Evin Lewis’s sublime career-best hundred and Alzarri Joseph’s maiden five-wicket haul both proved in vain as West Indies crashed to a six-run defeat under Duckworth/Lewis in the fourth One-Day International, to concede the five-match series to England yesterday.
Chasing a difficult 357 for victory at the Oval following Lewis’s 176, England were 258 for five in the 36th over — ahead of the D/L par score of 252 – when the adverse weather drove players from the field at 7.35 pm 2.35 p.m. (T&T time).
With the drizzles persisting, officials called play off at 8.10 p.m., leaving a disappointed West Indies with their sixth straight ODI series defeat to England and without a tour victory over a higher-ranked side in five years.
This statistic seemed destined to change when the Caribbean side romped to 356 for five off their 50 overs – their fourth highest total in ODIs and highest-ever against England.
