West Indies suffered a 186-run defeat against England in the third One-day International in Bridgetown, Barbados on Thursday. This was the Caribbean side's heaviest loss against England in an ODI in terms of runs, while it also marked the first occasion since 1991 that England had swept an ODI series against the West Indies 3-0.

Chasing 329 for victory, the Windies were bowled out for 142 in 39.2 overs, as Chris Woakes and Liam Plunkett collected three wickets apiece to undermine their batting on a hard, true Kensington Oval pitch.

Left-hander Jonathan Carter, playing on home soil, led the way with 46 and rookie Alzarri Joseph, batting at 11, made 22 – but no other West Indies batsman reached 20.
