England bounced back from the narrow defeat against Scotland with a comfortable 3-wicket win against Australia in the first game of the 5-match ODI series at The Oval. Moeen Ali ran through the Australian top-order to reduce them to 90/5 before the 20th over.

Glenn Maxwell (62) and Aston Agar (40) added 84 for the 6th wicket before another collapse reduced them to 218/10 with three overs to spare. The home side lost their top three for just 38 runs on the board before their skipper Eoin Morgan (69) and Joe Root (50) scored fifties to ease the chase. England got over the line safely despite a couple of late wickets.
