Toss: Australia won the toss and elected to bat.

Result: Australia win by 13 runs

England 1st innings

End of Over 20 (24 runs)
Bowler: Josh Hazlewood
England: 200-9 (rr 10.00)

19.6
One Run
Hazlewood to Bopara. Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot flick, to deep mid wicket for 1 run. England reach 200 but it's not enough as Australia claim a 13 run victory. The tourists just lost wickets too frequently throughout the innings and were unable to build the necessary momentum to chase down the formidable total. Only Ravi Bopara was able to offer a meaningful contribution with a late flurry of sixes, but it was too little too late as Australia take a 1-0 lead in the 3 match series. The two sides meet again on Friday in Melbourne.
