England beat West Indies by 29 runs in astonishing ODI

England’s Joss Buttler hit 150 off just 77 balls in an incredible match

Jos Buttler and Eoin Morgan made centuries before Adil Rashid took four wickets in five balls as England beat West Indies by 29 runs in an astonishing fourth one-day international of the series in Grenada on Wednesday.

Spectators were left ducking for cover as the teams piled up 46 sixes in St. George’s — 24 by England and 22 by West Indies.

England scored 418 for six off their 50 overs, a score which West Indies impressively chased, with opener Chris Gayle smashing 162 from 97 balls.

Leg-spinner Rashid clinched victory by wrapping up the West Indies’ tail with his four wicket-burst in the 48th over that dismissed the home team for 389.

The victory gave England a 2-1 lead in the series, which lost a game when rain washed out Monday’s third match in Grenada.

The final match will be in St. Lucia on Saturday.
