Just two days after the men's team broke the ODI record, England hit the highest ever T20 score in the women's game. Tammy Beaumont struck her third hundred in a row off just 47 deliveries. Incredibly, the record had been broken by New Zealand just hours before, as they made 216 on the same ground.

Adam Gilchrist in full flight was a joy to behold - unless you're bowling at him that is. Watch one of the all-time greats smash England's bowlers to all parts of the Oval back in 2005.

England recorded the highest ODI total in cricketing history, as they posted a quite outrageous 481-6 from their 50 overs. They had in fact set the previous record of 444-3 against Pakistan two years ago, passing that total by some distance. Bairstow and Hales struck 139 and 147 respectively, both taking only 92 balls to do so. Morgan then arrived to hit 50 off 22 balls, the fastest ever by an England player. Australia were unable to climb the steep mountain before them, falling to 239 all out and a 242-run defeat.

With T20 cricket very much in its infancy, Leicestershire Foxes were the early innovators. Adaptable batting line ups and unorthodox deliveries are par for the course nowadays, but the Foxes were one of the first to push the boundaries.

England recorded their highest ODI score against the Aussies in a highly entertaining encounter in Cardiff. Jason Roy struck his 5th ODI hundred to propell England up to a daunting 342-8, aided by 91 not out from stand-in skipper Jos Buttler. Australia made a strong fist of the chase thanks to Shaun Marsh’s 131, but fell 38 runs short of England’s total. The hosts now lead the series 2-0 after two matches.

156 runs. 63 balls. 14 sixes. Aaron Finch absolutely smashed the T20 record back in 2013. His innings remains the most anyone has ever scored in a T20 International. 14 sixes is also the most scored by anyone in an IT20 innings.

The first ODI of the 5-match series proved an edgy encounter, as England faced Australia at the Oval. The Aussies only mustered 214 in their innings which looks to be below par by all accounts. However England made heavy weather of their reply, creeping over the line with just 3 wickets left.

As Eoin Morgan prepares to take on Australia in the first ODI of the 5-match series tomorrow, rewind to his first ever century against the Aussies back in 2010.

Which of these is a real phrase: sticky dog or greasy pigeon? Stuart Broad put stars of Made In Chelsea & Love Island to the test with some funky cricket terminology.

England skipper Heather Knight discusses the challenges of following up the extraordinary success of last summer, when her side lifted the ICC Women’s World Cup. With South Africa and New Zealand visiting, there’s a lot of cricket for the England Women’s side to look forward to this time around.
