Australia v. England

Australia v England ODI Series 2014

Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne: Sunday 12 January 2014 14:20 (day 1 of 1)

Toss: England won the toss and elected to bat.

Result: Australia win by 6 wickets

Australia 1st innings

End of Over 46 (4 runs)
Bowler: Tim Bresnan
Australia: 270-4 (rr 5.87)

45.4
Two Runs
Bresnan to Maxwell. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, in the air under control to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Root. Australia ease home with 26 balls remaining.

It may be a different format but it is the same story as in the Test series. Australia outplayed England in all three disciplines. England's total of 269 was probably 20 or 30 runs shy of par on this surface but it was their performance in the field that was most disappointing. They consistently bowled too short with Bresnan and Rankin looking short of pace and confidence. Their ground fielding was poor at times and the drop of Finch by Ballance proved very costly.

All that said Australia batted superbly with Finch and Warner playing with a positive intent and no lack of talent.

England will go to Canberra on Tuesday for a tour match before heading up to Brisbane and the second ODI next Sunday.

Australia have ridden their luck but they have shown intent that wasn't present in the early stages of England's innings. After a promising start all of the seamers have fallen into the trap of going to short and now the Australian openers are sitting back and waiting to hit off the back foot.

APPEAL! Stokes to Warner. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot Late Cut, outside edge to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Buttler, appeal made for Caught. Warner edges behind and as he is walking off as the umpires go upstairs to confirm the ball carried. It appears to be a classic example of where the ball bounces off the finger tips up into the gloves but as tends to be the case with such catches the third umpire rules in favour of the batsman.

49.6
One Run
Coulter-Nile to Buttler. Half volley, to leg backing away Slog, bottom edge to leg gully for 1 run, fielded by Haddin. Having got off to a slow start England will be reasonably happy with that total. The partnership between Ballance and Morgan was key in allowing the tourists to rebuild and set a platform for some late order hitting from Buttler and Bresnan.

Whilst 270 is more than Australia will have hoped to be chasing when England were limping along at 28-2 after the first 10 overs, they will feel that if they get off to a good start it is well within their reach.

Start of Innings
Start of England Innings. Hello and welcome to the 1st ODI from the MCG. The most coveted prize for which these two teams compete may be in Australia's possession for the next 18 months at least, but the one-day leg of this tour still holds great importance for both sides. For Australia it offers an opportunity for them to transfer their good form from the five day game into the shorter formats and to punish further their fiercest enemy. England, on the other hand, must begin the process of putting the 5-0 Ashes whitewash behind them. With the Cricket World Cup taking part on these shores in little over a year, these teams will be looking to establish a winning formula that may take then to global success in 2015.

News from the middle is that England have won the toss and will bat. England have elected not to play a frontline spinner with Boyd Rankin, Chris Jordan, Tim Bresnan and Ben Stokes being the four main seamers. Australia on the other hand play left arm spinner Xavier Doherty who will supplement the pace attack of Clint McKay, Nathan Coulter-Nile and James Faulkner.
