• Windies misses chance for series win

South Africa’s Charl Langeveldt took a dramatic hat-trick in the last over in Barbados to clinch a one-day series victory over West Indies.

With four needed off the last six balls, Langeveldt bowled Ian Bradshaw and Daren Powell, and then had Corey Collymore lbw to spark celebrations. {{more}}

Langeveldt was named Man -of – the Match.

Chris Gayle (132) replied to Boeta Dippenaar’s 123 with a century of his own as West Indies chased 285 to win.

But he was the first of five to fall in five overs as the hosts imploded.

The dramatic finish was a fitting finale for Kensington Oval, which is to undergo a major overhaul ahead of the 2007 World Cup.

The West Indies will try to salvage some pride when both teams meet at the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad and Tobago’s back to back encounters this weekend.
