Third England-West Indies ODI cancelled

12:57 pm on 23 June 2012

The third one-day cricket match between England and the West Indies at Headingley was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain.

England won the series 2-0 after victories by 114 runs, under the Duckworth/Lewis method, at Southampton last weekend and Wednesday's eight-wicket success at The Oval.

England's Ian Bell was named man of the series thanks to scores of 126 and 53 after his recall to the one-day side as an opener following the limited overs international retirement of Kevin Pietersen.

West Indies, who lost the preceding Test series 2-0, conclude their tour with a stand-alone Twenty20 international against England at Trent Bridge on Monday.
