West Indies coach John Dyson admitted he was to blame for the embarrassing mathematical error which handed England a one-run win in the opening one-day international on Friday.The Australian called in his players, who had been offered the light, believing his team were ahead on the calculations under the Duckworth-Lewis method.
But when Stuart Broad trapped Denesh Ramdin lbw to leave West Indies on 244 for seven from 46.2 overs, England had actually nipped ahead on the D/L chart.
"I thought we were ahead when we were behind by one," Dyson told Sky Sports.
"It's my responsibility, I accept it. I have apologised to the team, it's all I can do. It was a bad mistake. It's extremely disappointing."
