MOEEN Ali reached his maiden international half-century during the on-going third one-day international of the current series with West Indies.

The County batsman went to his milestone off just 51 balls, but was dismissed shortly afterwards as he was caught and bowled by Nikita Miller for 55 in the game at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.

Left-hander Moeen launched Marlon Samuels over the midwicket fence with a well-timed slog sweep to go to his fifty, but his dismissal left England on 115-3 in the 23rd over.
