    OUT! and thats it England win by 186 runs & complete a 3-0 clean sweep.

    Adil Rashid, who came onto bowl very late into the innings, managed to pick up the final wicket of Bishoo. Joseph remained not out on 22 runs in middle, to see England players uproot stumps as memorabilia in this historic 186 runs victory.

    This was also West Indies’ fifth highest margin of defeat. With this win England for the first time after 1990, have completed a 3-0 clean sweep over West Indies.

    Apart from Jonathan Carter no other West Indies batsmen has shown the grit and determination to battle it out in the middle. His 61-ball stay has been full of valour and ruggedness. England, on the other hand, have struggled to clean up the tail. Some poor wayward bowling, and wrong lengths have contributed to it.

    This has been a poor show by the West Indies in the final ODI. After a good show at Antigua, the home side has just fallen flat. Coach Stuart Law does not seen happy one bit with such a sad show. Liam Plunkett and Co. have been handed wickets. This only adds more problems for West Indies who badly need points in the ICC ODI Rankings for a place in ICC WORLD CUP 2019.

    Jason Mohammed and Shai Hope, brought some life into a rickety batting line-up. While Mohammed went on aggressive, Hope took the Test route, fending everything the English bowlers dished out. This will be quite a run chase if West Indies successfully achieve it.

    Horrible start for the West Indies. Chris Woakes nabs his second wicket. Kraigg Brathwaite chips a simple catch to Hales at mid wicket much like Kieran Powell did in the first over off Steven Finn. Evin Lewis too gave a simple caught and bowl to Woakes in his first over. Pressure on Shai Hope and Jason Mohammed to bring some strength to this crumbling innings.

    LIVE, WI 7/1 , Brathwaite 0* , Lewis 0*: OUT! Kieran Powell departs for 6. An eventful over indeed. After hitting Steven Finn for a six on the previous ball, Powell holds out to Alex Hales at square leg. Evin Lewis has been declared fit by the doctors after x-rays reviled nothing serious. Kraigg Brathwaite is out in the middle.

    Alzarri Joseph and Jason Holder has been the star for West Indies in the final leg of the England innings.

The pair added 192 runs, while Joseph were the best bowler for West Indies picking 4 for 76.

    After the fall of Joe Root, Moeen Ali and Eoin Morgan the pressure is now completely on the shoulder of Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes to get England past 300-run mark. Alzarri Joseph, who came in for the injured Shannon Gabriel, bowled his heart out to end up with 4-wickets to himself.

    From a position of power England have gone downhill. From 219 for 1 they are now 264 for 5, losing one wicket after every 10-15 run. With Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali still in the middle , England will hope they get their target to 300 run mark. West Indies have made a remarkable comeback in this match in the final 10 overs.

    Couple of quick wickets have brought some normalcy the scoring rate. Introduction of Joseph led to Hales’s departure for 110, while Jos Buttler trying to be cite gave his wicket away cheaply. Joe Root, has now lowered his scoring rate while Eoin Morgan is still getting settled in the middle.

    OUT! Alzarri Joseph gets Hales for 110. Emotional hundred for Alex Hales. His last five 50+ scores have all yielded hundreds. Joe Root, himself is looking next in line for another ton. West Indies bowling has looked out of sorts and uninspired in the middle. England, now will look to get past 350 run mark with 8 wickets in hand.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live blog session of the third and the final One-Day International (ODI) between hosts West Indies and visitors England at the Kensington Oval at Bridgetown, Barbados. I am Vishal Mehra, and I will be bringing to you all the live updates from this tie. England have already won the series by clinching the first two games. Much is at stake in the dead rubber as West Indies will look forward to a consolation win, and crucial points to climb up the ladder in the ICC ODI Rankings. LIVE Cricket Scorecard: West Indies vs England, 3rd ODI at Barbados

West Indies have been terrible in ODIs of late and they have not even qualified for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 that will be held in England. Meanwhile, England continue to look a strong unit under the able leadership of Eoin Morgan. West Indies are fielding a young side and under the new coach Stuart Law, they are aiming to build a side for the future. Carlos Brathwaite, who was the star of the World T20 final, has failed to repeat the same magic. His form with the bat and ball is a serious concern and Rovman Powell might go on to replace the Barbadian all-rounder.

Liam Plunkett has been England’s best bowler in this series. He was down with an upset stomach and therefore if he is not available, it might open up the door for Tom Curran or Jake Ball. England, having won the series, would not mind experimenting with their side. Meanwhile, a fit-again Alex Hales is set to replace Sam Billings at the top of the order. With the Bridgetown track expected to have more pace, expect seamers to play a crucial role in the final game of the tour.

Squads:

West Indies: Jason Holder (c), Devendra Bishoo, Carlos Brathwaite, Kraigg Brathwaite, Jonathan Carter, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope (wk), Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Ashley Nurse, Kieran Powell, Rovman Powell.

England: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Steven Finn, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes.
