Chris Gayle scored 100 in 100 balls.
Jason Roy scored 100 in 65 balls.

That is some phenomenal innings by Roy.

It was but when you consider that it took Gayle 79 balls to get to his 50 then both innings are quite remarkable in their quality and dominance.

They are VFL, the difference is that England had a whole bunch of players who could support Roy.

A great start to the one day series.

True but you need to balance it with the runs Gayle conceded due to his inept fielding.

Edit: It’s also true that Roy dropped Gayle early on too.

And the two’s he ignored.

He couldn’t run so the singles and twos that he missed isn’t surprising. I think his influence in the West Indies is such that no-one dare argue with him and in a strange way I suspect that their one day side will be better off without him.

Clearly they need to replace his runs but they seem to be making progress.

Cracking game to start the series.  Great to watch and to win with over an over in hand is the sign of a good win.  Pleased for Roy.  Be great to see him come in to the test squad.

The feeling that it was never in doubt is the big difference.

Power hitters up top and an ability to constantly nurdle singles and twos with Root. It's very well balanced.

We have bowlers that can take wickets at any point of an innings too. If we don't win this world cup, we never will.

Christopher Henry again going big for fans in the ground. The man is pure entertainment.

Well done Rashid. Great ball. He’s been good since he came on. Slowed them right down and got Gayle as reward.

India can fuck off. Not only should they be forced to play Pakistan at the World Cup, they should be forced to play them in test cricket, or be kicked out.

England played Ireland at rugby within weeks of the Pub Bombings. Because they recognised that it was nothing to with sport, and neither is this.

Watching the Windies England game, this Hetmyer looks a prospect. Hopefully he actually carries on playing international cricket and isn't lost to the money game.

The entire ground including England fans (70% of crowd) wished Hetmyer on to get his 100 and celebrated when he did.

And yes India can fuck off. If they don’t want to play that game they can stay where they are. ICC need to grow a pair.

Well Stokes arrogance sure cost us that match. We were ideally placed needing something like 61 off 60 and he reviews a caught behind which was clearly out. Curran comes in and is LBW to a ball that was going down the leg but could not review. After that, once Buttler was out it was game over.

Stokes is like Broad with reviews, in his own mind he’s never out or in Broad’s case the batsman was definitely out. It’s a waste and impacts on the team as a whole.

I do like Hetmyer though.

Why was Chris Woakes omitted? He did ok in the first game which England won. Surely a better option than Curran?  Unless he's injured?
