ENG vs WIN: England also registered the record of the fourth-highest successful chase in the history of One Day Internationals in the first ODI and they would look forward to setting yet another milestone when they meet the hosts for the next ODI. For Windies, Chris Gayle and Shai Hope carried their team to a total of 360 as they posted a total of 360 runs. Gayle was recalled into the ODI side ahead of the World Cup and he made the comeback worthwhile.
After winning the first ODI against Windies, now England will be eyeing second win when they meet Windies in Barbados. England exhibited sheer class in the first ODI as they chased down 360 runs to hand over Windies a defeat by six wickets in the first ODI. Backing on a blistering century by ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle, Windies posted a mammoth total in front of the visitors but Jason Roy scored 123 runs off 85 balls to help the team chase down the total with ease.
