England have smashed a new world record one-day score, pulverising Australia's bowlers to hit 6-481 at Trent Bridge in the third ODI on the back of centuries from Jonny Bairstow and Alex Hales.
Bairstow smashed 139 – his fourth ODI century in 2018 – while Hales made 147 and there were half-centuries too for Jason Roy (82) and Eoin Morgan (67).
England hit 41 boundaries and a whopping 21 sixes, dismissing an inexperienced Australian attack that took punishment all around the ground.
The score surpassed the previous ODI record of 444/3, set by England on this same ground two years ago against Pakistan.

It makes a mockery of cricket to play in Tennis Court size grounds. These records should not be taken in to account.

It seems clear that you don't follow cricket closely. England is ranked No.1 at present in one day cricket

Expatriate is absolutely right. All those fools contradicting the Expatriate should go on line and check for themselves the percentage of matches England had won in the last five years or even in the last ten years.

Yes, Cricket is the game which cannot be predicted. Even very strong teams lose to the weakest team.
