The stylish right-hander made 108 not out – his seventh ODI century – as the visitors claimed their third win of the three-match series by five wickets. Earlier in the series they won by seven wickets and the second by 47 runs at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. Afghanistan batted first and made 249-7 off their 50 overs. West Indies replied with 253-5 off 48.4 overs to win with eight balls to spare.

Hope was key to the pursuit of victory, and alongside debutant Brandon King (39) they added 64 for the third wicket.

Hope reached his half-century from 76 balls, continuing his fine form in the series – as he followed scores of 77 not out and 43. Kieron Pollard joined Hope and the run-chase sparked into life when the final three balls of the 35th over were hit for 4, 6 and 6 by the captain – which left 85 required 85 runs from 15 overs with six wickets in hand. Hope continued to accumulate and reached his century in the 45th over. Alongside Roston Chase (42 not out) he added 71 for the sixth wicket to secure a comfortable victory.
