England stormed to a one-day global 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.

Paine used eight bowlers in an effort to stem the tide of runs, with Alex Hales (147), Jonny Bairstow (129) and Jason Roy (82) setting the platform a mammoth total at the ground where the Test side were bowled out for 60 before lunch on their last visit three years ago.

Justin Langer described Australia's record loss to England as "brutal" and "a shock" and said his players could not have had a worse day as they slumped to a third straight loss, handing the five-match ODI series to England. Surrey had hammered the gargantuan total against Gloucestershire at The Oval during the 2007 Friends Provident Trophy. They conceded 21 sixes against England Tuesday night - no Australian side has ever conceded more. They smashed their own previous record of 444 (against Pakistan at the same venue in 2016) and comfortably registered the highest ODI total of all time.

By contrast, this was England's biggest victory in the format, topping their 210-run win against New Zealand at Edgbaston in 2015. Despite losing Bairstow, heaving down the throat of deep midwicket, and Jos Buttler, deceived by a slower ball, Morgan thrashed a 21-ball half-century.

Australia could only make 239 all out, lasting just 37 overs. Over the past four years, England team not only came over their embarrassing ODI World Cup performance but also managed to become an elite ODI team. On the sort of pitch that most batsmen would like to whisk to Paris for the weekend - and most bowlers would like to never see again - England gorged and feasted on runs until they dripped down their chins.

It seemed inevitable England would reach 500 but Hales and Morgan went in successive balls late on as Richardson got some belated reward and the run rate finally dropped. Off-spinner Moeen Ali took 3/28. "I know they are a really inexperienced attack and we just kept talking about what we could do and what we said we would do and trying to keep it calm and simple", Paine added.

"We've got to bat against the top and against spin", said Langer.
