St Lucia, March 02 at 08:30 PM IST
What a sensational series it has been so far. England leads the five-match ODI series by 2-1 with the fifth and final ODI scheduled to be played tomorrow at Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia. The clash is set to begin at 08:0 PM IST.
Centuries from skipper Eoin Morgan (103 off 88) and Jos Buttler (150 of 77) powered England to their highest ever ODI total against Windies, 418 for 6. While it always looked like a massive task for the home side, the run chase was powered by the Universal Boss who slammed 162 runs off just 97 deliveries. At a time, Windies looked well in control of the run chase and were paving for a remarkable victory but Adil Rashid's fifer (5-85) in the end bowled out Windies for 389-10 and the home side fell short by 29 runs. Rashid bagged four wickets in the 48th over and Windies were bowled out!
Now, with the last game scheduled to take place tomorrow, let's see if Windies manage to bounce back and level the series.
