On this day in 2016, England notched the then world-record total in ODI cricket after posting 444/3 against Pakistan in Nottingham.
Batting first, England rode on Alex Hales’ 171 and Jos Buttler’s brisk 90 off 51 to score the runs. Apart from Buttler, Joe Root and captain Eoin Morgan also struck individual half-centuries. Root scored 85 off 86 while Morgan hammered a 27-ball 57. For Pakistan, Hasan Ali scalped a couple of wickets after giving 74 runs in 10 overs while Mohammad Nawaz got one after giving 62 runs in his quota of 10.
In reply, Pakistan never got the start they required and lost wickets at regular intervals. Sharjeel Khan scored a half-century for his side. He was dismissed by Chris Woakes after 58 off 30.
The only positive that Pakistan took away from this game was a half-century from their number 11, Mohammad Amir. Amir struck a 28-ball 58 before Pakistan were bundled out for 275 to lose the match by 169 runs.
The record was broken by England after two years later after they hammered Australia for 481/6 at the same venue.
