West Indies and England ODI series kicked-off in style with visitor register 6-wicket win over the powerful hosts. The hosts started off well with side posting 300+ score on board but their bowlers disappoint as they failed to defend the big total. For hosts, Chris Gayle was the high scorer. Gayle who returned to side since the home series against Bangladesh last July. The big-hitting left-hander signalled his intentions for a lengthy grand finale with an innings of 135 off 129 balls with 12 sixes and three fours.

England who earlier lost Test series showed why they are World Cup favourites. Jason Roy and Joe Root powered the side to chase down the big score with an over to spare.
