Victory for England

Paceman Chris Lewis produced a burst of 3 for 11, including two wickets in two balls, to thrust England to a 61-run victory over West Indies in the first one-day international.


The shaven-headed Lewis fired out captain Richie Richardson and Phil Simmons with consecutive deliveries and also dispatched Keith Arthurton as West Indies crumbled to 141 all out in 40.4 overs at Kensington Oval on Wednesday.


England scored 202 for 5 in 50 overs after winning the toss, with Mike Atherton playing a captain's innings of 86 and sharing a fourth wicket stand of 93 in 20 overs with Graeme Hick, who hit a vigorous 47.
