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?

He was rested. From what Morgan said at the toss they’re wrapping him in cotton wool. In other words he’s an important player but too injury prone.

That was a poor slump, and a warning for the World Cup.

It’s looking good for some cricket today and the Royal Grenadian Police Force are doing a grand job.

70/0 after 9

50 up for Bairstow, in no small part thanks to 3 consecutive 6s off Bishoo.

England onto 300/3 off 42

Hales got 82
Root went cheaply
Morgan 93* (80)
Buttler 59* (47)

Morgan has just smashed a Holder over for 21.

This is brutal stuff, I think we might set yet another run-fest record.

It's actually getting pretty uncomfortable to watch, the West Indian attack are utterly shell-shocked right now.

I think that they’ve bowled poorly throughout the innings.

Morgan 93* (80)
Buttler 59* (47)

To give context to the spell from Buttler here he's now:

98* (57)

39 runs from 10 deliveries!

Buttler gone for 150 (from 77), probably the best ODI innings ever, absolutely spectacular.

A marvellous innings but not the best ever. Viv Richards scored 189 off 170 balls v England at Old Trafford in 1984. The Windies were 98-6 and 166-9, he added 106 for the 10th wicket with Michael Holding. They scored 272-9.

Given how one day cricket was played back then I think his innings is easily the best.

Ok, but it's certainly in the discussion, 54 runs from 11 balls in the middle was spectacular though.
