Twitter hails England after their record-breaking performance


England set a new world record of highest total in a One-Day International match, as the hosts put a mighty total of 444 against Pakistan in the third ODI match at Nottingham. The previous record was held by Sri Lanka who had scored 443 against Netherlands at Amstelveen in July 2006. It was an absolute carnage as England batsmen, specially Alex Hales, showed no mercy towards Pakistan’s bowling attack and entertained the fans in the stadium and all around the world with a spectacular hitting masterclass.

Alex Hales became the highest scorer for England in ODIs with 171 from 122 balls with 22 fours and four sixes. Hales broke a 23-year-old-record held by Robin Smith against Australia, who remained unbeaten after scoring 167 in 1993.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to England’s record-breaking performance.
