The number nine ranked Windies surprised the number one ranked England in the five-match ODI series by levelling the rubber 2-2 with one match being abandoned. The home side came into the series on the back of a thumping 2-1 series win in the Test series but their numbers in the 50-over format in the recent past left much to be desired, having not won a series in the previous four years. It was a series where the willow generally held sway over the leather with the 39-year old Chris Gayle setting the world alight in what might well be his last series at home for the Windies, having made his debut in the last century.
