Jason Roy's record-breaking knock vs Australia gives England series lead

14 January 2018

England: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (capt), Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood. But it's one win, four more games to go. The Big bash has been a great success and draws plenty of crowds but I hope the one-day set-up does the same.

There was some chat about the depth of Australia's pace-bowling resources during the Test series (Jackson Bird's outing on the terrible MCG surface was the only time it was put into action) and this series may give some indication how it stands with the white ball. It is extremely special, especially after the Test series.

"If a couple of batters just stayed for a little bit longer and we gave ourselves the chance to really go hard at the back end, we probably could have got up around 340 which is probably where we needed to be".

England captain Eoin Morgan said Roy's record-breaking century showed his "character" after he was dropped previous year. "I think the lads have been and will continue to be smarter, because it will not be tolerated any more from higher up. These things happen. You have to take them on the chin and move on".

Finding a long-term replacement should be the top of Everton's priorities for this month, not securing Walcott's signature. Former Spurs winger Aaron Lennon enjoyed an outstanding reception from the home crowd when replacing Yannick Bolasie.

"I've got 50 overs to bat and if I bat 50 overs on good pitches in Australia I'm going to get to a good score, and that was my mentality".

With Travis Head (5) also failing to fire, Marsh continued his strong summer after being picked ahead of Cameron White.

"You need an impact bowler and hopefully throughout the series they can produce impact spells".

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at how people reacted to Roy's brutal innings.

Prescott Group Capital Management L.L.C. holds 2.09% of its portfolio in Net 1 UEPS Technologies, Inc. for 1.05 million shares. Polar Securities Inc decreased Laboratory Corp Amer Hldgs (Call) (LH) stake by 42.92% reported in 2017Q3 SEC filing.

The coach has been criticised for overseeing just 15 victories in 38 Tests at the helm, but has proved far more successful in the shorter formats by guiding the team to the final of the World Twenty20 in 2016 and the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy semifinals.

He got a half-century in 32 balls, reached his first hundred off 92 balls, got to 150 in 126 balls, and then On 91, Roy had been given lbw against legspinner Adam Zampa, but chose to review the decision. Roy successfully referred it after conferring with Root, and had his ears stung by a liberal offering of unsolicited advice from the Australian fielders.

"They got off to an absolute flyer". I was counting down the minutes to when I could come off and have a break. Riding on Roy's masterclass England chased down 305 runs with 7 balls to spare. 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.

"Incredible from Jason. He's quite imposing as a batsman", Morgan said.
