Australia v England: Tourists will be 'ruthless' in ODI series - Jason Roy

  • David Warner was down with illness for a couple of days

Roy's 180 is now the highest score by an England batsman in ODIs.

If it were not for a lack of credible alternatives at the top of the order - Haseeb Hameed has not done enough to return yet - then Stoneman would be under threat too but he will nearly certainly get another chance in New Zealand. Australia are fresh off a dominating 4-0 performance in the 2017 Ashes.

Roy made an astonishing start to his innings, going on the offensive against frontline quicks Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins to bring up his fifty off just 32 balls. "It's a good start to the series but it's by no means finished, we want to be as ruthless as possible".

"I guess if you do that, perhaps you're going to have days where you get bowled out for not many but you back your players to come off maybe more often than not and get those big totals", Smith said. Coming back in, we all knew that at some stage he would be part of our plans. "We'll recover as best as we can and get stuck into it".

The five-game one-day series against England will be the ultimate proving ground. David Warner appears on this list twice, with scores of 179 and 178 against Pakistan and Afghanistan respectively. When Travis Head was out for 5 to the last ball of the 14th over, Australia were in trouble at 78-3. His ability to pounce on anything wayward from the Australian bowlers early on, whilst adapting his game in the middle overs to rotate the strike with Joe Root made for a truly memorable innings for the opener.

This score registered by Alex Hales is now also the 5th highest Individual score in successful chases. "They got off to an absolute flyer", Smith said. "It's by no stretch of the imagination impossible for us".

Steve Smith - 5/10 - An uncharacteristically quiet game for Smith, making just 23 with the bat, and struggling to effectively nullify Roy with his field placements. "Then I heard them cheering and saying a few things and I was like "you're kidding me" and then looked at Rooty and was like "come on mate, surely it's outside the line" and he's like 'yeah outside the line 100%'". We weren't able to do that, and we didn't start as well as we'd like with the ball either, they got off to a flying start.

"Incredible from Jason. He's quite imposing as a batsman", Morgan said.

This included a national average audience of 1.79 million in England's run chase, including 1.22 million metro, and 1.52 million in Australia's innings, with 1.04 million metro.
