Windies Fold Yet Again To Hand England 3 to Nil Series Win

The Englishmen climaxed their grueling tour of the West Indies, by securing a consolation, comprehensive 3 to nil victory over home team Windies, to take the T-20 series.
Windies would have won the test series 2 to 1 and drawn the one day series 2 to 2 but failed to compete in the format in which they were most expected to.
On Friday 8th March, the Englishman made 184 and amazingly bowled out the home team for a mere 45 runs.
So, on Sunday 10th March, the home fans again came out in their numbers, with the hope that the home team would salvage some pride.
Overcast conditions at the Park, due to a nearby bush fire, gave ominous warning signs but the match proceeded without a glitch.
Windies won the toss and elected to bat first and soon were in early trouble, as wickets fell to loose shots, at regular intervals, with Shai Hope dismissed with the very first bail.
One Spectator yelled: ‘Umpire, you aint realize the fire got dem man can’t see? We appeal for light!’
The Windies team limped to 71 all out, in 13 overs, much to the chagrin of the home fans.

The visitors duly knocked off the target in just 11.3 overs, losing just 2 wickets in the process, allowing for the many Nevisians to get an early return trip home.
Summarized scores: England 72 for 2 (Bairstow 37, Hales 20) beat West Indies 71 (Willey 4-7, Wood 3-9) by eight wickets
