England's Jason Roy glad to be back on track after 'tough' 2017

Returning Hales and skipper Morgan help England to tour victory

Australian opening batsmen Aaron Finch scored his 9 century in ODI and also crossed 3000 ODI runs landmark.

Root was hospitalised on the final morning of the fifth Ashes Test in Sydney with gastroenteritis but England ODI skipper Eoin Morgan said he would play in the series opener in Melbourne. His thumping knock included 16 fours and five sixes. Australia are fresh off a dominating 4-0 performance in the 2017 Ashes.

But Roy and Joe Root produced a stunning stand of 221 - England's highest ever for the third wicket in ODIs.

Roy said after the game on Sunday: "Incredibly special, I don't have too many words right now".

In the space of 151 balls he carved his way to the highest individual total by an England batsman in white-ball cricket, trumping Alex Hales' 2016 place-holder by nine runs, and led the team in successful pursuit of the home side's 304-8.

Bayliss, however, deserves credit for what he has achieved, with England's one-day side unrecognisable from the ragtag outfit that so disappointed at the 2015 World Cup in Australasia. That gave a chance to the previously sidelined Jason Roy, who closed out the series with scores of 84 and 96 alongside the prolific Jonny Bairstow.

Finch played against type for most his innings, striking 10 fours to go with three maximums but also showing admirable restraint before eventually holing out to Moeen.

Marcus Stoinis gave the hosts some late impetus with a rapid 60, but Roy began to reclaim the momentum for his side with some dashing strokeplay to kick-off the chase.

Limited-overs captain Morgan praised Bayliss' impact as England looks to restore pride in a five-match one-day worldwide series against Australia and build towards next year's Cricket World Cup. "I was so happy, first time here, what an incredible place". It had been a tough season last season, so to be selected was incredibly special. Hopefully that was just a little blip.

"I thought it was incredible from Jason - when he scores runs he is quite imposing at the crease and I thought that was no different today". It shows the character of the bloke. Roy saidthe tourists would "absolutely not" rest players during the series. "You got to be smart and adaptable to the conditions and try to play the type of cricket we normally play", he said.

"We tried everything we could to pull them back and take wickets but it wasn't our night".

"But then I heard them cheering and saying a few things. they started going on about me and if I was actually playing a shot and all this sort of stuff".
