West Indies vs England

Four demerit points within a two-year period incurs a ban from one test or two one-dayers or two T20Is, whatever comes first for the player.

A dominant all-round performance from Joe Root delivered England a resounding victory over the West Indies at the Hampshire Bowl.

England's third victory in four matches lifted them to second in the 10-team standings while West Indies are sixth following their second loss.

England, with such a small target, opened with Root rather than Buttler in Roy's absence and he responded by doing what Joe Root does, making everything look easy and reaching his 16th one-day worldwide hundred and second of this World Cup.

But if Wood and Archer, again faster than anything West Indies paced-filled attack could muster, took three wickets each then England were grateful for Root's mixture of off-spin and leg-breaks just when West Indies were threatening a half decent total.

Root (100no off 94 balls) was elevated from his usual No 3 spot after Jason Roy tweaked his hamstring while fielding and went on to score his second hundred of the tournament, after his 107 in the defeat to Pakistan, as England reached their target of 213 with 101 deliveries to spare.

Morgan hobbled off the pitch in the 40th over, struggling to make his way up the pavilion steps and it was later confirmed he had suffered a back spasm.

Archer then accounted for Pooran - the left-hander given out on review with UltraEdge showing he snicked the ball while looking to leave - Cottrell and Carlos Brathwaite (14), before Wood cleaned up last man Shannon Gabriel (0), West Indies all out in 44 overs.

"Jason Roy has potentially tweaked his hamstring". Having never batted higher than seven in his previous 91 appearances, the all-rounder was handed an emergency elevation and chipped in with an assured 40. Gayle was on 15 when Wood dropped him in the outfield.

The rain continued all week, limited the time for practice, and the weather conditions certainly favored the home team after England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and sent West Indies to bat on cold, overcast conditions.

Two balls after his dismissal West Indies were in deep trouble at 55-3 when Shai Hope was trapped in front of the wicket by Wood.

Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer shared a fluent fourth-wicket partnership of 89, but Hetmyer was caught and bowled by Root for 39 and the part-time spinner soon dismissed Windies captain Jason Holder in identical fashion. But he was out for 36 from 41 balls setting the bilateral run record at 1,632 when he pulled Liam Plunkett into the deep and Jonny Bairstow took a running catch.
