Moeen Ali took three wickets as England leveled the five-match T20 series in Barbados

Moeen Ali impressed with bat and ball as England levelled the T20 series despite being made to sweat by a blistering late onslaught from the West Indies lower order.

The tourists were cruising to victory as the game entered its final stages but some remarkable hitting late on, including three sixes from the last three balls for Akeal Hosein, in a 72-run stand with Romario Shepherd, meant Eoin Morgan’s side got home by just one run.

Jason Roy had top-scored with 45 from 31 balls as England, having been rolled for 103 in Saturday’s series opener, put in a far stronger effort to post 171-8 in Barbados.

That looked to be more than enough as West Indies slipped to 65-7 with Moeen (3-24) and Adil Rashid (2-24) excelling through the middle overs.

  • England win by one run to level series at 1-1
  • Jason Roy (45) top-scores as tourists post 170-8
  • West Indies slipped to 65-7 in the chase
  • Moeen Ali (3-24), Adil Rashid (2-24)
  • Unbroken 72-run stand for ninth wicket makes game close
  • Romario Shepherd (44no), Akeal Hosein (44no)

However, from 98-8, Shepherd (44no from 28) and Hosein (44no from 16) went from giving the score a more respectable look to making England fret as Saqib Mahmood (0-45) went the distance in the final over.

What’s next?

England and West Indies face off again in the second T20 international from 8pm on Sunday with games on January 26, 29 and 30 completing the five-match series.

Meanwhile, Heather Knight’s England side will aim to level things up in the Women’s Ashes as they take on Australia in the third T20 in the early hours of Sunday morning. Australia lead the multi-format series 3-1.
