first_imgAustralia captain Tim Paine said the 242-run defeat to England in the third ODI at Trent Bridge was his toughest day at the office and left him with a headache.England blazed their way to 481, the highest ODI total in men’s cricket. Australia, in response, were bowled out for 239 and suffered their heaviest defeat in history.Australia, the reigning world champions, have now won only two of their last 16 ODIs. They conceded 21 sixes against England Tuesday night – no Australian side has ever conceded more.Naturally, Paine, standing in for Steve Smith, who was banned over the ball-tampering scandal, was distraught. At one point, it looked like England would become the first team in history to score 500 in the 50-over format.”It was tough,” Paine said at the post-match press conference. “I thought I had some headaches last game after about the 25th over when I got hit in the head but I had a few more out there today to be honest.”England thrash Australia after posting ODI record total of 481Paine, who took charge in South Africa after the infamous Cape Town Test, said it was the hardest day of cricket he has had to endure.”I’ve just said in the changing rooms, I’ve been playing cricket since I was a kid and that’s the hardest day’s cricket I’ve ever had in my life.”Everything we tried didn’t work and everything they tried came off. Normally that happens for an hour or two and you get a couple of wickets but it happened for as long as it did.advertisement”You’ve got to take your hat off. They struck the ball as well as I’ve ever seen.”Just woke up and saw the score in England. What the hell happened over there & what is going on boys ? Gulp…..Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) June 19, 2018Australia coach Justin Langer, meanwhile, said it was a shock and he has never seen anything like that before: “It’s a shock. That is literally England at its best. It’s no fluke that they are No.1 in the world.”I’ve never seen nothing like that today. I was in Johannesburg when Australia got 400 (434 for 4) and South Africa then got it, but that was just brutal. Hopefully our young guys can learn from it. It doesn’t get harder than that.”It was a remarkable day of shot-making by England’s batsmen though as they carved an ODI record 62 boundaries, including 21 sixes. The only disappointment was that they failed to go beyond the 500-run barrier after some late wickets fell.Remarkably England failed to strike a boundary in the last four overs – although the damage to the Australian morale was already done.Australia were never in the hunt once opener D’Arcy Short chipped a catch to Moeen Ali off the bowling of David Willey in the fourth over and Moeen removed Travis Head and Shaun Marsh.Adil Rashid ended with four wickets as Australia were bowled out in 37 overs for 239 – handing England their biggest ever winning margin in ODIs and Australia’s heaviest defeat.(With Reuters inputs)last_img read more
