JASON ROY produced something so spectacular that he upstaged even Chris Gayle. The Surrey slugger plundered 123 from just 85 balls, while opener Joe Root amassed 102, as England recorded their highest successful chase in one-day international history. Joe Root and Jason Roy share their joy as both hit centuries in a brilliant run-chase win for England after the Windies made a daunting 360-8 They swept past the Windies’ 360-8 with eight balls to spare – making it the third best pursuit by any country. It was an historic occasion all round at Kensington Oval because West Indies’ total of 23 sixes was a world record in ODI matches. Roy’s thrilling assault made Gayle’s theatrical, highly-entertaining innings of 135 from 129 deliveries appear almost pedestrian. And Roy more than compensated for dropping Gayle on nine from a skied chance in the covers that he should have held. Jason Holder shows his despair as as Jason Roy and Joe Root steer England towards victory Joe Root and Jason Roy dictated a superb victory for England With Joe Root making his 14th one-day hundred, England always looked like overhauling their big target with ease. Roy and Root scored centuries in England’s only warm-up match on Sunday so the two JRs are entering a five-month block of white ball cricket in prime form. Roy enjoyed several slices of fortune – he was dropped four times – but the power of his striking was not in doubt. The more runs he scores in one-day cricket, the more England’s selectors must be tempted to throw him into this summer’s Ashes skirmish as an aggressive opener. Windies opener Chris Gayle was finally bowled by Ben Stokes after hitting 135 off 129 balls, including TWELVE sixes Root’s century was his third in consecutive matches after he also made one in England’s consolation Test victory in St.Lucia. Root benefitted from three dropped catches as the Windies’ fielding and bowling was very poor. They spilled a total of seven chances of varying difficulty and bowled with little menace or purpose. But, while England’s batting was destructively impressive, their quick bowling is showing a few signs of decay. Chris Woakes is troubled by a knee twinge, Liam Plunkett has looked short of pace for several months and Mark Wood is straining to prove his 95 mph third Test blitz was not a fluke. Chris Gayle hit three fours and 12 sixes as he dominated the West Indies’ 360-8 Gayle hit no fewer than 12 sixes and accounted for five of the seven lost balls while England bowled. But he didn’t strike the biggest six – that was a monster by Shai Hope off Moeen Ali that cleared the roof of the four-decker media stand. The most remarkable maximum came from No.10 Divendra Bishoo, who reverse-swept Adil Rashid over the point boundary. Gayle’s devastating dozen took his total sixes in international cricket to 488 and past the previous record of 476 held by Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi. Ben Stokes was England’s most successful bowler, with 3-37, and here celebrates having Shai Hope caught by Adil Rashid The big Jamaican celebrated three figures by dropping to his haunches in the direction of the dressing-room and then placing his helmet on his bat handle and raising it above his head like a trophy. The self-styled Universe Boss, whose bedroom at home features a dancing pole and mirrored ceiling, was having the time of his life. But he scored just 21 runs from his first 50 balls and ultimately that probably cost the Windies. Gayle said: “It’s one of my best innings, you check my career and I haven’t started like that. Like in life, it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. “I wanted to raise the Windies flag high, since it’s my last home series. Keep the flag high and make sure everyone gets a chance to see that.” [article-rail-section title=”most read in cricket” posts_category=”22″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /]
