England have set a new record for the highest total ever scored in a men's one-day international game against Australia at the Trent Bridge cricket ground in Nottingham. 

Captain Eoin Morgan's men posted a new all-time ODI record of 481/6  en route to a 242-run victory over their arch-rivals to go an unbeatable 3-0 up in the five-match series.

Man-of-the-match Alex Hales top-scored with 147 on his home ground, just as he had done when making 171 in England's 444/3 — the previous ODI record total — against Pakistan at Trent Bridge two years ago.

Opening batsman Jonny Bairstow made 139 on Tuesday, his fourth hundred in six ODIs that included a century in a shock loss to Scotland just before this series.

This feat by the Three Lions has left Tweeple ecstatic.
