In the mood. 120 off 114. Still 9 overs to go. About 6 balls out of the ground so far.

Helluva response by England (so far...)

Now needing just a run a ball with 8 wickets standing.

And job done.

The bowling looks unexciting but this England side are something else with the bat; 364 runs knocked off and they didn't look like they broke sweat. In hindsight the opening bowling spell when Gayle survived but scored slowly looks much better than it seemed at the time.

Cracking win by England I only wish I could have watched it.

Comment about Chris Gayle's innings from the BBC sports page which is interesting.

Can you call a knock of 135 off 129 balls costly?
It seems strange but Chris Gayle's approach - peppering runs of dot balls with towering sixes - was shown up by England as somewhat outmoded.
Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan had much higher strike rates. And Joe Root scored his ton off fewer balls.

ECB completely dropped the ball after the 2005 Ashes. And arguably have been continuing to drop it ever since...

You had free to air Channel 4 coverage, unprecedented national interest, a successful team. I know, let's stick it behind a paywall.

Anyway, fantastic win, stick that in yer pipe and smoke it Christopher.

Roy should open for the test side - be far more entertaining than Jennings scraping to 9 off of 146 balls.

Poll: Remy - can he play in the playoffs - who's opening post is the best?

As a Surrey fan, I am also a big fan of Jason Roy. but he bats at 5 for Surrey, and I don't recall him ever opening for Surrey - Burns and Stoneman do it currently, so I'm not sure he is a test opener.

Look at his stats - he defended only 2% of the balls yesterday. Yes it would be entertaining, but in a test inning, the openers job is to wear down the opening attack and the ball a bit. So 20 odd off 20 balls is in many ways less good than 9 off 146 because it sets up the attacking middle order to do their stuff

Why stop now, just when I'm hating it

Wasn't just the ECB that dropped the ball, also that fat flump Ashley Nurse. A worse fielder than my Nan and she's been dead since 1975. Thanks for the win Mr. Nurse.

I appreciated Nurse's approach to Adil Rashid. While everyone else, even Gayle, was respectfully watching his variations, Nurse tried to hit him in the sea.
Gayle has the attitude that if I'm still around in the 40th over, we'll win. It used to work every time. England tried that with Ian Bell. Roy's approach is if I get out hitting, there's another five or six coming just like me.
The bowlers have been criticised for lack of variety, but that was a cruel pitch. Well done to Stokes and Woakes for varying the pace and line.

Yes, coming in at number nine his cameo 25 from 8 balls was excellent but he's been selected as a bowler and 0-69 from ten overs wasn't impressive. Even less impressive was Holder's field placements, putting Nurse deep was a disaster for the Windies. Apart from dropping a number of catches he must have given away half a dozen boundaries and (although England always looked in command) that was eventually the difference between the two sides.

Thought it was a real good game to be fair. We bowled and fielded very well apart from the drop catch of Gayle. We have a very strong batting line up and when it goes right it is fantastic to watch. Thought Roy did very well and deserved his bit of luck whist Root and Morgan were brilliant especially Root. The Windies unfortunately mostly revert to type when put under pressure as showed in the final test match and yesterday. Their bowling and fielding were frankly awful but lets not take anything away from England we played very, very well and chasing that amount of runs is not in any way shape or form easy.

I watched most of it and I thought we were going to lose until Gayle and Holder threw it away towards the end.
Fantastic game.

Amazing how they bat nowadays when 135 off 129 balls is considered not good enough, bloody hell.

I wouldn't much fancy bowling at Chris Gayle.

Fielding to Chris Gayle might be even worse. Imagine having to catch one of those.

Fielding to Gayle or Buttler is dead easy! You just watch the ball sailing over your head into the crowd!
