The opening batsman smashed his fourth fifty in CWC 19. He also went past the 400-run mark for England in the ongoing World Cup (426) in just six innings.
Roy and Jonny Bairstow (34) stitched a brisk 124-run stand for the opening wicket. The two batsmen scripted their fourth successive century-plus stand in CWC 19. This was their 11th career century-plus stand in ODIs. The two have amassed 2,310 partnership runs as a pair in ODI cricket.

Joe Root now has 12 catches in an ODI World Cup edition. He went past Ricky Ponting's tally of 11 in 2003 edition. Roy and Bairstow became the first pair with four century-plus stands in an edition of the ODI World Cup.
Aussies were under pressure from the start. England pacers Chris Woakes (3/20) and Jofra Archer (2/32) were terrific. Smith and Carey brought stability for Australia after they were reeling at 14/3. Adil Rashid (3/54) showed his class in the middle overs. Smith battled on, but England were on top. In reply, the hosts got off to a flier and won the game.
