David Warner has reached his fifty against England in the first One-Day International (ODI) of the tri-series. Warner has made his 11th ODI fifty and has put Australia on course to a victory here. Warner has batted with his usual dominance and has ensured that Australia got off to a good start despite the loss of Aaron Finch and Shane Watson.

England set only 235 as a target and Australia will be the favourites here. Australia have a good batting wicket, with batsmen in form, so it should not been an issue here. India is the third team in this series and they will also present a challenge here.

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. Morgan’s century took England to 234 after they were struggling at 69 for five at one stage.
