Goodbye ...

That's all from us for today. Thank you for joining us! We will be back on Wednesday as England can seal the series win at The Oval.

The likes of Stokes and Root starred with the bat today, but the day belongs to Moeen Ali, with special credit also going to Liam Plunkett.

I will leave you with the winning moment. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday evening.

'Plunkett is Mr. Reliable'

More Eoin Morgan: "Moeen is pretty chilled about everything and he delivers when the team needs him to deliver, which is so important for us. He has been outstanding today.

"Liam Plunkett is Mr. Reliable. He has never let us down over the past two years, he bowls quick. We will be ruthless as we can be and play our strongest XI in both remaining games."

England captain Eoin Morgan: "I am absolutely delighted, especially after losing the toss and losing an early wicket. I thought our start was outstanding. Moeen Ali’s innings was the difference between the sides, certainly with the batting anyway.

"Our bowlers were up against it on this wicket so I thought they did well. The West Indies are like us in that they like to score boundaries, but huge credit to our guys who stuck to their plans. Gayle is one of the best players in the world and we came up trumps."

I think Liam Plunkett is back on the radar for the Ashes. The one thing I worry about with England - if Mark Wood is injured - is a lack of pace. You need something a little different from Anderson and Broad. Perhaps even Craig Overton at Somerset... somebody who is different who could create something. At the minute, the fact Australia have bowlers all capable of bowling at 90mph... that could be the difference when the ball stops swinging.

West Indies captain Jason Holder: "We leaked runs at the death and we paid for it. We brought ourselves back into the game well in the middle stages with the wickets. Then a decent start with the batting but we didn't keep wickets in hand. The seamers did a decent job but just not as consistent as we would have really liked.

"We need to be better in the field. The players need to take the ownership on themselves, to stay on their game. "

BBC Test Match Special

England's Moeen Ali, who scored 102 off 57 balls: "It was a good time to come into bat today. I could play myself in and then had licence to clear the small boundaries. They bowled a lot which were in my slot. On another day, I could have hit one up in the air and got out cheaply."

Jason Cole: Chris Gayle is the new Inzy...

No matter what you say about Chris Gayle, he always brings something to the game. He just wants to bat without running. I've no idea why he bothers running. He's great for the game though, he always leaves you with a talking point - even when he's not playing, like in the second game of this series.

Isaac Cooper: All 10 wickets taken by Yorkshire players, yet Yorkshire are in a relegation battle in the Championship, ECB punishes success.

Anthony: This side is not far off the side we need for the Aussie's, do hope they take Hales as an opener in both formats.

Michael Vaughan

Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

The way Joe Root played today - he makes it look so simple across all formats. He doesn't change his tempo. I've no question that in five or 10 years' time, he'll surpass all records that are going. You can make a case now for saying he's our best ever.

WICKET - England win by 124 runs

Holder c Moeen b Plunkett 34 (WI 245 all out)

Plunkett has his fifth and England have the win. Holder goes for broke and drives it up in the air, straight into the paws of Moeen Ali at long-off.

How fitting ... Plunkett and Moeen, two of England's star performers from this match, combine for the finish.

Michael Vaughan

It's only 6pm, but it feels like 9 o'clock at night. Is it always like this in Bristol?

WI 245-9

Miguel Cummins has an orthodox slip and a leg-slip in place. The West Indies number 11 is off the mark with a whippy sweep shot down to the wide fine leg boundary for four.

England just one wicket away.

Michael Vaughan

It's beautifully bowled. Plunkett and Rashid have been the difference - they bring the pace and mystery.


Taylor b Rashid 0 (WI 241-9)

Jerome Taylor is the new man in. Seconds later, Jerome Taylor is out. Rashid opts for the googly as a first delivery for the new West Indies batsman and he just lost it in the flight, the ball ricocheting off the pad and into the stumps.

Michael Vaughan

It was a change of pace from Liam Plunkett and a good catch by Eoin Morgan - it's sometimes difficult to catch those under the lights.


Bishoo c Morgan b Plunkett 12 (WI 241-8)

England edging closer to the win. A slower ball from Plunkett, Bishoo plays across the line and scoops it up in the air, Morgan does the rest.

West Indies haven't given up - they're up against it but they've kept on going.

WI 238-7

We have a new record, ladies and gents. Holder smashes Plunkett for a six over long-on and, in doing so, records the 28th six of the match. The most ever in an ODI in England.

not-outNot out - WI 232-7

Nope, I don't even think Bishoo's back foot was off the ground. A good over from Rashid, though. Just a Bishoo sweep for four from it.

Umpire review

Umpire review here for a stumping? I'm not sure anyone actually appealed?

Gavin Way: I bet Gayle is wishing he'd applied that extra coat of varnish to his bat this morning...

WI 228-7

Cheeky, Bishoo. Short and straight from Plunkett and the West Indies batsman leans back and plays a ramp-like cut shot down to third man for a one-bounce four.

Bishoo then plays square cut and a diving Eoin Morgan at backward point can't get his left hand to it. Would have been a spectacular catch. Another boundary to end the over as Holder is given too much width and pulls for four.

Dan Norcross

BBC Test Match Special

It feels notional now. What would be annoying - particularly for the crowd - would be for the rain to arrive and then we'd be waiting around for the inevitable.

WI 216-7

Holder 19, Bishoo 2

Devendra Bishoo in at number nine for West Indies and is off the mark with a dab into the off side. Four from Rashid's over with England now seemingly cruising to their second victory in this ODI series.

Jason Cole: Chris Gayle is the new Inzy...


Nurse lbw b Rashid 1 (WI 212-7)

I was wrong, not plumb, but still out. Rashid gives it some flight and ball tracking shows it was clipping the top of the stumps. This one could be over very soon.

West Indies review

Nurse looks pretty plumb in front. West Indies review.

Dan Gee: Is Plunkett an option for the Ashes? (I haven't looked at his county record this season by the way)

Liam Plunkett has played just two red-ball games for Yorkshire this summer, in which he took six wickets at an average of 22.66.

WI 212-6

Plunkett 6-0-31-0

Not only does Liam Plunkett have a smashing, solid beard, he is also having a good series with the ball. He's slowly becoming Mr. Dependable for England in this format of the game.

Two from the over and the wicket.

Vic Marks

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

It's interesting to see who Morgan used to bowl at Gayle - it was essentially Plunkett, Woakes and Stokes. Then Moeen rather than Rashid. Now he doesn't mind who he bowls because he's in charge. But it shows how Plunkett has become a key member of this team.


Mohammed c Bairstow b Plunkett 38 (WI 210-6)

Plunkett has his third wicket. In his second ball of this spell, he bangs it in short, Mohammed pulls and Bairstow, coming in from deep square leg, takes the simplest of catches.

India wrap up series win

India have sealed their one-day series against Australia, going 3-0 up with two to play by five wickets in Indore.

Aaron Finch made 124 in Australia's 293-6, but the home side coasted home with 13 deliveries to spare.

India have now won nine consecutive ODIs, equaling their best ever run.

For the moment, West Indies are going to rebuild a fraction.

WI 210-5

Moeen 10-0-65-0

Bristol has gone all Mexican as a wave does the rounds. A couple of singles for the Windies, before Jason Holder thumps Moeen Ali for yet another six down the ground.

Jason Holder

not-outNot out

Good decision from the umpire. The ball was sliding down leg. Carry on... nothing to see here.

England review

Moeen turns one back into Jason Holder's pads. Good shout, this. Not out... England review.

WI 202-5

Holder plays a paddle sweep to fine leg, David Willey gives chase and throws a looping throw back towards Buttler. Direct hit and Holder would have gone. In fact, if Buttler hadn't let the ball go by, he probably still would have been gone.

Holder makes England pay with a six over deep mid-wicket.

WI 193-5

Target 370

The big man Jason Holder is next in and the Windies captain is nearly outdone twice by the turn of Moeen Ali. The first one goes through the gap between bat and pad, narrowly missing the bails. The second spins sharply and hits Holder high up on pad. Tidy over.
