  • Alex Hales has helped England's one-day squad to a win in his first appearance after a suspension

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.

His fourth ODI hundred contained 16 boundaries and five sixes and gave him two of the four biggest ODI innings ever for England before he eventually skied a catch into the outfield from Mitchell Starc's bowling when England was 24 runs from victory.

Jason Roy was nearly lost for words after his record-breaking innings helped England draw a line under their Ashes woes by beating Australia in the one-day worldwide series opener at the MCG.

England started their innings in lightning fashion before the loss of Jonny Bairstow and Hales in quick succession preceded a match-defining 221-run stand between Roy and Root.

The last week of 2017 saw a sharp increase in cases of influenza in the United States, with 46 states reporting widespread flu . "If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, it's important to see a doctor as soon as possible", said Dr.

Set an imposing 305 to win on Sunday, the visitors chased down their target with seven balls to spare after Roy belted the highest ODI score by an England batsman.

As the action between Australia and England shifted from Tests to limited-overs, the touring party saw a reversal in their fortunes and finally managed to end their win drought Down Under.

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.

Robert Whittaker injured; Romero vs. Rockhold now headlines UFC 221
Romero (12-2) hasn't competed since his loss to Whittaker and had been preparing for a February 24 fight against David Branch . This fight at UFC 221 will be the second interim title in that division in the past year .

Marcus Stoinis (60 off 40) and Mitchell Marsh (50 off 68) played fine support roles after David Warner (2) and Steve Smith (23) fell cheaply - Warner out to a venomous short ball from Mark Wood (1-49) in the second over and Smith snicking Adil Rashid (2-73) behind in the 11th.

"It is extremely special, especially after the Test series which was quite tough and we knew the boys would be a bit down". Hopefully that was just a little blip. It shows the character of the bloke.

For what it is worth too, I stand by my initial belief that England should not have appointed Bayliss in the first place and that they made a decision to recruit the wrong Australian. Roy saidthe tourists would "absolutely not" rest players during the series. Joe Root's conversion rates were questioned in the midst of several other issues with the English side.

"We then didn't start well with the ball, they got off to an absolute flyer". I think cricket tests you and you start questioning yourself and start questioning your preparation and how you're playing the ball and all this sort of rubbish, and it was just a case of clearing my head.
