An England record opening partnership of 256 between Alex Hales and Jason Roy led their side to a crushing 10-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the second one-day international in Birmingham on Friday.

Hales scored 133 not out and Roy an unbeaten 112 in England’s highest first-wicket partnership in one-day cricket and they overhauled Sri Lanka’s 254 for seven with more than 15 overs to spare.

England lead the five-match series 1-0 after the first match in Nottingham was tied. The third match of the five-game series is in Bristol on Sunday.
