England win toss as Hales returns; Tye debuts for Australia

Set 305 to win, Roy's daring 180 helped England make 308 for five.

Steve Smith felt Australia paid the price for falling short with the bat after Jason Roy's magnificent 180 inspired England to victory in Sunday's first one-day worldwide.

He said: 'It's quite evident when he scores runs he's quite imposing at the crease and today was no different.

WITH the Ashes done and dusted Australia will turn their attention to the short format of the game in the opening one-day worldwide against England at the MCG.

England won the toss, bowled and held an early advantage when it dismissed key batsman David Warner (2) and Steve Smith (23) inside the first 11 overs.

Roy was given out lbw to Adam Zampa on 91 but immediately called for a review, and the decision was overturned after replays showed it was pitching outside the line.

Roy wasted little time making the most of that piece of fortune, driving the next ball just over a leaping Aaron Finch on the long-on boundary for six.

White-ball specialist Roy belted five sixes and 16 fours on his way to overtaking the record 171 scored by teammate Alex Hales against Pakistan at Trent Bridge in 2016.

Roy scored 84 and 96 in two matches against the West Indies, meaning he kept his place at the top of the order for Sunday's series opener against Australia, with Hales returning at number three. There's not many words right now but I'm sure in the next couple of days I'll have a bit more. "Halesy was pretty disappointed".

But Roy and Root remained in total control of the game, forcing Steve Smith to rotate between bowlers in search of a breakthrough.

"The middle order's probably where we've had a bit of an issue", Smith said. "They got off to an absolute flyer", Smith said.

Roy had a willing partner in Test captain Joe Root, who had been tormented all tour by the Australians and was in no mood to let a rare victory slip.

He and Test skipper Joe Root (91 not out) combined for a 221-run third-wicket partnership to restore some English pride after their 4-0 Ashes series defeat.

But burly opener Finch filled the void with a dashing hundred, his ninth in one-day internationals and fourth against England.

Earlier, Australian opener Aaron Finch had scored his ninth one-day global century to leave England chasing a target of 305.

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 worldwide action.
