Jason Roy vandalize Australia into submission — Twitter Reactions

The previous-best ODI score for England, by Alex Hales against Pakistan in 2016. Also important was the resolve of England's limited-overs players to bring positive vigour to the touring team after the trials of an Ashes series lost 4-0.

"Incredibly special", Roy said.

"[His innings against Australia] is on the back of a tough summer but he finished it incredibly well", Morgan said.

That may be stretching it a bit far, but England do have a choice to make at the top of the other.

"We had that discussion a few days ago, I suggested to him that he shouldn't play, that he should have a break", Bayliss was quoted as saying by British media on Tuesday. But it's one win, four more games to go.

As such, the European Central Bank will be praying desperately not only for a competitive showing in the upcoming five ODIs against Australia, but also that Test results improve when the circus moves on to New Zealand. I've played a lot against those guys in the Champions Trophy, in series in England and here, too. It is extremely special, especially after the Test series.

"I've got time going into the New Zealand series to get myself clear on how I want to move forward, and if the lads aren't prepared to get onboard with that then we've got to go with something different", he warned.

Are Manchester City about to give up on Alexis Sanchez?
It shows you that there is no one at the top of the club making the decisions that need to be made. But in relation to Alexis Sanchez , I don't say a word.

Roy had started to show frustration when he was given lbw on 91, misreading Adam Zampa's googly. The Big bash has been a great success and draws plenty of crowds but I hope the one-day set-up does the same.

One for 49 only begins to tell the tale of his contribution, which included a string of waspish bouncers, regular flirtation with the 90mph mark and the tone-setting dismissal of David Warner, caught at slip off a ball that thudded into the shoulder of the bat. Australia 199 for 4 after 36 overs. "Some innings you hit them straight to fielders, some innings you don't".

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at how people reacted to Roy's brutal innings. "Now and again, someone, I wouldn't say gets it, but knows where I am coming from". "It's by no stretch of the imagination impossible for us". Roy successfully referred it after conferring with Root, and had his ears stung by a liberal offering of unsolicited advice from the Australian fielders.

"On 170 I tried to hit one over mid-off and Root turned round and said, 'What are you doing?"

Despite the crushing defeat, Smith was not particularly crestfallen knowing it took a record breaking knock from Jason Roy for England to chase down 305.

32 - Balls for Roy's 50, the quickest in ODIs for an England batsman against Australia. He notched his ton in 92 balls, which was the joint second-fastest century by an English batsman against Australia after Eoin Morgan's ton off 85 balls at Southampton in 2010.
