Moeen Ali's staggering century down the order — the fastest on English soil — propelled England to a heavy 124-run victory over West Indies in the third one-day international on Sunday. 

Ali bludgeoned 102 off 57 balls, with seven fours and eight sixes, to get England to 369/9 batting first, its fifth-highest ODI total.

West Indies was all out for 245 in just 39.1 overs, with Chris Gayle's 94 from 78 balls the tourists' best response. Liam Plunkett picked up 5-52 for England, which now leads the series 2-0 with two to play.

Ali, who arrived with England 210/5 and wobbling at the County Ground, devastated the West Indian bowling with the second fastest ODI century by an Englishman. He went from 50 to 100 in a jaw-dropping 12 deliveries, an ODI record. He raced past 50 and to his century by hitting eight sixes and two fours in the space of 14 balls.
