England thrash West Indies to seal series whitewash
Mar 10, 2017, 00:43
The second-wicket pair put together a stand of 192 in 30 overs of an otherwise patchy England innings in pursuit of their first ODI whitewash of West Indies in the Caribbean. As expected, Hales was the only change to the England team from the first two matches, replacing Sam Billings at the top of the order with the visitors playing their strongest available squad as they seek to maintain a winning momentum heading into the Champions Trophy at home in June. The West Indies was 13-3 and unable to recover.

He lost opening partner Jason Roy for 17 and was joined by Root.
Root rode his luck a little to register his ninth century in this format, with 10 fours from 107 balls.

Hales was eventually dismissed attempting a slog off young paceman Alzarri Joseph, toe ending the ball straight to Ashley Nurse at fine leg and departing to a well-earned standing ovation.
His 110 here was his fifth ODI century but given the circumstances it may have felt even sweeter for Hales than the England-record 171 he bludgeoned against Pakistan at Trent Bridge last August.
Carlos Brathwaite, the man who hit Ben Stokes for four successive sixes in the final over to win his side the tournament, is the only home player to survive from that dramatic match in Kolkata. The odds were against this depleted side, but its chase was over before it really started.
Extra bounce from Steven Finn and Woakes brought three simple catches with the new ball, two at midwicket and one straight back to the bowler.
Stokes then exacted instant revenge for last year's ICC World Twenty20 mauling from Carlos Brathwaite by pinning his fellow all-rounder lbw with the only ball he bowled at him in the series.
