Norfolk ace Callum Taylor was unbeaten on 21 when England finished on 371 for three from their 50 overs, after Dan Lawrence scored 174 and Jack Burnham 148, sharing a second-wicket stand of 303.

Former Cromer High School pupil Taylor scored his 21 from just seven balls, including four fours.

Fiji were then dismissed for just 72, in 27.3 overs and less than two hours.

Next up for England is West Indies on Friday, which is being shown live on Sky Sports from 2.30am UK time on Friday.
