Yes, cut off at 20.45 and England ahead.

And Lewis has a fractured ankle.

Feels as though D/L benefited England a lot there. 186-5 after 28 with 171 to get at 7.77 in 22 overs would have been very, very tough. 70 to get at 10 in 7 overs with Moeen and Buttler at the crease - much more achievable.

Despite England being ahead of the D/L target when rain came, I'd say the game was really in the balance - 101 to get off 15 with 5 wickets in hand. If Buttler and Moeen had stayed, they would have done it, but it was by no means a done deal. Lucky escape for England IMO. Not to take away from what Moeen, Buttler and Roy achieved, but one feels that Lewis and Joseph in particular were hard done by. Lewis' innings was the third highest individual ODI score in a losing cause

No Holder for the final ODI will mean one very long tail for the WIs.

Carlos Brathwaite called up for WI. I guess he'll replace Holder.

Im guessing this has already been discussed here, but with all this weather, why have the ECB scheduled a international match in the UK for the second last day of september?

It seems really late, how normal is this?

Just for cover....

Curran is replacing Woakes who "hasn't pulled up very well after The Oval." That's the only change for England

West Indies have made two changes: Kyle Hope for Evin Lewis and Sunil Ambris, on debut, replaces Jason Holder

Gayle out for a quickfire 40.

Kyle out for 33...two down.

I reckon this must be the latest game ever in ENgland. I don't think they've played in October before anyway.
