It was a brilliant win for England against Bangladesh as they responded after their World Cup defeat to Pakistan with an emphatic 106-run victory.

Bangladesh are a good side, so any win against them is a good win. They have some world-class players.

The way Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow started our innings was phenomenal, wasn’t it?

When Roy first came into England’s team, he was in his element, playing one-day cricket. He was changing games because his strike-rate was around the 150 mark and, sometimes, it was even upwards of that.

But what the 28-year-old can do now is build an innings. He has matured.

He has learnt when to take the low-risk option against certain bowlers at the right times. He knows, sometimes, he is better off going for low-risk fours, rather than trying to hit high-risk sixes, as well as when he needs to settle in and simply take the odd ones or twos which he did superbly on his way to 153 at the Cardiff Wales Stadium.

That comes from consistently playing on good pitches, like he does at The Oval, which gives him great confidence. He seems to have realised as a top-order batsman that 50-over cricket provides him with a great platform to get big scores.

If he can get through the fielding restrictions in the first 15 overs, then there are plenty of opportunities and gaps, with the fielders out. Then, if he needs to, he can go hard again in the last 15 overs.

After last Monday’s 14-run defeat against Pakistan, it was pleasing to see England bounce back.

It was important that we didn’t get too down after that loss. We learnt from it, we parked it and we have now moved on.

What pleased me the most about England’s win over the Tigers was, while we have a pretty settled side and everyone seems to have role clarity within the team, it was still pleasing to see Jos Buttler go up the batting order because of the situation in the match.

I think that shows real confidence in the team to be able to do that.

Next up for England is a trip to the Hampshire Bowl to take on the West Indies tomorrow.

The West Indians seem to have real pace and bounce in their bowling attack. Last Thursday, they took on Australia at their own game, focusing on short-pitched bowling which the likes of Mitchell Johnson and Brett Lee have done for Australia in the past, and ended up only losing by 15 runs.

With the likes of Oshane Thomas and Sheldon Cottrell in their attack, the West Indies know they have some real firepower. Andre Russell can leak runs but, generally, he takes wicket.

Captain Jason Holder has played in England now at Northants, and he is a real class act, both on and off the field. So, you have to be able to handle the short ball well to stand a chance against the West Indies.

I think we have the players who are capable of doing that, but you do need to play the short ball well against them.

It has been great to see West Indian bowlers hurrying batsman again. It’s been West Indian cricket from years ago, which is brilliant and exciting to watch.

Meanwhile, at the top of their batting line-up, the Windies have Chris Gayle. He is world-class.

His record in all formats is phenomenal. If he faces 40 balls, then England are in trouble. But if you can get him out inside the first 30 balls, then that’s a big boost.

There are a lot of players whose strike-rate can be around the 100 mark, but what wins matches is guys who can strike at 150 or 200. Players such as Roy, Buttler, England captain Eoin Morgan and Gayle are all capable of doing that.

That’s what hurts you and takes games away from sides.

Gayle, who I have worked with when coaching in the Caribbean Premier League, has been the best in the world at the top of an international batting order for more than a decade. But he is 39 now, so he is getting older, he is getting more and more fearful of the short ball in my opinion, and he is starting to come to the end of his career.

But if you bowl poorly to him, he will still hurt you.

For Jofra Archer, it will also be an interesting test as he comes up against the country of his birth. But he has played against good players in county cricket.

I think it won’t faze him. He knows he is in total control of his game and he knows he has the pace to scare any batsman.

He is a very special young man because he has the gift of being able to bowl fast, with a fantastic bouncer that the batsman can’t see because there are no cues for the batsman on when he is going to bowl it.

That makes him deadly.

South African all-rounder Shaun Pollock had the same skill - you couldn’t pick his bouncer from any other delivery. His stride pattern was the same, his delivery was the same and he didn’t put in any extra effort, which makes a big difference.

That is what gets good players out.
