England take one day series

11:20 am on 20 June 2012

Captain Alastair Cook scored 112 as England cruised to an eight-wicket victory over the West Indies in the second one day cricket international at The Oval to clinch the series with a match to spare.

Cook shared an opening stand of 122 with Ian Bell (53) and 81 with Jonathan Trott as the hosts chased down the tourists' below-par 238 for nine in 45 overs.

Put in to bat, the Windies failed to build on Chris Gayle's explosive 53.

Dwayne Bravo top-scored with 77 off 82 balls but the innings fizzled out with only 19 runs in the last five overs.

The series concludes at Headingley on Friday.
