Tri Series, Sydney

England 234 (47.5 overs) Morgan 121; Starc 4-42

Australia 235-7 (39.5 overs) Warner 127; Woakes 4-40

Australia won by three wickets. 

A David Warner hundred led Australia to a comfortable victory over England in the opening ODI Tri-Series match.

Warner dominated the chase, making 127 as Australia won by three wickets with 10.1 overs to spare.

England were saved from embarrassment by captain Eoin Morgan who made 121, while the rest of his team only managed 93 runs between them.

Australia won by three wickets with 10.1 overs to spare, earning themselves a bonus point in the process.

The loss extends England’s poor record against the Ozzies to 11 defeats in 13 tests.

A record that Morgan and his men will not cherish, especially given that England open their World Cup campaign to the same opposition in Melbourne on February 14th.
