Chasing a massive target of 357, England got off to a great start, thanks to Jason Roy. He was fluent in his 84 while Bairstow struggled for his 39. The opening stand of 126 came up in 106 balls but once Roy fell, there was a collapse. In next to no time, the home side slipped to 181/5 with all the dismissals credited to young Alzarri Joseph. The hosts take the series then, with an unassailable 3-0 lead and a final game to go this summer.

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 ODI 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. Ali smashed 61 runs from those 14 balls.
