ICC World Cup 2019 – Twitter Reactions: Joe Root’s all-round show leads England to an easy win over West Indies

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.

Root remained the star of the show at the Rose Bowl with an unbeaten 100 and two wickets with the ball.
