Tim Paine elected to bat first after winning the toss to ensure they didn’t concede a record total again. Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh scored centuries while Travis Head scored 63 helping their side finish on 310/8.

Australia picked up four wickets for 70 runs before England reached the target with 32 balls to spare as Jos Buttler scored 54 in just 29 balls.
