Australia won the toss for a match that is going to mean everything to them right now. And they opted to bowl first in a crucial match. If they do lose this match at Trent Bridge then they will have lost five ODI series in succession. They have already slipped to the sixth position in ICC’s ODI Team Rankings. And they look right on the track for losing the series as England Breaks ODI Record In Stunning Fashion:
England had been off to a flying start with Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow taking full advantage of the short boundaries. They crossed the 100-run mark in just 13 overs. And after Roy was run-out at the score of 159, things only got worse with Alex Hales coming out to create the perfect storm.
With the help of Hales, Bairstow, and Eoin Morgan- England thrashed Australia for 21 sixes and 41 fours on their way to breaking history at the very same ground they made it on. Back in August 2018, England had posted the then-highest total of 444 for 3 on this very ground. You can check out the scorecard right now.
