Finch ton helps Australia to big total in 1st England ODI

Morgan however doesn't believe Smith will have a similar effect on Sunday

Roy, who celebrated his century with a leap in the air, reached fifty in 32 balls and gave England a rollicking start in their chase with an opening stand of 53 with Jonny Bairstow in under five overs.

Roy said: "To be at the MCG and get a score like that in the first game of the series incredibly special - it's an absolute honour to be honest".

Roy's 180-run knock is not just his ODI-best but also is the highest score by an England batsman in ODI cricket. "Incredibly special, I don't have too many words right now".

The successful chase was also a record for a one-day worldwide at the MCG, eclipsing Australia's 297 for four against England in 2011, and vindicated captain Eoin Morgan's decision to bowl first.

"If we got 340, 350 that's what we were after".

"We've got to sort out our one-day cricket, it hasn't been as good as we would have liked over the past 12-18 months".

Huawei's AT&T deal may have failed due to political pressure
The Mate 10 Pro could have been the first flagship device from the company to be available through network operators in the US. It's said that Huawei was planning to announce the news Tuesday, aka tomorrow, but now the company's deal with AT&T is no more.

"[His innings against Australia] is on the back of a tough summer but he finished it incredibly well", Morgan said. "We've done that and there are a lot more smiles around the place now".

But Hales' misadventure alongside Ben Stokes one September night in Bristol unexpectedly re-opened the door for Roy. "It kind of gave me a bit of a kick to recognise where I'm at, where my preparation is and start building up a platform to get ready for internationals". I didn't go out there thinking I'm going to go all guns blazing, I went out there and started as I've started every other net session since I've been in Australia, trying to play the ball late, playing strong shots and all these cliches, but it was just a case of finding the gaps. He came into this match after a hard Big Bash and was sweating on his place again but England stuck by him and he repaid them with 180, beating by nine Hales's record highest ODI innings. "Some innings you hit them straight to fielders, some innings you don't".

There was a scare for Roy on 91 when he was given out lbw to Adam Zampa, but the decision was overturned on review and the next ball just about cleared long-on for a maximum before Roy reached three figures by taking three off Tye.

As a result, England were able to comfortably surpass Australia's total of 304-8 and pull off the biggest successful chase in Melbourne.

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.
