Matthew Forde struck thrice on international debut and Keacy Carty hit a half-century as the West Indies registered a four-wicket win in the rain-affected third and final game at the Kensington Oval on Saturday to clinch their first ODI series victory over England (2-1) since 2007.

Chasing a revised target of 188 in 34 overs (DLS method), the Windies got off to a perfect start as Carty (50) combined with Alick Athanaze (45) for a 76-run second-wicket partnership, but spinner Will Jacks (3/22) tore through their middle order, reducing them to 135/6 in the 26th over.
