Root scores century
CRICKET: Joe Root scored a century as England manhandled a depleted West Indies attack to lead the dead rubber third test by 448 runs after three days. England, 123 runs up on the first innings, cruised from 19 without loss at the start of the day to be 325-4 at stumps. Root was 111 not out, reaching his first half-century and century in eight innings, with the West Indies already having won the series, 2-0.
