England beat Australia in the first ODI of the five-match series at the Oval in London. Put into bat first Australia could only manage to score 215. In reply, England chased down the score with six overs to spare. What should have been a comfortable chase became a tricky one as England lost quick wickets in the middle overs hurting their chase. But half-centuries from Joe Root and Eoin Morgan and a quick 35 from David Willey was enough to see them home. For Australia, it was a disappointing start under Justin Langer as they simply did not get enough runs on the board. They need to score more runs to put pressure on the English side in the coming matches.
