Ali's rapid ton too much for West Indies

"I enjoyed myself", Ali told Sky Sports. He hit seven fours and eight sixes, with the last eight balls resulting in 42 Runs.

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

The long and arduous road to 2019 World Cup for West Indies starts with the 3rd ODI at Bristol, England.

Jason Holder, too, announced that Chris Gayle could be back for the tie, after missing out at Trent Bridge due to a hamstring pull.

But a partnership of 117 in 76 balls between Ali and Chris Woakes (34) turned the tide.

Joe Root and Ben Stokes countered though and put on 132 for the fourth wicket, both motoring past 50 before Stokes (73 from 63 balls) holed out, looking to push things on once more.

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.

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 felt Rooty and Stokesy did a fantastic job for us", he said.

"Moeen Ali s innings was the difference between the sides, certainly with the batting anyway", he said. "We didn't field well, we were a just bit sloppy, a couple of misfields and dropped chances".

Law said there are a number of players that are not now part of the side in England that may come into the reckoning, and there will be much for him and the Cricket West Indies selection panel to consider.

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.

The series continues at The Oval on Wednesday.
