By Jonathan Veal

Moeen Ali insists his maiden Test-match century lost some shine after England’s heart-breaking Investec Series defeat to Sri Lanka.

The 27-year-old all-rounder, playing just his second Test, batted for 385 minutes as he compiled a watchful and unbeaten 108 at Headingley in a bid to try and save the game and series.

But that knock was in vain as the hosts slipped to a 100-run defeat, with last man James Anderson falling to the penultimate ball of the match.
