MOEEN Ali helped England to win the one-day international series against New Zealand with victory in Wellington.

The Worcestershire all-rounder finished as his country’s most economical bowler of the players who featured in all five games.

He produced another tight performance with the ball as England triumphed by seven wickets earlier today to take the series 3-2.

Moeen bowled his 10 overs for just 39 runs and accounted for Black Caps left-hander Mark Chapman who was bowled for a duck.

He ended the series with overall figures of 43-2-190-6 and conceded just 4.41 runs per over, a figure only bettered by David Willey but he played in just two matches.

Moeen’s best performance was his 3-36 in the win in Wellington which earned him the man-of-the-match award.

Only 67 from Worcestershire 2016 and 2017 T20 Blast player Mitchell Santner helped New Zealand reach a respectable 223 all out in the decider after they had been 93-6 at one stage.

But then Jonny Bairstow (104) and Alex Hales (61) hurried England to victory in just 32.4 overs.

Meanwhile, Ross Whiteley was dismissed for a first-ball duck as his side Multan Sultans went down by six wickets to Lahore Qalandars in Dubai in the Pakistan Super League.

Sultans collapsed from 92-1 to 114 all out with Whiteley bowled by 17-year-old Shaheen Afridi who finished with 5-4 from 3.4 overs.

Joe Clarke was not part of the England Lions side beaten by 25 runs by West Indies A in the second ODI in Antigua. He had missed the opening game through illness.
