Done and dusted with this high-scoring encounter. It turned out to be a one-sided affair as England's batting quality proved to be too hot to handle for the home team. The second ODI once again will be here in Barbados. Do join us on 22nd February at 1100 local (1500 GMT) for all the action. Cheers!
England's skipper, Eoin Morgan says he is very pleased with the calmness they showed during the chase. On the surface, he reckons it was brilliant. Credits the way Jason Roy and Joe Root played. Feels the two complement each other and if they get away, the oppositions are in for a rough time. Mentions Adil Rashid played a huge part in pegging the Windies back. Admits they did not have a great day in the field and he hopes they can improve. Ends by saying all the three departments are strong but they need to keep improving.
Man of the Match, Jason Roy says that the surface was good. Mentions the total was a daunting one but they got off to a good start and they just capitalized. Further adds that he wanted to step up with the bat especially after dropping Gayle on 9 and he feels he did so. Reckons that he rotated the strike well with Root and did not let the pressure build. Ends by saying they have to continue working hard and be hungry for more success.
Windies' skipper, Jason Holder credits his batters for the way they batted. He feels they did not bowl that well in this game. Appreciates the way Chris Gayle played and says it is really good to see the way he played. Mentions the energy and the body language was not up to the mark today. Ends by saying they need to be more clinical moving ahead.
The bowling from Windies was below standard. To add to that, their fielding was also not up to the mark. That never allowed the home team to build any momentum and in spite of posting a big total, they got beaten quite comprehensively. Earlier in the afternoon, the Gayle-storm struck Barbados as it was total carnage. The Jamaican giant hammered a superlative hundred and steered Windies to 360, however, lack of disciplined bowling and fielding, cost them the match.
A commanding performance by England. They were after a big target but overhauled it with a minimum of fuss. Their openers laid a strong platform by providing a blazing start. Jason Roy showed scintillating form and scored a fluent century. Not even once in the run chase England looked under pressure. Joe Root anchored quite efficiently with a ton and he along with Eoin Morgan powered the touring team on the brink of victory which later on was achieved with 8 balls to spare. This is also their highest successful run chase in ODIs and the third highest overall.

Jason Holder To Joe Root OUT!
OUT! It's a legal ball. Root does not hit the winning runs. He departs immediately after getting his ton. A high full toss on middle, Root pulls it but finds Pooran at deep square leg who takes a comfortable catch. Root, however, asks Stokes to complete the run as he feels it is above the waist. The umpire goes upstairs and the third umpire rules it in the favour of the bowler.
Have the Windies got the English Test skipper? They have gone upstairs to check for the waist high full toss.
Holder pulls out at the very end.

In the air... dropped! Another reprieve for the English Test skipper. This too should have been taken. Once again it is Nurse who is the culprit. Short and outside off, Root plays the upper cut. It goes uppishly towards third man. Nurse runs in, dives, gets two hands to it but fails to hang on. This could probably cost them the game. The batsmen take one.
Drinks! England doing it easily at the moment. They just need to continue the way they are going. Windies, on the other hand, need a couple of wickets quickly.

Devendra Bishoo To Jason Roy OUT!
OUT! In the air... taken! Roy's excellent knock comes to an end. He, just like Gayle, walks to a standing ovation. A timely wicket for the Windies as the two were taking the game away from the hosts. This is tossed up outside off, Roy slashes but only gets an outside edge. It goes towards short third man, Bravo there goes down low and takes a decent catch. Can Windies get another quickly? They need it as England are ahead at the moment. They need another 156 in 138 balls with 8 wickets in hand.

NOT OUT! Roy once again has his back leg inside the crease. He goes for the sweep but misses. The keeper whips the bails off and appeals. The umpire takes it upstairs and the replays show that Roy is safe.

The keeper collects the ball and whips the bails off. An appeal follows. Replays roll in and after looking at two angles, the third umpire rules it in the favor the batsman.

SIX! 100 for Jason Roy. He scored one in the practice game and now in the first ODI. What an innings this has been! England needed someone to step up in this big run chase and he surely has responded. It has taken him just 65 balls to get there, second fastest for England vs the Windies. 7th in ODIs and he gets there in some style. Jason gets it right in his zone, full and on middle, Roy lofts it over the bowler's head for a biggie. Takes his helmet off and raises his bat. Needs to continue. Still a long way to go.

Drinks! It's been a cracking beginning from England and they are well on track in this chase. Jason Roy has looked in exemplary form and in spite of losing Jonny Bairstow, the Englishmen are not in any kind of pressure currently. Windies need wickets and that too in clumps to stop the number one team's charge.
