At Bridgetown, Barbados, April 3. West Indies won by four wickets. Toss: West Indies. Delayed by rain, and reduced to 38 overs per side, this game was won by West Indies more easily than a result off the third ball of the last over might suggest. England thus lost the one-day series 3-0, but of greater concern to them, with just the final two Tests to play, was their ever-lengthening injury list. Fraser was ruled out of this match with a rib muscle strain, Stewart's injured finger was not risked, and the replacement for Gooch, David Smith, was hit on the thumb by the same bowler who broke Gooch's hand, Moseley. Smith made only 5, but Larkins, Robin Smith and Lamb all played handsomely to give England a useful total. West Indies, required to score at almost 6 an over, were always up with the rate, with Best's 51 from 44 balls being an especially violent innings. They lost four wickets for 22 with the game in their pockets, but Dujon saw them safely home.

Man of the Match: R. B. Richardson.
