Woakes and Ali started with the opening pair of Evin Lewis and Lendl Simmons being dismissed for a combined nine.
Returning seven runs from a steady opening over, Lewis tried to hit Woakes over his head, only for Ali to produce a brilliant catch over the shoulder as he ran from mid-off to a boundary.
Simmons followed shortly after, caught in the deep by Liam Livingstone as he tried to kick Ali out of the park.

With 13 runs, Gayle was the only West Indies batsman to reach double digits as Eoin Morgan managed his bowling choices brilliantly.
Jordan and Mills accounted for Dwayne Bravo and Nicholas Pooran before Rashid took the remaining four wickets.
