Batting first, Sam Billings and Joe Root played brilliant knocks of 87 and 55 respectively with former scoring at strike rate near 200 to give a target of 183 to Windies. Fabian Allen was the only positive for hosts taking two crucial scalps.
Chasing the target, Windies batting line-up collapsed miserably and could only score 45 runs.
