England won the Only T20I against West Indies at Trent Bridge, Nottingham by 7 wickets with two balls to spare. Opener Alex Hales was the hero of the match for the hosts but unfortunately was dismissed one short of a maiden international century.
It has been a tour West Indies would like to forget. There has been no resurrection of any sorts, if at all anyone expected so. They were run over by the Englishmen on the basis of superior talent, and failed to compete in the one-dayers as well despite the presence of Chris Gayle and Sunil Narine.
England have rested three of its bowlers for the Third and Final ODI against West Indies to be played on the 22nd at Leeds. With the series already captured 2-0, the English Selectors have decided to give opportunity to the likes of pacers Jade Dernbach, Chris Woakes and off-spinner James Tredwell.
A lot was expected of West Indies in the one-day series against England even though they floundered in the Tests. After all, they drew the one-dayers 2-2 against Australia. Sadly, they have only managed to disappoint.
On a day when all eyes were fixed on the returning Chris Gayle, England captain Alastair Cook scored his 12th One Day International (ODI) century which ensured an easy victory over the West Indies at The Oval.
England cruised to an 8-wicket win at The Oval to win the NatWest Series 2-0 with one more match to come. Skipper Alastair Cook scored his 12th ODI century to ease England to victory with five overs to spare in a run chase of 239.
He is back. With the issues being the WICB and Chris Gayle sorted out for now, the dangerous left-hander from West Indies will take the field for his national side as the ODI series begins at Southampton today.
