England vs West Indies | Twitter Hails 'Classy' Root as '9-Men' England Thrash Windies

Joe Root notched up his second ton in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as he hit a brilliant ton to seal England’s eight-wicket win over West Indies at The Rose Bowl, Southampton on Friday (June 14).

Earlier, West Indies were bowled out for 212 after Jofra Archer and Mark Wood rushed them for pace. Nicholas Pooran was the only batsman to cross the 40-run mark as he top scored with 63.

In the chase, Root and Jonny Bairstow set up the game with a 95-run stand to lay the platform for the win. Chris Woakes batted at three but could only score 40 but Root saw his side home.
