Moeen Ali's late dart got England ahead of the DLS England v West Indies 4th ODI The Oval

England ended on 258-5 in 35.1 overs, good enough to win after West Indies had posted 356-5 from their 50 overs.

England survived without Ben Stokes as another of its influential allrounders set up victory over West Indies in the rain-shortened fourth one-day worldwide on Wednesday to clinch the series.

Their huge total had centred on a brutal 176 from 130 balls from Evin Lewis, whose free hitting recently led West Indies' Twenty20 captain Carlos Brathwaite to suggest he would outshine Chris Gayle. The hosts have been surrounded by some not-so-good incidents off the field.

That moment of misfortune proved costly for Holder's team, for whom Alzarri Joseph claimed a career-best 5-56.

England's star men combined to end the match when West Indies captain Jason Holder (34) holed out off Plunkett to Ali at long-off.

But after the fall of Roy, England lost five wickets for 55 runs.

Chris Woakes (3-71) ensured the tourists got off to a sticky start. West Indies 113/3 after 21 overs.

He was eyeing a double century until his freak injury left him writhing in agony. The southpaw set a record for highest score by a batsman before getting retired hurt.

Apart from Chris Gayle, none of the other West Indies batsmen have rose to the occasion.

But England all-rounder Ben Stokes, who made 73 on Sunday, will definitely miss Wednesday's match after he was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm in Bristol in the early hours of Monday morning before being released under investigation, without charge.

There could be far-reaching consequences but, in the very near term, England will have to replace two key members of their first-choice XI (Alex Hales, who was with Stokes, has also been ruled out of the Oval match).

As we have seen in the past, when teams only play for pride, changes in the playing 11 are nearly inevitable.

Evin Lewis - 10/10 - Sensational display of ODI batting from an exceptional young talent. "We were up against it, but it was an extremely confident innings (from Ali)".

Having brought up a 94-ball century, Lewis needed only a further 26 deliveries to go to 150 as an over of Moeen's off-spin was taken for 25.

Jake Ball - 2/10 - Made no impact with the ball and was carted all around the park by Lewis and Holder.

Indeed, the home side slumped from 126 without loss to 181-5 before Moeen Ali (48 not out) - the 53-ball century hero at Bristol last time out - and Jos Buttler (43 not out) put things back on track.

As part of this arrangement, there will be collection points manned by the Red Cross at the two venues for remaining matches in the series. It has been a bumpy old tour for West Indies but they still have a chance to level this series if they can surprise an England team suffering a self-inflicted wound.
