Beating the second best South Africa – 439/2 in 2015:
It was likewise the most elevated ODI absolute in a match between two Test countries, beating South Africa’s 439/2 which happened in 2015 against the WI at Johannesburg.

I was confident heading into this but it’s been a tough few weeks, it’s pleasing to have won the series after three games but we want to be ruthless and win it five-nil.

I think it was an exceptional innings from Alex Hales and Jos Buttler. On a wicket like this you really need to support the bowlers and that didn’t happen.
