West Indies break record for number of sixes in an ODI inning

Chris Gayle hits 12 sixes against England to break world record West Indies break record for number of sixes in an ODI inning

Jason Roy and Joe Root hit centuries to power England to its record one-day run chase on Wednesday, seeing off the West Indies by six wickets after weathering a barrage of sixes by Chris Gayle.

But captain Jason Holder lamented the chances his team missed, with Roy and Root both dropped twice, the latter firstly when he was on 46. "West Indies are very strong at the moment and we're not taking them lightly".

Chris Gayle led the assault as he smashed 135 off 129 despite initially getting off to a slow start in his innings which included 12 sixes and with his teammates adding 11 maximums, the West Indies broke the word record for number of sixes in an innings with 23.

While Bravo made amends in Bishoo's next over Nurse, who had an terrible night in the field, was unable to hold onto a firm cut at point when Root was 46 off Thomas. "The way they batted proves that", he said, via the ICC.

"The bowlers did create chances, but we didn't hold them - nearly 6-7 chances".

While the basketball player tried to play the role of doting partner and dad, he couldn't hold up the good guy act for long. The 27-year-old, 6'9 power forward was caught motorboating a woman at a Hookah Lounge in Washington D.C.at the time.

"You can´t give quality players so many opportunities and expect to be competing at the end". "We got a few Barbadians in the squad, all of the guys have played here, some of them have had some really good success here as well, so psychological it is a good boost". I felt the energy and body language could have been a lot better. He still remains highly underrated despite adding very big value to the side and the underrated status will definitely blow away given he does a good job in the World Cup which his country will be hosting in a few months time.

Morgan, meanwhile, praised his side's belief in chasing such a large total - it was England's largest successful chase in their ODI history and the third-highest successful chase in all ODIs - and the "outstanding" contribution of the opening pair of Roy and Bairstow. At no stage did we feel we were under pressure to up the rate.

Hope's impressive 64 off 65 ended when he top edged a ball from Stokes - who finished as the pick of the England bowlers - to Adil Rashid at third man. Hope had put on a 131-run partnerhship with Gayle off as many balls.

The swashbuckling Jason Roy and the ever-consistent Jonny Bairstow will open for the English, with Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler coming in the middle order.

On at least five occasions the ball had to be replaced after disappearing out of the ground, as the West Indies piled up 8-360 from their 50 overs.
