BRISTOL: Moeen Ali’s blazing century powered England to an imposing total of 369 for nine in the third one-day international against West Indies at Bristol on Sunday.

The Worcestershire all-rounder sprinted to his hundred off 53 balls, with nearly half of his runs coming via eight sixes, before he fell for 102.

His century also included seven fours, with the left-hander needing a mere 12 balls for his second fifty.

England’s total was their largest in a one-day international against West Indies, surpassing their 328 for seven at Birmingham’s Edgbaston ground in 2009, and their fifth-largest in this format overall.

Ali’s hundred was also the second quickest by an England batsman at this level after Jos Buttler’s 46-ball ODI century against Pakistan in Dubai in 2015.
