West Indies 115 for 3 (Chris Gayle 77) beat England 113 (Oshane Thomas 5-21) by 7 wickets.
West Indies skipper, Jason Holder won the toss and elected to bowl first in the fifth and final ODI of the series. The hosts struck early, removing opener Johnny Bairstow in the second over bowled by Sheldon Cottrell. Joe Root lost his wicket an over later leaving the visitors 18-2.
Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan looked to pull things back for England but never looked comfortable facing the West Indies seamers. Morgan was out done by pace and bounce off a short and quick Thomas’ delivery for 18. The short ball would wreak havoc in the English middle order, accounting for Ali, Woakes and Buttler off the bowling of Thomas. The tail could not provide any assistance as batsman eight, nine,10 and 11 all fell for a duck, England bowled out for 113 in only 28.1 overs.
The Windies needed 114 runs from 50 overs at a run rate of 2.28 per over which never looked like a defendable score for the visitors. Chris Gayle continued with his good form striking his half century from only 19 deliveries, the fastest ODI 50 by a Windies batsman. Mark Wood finally got the wicket of Gayle on the last ball of his over after his first five deliveries to Gayle went for 26. England could only manage to get three wickets, a couple from Wood and a single from Woakes. West Indies chased the total comfortably to win in 12.1 overs, the match only lasting 40.2 overs.
