Moeen Ali is getting a lot of love from fans after smashing England’s second-fastest century

“Moeen Ali may be the most elegant exponent of brute force in cricket history.”

Moeen Ali crashed England’s second-fastest one-day international hundred in the third Royal London Series match against West Indies in Bristol.

Moeen, who put himself behind only his team-mate Jos Buttler in England’s all-time list of fastest ODI centurions, went from 50 to 100 in an astonishing 12 balls, completing the job with his eighth six from 53 deliveries out of 369 for nine.

His feat has garnered admiration from fans and fellow cricketers alike:

Riding on Moeen’s success, England scored 369 for 9 wickets in their 50 overs and beat West Indies by 124 runs at Bristol in the third one-day international, to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.
