England set to face West Indies in third ODI

England's Moeen Ali gestures after reaching his century off 53 balls during the third one day global cricket match played between England and the West Indies at the Brightside Ground in Bristol.

The final moments of Moeen's innings had a touch of comedy about them as he was dropped twice in two balls by Ashley Nurse, the second an absolute howler off a top-edged slog, before picking out Holder one ball later.

But it was Cummins who bore the brunt of Moeen's brutality, hit for successive sixes as England's man of the moment reached both his 50 and 100 with back-to-back maximums.

With Ali leading the charge, England scored 123 runs in their last 10 overs after being sent into bat.

Victory gave them an unassailable 2-0 lead in the third of the five-match series after the second game was washed out last week.

England already had a healthy run rate but were a vulnerable 217 for six when Moeen and Woakes joined forces in the 35th over.

Batting first, England powered to 369 for nine with Ali contributing with 102 of 57 balls.

"You don't think about it, and you just try to hit every ball for six really.when it's there just have a good go, and keep going".

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

Another pair of sixes took him to his ton and although he was caught in the deep soon after, the damage had been done.

(Moeen) has played a special innings.

In fact, Moeen scored 48 runs in one ten-ball span - the joint-most in the history of one-day cricket, placing him alongside former South African dasher Herschelle Gibbs.

Root clipped through mid-wicket and guided behind point, while Stokes targeted mid-on and played sweeps of all kinds against the spinners.

But this year saw the Caribbean side fail to qualify for the elite Champions Trophy one-day tournament as they were outside the world's top eight 50-over teams.

Even with the fit-again Gayle in such ominous form after recovering from a hamstring injury, West Indies still fell well short of their target of 370 for victory in this third match of the series.

"It was my best ODI innings", he said. Rashid came into the attack and picked up three wickets and Plunkett returned to add another three to his tally, including the wicket of Holder (34) to seal the win.

Plunkett then had both Shai Hope (20) and Marlon Samuels (11) caught behind, the latter on a tight review.

The second one-day global between England and West Indies at Trent Bridge was abandoned because of heavy rain on Thursday.
