Jason Roy – 2/10 – Chopped the ball onto his stumps when he was on just 2 to give Sheldon Cottrell his second wicket. He also ran out Jason Holder.

Jonny Bairstow – 0/10 – Dismissed lbw for a golden duck by a good ball from Cottrell.

Joe Root – 5/10 – He batted well to reach 36 off 40 balls but played a poor shot to give his wicket away to Oshane Thomas.

Eoin Morgan – 8/10 – He looked in excellent form during his 70 off 83 balls. However, his team needed him to go on to a century. He brought Adil Rashid on earlier this time and that decision paid off.

Ben Stokes – 8/10 – The chase was under control while he was at the crease during his excellent 79. But after he was caught behind, the lower order fell apart. He also bowled quite well and got the wicket of Shai Hope.

Jos Buttler – 5/10 – Started his innings well but failed in his role as the finisher when he hit the ball straight to Hetmyer when he was on 34.

Moeen Ali – 2/10 – He is not having a good series so far. He was ineffective with the ball again (0-51 in seven overs) and got dismissed (a little unluckily) at a crucial point in the chase.

Tom Curran – 5/10 – He bowled reasonably well (0-62 in ten overs) but did not manage to take wickets like Chris Woakes usually does in his role.

Adil Rashid – 7/10 – He was brought on early and he got the crucial wicket of Chris Gayle with a beautifully-flighted leg-spinner. He finished with 1-28 but strangely was only given six overs. He also gave England hope for a time during the chase with his 15 off 19 balls.

Liam Plunkett – 6/10 – It was a much better bowling display from the paceman as he dismissed John Campbell during his spell of 1-39 in seven overs.

Mark Wood – 8/10 – He demonstrated superb control of line and length during an impressively economic spell of 1-38 in ten overs.

West Indies

Chris Gayle – 7/10 – Started patiently again but soon accelerated to reach 50 off 63 balls. However, Rashid then stopped him in his tracks by bowling him.

John Campbell – 4/10 – He played a few pleasing shots during his 23 off 31 balls but he must learn to go on and make bigger scores.

Shai Hope – 5/10 – He struggled to find as much fluency as he did in the previous match and was dismissed by Stokes for 33 off 45 balls.

Darren Bravo – 3/10 – England bowled much better at him this time and he laboured to 25 off 37 balls before Rashid ran him out.

Shimron Hetmyer – 9/10 – He blazed his way to a superb 104 off 83 balls in his own imitable style to set his team up for victory.

Jason Holder – 8/10 – When he removed Stokes, Buttler and Curran in quick succession, it changed the game completely. It was a brilliant way to lead by example and he finished with 3-53 in ten overs.

Carlos Brathwaite – 4/10 – He was expensive in his first five overs but he enjoyed the champagne moment when he got the final wicket. He was bowled by Wood for 13.

Ashley Nurse – 7/10 – His mean economy rate of 4.67 in his six overs really put the pressure on England during their chase. He added 13 not out with the bat.

Sheldon Cottrell – 9/10 – His inclusion made all the difference to the West Indies as he dismissed both England openers and then took three more wickets to finish with career-best figures of 5-46. His military celebration is memorable too, although it may haunt England.

Devendra Bishoo – 7/10 – He contained England superbly during his ten-over spell of 0-49.

Oshane Thomas – 5/10 – He dismissed Root but did not threaten much apart from that during his five-over spell of 1-32.


The Third ODI between England and the West Indies begins in Grenada at 1.30pm GMT on Monday 25th February 2019.
