Australia suffering from Ashes hangover: Mitchell Marsh after loss in 1st ODI

180! Remarkable Roy makes maximum impact as England cruise home at MCG

Liam Plunkett marked his first appearance on the tour by ending as the pick of the England bowlers with three for 71 but the control exerted by Moeen Ali and Mark Wood - who took the crucial wicket of David Warner in the second over - helped restrict Australia.

Roy's 180-run knock is not just his ODI-best but also is the highest score by an England batsman in ODI cricket.

Roy was left out by England for the Champions Trophy semi-final against Pakistan in Cardiff after scoring only 51 runs in eight innings and was only restored to the side when Alex Hales and Ben Stokes were suspended at the end of the season.

Adam Zampa thought he had the breakthrough when he had Roy given out lbw on 91, but the on field decision was overturned on review.

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old conceded that Australia have to come up with a plan to remove England opener Jason Roy early on after he walloped a career-best 180 in Melbourne. This is the most by an England batsman in ODIs.

Limited-overs skipper said: "Joe is good and should be fit to play tomorrow".

With the 2019 World Cup fast approaching, Marsh admitted that this is the ideal time for players like him and fellow all-rounder Marcus Stoinis to make their presence felt.

Roy scored 84 and 96 in two matches against the West Indies, meaning he kept his place at the top of the order for Sunday's series opener against Australia, with Hales returning at number three. But a late flurry of wickets gave England the initiative, and white ball specialist Roy did the rest. I don't really have too many words right now but it was just a huge honour to be out there for England again and get some runs on the board.

Set 305 to win, Roy and Jonny Bairstow imposed themselves straightaway on fiery Mitchell Starc and the Aussie attack.

England won the toss and chose to bowl against Australia in opening ODI at Melbourne.

Joe Root - 9/10 - Relieved of his captain duties for the ODI series, Root showed great maturity with an incredibly measured 91* not out.

England are scheduled to play five one-day internationals against Australia followed by a Twenty20 tri-series with the hosts and New Zealand which starts on 3 February. We have done that a bit with the bat, we will try and continue taking wickets with the ball. We've got today and tomorrow off. We weren't able to do that, and we didn't start as well as we'd like with the ball either, they got off to a flying start.
