Jonny Bairstow made mincemeat of the chase with a 58-ball century, England's third-fastest and his second in consecutive innings, adding 155 in 20.2 overs for the first wicket alongside the recalled Alex Hales.

Eoin Morgan, in his 200th ODI, won a crucial toss and backed his bowlers in the field. Woakes, who claimed Santner's wicket, was the most economical of the England bowlers taking three for 32 off his 10 overs.
