St. John's, Antigua: England's spinners shared eight wickets to dismiss West Indies for 159 in 44.2 overs in the second one-day cricket international on Sunday with Lendl Simmons resisting with a top score of 70 off 98 balls.


  
Newcomer Stephen Parry led the way for the tourists with 3-32 while off-spinners Joe Root (2-15), James Tredwell (2-39) and Moeen Ali (1-11) also impressed.
  
The West Indies, fresh off a dramatic victory in Friday's opening match, collapsed early on to 30-3 after England won the toss and sent them in for the second straight match.
  
Root claimed opener Dwayne Smith (5) to a catch at midwicket and also removed Kirk Edwards (9) thanks to a sharp slip catch by Tredwell.
  
Inbetween, left-hander Kieran Powell (16) chipped a return catch to Ali.
  
Simmons shared successive half century stands with the Bravo brothers, Darren and captain Dwayne, to help revive the innings.
  
Simmons compiled his second straight half century and dominated a fourth wicket stand of 51 with Darren Bravo (13), who eventually dragged on trying to guide Stuart Broad to third man at 81-4 in the 23rd over.
  
Simmons, who hit four fours and two sixes, then added 52 with Dwayne Bravo who hit one boundary in 20 runs off 38 balls before a controversial stumping sparked a decline which saw the final six wickets fall for 26 runs.
  
Bravo was out of his ground after Tredwell's delivery but wicketkeeper Jos Buttler appeared to break the stumps with his gloves as the ball came loose from his grip.
  
After that, the tail subsided meekly with the 28-year-old Parry claiming Simmons to a catch in the deep and adding the scalps of Darren Sammy and Sunil Narine.
