In England's reply, Jerome Taylor dismissed opener Jason Roy off the first ball of the innings. Alex hales then threatened to take the match away from the Windies but when he was dismissed for 43 off just 17, the game swung back in the Windies’ favour.

Jos Butler 30 and Johnny Bairstow 27, were the next best scorers for England as Sunil Narine's Man-of-the-Match 2-15 from 4 overs helped secure the win for the Windies.
