Ali smashes ton as England bt West Indies

David Willey wants to cement his place in the England ODI side

England lost three wickets for 11 runs to be 217 for six in the 35th over.

England lead the series 1-0 after a seven-wicket victory at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Joe Root (84) made a more studied bid for the headlines, posting most runs across all formats in an English global summer as he and Ben Stokes (73) first hinted at a formidable total in their fourth-wicket stand of 132 after West Indies won the toss on a cloudy morning.

Stokes holed out on the cover boundary off Rovman Powell having hit two of his three sixes in succession off Ashley Nurse. "He stated he wanted to get some 50-over cricket in, which is fair enough, but if he decides he wants to give ODIs a go, he'd be one of the first picks with the spin he provides".

This has been England's longest global home season, having started with a one-day worldwide against Morgan's native Ireland in Bristol on 5 May.

Joe Root, England's Test captain, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali and Stokes were all included in the side for Thursday's abandoned second ODI at Trent Bridge.

But Hales went lbw on DRS when Cummins slanted one into him in his first over, and Eoin Morgan's wretched recent run continued as Holder found movement off the pitch too and he edged behind first ball.

Moeen and Woakes did so initially.

Moeen hit eight sixes in the course of 14 balls, and moved from 50 to 100 off only 12 balls.

Moeen, who was dropped on 87 and then the ball before he was dismissed, eventually fell for 102 off 57 deliveries.

Only Jos Buttler, from 46 balls against Pakistan in 2015, has ever got there faster for England.

Then in the next over Moeen smashed the first three deliveries from Windies captain Jason Holder over the ropes in an over which yielded 25 more.
