England complete series victory
England completed a 2-0 NatWest Series win in style as West Indies were defeated by 58 runs at Edgbaston.
Matt Prior's 87, his highest score in a one-day international, and 75 from Owais Shah helped England to 328 for seven, their third-highest score in 50-over history.
Their stand included 55 runs from the five overs of the batting powerplay, which England opted to take after 37 overs.
They were able to express themselves against a wayward West Indies team thanks to the platform laid by captain Andrew Strauss, who struck 52, and Ravi Bopara, who fell one run shy of a half-century.
Two early wickets with the new ball for England effectively sealed their second comfortable series win over the West Indians inside a month.
Veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul hit 68 but the required run rate had climbed to 12 per over by the time he shovelled a delivery from Stuart Broad to midwicket.
