England sealed the five-match ODI series with a six-run win (DLS method) over West Indies in the fourth ODI at the Oval on Wednesday. Despite Evin Lewis mindblowing knock of 176 and a well-supported innings of 77 runs by captain Jason Holder, West Indies failed to exert pressure on England batsmen. With Joseph claiming his first five-wicket haul in ODI cricket, Windies bowlers let Moeen Ali and Jos Buttler keep England in the game. Mooen, who scored a century in the previous game, continued his form here as he scored 48 runs off 25 balls before rain interrupted the play. After being reduced to 181/5, Moeen and Buttler added 77 runs for the sixth wicket as England were six runs ahead of the revised total. England, now, have won three ODIs with the second ODI being washed out.
