Joe Root made history as England comfortably beat West Indies by eight wickets in Southampton on Friday.
The stand-in opener became the first Englishman to score three World Cup hundreds as the hosts moved up to second position in the points table.
After opting to bowl first, England dismissed the Windies side for just 212, but sustained injuries to Eoin Morgan and Jason Roy along the way.
Root remained the star of the show at the Rose Bowl with an unbeaten 100 and two wickets with the ball.
