This is a massive total from England. There wasn’t a whole heap of help for the bowlers from the pitch, but with one very big boundary, and a little bit of swing in the air, this is surely well above par.

Jos Buttler batted fantastically for his 64, and Plunkett and Woakes pushed the total even higher than it looked like it was going to be in the final few overs. But the story of the innings was Jason Roy’s magnificent 153 off just 121 balls. He and Bairstow set the platform for the rest of the batsmen to attack from, and that’s surely going to be up there for one of the finest innings of the tournament come the end.

It’s going to require something very special to chase this down.

Also, Buttler will not field due to tightness in his right hip, which is what he was struggling with while batting. Bairstow will take the gloves.
