    Holy fearsome tweak! I didn't even know that was possible :eek:

    England could have well been set for 300 going on their first 2 overs :p

    Was hoping to update this but haven't had a chance yet. Busy for the next few days, hopefully will finish the game in a week.

    Commentary

    England have set West Indies 203 to win from their ten overs. The powerful Chris Gayle comes out to face James Anderson alongside Kieran Powell.

    0.1 - Two - Starts with a full ball outside off which Gayle gets a thick edge to and runs a quick two.
    0.2 - FOUR - Short at Gayle's body and he just stands tall and pulls it through the leg side. The fielders have no chance as they watch it fly to the boundary,
    0.3 - FOUR - This is very leg side and Gayle does well to get this out of the middle in front of square. Again the outfield is lightening fast and it races away for four.
    0.4 - SIX - BANG. This is as out of the middle as you can get. He leans back and slashes this high over the point boundary for six. Great batting.
    0.5 - Dot - Gayle gets his front leg out the way to heave this deep into the leg side. It strikes him on the pad sparking a small appeal which is turned down.
    0.6 - Two - Great end to the over from Anderson. Gayle doesn't get hold of a leg side slog at all and they run two down to long on.

    West Indies 18/0 - Gayle 18*(6), Powell 0*(0), Anderson 1-0-18-0

    Steven Finn takes the other end.

    1.1 - Two - Powell's first ball and Finn tests him with a bouncer. He plays it too early and it comes off the toe of the bat for two.
    1.2 - SIX - No such problems this time for Powell, however, as he flays a short and wide ball over the offside all the way for six.
    1.3 - SIX - Back-to-back sixes! Back of a length, this time at the body but it's just helped over the boundary with some superb timing from Powell.
    1.4 - OUT - Brilliant reply from Finn. This is back of a length too but it doesn't get up as much as Powell expected and goes underneath his attempted pull shot, clipping the bails on it's way through.

    Powell - Bowled (Finn) - 14 (4)

    The experienced Ramnaresh Sarwan is in.

    1.5 - FOUR - Classic shot from Sarwan to begin with. This is a proper cricket shot as he flicks the ball wide of midwicket all along the deck for four.
    1.6 - FOUR - Carbon copy of the previous ball. Once again it is on his pads and it goes in the same direction to the boundary.

    West Indies 40/1 - Gayle 18*(6), Sarwan 8*(2), Finn 1-0-22-1

    Anderson will bowl his second.

    2.1 - FOUR - Gayle now gets in on the action, clipping Anderson through midwicket for four. Three almost identical shots in a row.
    2.2 - OUT - He's gone now though. He gets on one knee and top edges a straight ball from Anderson. Midwicket doesn't have to move and takes a simple catch.

    Gayle - Caught (Root) Bowled (Anderson) - 22 (8)

    West Indies in big trouble as Dwayne Bravo strides to the crease.

    2.3 - SIX - That's how you respond to trouble. First ball and he just smashes this flat over deep square leg for six. Bravo setting out his intentions early.
    2.4 - SIX - And again! Same ball but this time he pulls it a lot straighter, between midwicket and mid on, flat for six more.
    2.5 - SIX - It's a hat-trick of sixes for Bravo. Short is not working for Anderson and he gives Bravo width outside the off stump. This cut flies over backward point and into the stands.
    2.6 - SIX - FOUR IN A ROW! Almost the same ball again and it gets exactly the same treatment. Poor bowling by Anderson but Bravo has got West Indies back on track big time. He has the maximum available score from four balls. They are still five runs behind England at the same stage with an extra wicket lost, mind you.

    West Indies 68/2 - Sarwan 8*(2), Dw.Bravo 24*(4), Anderson 2-0-46-1

    Commentary

    Finn to finish his spell.

    3.1 - Two - Quick delivery and Sarwan gets the toe of the bat. It rolls into the leg side for two.
    3.2 - Three - Flowing cover drive but it's not quite out of the middle of the bat. It's cut off on the boundary edge and they run three.
    3.3 - Two - They need boundaries desperately. Bravo finally fails to hit a six, hitting this high but not far and gets a lucky two.
    3.4 - SIX - That was only a blip it seems. Back to hitting sixes for Bravo who dances down the track and swats a short ball over midwicket for six.
    3.5 - Dot - He looks leg side again but he gets nowhere near it. Should have been playing this on the off side.
    3.6 - SIX - That's number six! Short from Finn and it flies off the top edge over third man for another maximum. Good over from Finn in the circumstances as the run rate climbs further.

    West Indies 87/2 - Sarwan 13*(4), Dw.Bravo 38*(8), Finn 2-0-41-1

    Time for Stuart Broad to come into the attack.

    4.1 - FOUR - Very full from Broad to begin with and Sarwan again favours that midwicket boundary, stroking it all the way to the fence.
    4.2 - FOUR - This is poor from England. They are feeding Sarwan here with too man straight deliveries on his pads. Four more on the leg side.
    4.3 - FOUR - Straight, hit to leg, another four. All too easy for Sarwan.
    4.4 - Two - Better. This is shorter and outside off stump and Sarwan plays it late. It comes off the bottom edge and flies down to third man for a couple.
    4.5 - SIX - WOW! That is the shot of the day from Sarwan. He gets his front leg out the way, swings through the line of a good length ball on off stump and smashes it into the second tier straight down the ground. Sensational hit.
    4.6 - SIX - This is brilliant batting by the veteran man in this West Indies side. It's full outside off and he leans into it and it sails way over the cover boundary. Massive over, 24 from it.

    West Indies 113/2 - Sarwan 39*(10), Dw.Bravo 38*(8), Broad 1-0-24-0

    Spin time. Graeme Swann to bowl.

    5.1 - OUT - The change works. Short, no turn but somehow Bravo smashes it straight to midwicket and Eoin Morgan makes no mistake with the catch.

    Dw.Bravo - Caught (Morgan) Bowled (Swann) - 38 (9)

    In steps the other Bravo brother, Darren.

    5.2 - Dot - Great bowling. The run rate rises massively with these two deliveries as Bravo misses outside the off stump.
    5.3 - OUT - This could prove to be the winning over. Bravo is gone for a duck as he misses a straight one from Swann and it knocks back his middle stump.

    Da.Bravo - Bowled (Swann) - 0 (2)

    Pressure on big hitting Kieron Pollard now.

    5.4 - FOUR - Finally Swann concedes a run as Pollard leans into one outside the off stump and times it well to the cover boundary.
    5.5 - Dot - Unbelievable over from Swann. Short but Pollard makes no connection on the cut shot.
    5.6 - FOUR - Another boundary but West Indies need sixes. He helps this off his legs and gets his second four of the over. Only eight from it though.

    West Indies 121/4 - Sarwan 39*(10), Pollard 8*(3), Swann 1-0-8-2

    Spin has been working today and that's why Joe Root is into the attack.

    6.1 - FOUR - Straight ball tossed up by Root and Sarwan helps it on it's way back over his head. It beats the diving fielder and goes for four.
    6.2 - SIX - Another brilliant six from Sarwan has he cracks this one over cover and all the way into the crowd.
    6.3 - FOUR - Short and this is easy for Sarwan as he rocks back and pulls it for four through his favourite area, midwicket. That's his fifty.
    6.4 - OUT - Fifty and out though as West Indies continue to lose wickets. Short and he's chipped this to midwicket. It's a very poor dismissal. England celebrate.

    Sarwan - Caught (Woakes) Bowled (Root) - 53 (14)

    Devon Thomas comes in.

    6.5 - OUT - West Indies are capitulating. Short and pulled straight to midwicket. They are in danger of being the first team to be bowled out in the competition. Hat-trick ball on the way for Root.

    Thomas - Caught (Morgan) Bowled (Root) - 0 (1)

    Darren Sammy is West Indies last talented batsman.

    6.6 - OUT - HE'S DONE IT! Hat-trick for Joe Root! Unbelievable spell of cricket as Darren Sammy gets a feather behind to Jos Buttler. That is surely game over.

    Sammy - Caught (Buttler) Bowled (Root) - 0 (1)

    West Indies 135/7 - Pollard 8*(3), Holder 0*(0), Root 1-0-14-3

    I was planning on doing scorecards but the updates take up enough time as it is. Screenshots are difficult because the bowlers are the all-stars with me just pretending they're the opposition players. I start work on Monday so updates will be hard to come by, but I'll stick with it.

    Commentary

    Swann to bowl once more. Conceded just 8 from his first over.

    7.1 - FOUR - He tosses this one up but it's misdirected and heading down the leg side. Pollard helps himself to a simple boundary to the right of midwicket.
    7.2 - SIX - Danger time for England now. Pollard opens his body open and mows this over cow corner for a big six. Swann has gone for more in the last two balls than he did in his first six.
    7.3 - Dot - Good reply from Swann who finds some spin and beats Pollard who looks for another big hit.
    7.4 - FOUR - Dragged down and that's easy for Pollard who slaps it off the back foot for four.
    7.5 - FOUR - Swept and swept very well by Pollard. Down on one knee he hits this all the way along the floor and picks up his fourth boundary of the over.
    7.6 - Dot - That puts it back in England's hands as Pollard misses out on a bit of width outside off stump. West Indies need 50 from 12 balls.

    West Indies 153/7 - Pollard 26*(9), Holder 0*(0) Swann 2-0-26-2

    Root is back, looking for four wickets in four balls.

    8.1 - SIX - Holder isn't thinking about Root's last over as he launches a very full ball pitched outside off high into the stands over cover. More of those needed.
    8.2 - OUT - Root has four wickets in five balls! This is incredible. He's found the edge once again as Jos Buttler takes a smart catch behind the stumps. Who would have though Root's bowling would be the key?

    Holder - Caught (Buttler) Bowled (Root) - 6 (2)

    Down to the bowlers. In comes Sunil Narine.

    8.3 - Three - Narine slaps a short ball to leg but a great stop at midwicket limits it to three. Boundaries needed.
    8.4 - FOUR - Pollard continues to try and he gets another boundary down the ground this time. 37 off 8 - sixes needed!
    8.5 - Dot - That pretty much wraps it up. No turn and it beats Pollard.
    8.6 - Three - Again no boundary but Pollard keeps the strike with a three into the leg side. Five sixes and a four needed from the last. Amazing two overs from Joe Root.

    West Indies 169/8 - Pollard 33*(12), Narine 3*(1), Root 2-0-35-1

    Woakes is on for the final over.

    9.1 - SIX - Well there's one of the five or six needed. Short and slashed away over point for six. 28 needed from 5. AKA - a miracle.
    9.2 - Three - There will be no miracle. A tie game is still on the cards after a three into the leg side but it'll need four sixes in a row from number 10 Narine.
    9.3 - SIX - Hope. Full ball from Woakes and Narine just slogs this anywhere. It flies off the middle in front of square on the leg side and is caught in the stands.
    9.4 - Three - That truly is game over. Slower ball from Woakes and Narine can only get an inside edge fine down to fine leg for three. An impossible 16 off 2 needed.
    9.5 - Two - Pollard can't get hold of a leg side ball and they scamper a two this time.
    9.6 - Two - No flourish to finish as Pollard again doesn't get a hold of a leg side ball and just runs two to the off side. England win by 11 runs.

    West Indies 191/8 - Pollard 46*(16), Narine 12*(3), Woakes 1-0-22-0

    England win by 11 runs

    Forget about the screens then. Scorecards will do.

    I am certainly impressed Treva, some excellent commentary, played SC a long while ago, mostly the All Star slog, bring back memories.
