Batting first, the West Indies again struggled to cope with the English bowling attack, finding themselves at 3-30 runs, their openers Dwayne Smith and Kieran Powell as Number 3 batsman Kirk Edwards falling for 5, 16 and 9 respectively.

Darren Bravo was no different as he soaked up 56 deliveries for 13 runs while his older brother Dwayne made 20.

Only 70 from Lendl Simmons presented a respectable figure in the windies 159 all out in 44.2 overs.

Stephan Parry snared 3 wickets for 32 runs off his 10 overs while Joe root and James Tredwell each picked up 2 wickets.

In England’s turn at the crease Micheal Lumb scored 39 to set the foundation for the win, but it was no smooth sailing for England.

The loss of steady wickets proved a challenge, Moeen Ali (10) going when the score was 29 and Luke Wright going a couple overs later for a duck.
