How social media reacted to Jason Roy's record-breaking 180

(Alex) Hales was pretty disappointed (to lose his England ODI highest score).

"Incredibly special", Roy said. "Knowing our middle order is incredibly special and talented and can win games from anywhere".

England are now fourth in the one-day rankings - level on points with third-placed Australia and on the coat-tails of the top-two, South Africa and India - and are perfectly capable of achieving their dream of lifting the World Cup next year. Knowing each other's roles is important and everybody knows their own roles.

"We had that discussion a few days ago, I suggested to him that he shouldn't play, that he should have a break", Bayliss was quoted as saying by British media on Tuesday.

The five-match series presents England with a chance to test the limits of their carefree approach against the world champions before next year's home World Cup.

"That sounds quite brutal, but more than anything over the next year or so I'll have a really good indication of how I want us to play as a team".

"If we got 340, 350 that's what we were after. He said he'll be fine so I don't think there'll be any trouble there".

The frenetic scoring rate subsided after Roy's half-century and England went exactly 10 overs without a boundary.

The opener returned to the side in September when Hales was out of the side following the incident outside a Bristol nightclub over which Ben Stokes was arrested. It sums up the character of the bloke, coming back in. This is the most by an England batsman in ODIs. Lyon has taken 17 wickets from just 13 ODIs at an average of 34.82 but hasn't played in this format for Australia since mid-2016. Australia 199 for 4 after 36 overs.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at how people reacted to Roy's brutal innings. "It's by no stretch of the imagination impossible for us".

Jason Roy of England leaves the field.

"I kind of turned away because I did feel I might've been outside the line", Roy said. "Then they started going on about me if I'm actually playing a shot and all this sort of stuff and there was a bit of that, but I think that kind of switched me into another innings, got me motivated to go big and go long". Riding on Roy's masterclass England chased down 305 runs with 7 balls to spare.

Wood's opening burst was quicker and fierier than anything the Australian batsmen have faced this winter and must surely, and swiftly, have brought about the realisation that while England's Test side may have lacked the tools to compete in Australian conditions, the white-ball team have no such problems.
