England register a spectacular run chase riding on Bairstow's 141 — Twitter Reactions

England register a spectacular run chase riding on Bairstow's 141 — Twitter Reactions”

Chris Gayle (40) provided some early fireworks after his side had been put in to bat - the opener swiftly making up for a cautious start by clubbing a remarkable 34 runs from six Jake Ball deliveries.

Coming fresh of an ODI century, wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow believes that England's batting line-up has the strength to compete in the Ashes series against Australia despite the probable absence of star all-rounder Ben Stokes.

Rashid got into the wickets himself when he had West Indies' stand-in skipper Mohammed miscuing a slog to Joe Root at long-off as West Indies lost their way in the middle-overs.

The day started poorly for England. By the time he ran past one from Moeen that slid on, it was hard to gauge whether it was England or West Indies supporters who were happier. Samuels eventually broke the deadlock, pulling Plunkett for four but he was dismissed in the next over for 32 off 60 balls, stumped by Jos Buttler after dancing down the pitch to Ali.

This came during a period of the game where the tourists went 134 balls - that's 22.2 overs - without scoring a boundary.

Desperately needing to step up the scoring rate to post a competitive score, Shai Hope clubbed three successive fours off Curran, bringing up his 50 in the process.

Hope then departed for 72 when he skied Ball to Sam Billings in the deep, West Indies now 221 for five.

Plunkett (2-54) returned to bowl Rovman Powell (11) and while some powerful late hitting from debutant Sunil Ambris (38no off 27 balls) and Ashley Nurse (31no off 12 balls) gave the Windies a glimmer of hope, they still looked some way short of a score to challenge England.

In reply, England never looked like faltering with Bairstow going to the highest score against the West Indies in an ODI.

Eoin Morgan's side rounded off a successful summer with a nine-wicket victory over the Windies in Southampton to take the five-match series 4-0 but Atherton insists that not winning the Champions Trophy remains a disappointment.

And regardless of Hales' off-field problems, Roy may remain in the team for some while on the back of another performance that underlined just why England value him so highly when he is in form.

And, at one stage West Indies went more than 20 overs (from the final ball of the ninth over to the fifth ball of the 31st) without hitting a boundary.

But it was an innings that helped England, now 156 for one in the 22nd over, to get off to a flier.

The England Test captain was as busy as ever but with Roy gone, Bairstow took charge and reached his century from 90 balls before kicking on again.

That very bad run saw Roy replaced by Jonny Bairstow in the first three matches and it was only Alex Hales suspension that earned him a recall into the playing eleven for the fourth ODI. By then, with just 52 more needed, England's victory was a formality.
