England set a world record total of 481 for 6 against Australia in the third ODI at Trent Bridge on Tuesday after Tim Paine put them in. Jason Roy (82 in 61 balls) began the carnage, and Jonny Bairstow (139 in 92) improved on that. Even that was bettered by Alex Hales (147 in 92), and Eoin Morgan, coming at No. 5, slammed the fastest fifty for England. Australia probably got away towards the end, conceding ‘only’ 104 in the last 10 overs. Here are some statistical highlights from England’s carnage:
