Bairstow wants to push on after ton inspires England

Bairstow wants to push on after ton inspires England

"It seems a long time ago that I made my debut in one-day cricket and there's been ups and downs", Bairstow said. "You have to try and stay composed, not let it affect anyone else, make sure your body language is good".

But Bairstow, whose previous highest ODI score was a match-winning 83 not out against New Zealand in Durham two years ago, went to his century with a hard-run three off Nurse despite slipping.

On Saturday ... The "Real" West Indies walked into the dressing room in England, then in very bad cricket conditions played a one off T20 worldwide against England, and demonstrated why they are still the best T20 team in the World.

"I thought he was absolutely outstanding today and obviously it's a great way for him to start the series", Morgan said about Bairstow. "Normally a performance like that is a reaction, so it's encouraging to start the series like this". I think he banged a six shortly after that, so that hurt a lot but it's part of the game. When I slipped coming back for the third, I thought 'Oh no, not again!' But luckily enough, it was slippy enough on the boundary for him to slip too.

The Windies will consider changes to their line-up, with all of their top seven scoring in double figures but none bettering the 41 scored by captain Jason Holder down the order.

"They're a strong outfit, (and) obviously have some additions, changes from the Test team - so they're not a side we take lightly", said Morgan.

'He grabbed his chance and I thought there was a calmness and an authority at the top of the innings.

"If you're not getting boundaries you need to rotate the strike.it's been an area of concern for us for a while now. Then pressure built ... so we fell probably 40 or 60 runs short".

"We had a chat before the series and said do I feel I like I can play", Root said.

Chris Gayle, who was playing in his first ODI since the 2015 World Cup, and Evin Lewis got to tourists off to a brisk start, but after amassing 45 runs, Moeen Ali removed Lewis for 11.

Rovman Powell looked threatening for a brief little period but England kept chipping away with the wickets to deny them the much-needed momentum.

The 27-year-old, who put on 125 with Yorkshire colleague Joe Root (54) for the second wicket as England chased down Windies' 204-9 to win their first ODI since defeat to Pakistan in the Champions Trophy semi-finals in June, says he was delighted to contribute.
