Moeen Ali hits eight sixes in second-fastest England ODI century

Following a disappointing Champions Trophy, it has been a wonderful summer for Moeen Ali, the man of the Test series against South Africa and now the holder of the record for the fastest century made in a one-day global in England, off only 53 balls.

Opening batsman Chris Gayle is fit again to play for the West Indies after injuring his hamstring in the warmup ahead of the second ODI.

Jos Buttler holds the record for the fastest ODI hundred for England.

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

Moeen was, though, aided by Gayle during that breathtaking passage of play, the West Indian dropping a simple chance at backward point when the Englishman was on 87.

A third six from the left-hander took him to a 38-ball half-century, but Plunkett had Shai Hope (20) caught behind and Marlon Samuels (11) went the same way when he was harshly adjudged to have feathered through to Buttler on review. "I just tried to slog it as much as I could". "But the ground wasn't the biggest and I felt like they bowled a little bit in the slot".

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said banks doing business in North Korea would not be allowed to operate in the United States. The country also has tested more than a dozen missiles this year, some of which have flown over Japan - a strong US ally.

Moeen Ali produced what has to be one of the most imperious batting displays so far in the year.

Hales went lbw on DRS when Cummins slanted one into him in his first over, however, and Eoin Morgan's wretched run continued when Holder found movement off the pitch too to have him caught-behind first ball.

The long and arduous road to 2019 World Cup for West Indies starts with the 3rd ODI at Bristol, England. "The players need to take the ownership on themselves".

First game was won by the national team of hosting country.

Gayle, who wrote the book on one-day power hitting, struck off-spinner Ali for three straight sixes in as many balls while the floodlights pierced the increasing gloom. That over produced three sixes, two fours and a total of 25 runs and Moeen Ali reached his 50 that came in 41 balls.
