Watch When Chris Gayle hit Brett Lee for monster sixes in World Cup

Watch When Chris Gayle hit Brett Lee for monster sixes in World Cup

"I thought we were in a bit of trouble, then we lost those three wickets and we both had to rebuild a bit".

He should have been out for 87 when he smashed a Jerome Taylor full toss to point only for fit again Chris Gayle, back from a hamstring injury, to drop the catch. The second fifty came of just 12 balls.

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

Joe Root (84) made a more studied bid for the headlines, posting most runs across all formats in an English worldwide summer as he and Ben Stokes (73) first hinted at a formidable total in their fourth-wicket stand of 132 after West Indies won the toss on a cloudy morning.

He eventually holed out off spinner Ashley Nurse and received a standing ovation from a near-capacity crowd.

Performance of England has been quite mesmerizing throughout the series of cricket matches played against WI.

While Moeen has long had a reputation as one of the most eye-catching ball-strikers in England's team, even he had never really considered himself a six-hitter in the mould of Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler.

Meanwhile West Indies captain Jason Holder was left to lament his side s inability to build on a promising start, their cause not aided by some sloppy fielding as they suffered a 14th defeat in 15 completed ODIs against England.

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

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 gave Moeen a dose of his own medicine by easing him for three consecutive sixes to move into the 90s, but was run out by a direct hit from Rashid as he casually ambled through for a single.

The all-rounder made the most of the short boundaries at Bristol to hit eight sixes in a knock of 102 from 57 deliveries, although in truth, the rope could have been 20 yards further back and the majority would still have cleared it comfortably.
