Australia beat England by six wickets
- After winning the toss and bowling first, Australia comfortably chased down England score of 287/9 in the first ODI, ultimately winning by six wickets with three overs and one ball remaining.
- All of Australia’s top three batters successfully fired in Adelaide, openers David Warner (86) and Travis Head (69) putting on 147 for the first wicket, whilst Steve Smith struck an excellent unbeaten 80.
- England suffered through most of their batters gaining starts but only one going on to make a big score, whilst their bowling toiled against a quality Australian batting line-up, which led to their downfall in the first ODI.
- Dawid Malan responded brilliantly to being left out of the England team which won in the final of the 2022 T20 World Cup, by scoring 134, playing virtually a lone hand for his country with the second highest score being just 34 not out, by David Willey batting at number eight.
Understandably England showed somewhat of a hang-over following their exploits last weekend, although the personnel within their side was largely different. They will likely get better as this series goes on. Australia meanwhile, look very well suited to the 50-over game, particularly their batters, who clearly enjoyed the extra time to build an innings which you don’t get in T20 cricket. It would therefore be no surprise to see the likes of Smith and Head perform well once again this time round. When taking into account their performance on Thursday and the all-round skills shown in this form of cricket, back Australia to secure an unassailable series lead.
