The West Indies crushed England with a 135-run victory in the third one-day cricket international at the Kensington Oval, taking an unbeatable 2-1 lead in the four-match limited-over series.

The home team, sent in by England, raced to seven for 249 off 46 overs thanks to a thrilling third wicket partnership of 117 in only 17 overs between skipper Viv Richards and his Antiguan protege Richie Richardson. Both hit 62.

England, needing to score at 5.43 runs an over, lost wickets steadily and was dismissed for 114 in 39 overs.

The match was a disappointment for a crowd of more than 12,000 which was expecting a more serious challenge following the tourists' last-ball win in the second limited overs international in Trinidad two weeks ago.

Richards, who took the catch which ended the England innings, was named man of the match.

The West Indies started slowly and only six runs were on the board after three overs as lan Botham and Greg Thomas created a few anxious moments for openers Gordon Greenidge (31) and Desmond Haynes (28) on a pitch that gave some early assistance to the bowlers.

The experienced Barbados pair added 61 for the first wicket and England lost a chance of a vital breakthrough when Richards was dropped at three by lan Botham in the slips off Foster's bowling.

The miss soon proved costly as Richards started to open up, in partnership with Richardson, and the England bowlers were hit all over the ground.

Richards, who faced 56 balls, was particularly severe on off-spinner John Emburey, hitting him for 20 in the 35th over before he was well caught at long-off by Foster attempting a third six off the last ball.

Richardson was fourth out, five overs later, bowled by Botham as he attempted a vicious pull.

After losing Graham Gooch for six to a catch at the wicket off Joel Garner in the fifth over, England was always under pressure.

Opener Tim Robinson, who topscored with 23, was second out to a catch low down at gully off Marshall with the score on 42. Skipper David Gower failed to score, trapped leg before wicket by Marshall as England plunged to 46 for four in the 16th over.

Wickets continued to tumble and it was just a matter of time before Richards caught Thomas off Patrick Patterson to end the innings. Marshall was the top West Indies wicket-taker with three for 14 off six overs.

For England, Foster had the best figures of three for 39 but Botham looked the most impressive in taking two for 39, also off nine overs.

The last one-day international will be played in Trinidad on March 31.
