Ashes: England skipper Joe Root vows to reclaim urn

Ashes: England skipper Joe Root vows to reclaim urn

After a humbling 4-0 defeat in the Tests to relinquish the Ashes, Bayliss has come under fire for the manner in which England were unable to land a telling blow on the hosts.

The records quickly tumbled for Roy - the highest score against Australia in ODIs, the biggest at the MCG and then the best for England, surpassing Hales' 171 against Pakistan in 2016.

After his career-best knock, Roy said that the innings was extra special since it was at the historic MCG.

The opener returned to the side in September when Hales was out of the side following the incident outside a Bristol nightclub over which Ben Stokes was arrested.

Ford will invest $11bn in electric vehicles by 2022
Of the 40 EVs planned for Ford's global line-up, 16 will be fully electric and the rest will be plug-in hybrids. General Motors, Toyota and Volkswagen have already outlined ambitious plans to offer more electric vehicles.


Australian opener Aaron Finch has scored his ninth one-day worldwide century to leave England chasing a target of 305 in Sunday's series-opener at the MCG. More importantly, England needed only 17 more runs to win.

Root will be Eoin Morgan's No 2 for the next five one-day internationals with fire replacing sickness in his belly, especially as far some England players are concerned.

"Everyone does everything they can to play for Australia or England".

Preview: England Test captain Joe Root is expected to be fit for Sunday's one-day series opener against Australia in Melbourne as he continues to recover from the illness that saw him treated in hospital during the fifth Ashes Test.

Real Madrid slump to second La Liga loss in three games
Furthermore, our referenced source is also reporting that Zidane can remain in the Real Madrid hot-seat for as long as he wants. Predecessor Rafa Benitez was sacked nearly exactly two years ago after taking 37 points from 18 La Liga games.


The frenetic scoring rate subsided after Roy's half-century and England went exactly 10 overs without a boundary. There's not many words right now but I'm sure in the next couple of days I'll have a bit more.

Steve Smith joined Aaron Finch at the crease at the fall of the Warner wicket and just as the pair started to build a solid partnership, Adil Rashid struck to remove Smith for 23. It was a huge honour to be out there for England again and get a few runs on the board after a tough season previous year. It sums up the character of the bloke, coming back in.

Joe Root - 9/10 - Relieved of his captain duties for the ODI series, Root showed great maturity with an incredibly measured 91* not out. Roy saidthe tourists would "absolutely not" rest players during the series. That's something we've built on and got a good foundation now.

The second ODI is set to be played in Brisbane on January 19 and the home team has enough time to bounce back in the series.

IND vs SA: AB de Villiers, Elgar keep Proteas in hunt
Read: Here's why all of Tendulkar's records could be broken! Kohli continued from where he left on Sunday's unbeaten knock of 85. India started off their reply nicely with openers Murali Vijay (46, 126b, 6×4) and KL Rahul (10) making a 28-run opening stand.


England's Mark Wood provided pace to their bowling attack in the first ODI. More importantly, the wickets that we've played on, we've adapted to them.
