Check out the state of play at the end of the Three Lions’ innings.
A patient 79 from Gary Ballance and whirlwind 50 from Eoin Morgan helped England to 269-7 in the first one-day international against Australia on Sunday.
Ballance, who came to the crease when England were struggling at 22-2, held the innings together before accelerating towards the end when quick runs were needed.
He shared in an 83-run partnership with Morgan, who blasted his 20th ODI half-century off just 47 balls with five fours and a towering six.
