The New Indian Express : Feb 28, 2019, 10:32 AM

Records continue to tumble in the ODI series between England and ODI. England broke that record in the fourth ODI as they plundered 24 sixes and posted 418/6 in 50 overs. The carnage was led by Jos Buttler, who hit his career-best ODI score of 150, which came off just 77 balls and included 12 sixes. That was good enough for joint-seventh most sixes in an innings by a batsman in ODIs.

Records continue to tumble in the ODI series between England and ODI. After West Indies broke the world record for most sixes in an ODI innings in the first game of the series, England broke that record in the fourth ODI as they plundered 24 sixes and posted 418/6 in 50 overs.

The carnage was led by Jos Buttler, who hit his career-best ODI score of 150, which came off just 77 balls and included 12 sixes. That was good enough for joint-seventh most sixes in an innings by a batsman in ODIs.

The opening pair of Jonny Bairstow and Alex Hales put on a century partnership inside 14 overs. While Bairstow hit four sixes, Hales hit two. Joe Root fell for just five but that brought Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler to the crease.
