England stormed to a one-day international world record of 481 for six as they thrashed Australia by 242 runs at Trent Bridge to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series on Tuesday.


Jonny Bairstow's swashbuckling 139 and a magnificent 147 by Alex Hales took England past the total of 444 for three they made against Pakistan, also at Trent Bridge, two years ago.

Captain Eoin Morgan joined in the fun as he struck a 21-ball half century -- the fastest by an England batsman in ODIs -- to become his country's leading one-day run scorer.

Australia never really challenged with the bat, as they were bowled out for 239 in 37 overs, with spinners Adil Rashid (4-47) and Moeen Ali (3-28) doing the damage with the ball.

Travis Head was the only Australian batsman to get past the 50-run mark as he top scored with a quickfire 51, while Marcus Stoinis stroked 44 in a disappointing batting effort by the visitors.

It looked as though England would go past the 500-run barrier before a few late wickets caused the run flow to dry up slightly.
