BY foxsports • August 30, 2016

NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) England smashed a world record-breaking 444-3 in an emphatic 169-run victory over Pakistan on Tuesday to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match one-day international series.

Opening batsman Alex Hales hit England's highest individual ODI score with 171 and Jos Buttler (90 not out) notched England's fastest ODI half century off only 22 balls.

Joe Root (85) and captain Eoin Morgan (57 not out) also joined England's run rampage at Trent Bridge against some sloppy Pakistan bowling and fielding, with Wahab Riaz (0-110) going for the second worst ever bowling figures in a limited-overs international .

Pakistan's run chase was soon in trouble, with Chris Woakes (4-41) mopping up the top order.

No. 11 batsman Mohammad Amir made a rapid 58 off 28 balls and opening batsman Sharjeel Khan also scored 58 to give the total some respectability before Pakistan was bowled out for 275 in 42.4 overs.
