Woakes at 3, that's bold.

He’s not a bad batsman and has a test match hundred. I think he needs time out in the middle.

Oh I agree, all I mean is that using this as a chance to him some time is a bold decision.

Shame Woakes couldn't hang on to the finish but that's a very good 40 for a number 8 coming in early.

This is an excellent display. Just got to hope Morgan and Roy are ok.

That was much easier than I anticipated.

When the Windies are good then they’re brilliant, when they’re bad then they’re truly awful. Their body language in the field was poor and they seemed to give up very quickly. Even Jason Holder looked flat. They looked like they didn’t want to be there.

I thought they looked up for it early in their own innings but the 2 Root wickets completely deflated them and they looked resigned to defeat after that. For me it was an exceptional bowling effort and then a simple, and highly professional batting performance, especially with 2 of the top 4 missing.

As I said, really good performance in what could have been a tough game. Those injuries just need to heal.

It was an important win today. Given that we still have to play India, Australia and New Zealand, a defeat today would have made qualifying quite interesting, particularly when you factor in the weather and no results.

I watch us a lot home and away and was worried today was going to be a real tough one especially having suffered one defeat already - but that was impressive - I accept the toss helped but had to say to my missus when Joe was going that we’re quite good at this game !
A little bit of a dilemma now with 2 “lesser” games coming up whether to rest Roy and Morgan but need to avoid cock ups.

I'd give them 1 game each I think and let Vince get a couple of matches.

I agree. Can’t see Dawson getting too much action at the moment and wouldn’t want Vince to be thrown into a knockout game with no cricket for a month. Overall I'm pretty confident though that we can win this thing!

Yeah, I'd have wanted Vince to get a couple of games regardless so it being an semi-enforced change doesn't really matter.

Nothing to do with the World Cup, but I read this fact today and quite liked it...

The New Zealand team Nelson played first-class cricket from 1874 to 1891. In both their first and last first-class innings they were dismissed for 111.

Today England exercised proper control  in a match. This is the best result so far.
