The West Indies completed a 3-0 sweep of their T20I series with South Africa after an eight wicket crushing of the Proteas at Sabina Park on Sunday. Set 164 to win, the Caribbean side raced to the target with 6.1 overs to spare and for the loss of just two wickets. Openers Brandon King and Johnson Charles put on 92 in 6.4 overs with Charles in particular punishing the tourists as he battered 69 off just 26 balls. Charles hit 14 of those 26 balls for boundaries including five sixes.

Kyle Mayers came in and kept up the momentum and when stand-in skipper King departed for 44 (28 balls), West Indies were 130-2 with 9.1 overs remaining. Mayers ended on 36 not out as the West Indies ensured they head into the T20 World Cup, which they will co-host with the United States, in confident mood. “Happy with my own performance. I would’ve liked to carry my bat through the end though. It was an important 3-0 win, last series before the World Cup, so important preparation and good momentum going into the World Cup,” King said.
