BRIDGETOWN (Barbados) (AFP) - England were upstaged by a 69 off 72 balls from Dwayne Bravo which propelled West Indies to 239 for nine from 50 overs in the rain-affected fourth day of their five One-day Internationals at Kensington Oval on Sunday. The tourists had recovered from another hammering from Chris Gayle and looked in control when West Indies slumped to 145 for six in the 35th over. But England were again put on the back-foot when Bravo boosted the West Indies total with an innings that included seven fours and two sixes. Andrew Flintoff, however, gave Bravo a reprieve on 32, when he failed to hold a sharp return chance in the 42nd over. England were to pay for this error, when Bravo smote James Anderson over mid-wicket for four to reach his 50 and then struck the next ball in the same direction for a six. England's bowlers were again savaged, when Gayle raced to 46 from 39 balls in an opening stand of 72 before Stuart Broad claimed him caught behind to make the breakthrough in the 13th over. England then reduced West Indies slipped to 83 for three in 16th over, and then Dimitri Mascarenhas claimed Denesh Ramdin for 26, Shivnarine Chanderpaul for 27, and Kieron Pollard for a duck to leave the innings in tatters. But England failed to put a cork on Bravo, and he enhanced West Indies' chances of victory which would give them an unbeatable 3-1 lead in the series. Mascarenhas was England's most successful bowler with three for 26 from 10 overs, and Stuart Broad took three for 62 from 10 overs. England dropped Gareth Batty and brought in Steve Harmison, while West Indies were unchanged. The tourists trail in the five-match series 2-1, after West Indies won the rain-affected third ODI by eight wickets under the Duckworth-Lewis Method. England fortuitously won the opening match at the Guyana National Stadium, when West Indies accepted bad light thinking they were ahead on the Duckworth-Lewis tables. But the home team recovered from the miscalculation from their coach John Dyson to win the second match last Sunday by 21 runs. International umpire Steve Bucknor of Jamaica is making his final appearance in this his 181st ODI. SCOREBOARD WEST INDIES: C. Gayle c wkpr Prior b Broad 46 L. Simmons run out (Mascarenhas) 29 R.
