Eng­land take ODI se­ries

The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - Sport -

Lon­don — Eng­land sur­vived without Ben Stokes as Moeen Ali set up vic­tory over West Indies in the rain-short­ened fourth one-day in­ter­na­tional on Wed­nes­day to clinch the se­ries.

Ali hit 48 from 25 balls and he and Jos But­tler put to­gether a per­fectly-timed and un­bro­ken part­ner­ship of 77 from 48 balls to lift Eng­land from well be­hind the re­quired run rate to just ahead when rain fell at the Oval and ended play.

Eng­land fin­ished on 258-5 in 35.1 overs thanks to the late im­pe­tus pro­vided by Ali and But­tler. That was good enough to win by six runs on the Duck­worth-lewis method after West Indies had posted 356-5 from 50 overs thanks to a blis­ter­ing 176 from manof-the-match Evin Lewis, who re­tired hurt after hit­ting the ball onto his own an­kle and sus­tain­ing a hair­line frac­ture.
