Mayers and Brooks score in clean sweep

AMSTELVEEN – Kyle Mayers and Shamarh Brooks carved out contrasting maiden One-Day International hundreds but West Indies were forced to withstand a bold counter-offensive from the Netherlands before pulling off a 20-run victory and a clean sweep of their three-match series here yesterday.

In his first time at the top of the order, the left-hander Mayers blasted a robust 120 off 106 deliveries, a knock that included eight fours and seven sixes and underpinned the Caribbean side’s 308 for five off their 40 overs.

Brooks, who dropped down to number three, produced a fancy unbeaten 101 off 115 deliveries, counting three fours and four sixes in an innings which proved the perfect foil for Mayers’ fireworks.

Together, they posted 184 for the second wicket, a stand that propelled West Indies to their first total in excess of 300 in their last 10 ODIs. (CMC)
