21:40 - ENG 243 ALL OUT! (48.2 overs) WEST INDIES LEVEL THE SERIES! Anderson is clean bowled going for an almighty haymaker over midwicket and England's challenge is over. West Indies win by 21 runs to level the series. The third ODI is in Bridgetown, Barbados on Friday and can you follow the action right here. Cow is very much looking forward to it.
21:35 - ENG 241-9 (48 overs) England have the merest glimmer of hope. Anderson squeezes one away to the point boundary, then survives an LBW shout to grab a quick single. England need 24 RUNS FROM 12 BALLS. It's been done.
21:30 - ENG 229-9 (47.4 overs) WICKET! Pollard bowls Strauss round his legs and England are surely done for now. They need 26 from 20 balls and those runs must come from Anderson and Harmison..exactly!
21:20 - ENG 225-8 (46.2 overs) CENTURY FOR STRAUSS! RAIN! England's captain completes a fine century, then cracks a long-overdue boundary to the extra-cover fenece. But the rain is coming down heavily and the covers come on. England are currently behind on the DL Method.
21:00 - ENG 211-8 (44 overs) Strauss goes for a big one to square leg and it drops just short of the fielder and skids past him for four. Harmy is doing a good job, sweeping at every opportunity and ticking the scoreboard over. England need 54 from six overs and Strauss, finally, TAKES THE POWERPLAY!
20:50 - ENG 187-8 (41 overs) WICKET! Batty rocks onto the back foot and picks up a boundary off Gayle with a solid cut shot. The next ball he takes a single to Miller and mid-on, who summons a DIRECT HIT AT THE BOWLER'S END TO SEND BATTY BACK TO THE PAVILLION!!! Wonderful fielding from Miller. England need 77 from nine overs.
20:40 - ENG 168-7 (38 overs) WICKET! Oh dear. Broad gifts Miller a straightforward caught-and-bowled and England are seven down. Moreover, the tourists now need just over eight runs an over to reach their target - which is double their current run rate. Batty is the next man in.
20:30 - ENG 163-6 (37 overs) WICKET! Strauss calls a quick single to Gayle at mid-on and when the West Indies captain picks up and throws to Ramdin, Mascarenhas is still stranded at the bowler's end and is RUN OUT!! Terrible communication between the two batsmen. It was Strauss's call, but Mascarenhas hesitated and was ultimately run out by a country mile. Enter Broad.
20:25 - ENG 147-5 (34 overs) FIFTY FOR STRAUSS! The England captain is leading from the front. England now need 118 from 16 overs as West Indies take the new ball. Strauss and Mascarenhas have put on 50 runs for the sixth wicket and this match is heading to a fascinating, if very slow, conclusion.
20:10 - ENG 128-5 (30 overs) Not much to report. England are ticking over VERY SLOWLY. West Indies have introduced Miller's left-arm spin into the attack, which is yet to tempt Strauss or Mascarenhas.
19:55 ENG 112-5 (26 overs) Strauss is still there for England, chipping away in patient fashion. Meanwhile, Mascarenhas pulls Bravo through midwicket for the tourists' first boundary since the 11th over. West Indies are well on top.
19:40 - ENG 98-5 (23 overs) WICKET! Sammy gets one to keep low and Prior is caught behind by Ramdin! The England wicketkeeper got a bottom edge and the ball went through very quickly to his opposition number, but Ramdin stayed down and took a fine catch. England are reeling.
19:25 - ENG 88-4 (20 overs) WICKETS! Bravo strikes! Shah is caught square in front and the umpire has an easy decision. Just when England were beginning to look settled, they lose a key wicket! Collingwood is the next man in, but he fails to trouble the scorers. Bravo gets some late swing and clips his off stump. England are in disarray!!
19:20 - ENG 86-2 (19 overs) DROPPED CATCH! Strauss chips one straight back at Sammy, but it slips through his hands and the England captain survives for the second time - and for a second time Sammy drops him. We haven't had a boundary since the 11th over, but England are building a solid platform.
19:10 - ENG 73-2 (16 overs) The bowling Powerplay is over and West Indies definitely had the better of it - with England scoring just 14 runs from the five overs. Bravo traps Strauss in front, but the umpire rightly keeps his finger in his pocket as the ball pitched outside leg stump. On comes the golf buggy and the players take drinks.
18:55 - ENG 70-2 (13 overs) Strauss and Shah are ticking along nicely and beginning to settle. England need 195 from 37 overs. At this stage in their innings West Indies were 70-2. Surely that's reason enough to be cheerful?
18:40 - ENG 55-2 (10 overs) That's more like it! Shah caresses one through the offside for a sumptuous four. The next over Strauss bags two offside boundaries in succession from Edwards and pushes the next one through leg for two. Powerplay one comes to a close with England on 55-2, 14 runs ahead of where West Indies were at this stage in their innings. West Indies immediately decide to go into their bowling Powerplay, exactly as England did.
18:25 - ENG 36-2 (7.2 overs) BIG WICKET! Edwards gets his man! KP plays on in almost identical fashion to Bopara and his house is brought tumbling down by the Windies paceman. Understandably the home players and fans are ecstatic. England are two down early on and in serious trouble. Shah is the new man in.
18:10 - ENG 22-1 (5 overs) WICKET! Bopara cracks Baker away for four through point and repeats the trick when he gets a loose one from Edwards. But his promising innings is brought to an end when he drags onto his stumps from Baker in the fifth over. Bopara didn't move his feet. Enter Kevin 'KP' Pietersen, who edges his first ball away for four to third man. England expects Mr Pietersen, England expects.
18:00 - ENG 5-0 (1 over) DROPPED CATCH! Strauss and Bopara open for England. The England captain fends away the first couple from Baker, but edges the third at catchable height towards Sammy at second slip. Fortunately for England a difficult catch goes down and Strauss takes a single. Bopara then cracks a lovely straight four to mid-on.
17:30 - WI 264-8 (50 overs) Mascarenhas with the final over for England and he does a superb job. Windies are limited to six runs and finish with a total of 264-8, with Chanderpaul unbeaten on 112. Sarwan weighed in with 89, but elsewhere no other West Indies batsman came to the party. England bowled well, especially Anderson who took 3-37 from his nine overs. Collingwood (3-49) also played his part. As the players leave the field the rain begins to fall again.
17:20 - WI 258-8 (49 overs) WICKETS! Sammy batters one back past Mascarenhas for four, but Collingwood traps him plum as plum pie in front of his stumps and he walks for 11. Miller is the next man in and he goes first ball, clean-bowled by Colly!! Edwards takes a single from hat-trick ball. England are doing a good job of restraining the home side. Six balls to go (wides permitting).
17:10 - WI 245-6 (47 overs) We're back and Chanderpaul marks the occasion with a reverse sweep for four off Collingwood. The rain has been replaced by sunshine, but the skies are hinting at more of the wet stuff. DL Method anyone?
16:50 - WI 238-6 WICKETS! (46.1 overs) Collingwood takes a brilliant catch diving backwards on the midwicket fence and Bravo makes for the pavillion. Mascarenhas has a second wicket. The next man in for the West Indies is Ramdin, and he manages just a single before scooping a simple catch to Harmy off the bowling of Collingwood. All of sudden West Indies' big total is under threat. CUE RAIN! THE COVERS ARE ON!
16:45 - WI 237-4 (45 overs) CENTURY FOR CHANDERPAUL! One-day ton number 10 for the left-hander, who has been almost faultless in his execution in front of his home crowd. Meanwhile Bravo gets in on the act with a mighty six over extra cover from Mascarenhas.
16:35 - WI 222-4 (43 overs) Chanderpaul becomes the third West Indian to reach 8,000 runs in one-day cricket - joining Brian Lara and Desmond Haynes. The home side are knocking off ones and twos with ease at the moment. A grandstand finish to their innings is assured.
16:20 - WI 206-4 (39.4 overs) WICKET! Harmison takes a wonderful catch at long-leg to deny Chanderpaul a six, but the left-hander questions the height of Anderson's delivery and the umpire decides it was a no-ball. Chanderpaul survives and the England players are not happy. But the very next over Masceranhas gets the breakthrough when Pollard holes out to Pietersen at midwicket.
16:10 - WI 190-3 (37 overs) Chanderpaul takes the fight to Anderson, smiting him away for two fours before getting through quickly for a two to frustrate England further. Broad up next and Chanderpaul smashes him over Collingwood's despairing dive at long-off to the boundary before playing a REVERSE SLOG SWEEP FOR FOUR TO SEND THE CROWD WILD!! Broad reacts with a wide. Then another one. And another one. Thirteen from that over.
15:50 - WI 157-3 (35 overs) POWERPLAY! WICKET! England finally get the breakthrough and it's that man Anderson again who takes it in the first over of the final Powerplay. Sarwan goes for a Hollywood shot to long-off and Collingwood takes the catch running in from the boundary. Pollard is the next man up and Anderson immediately fires in a short one. If England can get Chanderpaul sharpish they could steal the initiative here.
15:45 WI 156-2 (34 overs) Bopara gets one in the corridor of uncertainty to Sarwan, but the ball keeps low and squirts past Prior for two byes. Chanderpaul tries to sweep Bopara soon after and four leg byes are the result. Sarwan then saves his partner's bacon by sending him back on a crazy single...he just makes it. Windies' projected score at this stage is 229.
15:35 WI 143-2 (32 overs) More controversy. This time England are being picked up on their habit of throwing the ball on the bounce to Prior to rough it up. The umpire gestures to Broad that he needs to keep the ball up. The pitch is doing nothing and England are growing increasingly desperate for inspiration. Chanderpaul flicks Harmy away to the legside for two to bring up his half-century. Sarwan and Chanderpaul have now put on 119.
15:20 WI 124-2 (28 overs) Strauss gets himself in trouble after the England captain is adjudged to have 'significantly' moved during Collingwood's run-up, thus acting as a disatraction to the batsman. Strauss is a little miffed by the whole thing, but the umpires have spoken and he'll have to be careful. Meanwhile, Windies are chugging along nicely. Sarwan chips Batty over his head for a straight four and looks on course for a century.
15:15 WI 120-2 (26 overs) Sarwan comes down the track to Batty and smashes the ball away for four. He rocks back for the next one and gets the same result to the point boundary. Windies are starting to turn it up and England simply don't have an answer. Thoughts return to Prior's drop, which could prove the key moment in the match.
15:10 - WI 105-2 (24 overs) Sarwan eases to his 32nd one-day fifty. It's come from 58 balls and included two big sixes - the second coming off Mascarenhas. His partnership with Chanderpaul has been worth 81 runs so far and is getting stronger by the minute.
15:00 - WI 83-2 (22 overs) DROPPED CATCH! Mascarenhas enters the attack and gets an inside edge from Chanderpaul, but Prior puts him down! That could prove a sliding doors moment in the match. To make matters worse, Sarwan proceeds to launch Batty over midwicket for six. Ouch. With Chanderpaul and Sarwan beginning to settle the tourists desperately need a breakthrough here.
14:40 - WI 68-2 (18 overs) Cow would now like to take the time to address jongros - who asks about Powerplays. Basically there are three Powerplays in a one-day innings, in which the bowling side are limited to a certain number of fielders outside the circle. During the first 10 overs England were only allowed two fielders outside the circle, giving the batting side a good opportunity to attack. England then had to defend two more Powerplays of five overs, with a maximum of three fielders outside the circle. Strauss chose to take the first of those immediately after the obligatory opening Powerplay, while West Indies get to choose when the final Powerplay happens.
14:35 - WI 61-2 (16 overs) Chanderpaul raises the stakes with a vicious pull to the square leg boundary against Broad. There ends the bowling powerplay and Batty enters the attack and concedes three runs from a tight opening over. Chanderpaul and Sarwan are ticking along, but you get the feeling the pair are biding their time for an onslaught.
14:20 - WI 52-2 (13 overs) Windies are making slow, but steady progress. Harmison gets an edge from Chanderpaul, but with first slip no longer in position the ball skips merrily down to the third-man boundary for four. Anderson is bowling superbly, with 2-16 from his six overs. Harmy looks to be in some discomfort on the boundary. The England physio has gone over to check on him.
14:10 - WI 41-2 (10 overs) Harmison gets back on the horse after his humiliation at the hands of Chanderpaul. And guess what, he's up against Chanderpaul. But this time Harmy keeps it tight and concedes just three runs. Anderson gets the treatment the next over, however, being worked for four on the legside by the left-hander. The skies are looking rather ominous overhead.
14:00 - WI 32-2 (8 overs) Sarwan leans into a full one from Broad and carves him away to the covers boundary. Chanderpaul is the other new man in and he opens his stance to almost square on to push Anderson away for a single to point. Anderson has bowled superbly so far and England are just about on top at this stage. That said, Harmison is warming up...
13:50 - WI 24-2 (5.1 overs) BIG WICKET! Gayle gets a skidder from Anderson and drags on to his stumps. That is a MASSIVE WICKET for England. Gayle was just starting to get a taste for it. He tried to steer the ball down to third man, but the low bounce did for him.
13:45 - WI 15-1 (3.2 overs) WICKET! Gayle's patience lasts precisely two overs. He batters the first ball of Broad's over to the long-on boundary and cracks the next one to the midwicket fence. Two balls later the West Indies captain throws the bat at a wide one outside off stump and bags another four runs. But the very next over Anderson attracts an outside edge from Simmons and Prior takes the catch to give the tourists an early breakthrough. Enter Sarwan.
13:30 - WI 3-0 (2 overs) Broad opens up with a tight first over, conceding just two runs. Jimmy Anderson then fires down four dot balls in succession before Gayle pushes a single on the offside. Anderson finishes with a good line to Simmons to complete a decent first over. Good start for England.
13:15 - Chris Gayle has won the toss and elected to bat first. England name an unchanged team, namely: 1 Andrew Strauss (capt), 2 Ravi Bopara, 3 Kevin Pietersen, 4 Owais Shah, 5 Paul Collingwood, 6 Matt Prior (wk), 7 Dimitri Mascarenhas, 8 Stuart Broad, 9 Gareth Batty, 10 Steve Harmison, 11 James Anderson . The Windies look like this: 1 Chris Gayle, 2 Lendl Simmons, 3 Ramnaresh Sarwan, 4 Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 5 Kieron Pollard, 6 Dwayne Bravo, 7 Darren Sammy, 8 Denesh Ramdin (wk), 9 Nikita Miller, 10 Lionel Baker, 11 Fidel Edwards.
13:00 - Welcome to Guyana for the second one-day international between West Indies and England. For the first time in a long time, England go into a match leading a series, having snuck home in the first one-dayer the other day thanks to John Dyson's Duckworth-Lewis malfunction.
