Australia beat England by 6 wickets

Adelaide, 17 November (Agency)

With the help of half-centuries from veteran David Warner and Steve Smith, Australia defeated England by six wickets in the first ODI cricket match here on Thursday, beating David Malan’s century. Malan played an attractive inning of 134 runs off 128 balls. However, they did not get help from the other end, due to which England could only manage 287 runs for nine wickets when they were invited to bat first. Australia’s top-order batsmen David Warner (86), Travis Head (69) and Steve Smith (80 not out) scored half-centuries to take an early lead in the three-match series by scoring 291 for four in 46.5 overs.
