England smashed a world record-breaking 444-3 against Pakistan in their third one-day international on Tuesday, after opening batsman Alex Hales hit England’s highest individual ODI score with 171.

That surpassed the previous record of 443 for nine by Sri Lanka against the Netherlands at Amstelveen in 2006.

Jos Buttler (90), Joe Root (85) and captain Eoin Morgan (57) added to the misery of Pakistan’s bowlers with their knocks. Wahab Riaz was Pakistan’s most expensive bowler, conceding 110 runs in his 10 overs without picking up a wicket. Riaz was hit for 12 fours and four sixes.

Naturally, the world-record innings set Twitter alight. Here are some of the tweets:
