However, Roy - who dropped Gayle on nine - rarely looked troubled as the number one ranked one-day team played with a controlled aggression to surpass the 350-3 they made against New Zealand at Trent Bridge in 2015.

Friday 11:46 GMT

In Maurizio Sarri's case, the message does not seem to have got through for the past month, but during Thursday's 3-0 Europa League last-32 second-leg win over Malmo at least he got a break from his own fans.
