    SmashingStrokesPro

    Everything has been clinical from England on a rare sunny day and everything has been listless from West Indies. The Caribbeans suddenly had dosed off after starting well.

    FOUR! Stokes finishes the game off with a boundary! Takes full toll of the Free Hit. Holder bowls it very full on leg stump. Stokes whips it past mid on and the ball races away. He walks up to Root and hugs him. All smiles in the England camp as THEY WIN BY 8 WICKETS with 101 balls to spare!

    Ben Stokes is giving the finishing touches now and England has won the match match by eight wickets

  • 33.1JHolder to BenStokes

    1
    NO BALL AND FOUR! Now it should be the last over of the game. Just the 4 needed now and Stokes has a Free Hit on the next ball to finish the game. Shortish and outside off, Stokes does not hit it right off the middle but gets it past mid off. The fielder does give it a chase but fails to stop the ball. Holder also has overstepped.

    Fantastic century by Joe Root with 11 hits to the fence. The class ton has come off 93 balls and nothing can be more splendid than this.  He is indeed in sublime form and certainly my MAN OF THE MATCH

    100 for Joe Root. His second century in this World Cup! He becomes only the second Englishman to get 2 centuries in the same World Cup after Kevin Pietersen in 2007. This has been a gem of a knock from the Yorkshire man. He gets to 16th ODI hundred with a pull towards fine leg for a single. Joe has played that shot with so much comfort today. He was asked to open the innings due to an injury to Roy and he stepped up to deliver. Has oozed class throughout this innings.

    OUT! Not that this wicket changes the result of the game but West Indies will take it. Saves them some blushes. Short ball on off, Woakes looks to pull but does not time it well. It flies towards deep square leg. For a moment it looks like it will fall short but substitute, Fabian Allen, comes in front and takes a very good catch by going down low. He does a fist pump looking at the crowd.
