When his wicket dismissed then the damage was done and then it was 42.3 short, pulled, top-edged, gone! The end of a triumphant inning from Roy, the MCG rises as one to a brilliant performance. A bit of a tired ending went for the big Humpty over the leg side but ended up with a lobbed chance to backward square. But what a statement innings from a resurgent one-day team! 281/3. JM Bairstow contributed 14 runs and out, JE Root scored 91 runs not out.
