Eoin Morgan hit a swashbuckling 89 not out from 63 balls with four sixes and five fours, while Jonathan Trott hit 54, with three fours from 70 balls.

Clint McKay was the pick of Australia’s bowlers with figures of 1-43.

The tourists won the toss and chose to field but England belied a sluggish start, which saw the players forced off for three separate rain intervals, to set a challenging target.
