Russell, Gabriel injured as Windies crushed

Open­er Joe Root scored a fine un­beat­en cen­tu­ry to steer Eng­land to a crush­ing eight-wick­et vic­to­ry over the West In­dies in their ICC 2019 World Cup match at Southamp­ton, a re­sult which makes the Windies' road to the last four very rocky from here.

Root hit 11 fours off 100 balls as Eng­land, chas­ing a mod­est 213 for vic­to­ry, got there with 17 overs to spare to pile on the pres­sure for Windies skip­per Ja­son Hold­er and his team, who will now have to win their re­main­ing five match­es to have a chance of get­ting to the play­off phase.
