MOEEN Ali believes James Vince needs to enjoy playing in the World Cup to make the most of his undoubted talent.

Vince will continue to deputise for Jason Roy against Sri Lanka at Headingley today, looking to raise his top score of 51 from his first 11 caps.

“It’s been very difficult for him, I think,” said Moeen, who will win his 100th cap in Leeds - the 22nd Englishman to reach the milestone.

“He’s always come in knowing he’s probably not going to be there for longer than two games, maybe even one sometimes.

“I’d probably just say to him...make the most of it. You’re playing a World Cup in England, we’re probably never going to do it again.

“Don’t get too caught up in trying to make sure you have to score a hundred or think you have to score runs.

“They will come - he’s such a good player that those runs will definitely come if he just almost enjoys it rather than thinking it’s always a test.”

Liam Plunkett and Tom Curran could be in line for recalls should England choose to rest one or both of Mark Wood and Chris Woakes.

Roy has already been ruled out of the match with a torn hamstring but was tempted to hit a few balls in a side net while England trained yesterday. He was soon advised to cease by medical staff, and instead completed several laps of the pitch at walking pace.

England will go top if they beat Sri Lanka and open up a big gap between the top four and the rest.
