The match saw as many as 28 sixes being hit, the most in an ODI in the United Kingdom. Morgan will be really happy with this win as it would have enabled him to tick most of the boxes.

West Indies' batting innings was all about Chris Gayle. Till the time he was at the crease, they were hopeful of running England close to the finish line. But Rashid's moment of brilliance on the field brought curtains to the whirlwind knock. Apart from the opener, only the two Jasons - Mohammed and Holder got some runs but it just wasn't enough.

!

England's second-biggest win over West Indies in limited over games - that's the magnitude of this win! Liam Plunkett can easily be termed as the star in this innings. A fifer in an ODI is rarity these days and he'll do well to savour this feat. England put up a clinical performance today. He was ably assisted by Adil Rashid, who picked up three wickets after coming in to bowl quite late in the innings.
