Back in 2015, the England team wasn’t a force in the limited-overs format by any means. They were knocked out by Bangladesh in the group stage of the 2015 World Cup following which they were recipients of a fair amount of brickbats. However, the face of their cricket has altered drastically since. The likes of Jason Roy, Alex Hales, and Johnny Bairstow have turned the tables.

The team is currently number ranked in ODIs owing to the domination they have shown over the last three years. The Brits are currently playing a five-match ODI series versus Australia and they have been stupendous, to say the least. Eoin Morgan and his boys have decimated the visitors and have already racked up an unassailable lead of 3-0 in the series.

England’s batsman unfolds mayhem

In the last match at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham, they went on a rampage and amassed the highest score of 481 runs. Coincidentally, in August 2016, they scored 444 runs versus Pakistan and yesterday Morgan’s boys broke their own record against a hapless-looking Tim Paine’s men. The hosts also raced away to their most comprehensive win by a margin of runs (242) in ODIs.

Bairstow and Hales were the two centurions. Hales played in front of his home crowd and didn’t disappoint them by any means. He plundered 147 runs in double quick time and guided his team past the record. Meanwhile, Siddarth Kaul, the Indian fast-bowler, wondered about the breakfast Hales and his teammate had prior to the match.

He took to Twitter and asked the English batsman about the same. The pacer also lauded the English team for their jaw-dropping show.

He wrote “Hello brother @AlexHales1. What did you and the rest of your team had for breakfast this morning? Brilliant, Surreal, Superb hitting. Scoring almost half a thousand runs in ODI cricket against any bowling attack and on any ground is no mean task. #ENGvAUS”
