Windies lose series
ST JOHN’S – West Indies produced an erratic performance as they slumped to another series loss, in a four-wicket defeat to England in the second One-Day International of the three-match series yesterday.
Hampered by a plethora of soft dismissals, the hosts could only muster 225 all out off 47.5 overs, after opting to bat first at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium.
Jason Mohammed carved out his second half-century in as many games with exactly 50 while Kraigg Brathwaite got a sluggish 42 and left-hander Jonathan Carter, a breezy 39.
In reply, England twice recovered from dangerous positions to reach their target in the penultimate over, with Joe Root stroking an unbeaten 90 and Chris Woakes an enterprising 68 not out. (CMC)
