England outplays Australia in ODI

Jason Roy hit a fantastic 180 at the MCG on Sunday.

Roy without doubt was named the player of the match as England take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

England's record-breaking one day victory over Australia is fantastic for the cricketing world and clearly brings the hosts back down to earth following their glorious Ashes campaign.

Roy blasted 16 fours and five sixes in a fabulous 151-ball innings, registering England's highest individual score in ODIs and surpassing the previous record knock at the MCG, Mark Waugh's 173 in 2001.

England captain Eoin Morgan said the return of Roy, who missed selection in the Champions Trophy past year, and Root's shift down to No. 4 had really lengthened the batting lineup.

After winning the Ashes 4-nil, Australia was favoured to make light work of England in the five-match ODI series but must now bounce back in Friday's day-nighter at the Gabba.

"It is extremely special, especially after the Test series which was quite tough and we knew the boys would be a bit down".

Roy, who celebrated his century with a leap in the air, reached fifty in 32 balls and gave England a rollicking start in their chase with an opening stand of 53 with Jonny Bairstow in under five overs.

England's highest ever 50-over score - to guide his team to victory last night.

2 These teams can not be separated in the International Cricket Council rankings - but England are much closer to settling on a first-choice XI for next year's World Cup, with Australia turning to new players such as Andrew Tye and Jhye Richardson less than 18 months out.

World Cup champions Australians posted 304-8, with opener Aaron Finch scoring 107 and putting on 118 in a fourth-wicket partnership with Mitchell Marsh (50).

But Roy and Root remained in total control of the game, forcing Steve Smith to rotate between bowlers in search of a breakthrough. "We had good fun out there". I don't really have too many words right now.

Jos Buttler - 2/10 - Like Morgan, Buttler could not finish the innings as he made just 4 runs.

"I'm very clear in the moment in what I want to do in my first 30 balls, which is the most challenge of batting in cricket", he said.

On the contribution of Finch and Stoinis, he added: "Yeah, they played nicely".

Fittingly, under-fire Test skipper Joe Root was there at end, unbeaten on 91 after an innings full of character. "He was supported really well by Joe Root as well".
