Cricket news - Windies vs ENG, 4th ODI - Live Blog
STUMPED! Jason Holder is stumped and Windies lose their sixth! In trouble now... Still need over 100. Adil Rashid with the wicket.
300 up for Windies
GAYLE FALLS FOR 162! That could be the game! Stokes with the wicket - as often as he provides his captain with just that. But a spectacular innings comes to an end off just 97 balls. Windies still need 124 in 95 balls. Gives himself some room, exposing the stumps... you miss, I hit! Boom! Bowled!
CHRIS GAYLE GETS TO HIS 150!!! Massive shot over the ropes and Gayle gets to the landmark. Unbelievable innings, this, from Gayle! WOW! 14 sixes so far from him - the highest for any batsman against England.
Fifty-run stand up between Holder and Gayle.
250 up for WI.
All four wickets to Wood so far.
SIX AND OUT! First ball six, and next ball out. Wood levies a double strike in the over, pegging Windies back. WI needed Hetmyer in this mammoth chase. Big blow!
BRAVO HOLES OUT! The stand is broken and England are back in it. Mark Wood strikes straight up - gets his third. Gone for 61 off 59. Hetmyer the new man in.
200 up for Windies. The required rate now is below 8, with the current above 9.
FIFTY FOR BRAVO! The pair have now added 150 runs together.
Century for Gayle! Second this series! What a knock it's been despite losing two wickets at the other end. Comes off just 55 balls. Bravo bows down to the legend.
150 up for WI!
Gayle and Bravo notch up their century stand. Gayle into the 90s.
500 sixes for Gayle in international cricket - has the most number. Takes off his helmet, puts it on the top of the bat handle as he waves it around the crowd. 10000 ODI runs too!
100 up for Windies
FIFTY FOR GAYLE! After those early wickets, Gayle has done extremely well to keep Windies afloat. Third fifty-plus score in the series for Gayle. Off just 32 balls.
SHAI HOPE DEPARTS! Big blow for Windies as Wood strikes once again to get his second. He's been taken for runs, but has two wickets to his name. Hope edges to Buttler, who makes no mistake in a diving catch to his right. Two quick wickets have pegged Windies back.
OUT! Wood strikes! Campbell has to make his way back. No timing on the one angling in, and the batsman goes after it. No length on it either, ends up skying to Root in the cover region.
Gayle and Campbell are in the middle. Gayle has one fifty and one century in the two innings this series so far.
WOW! ENGLAND FINISH WITH 418/6. It has been a highlights reel, almost, given how England went in those last ten overs, which fetched them 154! Jos Buttler fell for a 77-ball 150, as England now hold the record for the highest number of sixes in an ODI innings. It was just plan, brutal hitting from the pair of Morgan and Buttler who added 204 in quick time, with both batsmen accelerating after their respective fifties. While Morgan fell for 103, Buttler carried on to fall in the last over. You would think this is too much for Windies to chase down after that confidence-shattering innings. But they have the arsenal to do so. Join us for the chase in a bit.
WORLD RECORD FOR THE MAX NUMBER OF SIXES BELONGS TO ENGLAND NOW! Buttler's 12th gives him his 150, off just 77!
Six from Buttler and England equal the world record for the highest umber of sixes with one over to go.
400 up for England!
WICKET FINAALLLLLLY! Morgan departs for 103! It ends a 204-run stand between the pair.
MORGAN HAS A CENTURY NOW! This has been incredible to watch from these two batsmen. 200 up between them now!
CENTUUUURY FOR BUTTLER! It's been a spectacular innings! Has come off just 60 balls.
DROPPED! Buttler dropped on 93 at deep cover. Was done in by the speed at which it came to him.
150-run stand up for the pair. The last 50 runs have come in no time!!
FIFTY FOR BUTTLER! Fourth half-centurion today. Morgan into the 90s...
Century up between Morgan and Buttler.
250 up for England. They have 12 more overs to go. How many do you think they can get?
FIFTY FOR MORGAN NOW! England have had three, so far. Can Morgan convert his fifty to a century, unlike the other two? The pair have now added over 50 runs too.
200 up for England and there's a nice little stand building here between Morgan and Buttler.
Superb catch from Hetmyer at the boundary. Times his jump to perfection, hanging on to the catch despite a tumble to send Hales packing. No century on return for Hales then. Departs for 82 off 73 balls. Nurse has his first wicket. The stand that was looking dangerous has been broken.
150 up for England.
Windies think they have Root caught behind. Umpire says no. They review it. OUT!! There's a spike on UltraEdge. And Root has to go. Oshane with the wicket once more. ENG - 120/2.
FIFTY FOR HALES! It's his 14th ODI fifty. Gets there at better than a run a ball. England still going at over a rate of 6.
CHOPS ON! Oshane Thomas gets the breakthrough. Bairstow lost his rhythm after getting to his fifty. Chops on for 53. Much needed, this breakthrough for the hosts. Wasn't getting too much of the strike the last few overs. Cramped for room this time.
100 up for England. The opening stand of a century comes off just 82 balls.
Hales doesn't want to be left behind. Slew of boundaries off Ashley Nurse this over. Three boundaries, followed by a six!! Another expensive over - 19 runs off it. England are off to a flying start.
50 up for England. England are going well here, their run-rate above 6 at this stage. Bairstow dealing in sixes at the moment. Three sixes this over from Bishoo and Bairstow has his half-century in quick time. Comes only in 31 balls.
Big shout for leg before from Cottrell against Bairstow in the opening over - turned down by the umpire. Replays show, it would've clipped leg stump.
Players making their way into the middle. Play to begin soon.
The wicket has a lot of runs in it, reckon the experts.
Join us for play in a bit.
