Hales added to England squad in West Indies

Today, that support came in the inevitable form of Joe Root who, after being dropped twice early in his innings, reached his ninth one-day worldwide century.

But Ben Stokes biffed 34 off 20 balls to at least see the tourists post the first score above 300 in the three-match series, which they've already won, leading 2-0 going into this final game.

England finished the innings on 328 all out from exactly 50 overs, with last man Plunkett run out from the final ball.

From a scratchy start, and one that saw England post just 39 for one from their first 10 overs, Root began to find greater fluency as he and Hales made up for lost time.

That fact again underlines the problems now engulfing the game in the Caribbean, with most of the West Indies' first-choice players overlooked for this series for political reasons.

Hales hoisted five sixes and stroked nine fours in his 107-ball innings, although it was his dismissal in the 37th over off Joseph which resulted in the change of pace.

He produced a fine delivery to hold up from the angle and hit the top of Jason Mohammed's off-stump, and then took two in two as Shai Hope chipped a third catch into the leg-side ring and Holder got an inside-edge to the wicketkeeper.




Victories by 45 runs in the opening ODI and four wickets in the second match, both in Antigua, have given Eoin Morgan's team a welcome boost ahead of the upcoming Champions Trophy.

This latest innings, which owed much to drops that reprieved him on one and 12, helped set the seal on what represents England's first-ever away series whitewash against the West Indies in any form of cricket.

So it was perhaps some kind of comfort to Stokes that he dismissed Brathwaite with his first delivery to him since that epic finale in India.

The Warwickshire paceman struck with his third ball, getting Evin Lewis caught and bowled without scoring, and followed up with another in his second over, Kraigg Brathwaite clipping straight to Hales at midwicket for 5.

Joseph and captain Jason Holder shared seven wickets.

It was one they did not cede, even if the loss of eight wickets for 109 runs in the final 14 overs meant their total was perhaps more modest than they might have hoped for.
