Ton-up Roy happy to 'knuckle down' for England

England is leading the five-match series by 2-0 and will look to seal the deal while facing Australia in the third ODI on June 19.

Buttler stepped in successfully at the last minute to deputise for Eoin Morgan after a back spasm ruled England's white-ball captain out of the second one-day worldwide in Cardiff on Saturday. Roy's latest century came nearly a year after he suffered arguably the biggest disappointment of his England career when left out of the same Sophia Gardens ground for a Champions Trophy semi-final loss to Pakistan, the eventual tournament winners.

This defeat was Australia's seventh in eight ODIs but the form of Marsh was some consolation.

And Maxwell was particularly heartened by their bowling display at The Oval ahead of Saturday's second ODI in Cardiff.

However, Plunkett and spinner Adil Rashid (3-70) excelled in the final over to dismiss Marsh and run through the Australia tail. Their batting line up after Steve Smith and David Warner's a year ban is a concern. Easy to say that after the game, but the total of 342 was quite intimidating on (quite literally) a sticky wicket in Cardiff - all thanks to Roy's 120 and Buttler's fireworks towards the end. "I wouldn't say being dropped in that Champions Trophy has anything to do with making any hundred feel any better than the next. I'm just very happy for the win". "It was a big aim of mine to come back after a long winter and start well". "We'll have to be better in a few days' time", he added.

Brooks Koepka wins the US Open golf title
After all, he was the lone survivor of Saturday's chaos, posting the best score of any player to tee off after noon at 1-over. Meanwhile, there were eight rounds of 80 or higher, including Rickie Fowler with an 84 and Phil Mickelson at 81. 2, 3 and 4.

With the Socceroos having been beaten by France at the World Cup and the Wallabies losing on home soil to Ireland, the nation's cricketers could not lift spirits by levelling up the five-match series.

"Obviously we would have liked to have restricted England to less than 340-odd but the way Marsh played throughout our innings showed we could have chased them if we'd had someone to go with him before Agar", said Australia captain Tim Paine.

Shaun Marsh (131 off 116) struck a fine century for Australia in reply, and would have had England anxious when still at the crease with 53 runs required and five overs to go, but the visitors ultimately fell short, bowled out for 304.

Rain breaks when he was 66 not out and unbeaten on 91 failed to disturb Roy, who drove Marcus Stoinis and pulled Andrew Tye for sixes during a 97-ball century that also included nine fours.

Early dismissal is an occupational hazard for all openers, and certainly for someone as attack-minded as Roy. But next ball he was out when Tye took the edge and Paine held a superb one-handed catch as he dived to his left.
