England posted the highest total ever scored in a men’s one-day international of 481 for six as they thrashed world champions Australia by 242 runs at Trent Bridge on Tuesday to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in a five-match series.

Alex Hales (147) and Jonny Bairstow (139) both hit hundreds as, for the second time in two years at Trent Bridge, England posted a new record ODI score following their 444 for three against Pakistan in 2016.

Bairstow’s hundred was his fourth in six ODIs while Hales’s century ended a run of low scores.

Meanwhile England captain Eoin Morgan became the country’s all-time leading run-scorer in this format.
