He failed this time, as his dangerous-looking start was soon stopped by opposition captain Jason Holder. Later, England were reduced to 74 for 3 as Alex Hales was sent back for 36 and Eoin Morgan followed him with a golden duck. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Joe Root, Ben Stokes score half-centuries:</strong> After England lost a couple of wickets in succession, Root and Stokes came to the rescue. They put up a 132-run partnership and scored individual half-centuries while taking the team-score past 200. Stokes departed for 73, while Root followed him soon after with his 84. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Moeen Ali s fireworks:</strong> Moeen stole Sunday s show with sixes at galore. Moeen seemed to be in a different mood as he walked out to bat and took very little time to start hammering the West Indies bowlers mercilessly. He scored a 53-ball hundred, which is the second-fastest by any Englishman. He hit 7 fours and 8 sixes in his 102-run knock. <p></p> <p></p><strong>England post biggest ODI total against West Indies:</strong> England's 369 was the biggest ever total they scored in an ODI against West Indies. The previous best was 328 for 7 at Edgbaston. This is their fifth-highest total against any team in ODIs. <p></p> <p></p><strong>West Indies lose Evin Lewis early:</strong> Among the current limited-overs players for West Indies, Lewis is one of the most consistent batsmen. Lewis failed to play a big knock and he was dismissed by David Willey early as West Indies chased a big target of 370. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Chris Gayle scores first fifty since 2015:</strong> Gayle s inclusion to West Indies ODI side proved to be beneficial for his side as he scored a timely half-century. This was his first since the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 quarterfinal against New Zealand. Unfortunately, he missed on his century, departing for 94. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Adil Rashid s direct hit:</strong> Adil Rashid effected a run out which handed England the costliest wicket of the day that of Chris Gayle. Gayle, who was batting in his nineties, hurried for a single. Rashid quickly picked up the ball to hit it straight to the middle stump as Gayle failed to get inside his crease, getting out for 94. Rashid also contributed with 3 wickets in during his spell. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Liam Plunkett s 5-star show:</strong> Plunkett was England s best bowler on Sunday, picking up 5 for 52. He ran through the West Indies top and middle order, bagging wickets which included those of Marlon Samuels, Shai Hope and Jason Holder. This is also his maiden ODI 5-for. <p></p> <p></p><strong>England take the lead:</strong> With two victories from three ODIs (second bore no result), England have ensured at least a drawn series with West Indies as they lead the five-match series 2-0.
