Playing in front a colourful crowd of over 10,000, Windies were bowled out for 159 in the 45th over. Lendl Simmons topscored with 70 off 98 balls, including four fours and two sixes.

West Indies struck back to have England seven wickets down for 105 but the visitors battled back to reach 163-7 to level the three-match series.
