Eoin Morgan delights in win as he becomes England's leading run scorer

England celebrate taking the wicket of Australia's Tim Paine

England have broken the world record for the most runs scored in a one-day worldwide cricket match, leaving Australia's new-look team reeling.

NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND - JUNE 19: Jonny Bairstow of England celebrates reaching his century with Alex Hales during the third Royal London One-Day International match between England and Australia at Trent Bridge on June 19, 2018 in Nottingham, England.

Jonny Bairstow and Alex Hales scored centuries - and Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan smashed fifties - as the home side posted a mammoth 481-6 at Trent Bridge, breaking their own record from two years ago.

The emphatic victory handed England an unassailable 3-0 series lead and an eighth win in the last nine meetings between the sides.

He fell short of that milestone today, being run out for 82, but Bairstow, Hales and Morgan were on hand to inflict the punishment. Only once in the history of List A cricket.

Den returned in the early 2000s after being supposedly killed off in 1989, before leaving for good in 2005. According to The Sun, the screen star had been visited in hospital by close friends in the industry.

The previous highest-ever ODI of England was 444, scored against Pakistan at Trent Bridge back in 2016.

The 242-run defeat was Australia's heaviest defeat in 47 years and 915 games of one-day cricket, surpassing a 206-run loss to New Zealand in 1986. But he was back to his best at his home ground in Nottingham and reached three figures even quicker than Bairstow, his seventh global ton coming off 62 balls.

England notched their 2nd consecutive ODI series win against the world champions. On the sort of pitch that most batsmen would like to whisk to Paris for the weekend - and most bowlers would like to never see again - England gorged and feasted on runs until they dripped down their chins. "It's a case of following and watching the ball". The visitors will need to reverse history as only twice have teams breached the 400-run mark whilst batting second in ODIs.

On the next ball Morgan, whose tally of 5,443 ODI runs for England in 180 match took him past Ian Bell's 5416 in 161 - also holed out. Off-spinner Moeen Ali took 3/28. Suffice to say, all pretence of maintaining a balance between bat and ball disappears in such circumstances. "Their top three are brutal".

"Sometimes you've just got to accept what you've got and be ultra-defensive from the start, put a few more fielders in front of the batsman's face and see if you can create a bit of pressure that way".
