While England's triumph in the land of Robin Hood was a satisfying result for the home fans, the Australians were an easy target for many to aim at, with the 242-run loss to leave bruises on the young players in Justin Langer's inexperienced squad.

England couldn't manage much in the last few overs, but they ended with the highest ODI score and the second highest list A cricket score of 481 for 6 in 50 overs, the BBC reported.

"Certainly a day for everyone in that changing room to be very proud of", England captain Eoin Morgan said. Alex Hales is known for hitting big scores at Trent Bridge and eased into the contest as soon as he walked from the crease.

Their 444-3 against Pakistan - last year's Champions Trophy winners - came just 12 months after they chased down 349-7 to beat New Zealand in 2015.

England's openers set a remarkable tempo, and Australia had no answer as Tim Paine deployed eight different bowlers in the first 24 overs - to no avail.

Australia captain Paine, took his hat off to England's performance, saying the hosts had been "red hot".

Once again it was spin that did the damage with Adil Rashid taking 4-47 and Moeen Ali 3-28.

The game of cricket was always defined by the battle between willow and cherry but off late, it has been more about the former and it won't be good for the game in the long run.

"Everything we tried didn't work, everything they tried came off. Normally that happens for an hour or two then you get a couple of wickets".

It was clear from the off that England were in the mood to quickly wrap up the series with two games to spare, Bairstow and Jason Roy (82) putting on 159 for the first wicket. The way they are playing is reminiscent of how we used to play in our day with Gilly, Matthew Hayden and Ricky Ponting at the top. In total, Morgan has scored 6187 runs, which also includes the runs that he scored for Ireland.

AJ Tye went wicketless for 100 runs from nine overs with Jhye Richardson the pick of the bowlers with unflattering figures of 3-92.

While England's fielding was tidy - Rashid and Moeen took a caught-and-bowled each and Bairstow effected a neat run-out - Australia were made to pay for their mistakes, in particular Marcus Stoinis' drop to reprieve Bairstow on 30.
