Paul Collingwood enjoyed himself with bat and ball as England cruised to a six-wicket win over the West Indies in the second ODI here on Sunday. Victory, achieved with 14 overs left, gave England an unbeatable 1-0 lead in the three-match series following Thursday's washout at Headingley.
Fast bowler Stuart Broad led the way with four wickets for 46 runs, including the first two and the last two, while Collingwood took three for 16. His haul included top scorer and fellow all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, out for 50 following his stint in the IPL. England lost opener Strauss cheaply before a stand of 76 between Owais Shah (38) and man-of-the-match Collingwood (47*) saw them to the brink of victory.
Ex-Ireland international Eoin Morgan was two not out on his England debut.
Earlier, Broad removed both opener Lendl Simmons and Ramnaresh Sarwan for ducks. Simmons was lbw on the backfoot and Sarwan caught behind off an uncertain push. AFP
