England smash ODI world record, make 481 against Australia


Nottingham: Alex Hales (147 off 92) and Eoin Morgan (67 off 30) went on a rampage as England set a one-day international cricket record of 481-6 against Australia in the third ODI in Nottingham.

Jonny Bairstow made 139 from 92 balls and England finished with run rate of 9.62. Opener Jason Roy also hit 82 from just 61 balls.

The previous highest total was 444 for three, which England made against Pakistan at the same ground two years ago.

Australia need 482 to win after winning the toss and sending England in.

Andrew Tye went for 100 from nine overs while Marcus Stoinis had figures of 0-85 from eight overs. The pick of the Aussies bowlers, if you could say that, was Jhye Richardson who had 3-92 from 10 overs.
