ICC World Cup 2019: England beat West Indies by 8 wickets

A thumping win for England! They have hammered West Indies by 8 wickets and 101 balls to spare. Injuries to Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan didn’t bother them much as Joe Root stepped up to the plate and notched up his second century in this World Cup

England thrashed the West Indies by eight wickets as Joe Root’s century and lethal spells from pace bowlers Jofra Archer and Mark Wood inspired the hosts on Friday. Root smashed 100 not out from 94 balls as England easily reached 213-2 after Archer’s 3-30 and Mark Wood’s 3-18 helped dismiss the West Indies for 212 in Southampton. England have won three of their four group matches as they chase a place in the semi-finals, but injuries to Jason Roy and captain Eoin Morgan cast a shadow over their latest victory.
