Morgan hits 10th ODI ton as England make 296

England have sealed a 45-run win over West Indies in the first one-day global in Antigua courtesy of an Eoin Morgan century.

However, Root, in just his second global since being handed the England Test captaincy last month, and Chris Woakes, who scored an unbeaten 68, put on a brilliant unbroken 102-run stand to get their team over the line with 10 balls to spare.

The 30-year-old right-hander was the stand-out performer at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium here with a maiden ODI half-century as West Indies went down by 45 runs in the encounter on Friday after being asked to chase 297 for victory.

England Scored a Strong 296 Runs for 6 Wickets.

Woakes survived being dropped twice to score 68 as both teams used the brief series to prepare for June's Champions Trophy.

West Indies captain Jason Holder chose to bat first but his batsmen struggled to get to grips with the conditions, though Jason Mohammed did manage to hit a half century on the slow wicket. However, with 2019 World Cup automatic qualification slipping from their grasps, the West Indies will to do better than compete and go on to win matches. Woakes got the first wicket of the innings when he removed Evin Lewis for 21 before Plunkett removed Kieran Powell for one.

Both teams are coming off series losses, the West Indies failing to advance to the final of a three-nation tournament in Zimbabwe last November that also involved Sri Lanka, and England falling to India in January after being thrashed in the preceding Test series at the end of 2016.

Earlier, after winning the toss and batting first, the West Indies were bowled out for 225 inside 47.5 overs, with Steven Finn taking 2-38 to become the third-quickest England bowler to 100 ODI wickets, while Liam Plunkett also impressed with 3-32.

Despite those wickets, it was an inconsistent display from Finn who conceded five boundaries in his first five overs in stark contrast to Woakes whose eight overs cost just 26 runs.

England's chase got off to a tricky start as Sam Billings was dismissed for a golden duck to just the second ball of the innings, the makeshift opener caught at second slip off Gabriel.

When Roy holed out to Ashley Nurse it triggered an England middle order collapse. Chris Woakes, though held his own and he started smashing the ball around with Root holding guard at the other end. The only prominent partnership was between Kraigg Brathwaite and Jason Mohammed, who put on 72 runs for the seventh wicket.

It was the first three wickets for off-spinner Ashley Nurse, the leading bowler in domestic Caribbean cricket this year, who then trapped Morgan lbw for seven and bowled Moeen Ali neck and crop for three.
