On this day four years ago, Moeen Ali hit a remarkable 102 off just 57 deliveries against the West Indies in Bristol. It was a performance typical of England’s modern side in One Day Internationals, with Joe Root anchoring their setting of 369/9 with a composed 84 off 79 balls and Ben Stokes, who hit 73 off 63, and Moeen causing chaos in the middle order. The Windies were bowled out for 245 inside 40 overs as Liam Plunkett took 5-52, handing England a 124-run win.
