Result: England win by 3 wickets

England 1st innings

End of Over 45 (5 runs)

England: 163-7 (rr 3.62)

44.5
Four Runs
FOUR! Smith to Broad. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs.

Broad gets hold of that one and England have won by three wickets to level the series. He throws his arms up in the air and screams to the boundary, showing how much that victory means to him and his country.

England began the game well, restricting their opponents to 30-3 inside the first 8 overs. Lendl Simmons then battled to 70, aided by contributions from both Bravo's, but the West Indies could only make 159, losing their last wicket with 34 balls remaining in the innings. Stephen Parry was the pick of the bowlers, taking 3-32 on debut.

England seemed very settled in their response and reached 79-2 off 20 overs. Four wickets for ten runs then put the home side in charge, only for Ravi Bopara and Stuart Broad to put on 58 for the 8th wicket to take the game.

The series decider will take place on Wednesday at the same ground.
