It was absolute carnage at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on June 19, 2018, as England broke the record of the highest ODI score during the first innings of the third ODI. England scored 481 for 6, becoming the first team to surpass the 450 runs mark in an ODI inning.

Yesterday's win at Trent Bridge was England's biggest ever in ODIs, and Australia's biggest ever defeat. During this innings, England broke the record which was incidentally already held by them. The English side had scored 444 for 3 against Pakistan two years ago at this very venue.

Australia wins toss and decides to bowl first

Earlier in the day, Australian captain Tim Paine won the toss and elected to bowl first on a flat deck at Trent Bridge. Openers Jonny Bairstow (139 runs off 92 balls) and Jason Roy (82 runs off 61 balls) started with a flourish, building a partnership of 159 runs before the latter got run-out. Alex Hales (147 runs off 92 balls) came in next to build another 151 run stand before Jonny Bairstow lost his wicket.

Jos Buttler (11 runs off 12 balls) couldn't last long but captain Eoin Morgan came and smashed the fastest fifty by an Englishman off just 21 balls, ending with a score of 67 from 30 balls.

Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan got out on back-to-back deliveries, but the score was already 459 in 47.3 overs. England couldn't manage much in the last few overs, but they ended with the highest ODI score and the second highest list A cricket score of 481 for 6 in 50 overs, the BBC reported.

A miserable day for the Aussie players

As far as the Australian bowlers are concerned, it was a day that they would like to forget pretty soon. Each of the bowlers got hammered, even though the captain used eight bowlers against the Englishmen.

Andrew Tye got hit for 100 runs in nine overs, Times of India noted, while Billy Stanlake got hit for 74 runs in eight overs. Marcus Stoinis was smashed for 85 runs in eight overs, and Ashton Agar ended with the figures of 1-70 in ten overs. Jhye Richardson was the only who picked up three wickets, giving away 92 runs in his ten overs.

During their chase, Australia failed to get a proper partnership and lost wickets at regular intervals. The English spinners, Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali, tightened the screws by picking up four and three wickets respectively, as Australia ended with a score of 239 all out in 37 overs losing the match by 242 runs.

This was their biggest defeat and England's biggest victory in ODIs. With this victory, England also won the five-match ODI series by 3-0 with two matches still to go.

England will next meet Australia in the fourth ODI at Chester-le-Street in Durham on June 21, 2018.
