Preview: England white-ball captain Eoin Morgan has urged Ben Stokes to retain his competitive approach despite the prospect of facing longstanding antagonist Marlon Samuels in the first one-day international against West Indies.

Tuesday's match will also be England's first ODI since a crushing eight-wicket Champions Trophy semi-final defeat by eventual tournament winners Pakistan in Cardiff in June.

West Indies require a 5-0 series win -- or 4-0 with a tie or no-result -- over Morgan's men if they are to gain direct entry to the 2019 World Cup in England.

Otherwise the 1975 and 1979 champions face the indignity of a qualifying competition.

But West Indies did enjoy a 21-run Twenty20 victory over England in Durham on Saturday.

Commentary (England innings)

That's all we have from this one-sided affair. Let's hope for a better contest in the second ODI on 21st September at 1230 local (1130 GMT). Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!

Man of the Match, Jonny Bairstow says it wasn't a great time to slip but was delighted to come back for the third run for his ton. Admits that it seems a long time ago since he made his ODI debut so he wants to make the most of the opportunity given to him. Ends by saying the internal competition in the team helps everyone to become better and do more.

Eoin Morgan says he thought they came back well. Continues saying West Indies started off well but his team adapted to the conditions quickly. Adds their bowling was great according to him which kept the target to a decent amount. On the dropped chance, mentions Root doesn't drop many so it's important to keep creating chances. Praises Rashid as he kept bowling well, as did the bowling unit in general which was very encouraging to see. When asked about Bairstow, states that after a performance like this, it's very difficult to leave him out.

Jason Holder reckons they were 40 runs short. Admits they didn't bowl well and conceded too many boundaries. Realizes that his side needs to rotate strike if the boundaries are not coming, that it's an area of concern. Acknowledges the contrast from T20 cricket. Adds they lost wickets at crucial moments and let themselves down by being too inconsistent. When asked about missing out on automatic World Cup qualification, says there's work to be done obviously, but the focus is on this series with Trent Bridge coming up first.

West Indies were of no match. Apart from Chris Gayle's onslaught at the beginning, they never were in the game. Their bowlers were anything but impressive and it turned out to be a no contest. Courtesy this loss, the visitors now will have to play the World Cup qualifiers next year. Their tussle with Sri Lanka ends here and the Islanders will be thankful to England.

Comfortable win for England. They were after a mediocre target and achieved it with minimum fuss. Jonny Bairstow and Alex Hales gave a quick start before the century stand for the second wicket almost sealed the deal. Bairstow grabbed the opportunity to open the innings with both hands and scored an unbeaten century to see his side through.
