West Indies cricket team


6.51am EDT 06:51 19th over: West Indies 82-1 (Lewis 48, Hope 25) Another tight over from Nabi, who has figures of 4-0-14-0.

1.34pm EDT 13:34 45th over: West Indies 292-7 (Pooran 108, Cottrell 0) The job is far from done for Pooran and he knows it, hammering Udana’s short ball into the stands for SIX MORE! Ten off it keeps them with the rate, the equation now 47 from 30. Yes, he lost Allen during that over …

6.17am EDT 06:17 10th over: West Indies 41-1 (Gayle 33, Hope 4) Archer restores order and makes Hope jump.
