England smash World Record: Post highest-ever ODI total

Nottingham: England smashed their way to a world record One-Day International (ODI) total of 481 for six as they demolished a lacklustre Australia bowling lineup to all parts of Trent Bridge, Nottingham in the third ODI of the five-match series on Tuesday.

Jonny Bairstow’s swashbuckling 139 and a magnificent 147 by Alex Hales helped England go past the total of 444 for three they made against Pakistan, also at Trent Bridge, two years ago.

In reply to England’s gigantic total, Australia, who got off to a poor start, were dismissed for 239 in 37 overs as the Eoin Morgan-led team won the match by 242 runs. Adil Rashid was the pick of the bowlers as he returned with figures of 4/47 in his stipulated 10 overs.
