GROS ISLET (AFP) - England beat West Indies by 26 runs to win the fifth and final one-day international here on Friday and clinch the series 3-2. Andrew Flintoff grabbed a hat-trick as West Indies, chasing 173 to win, were bowled out for 146 with an over to spare in a game reduced to 29 overs a side after rain had delayed the start at the Beausejour stadium. It was England's first limited overs series win in the Caribbean. "It's been a long, hard tour and it's very special to come out of it with a win. We've worked very hard," said England captain Andrew Strauss whose side lost the Test series. West Indies skipper Chris Gayle said: "It's unfortunate we lost but I have to have give England credit. It was a good wicket to bat on but they bowled well."
