England bounced back from Thursday's 104-run drubbing by the West Indies to win the second one-day cricket international by three wickets at Trent Bridge today.

It was the West Indies' second one-day defeat in 25 matches and sets the scene for a tense decider of the three-match series at Lord's on Tuesday.

The West Indies struggled to 179 in 48.3 of its allotted 50 overs in a matched shortened by a rain-delayed start.

Captain Clive Lloyd top-scored with 52 but Viv Richards, who slammed 189 off England at Manchester on Thursday, was out for three.

Recalled all-rounder Derek Pringle had a hand in dismissing five of the first six West Indies batsmen, picking up three himself and taking catches to dismiss Lloyd and Richards.

A middle-order collapse threatened to rob England of victory but the tailenders hung on in the face of inspired fast bowling by Michael Holding and Joel Garner.

Everything went England's way as
its batsmen muddled their way to victory. Lancashire's Andy Lloyd, playing his second game for England, top-scored with 49.

England's new captain, David Gower, looked good scoring 36 but there was still a certain frailty about the England middle-order.

Mike Gatting was all at sea against Holding and Garner, squirting the ball to fine leg three times off the inside edge before chopping a Garner off-cutter on to his stumps.

Fittingly, perhaps, it was Pringle who scored the winning runs, a delicate stroke off his toes through the leg-side that only failed to reach the boundary because some spectators had swarmed on to the pitch to celebrate the win.

Gower won the toss and asked the West Indies to bat. After openers Gordon Greenidge (20) and Desmond Haynes (four) had been dismissed with the score at 38, the scene was set for Richards to reproduce his magnificent form.

Andy Lloyd took his score to 49 before he was caught behind off Baptiste. Gower batted responsibly for 36 and Allan Lamb and Mike Gatting fell cheaply.
