West Indies v England 1989-90

At Kingston, Jamaica, March 3

At Kingston, Jamaica, March 3. West Indies won by three wickets. Toss: England. As Fraser bowled the final ball of the match, West Indies required 2 runs to bring the scores level and win on the tie-breaker of fewer wickets. Bishop left no room for dispute by off-driving mightily for four. This thrilling climax disguised a game of no great distinction, although it doubtless helped replace mislaid confidence in the West Indian camp. Any relief they felt, however, was counteracted by the news that Marshall had broken a a bone at the base of his left index finger while trying to take a return catch. As Greenidge had missed the match with a recurrence of back trouble, injury problems were mounting for West Indies. Their match-winners here were Bishop, who not only struck the decisive blow, but took four cheap wickets as England were confined to 214, and Richardson, who made his third one-day international hundred. Missed four times, he faced 124 balls for his century and hit three sixes and ten fours.
