England smash new ODI batting record

June 21, 2018

England has broken the world record for a score in a One Day International.

The hosts scored 481-6 in 50 overs against Australia at Trent Bridge.

Alex Hales hit 147 and Jonny Bairstow 139 as England briefly threatened to post 500 in the third ODI.

Australia were bowled out for 239 in 37 overs as Adil Rashid took 4-47.

England’s win, which gave them an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series with two games to play, came only 11 days after New Zealand made the highest total in a women’s ODI – 490-4 against Ireland in Dublin.
