Travis Head and David Warner have powered Australia to a record 221-run smashing of England, securing a 3-0 ODI whitewash of the dual white-ball world champions.

Australia’s prolific pair added 269 for the opening wicket, the second-highest partnership in the nation’s ODI history, as they smashed a tired and sorry England in front of just 10,406 fans at the MCG on Tuesday.

The winning margin in the third and final game was Australia’s biggest over England in ODIs, eclipsing the mark set in the second tri-series final of 1999.

Warner and Head’s centuries helped Australia post 5-355, the highest ODI total at the MCG, after England captain Jos Buttler won the toss and elected to field.

Head hit 152 from 130 balls to bring up his third ODI ton and highest score in the format, making England pay for dropping him when he was on just four.

The South Australian left-hander also successfully reviewed an LBW decision after being given out in just the third over.

Warner finally ended an international century drought spanning 1040 days, dating back to January 2020, blasting 106 for his 19th ODI hundred.
