Windies lose ODI series

A century from Marlon Samuels was not enough to save West Indies from defeat in the third and final One Day International against Sri Lanka, as the hosts went on to win the overall series.

Sri Lanka beat West Indies by 19 runs at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, in a match that was reduced to 36 overs per side because of rain.

Samuels made 110 not out, which included 15 fours and a six under light, to win the man of the match award.

They reached 180-5 off 32.3 overs and were declared winners by 19 runs when another rain interruption brought the match to an end.

    You tend to expect these results from WI these days. Every other Cricket playing country seem to be improving except us. We did not have the right squad in the first place. The selectors have cut off their noses to spite their faces.Every other country pick their best players, we do not. Dwayne Bravo and Pollard should have been playig in the 50 over games.Fletcher and Charles are not up to international standard. Bring back Dwayne Smith, he would have done a better job as opener.
