Share post:

BRIDGETOWN – West Indies, spurred by Shimron Hetmyer’s fourth century, made 289 for six off their 50 overs after they were sent in to bat by England  in the second Colonial Medical Insurance One Day International at Kensington Oval here Friday.

Left-hander Hetmyer stroked seven fours and hit four sixes in an unbeaten 104 off 83 balls.

Veteran opener Chris Gayle followed up his 135 on Wednesday with an even 50 off 63 balls. He struck four sixes and a solitary four but was bowled by leg-spinner Adil Rashid attempting a big heave.

Shai Hope contributed 33 off 45 balls with a four and two sixes while Darren Bravo and John Campbell made 24 and 23 respectively.

West Indies’ cause was not helped as captain Jason Holder was run out for just three.

England, who won the first ODI by six wickets, require 290 runs for a second straight victory.
