Moeen Ali scored a century in just 53 balls as England beat the West Indies in the 3rd ODI in Bristol.
Moeen started slowly, before unleashing in a stand of 117 with Chris Woakes.
“I felt me and Woakesy had got to a situation where we had got ourselves in and it was time to press the button and play a few shots and the ground is a good size for someone like myself - it’s not a massive hit for six,” Moeen said.
“I just had a slog really and everything seemed to come off.
"Around 42 overs we were in a decent position to really go and in the end he was trying to give me one as I felt I was in the zone and everything was coming off.
"The ground wasn’t the biggest and I felt they bowled a little bit in the slot for myself.”
Moeen hit eight sixes off just 14 balls, and then went from 50 to 100 in a staggering 12 balls.
“I know there’s going to be tough times ahead (this winter in Australia) and I try not to get too over-confident.
"But, I feel I’ve played quite a bit for England and the experience is allowing me to keep focused and not think too far ahead. I feel both my batting and bowling are improving all the time.”
The all-rounder has started to hit form at just the perfect time.
England announce their squad for the Ashes tour of Australia at 10am BST on Wednesday, and Moeen is almost certain to be included in that squad.
Although Moeen was hit for six sixes himself, the boundaries at Bristol’s are so short, he finished a long way in credit following his antics at the crease.
England meet West Indies in the last two matches at the Oval on Wednesday and the Ageas Bowl on Friday, both day/nighters.
