England continued their domination in the ODI format by registering their highest successful chase during the first game of the 5-match series against the Windies. In the game played at the Kensington Oval in Barbados, the hosts posted 360/8 in their 50 overs thanks to Chris Gayle‘s 135-run knock. England chased down the target with six wickets and eight balls to spare with Jason Roy scoring an 85-ball 123 and was supported by Joe Root with a 97-ball 102.

All the major stats and numbers recorded during the high scoring first ODI match:

A record-breaking chase:

361 – The 361-run chase by England in this game is the 3rd highest in ODI history. South Africa successfully chased down 435 in the 2006 Johannesburg ODI and 372 in the Durban ODI; both against Australia. England’s previous highest successful chase was 350 against New Zealand during the Nottingham ODI in 2015.

724 – The match is the first-ever ODI game with 700+ runs in the Caribbean Islands. The previous highest aggregated ODI in the West Indies is 671 runs during the 2007 CWC game between Australia and South Africa at Basseterre.

29 – The 29 sixes hit during this game are the 4th most in an ODI game. The India-Australia Bangalore ODI in 2013 witnessed a record 38 sixes while New Zealand’s 2009 ODI against India in Christchurch and 2015 ODI against Windies in Hamilton witnessed 31 sixes apiece.

The 406 runs coming via boundaries are also the most in an ODI in the West Indies surpassing 390 runs during the AUS-SA 2007 World Cup game.

A quick blitz from Jason Roy:

4 – Number of centuries Jason Roy has scored during 300+ runs chases in ODI cricket; the joint 2nd most by any player. Virat Kohli leads the list with eight hundreds in 300+ chases while Kumar Sangakkara also has four ODI hundreds while chasing a target of 300+.
