West Indies won the third and final test against England at Barbados’ Kensington Oval by five wickets to tie the series 1-1.

Set a target of 192 to win on the third day, after bowling England out for 123, the home side knocked off the total thanks mainly to a 108 run fifth wicket partnership between Darren Bravo (82) and Jermaine Blackwood (47 not out).

The home side’s opening pair of Kraigg Brathwaite and Shai Hope survived one over from James Anderson before lunch on Sunday to go in at four without loss.

Resuming on 39 for five, England were undone by a combination of Veerasammy Permaul’s slow left-arm spin and Jason Holder’s seam.

Local favourite Holder trapped England’s Barbados born all-rounder Chris Jordan lbw and then yorked Stuart Broad with the next delivery.

Jos Buttler (35 not out) and James Anderson (2) put on a potentially important 25-run partnership before Jerome Taylor returned to the attack and had Anderson removed lbw after review.

  1. When the Windies win! The thrill of victory… waw o waw. I am so proud to be called a West Indian. Our boys played with a level of maturity that, in the eyes of many defied the stats and logic.

  2. Good win for WI. Good to see the youngsters doing it. Like I said Lil Bravo is the future along with Blackwood and Braithwaite. Shiv should go now, he is keeping Johnson out of the side. Good to see Permaul doing well to prove to the selectors he deserve to be there. I am happy we need to aim for more draw series against top ranked teams,then the wins will come.
