19.6 Bravo to Ali, 1 run, OUT

Slaps across the line, out towards long-on... Moeen will be run out here, going for a non-existent seocnd

19.4 Bravo to Stokes, OUT

Excellent slower ball from Bravo and Stokes is pinned in front! Completely off balance, playing across the line and the ball struck him on the boot in front of middle and leg

Over 18: 10 off Bravo and the wicket of Buttler. 152/4

Over 15: A six from Morgan and the wicket of Root in that Russell over. 123/3

14.2 Russell to Root, OUT

Tries to go over the top but picks out mid-off! Root huffs and puffs but he’s the one blown down, think that was another slower ball and he plinked it off the toe of the bat straight to the man on the edge of the ring

Flicked to leg - and straight to midwicket! Roy is gone, Russell the man to strike!

West Indies captain Darren Sammy won the toss and opted to bowl first in his side’s World T20 opener against England in Mumbai on Wednesday.

Sammy explained his decision, saying the wicket looked to have a bit of grass and he would want his bowlers to try and exploit the conditions first.

Sammy’s England counterpart Eoin Morgan said he too would have opted to bowl, adding that dew could pose a problem bowling second.
