England were thrashed 4-0 in the five-Test Ashes series by Australia but have had better results in the 50-over format. When he was at Surrey Kumar Sangakkara said Roy could "easily" play Test cricket and "he has got more ability than I have and a much greater repertoire of shots, definitely".

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.

Roy coasted to a fourth England century and overtook his previous best ODI knock, the 162 he hit against Sri Lanka at The Oval two years ago, having successfully overturned an lbw dismissal on 91 with Adam Zampa's ball shown to have struck him outside the line of off-stump. "Another team score of over 400 like we saw against Pakistan at Trent Bridge in 2016".

England won the toss and chose to bowl against Australia in opening one-day worldwide at Melbourne. "But it's one win, four more games to go", cricbuzz quoted him saying.

Many Democrats and some Republicans have said they won't vote for the money bill unless it includes a solution for the Dreamers. The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel, ' Graham said in a statement Saturday.

After the fall of Roy's wicket, Root played sensibly but skipper Eoin Morgan (1) and Jos Buttler (4) failed to make their mark at the other end.

The answer, of course, is that they are two different formats - a Test match is played over five days, a one-day global over 100 overs - but it highlighted England's split personality.

Jason Roy's 221-run stand with Joe Root was an England record for the third-wicket, eclipsing Neil Fairbrother and Graeme Hick who shared a 213-run stand against West Indies in 1991.

Smiles are now back on English faces as they travel to Brisbane on Monday for Friday's second ODI at the Gabba. But a late flurry of wickets gave England the initiative, and white ball specialist Roy did the rest.

"We're looking to go big in this series", Roy told Test Match Special.

"What a way to start the series". He chanced his arm and it came off and he was supported really well by Joe Root.

"I think we probably left ourselves a bit short, we had a good opportunity at 3 for 196 with 14 overs to go and then we lost two wickets, the two set batters, pretty quickly", Smith said. "You got to be smart and adaptable to the conditions and try to play the type of cricket we normally play", he said.
