Chris Woakes has been dismissed in the first One-Day International (ODI) against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Woakes played one from Glenn Maxwell straight into the hands of mid-wicket. England are now 170 for seven in 41 overs and it has been held together by Eoin Morgan. England will have to work very hard to get a good score.

England had been under pressure since the first ball as Ian Bell was dismissed leg-before. However, after that the slide continued as James Taylor went two balls later. And, then they lost Joe Root and Ravi Bopara. And, then there was a good partnership between Morgan and Jos Buttler but Morgan has held the innings together.

England had won the toss and had elected to bat first. Eoin Morgan has taken over Alastair Cook as captain and has some good players in the unit. Australia are not playing Mitchell Johnson in this game. Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins are the main fast bowlers with Xavier Doherty as the spinner.
