England won by 3 wkts | West Indies Vs England Live Score, 2nd ODI

The series is now level at 1-1 and the final ODI will be played at the same venue on Wednesday. Do join us for all the action. For now, cheers and bye..
Parry: 'One of the proudest moments in my life. Six months ago, I never thought I would wear the England camp. I just wanted to keep things simple, nice to get a win as well. I was not nervous about batting.
Broad: Delighted to have won. We made things hard for ourselves while chasing. Our bowling was outstanding, to bowl them out for 159 was a great effort. We knew it would not be an easy chase, scoring runs on this wicket is not that easy. Need to adjust to the pitch quickly. Ravi is a strong finisher, he hs taken the responsibility to win games for us. We broke our target into equations of 5 runs each, always knew we could win.
Bravo: 'Poor batting display two times in a row. Diffficult to' expect lower order to always pull things back. We need to do better as a unit in the next game. We wanted to keep fighting till the end, I am happy with the effort of our bowlers. There will be some harsh words though for not playing the full 50 overs.
The series is now level at 1-1. England made heavy weather of the modest chase before Bopara and Broad took them home. West Indies will rue some missed chances as they look back at the match. Bopara was composed while Broad made most of his early escapes to steer their team home. The bowling was tidy, particularly the spinners, but the lack of runs meant that England were never under any pressure.
