Jonny Bairstow hit 141 as England Lopsided win over the visitor.

England wicketkeeper batsmen Jonny Bairstow smack 141 not out as the hosts sealed the win with 12 overs to standby to complete a 4-0 series victory. The tourists West Indies, seeking to end a long sequence of defeats against England when they posted a huge total of 288 for six regardless of becoming slow down after a breathtaking Chris Gayle cameo role, but it never looked enough under the floodlights in the day-night encounter. Bairstow brought up his 50’s as the England openers kept the scoreboard constantly ticking over, untroubled by either pace or spin until Roy (96 in 70 balls) was trapped lbw by Miguel Cummins. But his dismissal did little to upset England's rhythm. Joe Root batted smoothly while Bairstow steered a ball down to third man for a single to notch his second century of the series which comes off 90 balls with 10 fours. Sunil Ambris (38 off 27 balls) and Ashley Nurse, with an impressive 31 off just 12 balls, gave much-needed impetus at the end of the innings as the West Indies went from 174-3 at the end of the 38th over to 288-6 at the end of the 50th over. England said the all-rounder would not be considered for selection by England "until further notice" following the emergence of a video apparently showing him fighting outside the club in the southwestern city of Bristol. Test vice-captain Stokes was included in the Ashes squad announced Wednesday, despite reportedly injuring his hand in the incident that led to his arrest on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm.The 26-year-old England all-rounder was released without charge on Monday but remains under investigation.
