After losing the Ashes and also the only T20 international fixture against England, Australia will have a chance to avoid a defeat in all formats of the game. Their tour ends with a five-match ODI series.

The world champions won the opening ODI at The Rose Bowl, Southampton, by 54 runs. Steven Smith won the toss and elected to bat first. A good opening partnership between Jason Burns (44) and David Warner (59) was followed by the captain's contribution of 44 to the overall tally.

The middle order failed to impress with the bat, only before Matthew Wade stepped up. The wicket-keeping batsman's brilliant knock of 71 from 50 deliveries and Mitchell Marsh's quick 40 helped the visitors post a total of 304.

In reply, opening batsman Jason Roy scored 67, while James Taylor fell one run short of a half century. Apart from the duo, the rest of the new look England side failed to fire with the bat, which saw them suffer a defeat.

The Three Lions will be looking to bounce back in the second ODI at Lord's. A victory for Australia will put them in the driving seat to seal the series.
