A thrilling game of cricket and in the end, it is England who scrape home by 3 wickets. Their hearts must have been in their mouths at 105/7 but somehow, they have managed to win this and level the series. England did a fantastic job to bundle the Windies for 159 but when they got out to chase, things just got out of hands.
