England v West Indies: Moeen Ali reaches brilliant century

England v West Indies: Moeen Ali reaches brilliant century

"I felt me and Woakesy had got to a situation where we had got ourselves in and it was time to press the button and play a few shots and the ground is a good size for someone like myself - it's not a massive hit for six", Moeen said.

That in itself was the second fastest by any England player in 50-over cricket, only Jos Buttler's 43-ball hundred against Pakistan in Dubai back in 2015 quicker.

Ali's six-hitting assault really got going as England scored a remarkable 50 runs in two overs-the 45 and 46th of their innings.

The southpaw suffered an injury to his hamstring while warming up ahead of the second ODI that was scheduled on Thursday also his 38th birthday.

He should have been out for 87 when he smashed a Jerome Taylor full toss to point only for Gayle to drop the catch at point.

He eventually holed out off spinner Ashley Nurse and received a standing ovation from a near-capacity crowd.

Ali went to his century with two sixes in three balls off Cummins-a pull over deep square leg followed by a soaring drive over long-on. In England, the match is available on Sky Sports 2 HD and Sky Sports 2.

"We leaked runs at the death and we paid for it", Holder said.

West Indies reached the first three World Cup finals, all staged in England, winning the inaugural edition in 1975 and repeating that achievement in 1979 before suffering a shock defeat by India at Lord's in the climax of the 1983 edition.

The tourists were in no mood to go too quietly, despite Liam Plunkett's maiden five-wicket haul, and took the match maximum count to 28 - Chris Gayle (94) with six, including three in succession off Moeen - in their 245 all out.

The all-rounder made the most of the short boundaries at Bristol to hit eight sixes in a knock of 102 from 57 deliveries, although in truth, the rope could have been 20 yards further back and the majority would still have cleared it comfortably.

The series continues at The Oval on Wednesday.
