Gayle’s 27-Ball 77 Leads Windies to Series-Tying Win Over England

Chris Gayle struck a brutal 77 as West Indies crushed England to win the fifth and final one-day international by seven wickets to clinch a 2-2 draw in the series on Saturday, 2 March.

The home team won the toss, electing to field first on a bouncy wicket, and Oshane Thomas proved the star of the bowling show. The paceman took a career-best 5-21 as England was skittled out for 113 in only 28.1 overs, Jos Buttler and Alex Hales joint top-scoring with 23 apiece.

The tourists lost their last five wickets for two runs as they collapsed to their lowest 50-over total against West Indies.

West Indies then rushed to its target in just 12.1 overs with veteran opener Gayle lashing nine sixes and five fours in a swashbuckling 27-ball innings.

The third match of the series was abandoned as a draw without a ball being bowled.
