Root was unbeaten on 91 at the end as England reached 308-5 in the 49th over, having joined Roy in the sixth over when England was 60-2.

Jason Roy compiled a sensational, record-breaking 180 to lead England to an emphatic five-wicket victory over Australia in the first one-day global at the MCG. "It's a good start to the series but it's by no means finished, we want to be as ruthless as possible". But he rode his luck to produce a record in limited-overs cricket for England and also a new benchmark for a batsman at the MCG in a one-day worldwide.

Finch reached his 50 from 65 balls, including seven fours, and immediately celebrated with a six from the bowling of leg-spinner Adil Rashid.

He survived a run-out scare and an lbw decision which was overturned upon review, and lofted several balls just out of the reach of frustrated Australian fielders on the way to his fifth ODI century.

With England taking the attack to Australia, the hosts finally stemmed the flow of runs and got a much-needed breakthrough when Mitchell Starc had Bairstow caught behind for 14.

Finch set the tone when he hit two of the first three balls he faced for four and struck the ball powerfully in making 107, smashing 10 fours and three sixes. His 151-ball innings was laced with 16 boundaries and five sixes.

Roy "played spectacularly well - chanced his arm and it came off".

"Incredibly special, I don't have too many words right now", he said. "It was one of the first things the boys said, about Halesy being pretty. err. disappointed!"

Australia captain Smith credited England, but felt Australia should have added more to its tally. That's something we've built on and got a good foundation now.

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 brilliant 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.

Aaron Finch earlier scored his ninth one-day worldwide century, combining with Mitch Marsh (50) for a 118-run partnership as the hosts reached 8-304 from their 50 overs.

Plunkett was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets, while Rashid snapped up two and Moeen, Wood and Woakes chipped in with one wicket apiece.
