Australia fall to heaviest defeat after England record 481

England broke their own all-time record for the highest total ever scored in a men's one-day worldwide when they posted 481 for six Australia at Trent Bridge on Tuesday.

Jonny Bairstow's swahsbuckling 139 and a magnificent 147 by Alex Hales took England past the total they achieved two years ago against Pakistan at the same ground, scoring 481 for the loss of six wickets in 50 overs.

Hundreds from Jonny Bairstow and Alex Hales, Jason Roy's 82 and Eoin Morgan's 67 from just 30 balls saw England reach a phenomenal 481-6 in the third game of the series.

Australia, who are 2-0 down in the five-match series, won the toss.

Australian bowler Andrew Tye. Surrey had hammered the gargantuan total against Gloucestershire at The Oval during the 2007 Friends Provident Trophy.

Bairstow has arguably been England's best player across all three formats over the past year and his century, coming off 69 balls, was his fourth in ODIs in 2018.


England have broken the record for the highest score in ODI cricket with a brutal display of hitting against Australia, winning by 242 runs.

England's openers set a remarkable tempo, and Australia had no answer as Tim Paine deployed eight different bowlers in the first 24 overs - to no avail. But he was back to his best at his home ground in Nottingham and reached three figures even quicker than Bairstow, his seventh worldwide ton coming off 62 balls. "It's a case of following and watching the ball". Over the past four years, England team not only came over their embarrassing ODI World Cup performance but also managed to become an elite ODI team.

Australia, however, were gifted a wicket when Roy ran himself out going for a needless second run. In a series of social media posts, Ganguly wrote, "To see nearly 500 runs scored in 50 overs in England is scaring me, bout the health of the game and where it's going". Off-spinner Moeen Ali took 3/28.

"We have 12 months until the World Cup and we are looking at some options", he said.

"The wicket was still terrific when we batted on it as well". This Australia attack, missing at least three first-choice seamers as it is, is not the strongest and the relatively short boundaries meant that, a couple of times, top-edges carried for sixes.
