The Windies though, pulled one back in the following game that took place at the same venue, winning by 26 runs. The architects of the win were Jos Buttler and spinner Adil Rashid with the former scoring a career-best 150 while the latter picked up a five-wicket haul.

A ground worker watches from the scoreboard during the fourth ODI between West Indies and England. He and Darren Bravo struck a remarkable 176 runs off 17.5 overs to help Windies claw their way back into the game before Mark Wood returned to swing the match back in England's favour by removing Bravo (61) and Hetmyer (6) in the same over.

Buttler top-scored with 150 to claim Man-of-the-Match honours, while Morgan chipped in with 103, the pair posting 204 in a magnificent fourth wicket partnership, which floored the Windies. Gayle hit 11 four and a staggering 14 sixes during his knock.

The final equation left the West Indies seeking 95 from the last 10 overs, with Brathwaite and Nurse surpassing low expectations in a boundary-strewn cameo that threatened to add one final twist to a day full of entertainment.

Batting first, England were off to a sizzling start courtesy Jonny Bairstow and Alex Hales as the duo fired on all the cylinders right from the word go. "It nearly needed something special to win us the game with the ball and that was Adil Rashid alongside Mark Wood".

"I thought the West Indies played so well and gave it their all. A lot people talk of them being (rated) number nine in the world, but there's not a huge difference between the two teams".

One is a new MI6 agent and the other is a friend to James Bond not unlike Olga Kurylenko's character in Quantum of Solace . Producers have reportedly met with other actors to play the role, but Malek has always been the top choice, apparently.

England's innings was the highest ever on Caribbean soil and sits third on their all-time list, achievements that would not have been possible without a stunning attack that brought 154 runs from the final 10 overs.

England's total surpassed the 23 hit by West Indies in the first game last week, while the combined tally bettered the 38 sixes hit by India and Australia in Bengaluru in 2013.

The 39-year-old Jamaican...

When Holder departed at 301 for six, West Indies chances appeared extinguished.

However Brathwaite, who registered a maiden ODI fifty, and Nurse (43) kept up with the required rate in an entertaining stand. "Credit to Chris again though for the way he batted".
