The West Indies went into that match leading two/one following victories in St. Lucia over the weekend. From the first match in Guyana, which England won, three matches were washed out.
The visitors, spurred by Marcus Trescothick’s 82, off 57 balls, romped to a five-wicket win with 16 balls to spare in the final and seventh encounter at the Kensignton Oval in Barbados.
England cruised to 264 for 5 in reply to 261 for 6 which the homesters compiled in their allotted 50 overs.
Ramnaresh Sarwan with an unbeaten 104 was the mainstay of the West Indies batting.
The West Indies play two matches against the Bangladeshis at the Arnos Vale Playing Field, May 15 and 16, following a Warm-up match May 12.

The West Indies will be in England for a triangular tournament starting June. Following matches in Ireland June 16, they play New Zealand June 26 and England the following day. The drama continues against England July 1. They play New Zealand July 3, England July 6, and New Zealand again July 8.
