David Willey stars, England demolish Windies
The third and last of the series at St. Kitts and Nevis seemingly copied the leisure book of the second one; the difference lay in the position of the innings where Windies chased in the previous occasion and batted first on Sunday, but the result have been seen inevitably similar.
Windies bettered only by 26 runs from their earlier total as they collapsed to 71 within 13 overs of their innings. England, meanwhile, spent just half of the innings to seize the victory losing 2 wickets.
Winning the toss, Windies set to bat first perhaps hoping to have a preferable show that curtailed in the very first delivery of the innings when Shai Hope spooned David Willey only to be caught by Hales.
So the catastrophe began, the Caribbean side were all on their way of losing wickets; frustratingly enough for Windies, there were no one to build the dam, the highest score was only 11 – scored by Campbell, Pooran and Holder.
Windies lost their last six wickets for 26 runs as Wood and Rashid came to the fore, with two of Wood’s wickets courtesy of superb catches.
Left armer Willey took out the hosts’ top four in his first three overs.
England, therefore, were in hurry to finish things off. Jonny Bairstow, man of the match in the first match in St Lucia five days earlier, hammered 37 off 31 balls with two sixes and four fours and compiling 3 fours, Hales added 20 runs off 13.
Bairstow fell to Devendra Bishoo with victory in sight leaving captain Eoin Morgan to charter a six and a four off successive deliveries to seal the comprehensive result.
Windies 71 all out (13 overs)
Jason Holder 11, John Campbell 11, Nicholas Pooran 11
David Willey 4/7, Mark Wood 3/9, Adil Rashid 1/18
England 72/2 (10.3 overs)
Jonny Bairstow 37, Alex Hales 20, Eoin Morgan 10
Jason Holder 1/19, Devendra Bishoo 1/11
Result: England won by 8 wickets.
