Roy blasts England to ODI win over Australia

  • England limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan will lead his side out against Australia on Sunday

Jason Roy was nearly lost for words after his record-breaking innings helped England draw a line under their Ashes woes by beating Australia in the one-day global series opener at the MCG.

Finch reached his 50 from 65 balls, including seven fours, and immediately celebrated with a six from the bowling of leg-spinner Adil Rashid.

The home side set England a target of 305 in the first of five One Day Internationals, a modest target made to seem all the more average by Roy's marvellous century.

Roy and Joe Root took over from that point as they forged a 221-run partnership to leave England within touching distance of victory.

David Warner's early exit to a vicious rising ball, and several other deliveries that tested the reflexes of Steven Smith and Aaron Finch, showed that the England ODI team were going to go after the hosts.

Starc had Jonny Bairstow (14) caught behind in the fifth over and Alex Hales (4) fell to Cummins soon after but by then, England had already piled on 60 runs at 10 an over.

Mark Wood and spinners Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid had impressed with the ball earlier in the day, the former operating at a brisk pace on his return to global action.

Hales, who was playing in his first worldwide match since September 2017, only made four runs before being caught by Stoinis at short midwicket off the bowling of Cummins.

Roy sailed past his hundred during the incredible stand, while Root brought up his fifty.

A slower ball bouncer from Starc eventually saw Roy dismissed but it did little to delay the England victory - despite Eoin Morgan being dismissed for just one and Joe Buttler for four - with Moeen Ali [5 not out] hitting the winning runs to complete a comfortable win.

"We're looking to go big in this series", Roy told Test Match Special.

"He didn't give us a chance, and he chanced his arm", Smith said. "They got off to an absolute flyer and we couldn't pull them back". I had a tough year in 2017, being dropped from the side gave me a bit of a kick, recognised where I am at and where my preparation is and how to start getting ready for internationals.

After his career-best knock, Roy said that the innings was extra special since it was at the historic MCG. "It was one of the first things the boys said, about Halesy being pretty. err. disappointed!"

"[His innings against Australia] is on the back of a tough summer but he finished it incredibly well", Morgan said.
