    FOUR! Travis Head to Moeen Ali. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs.

    Moeen skips down and whacks the ball back past the bowler. England win by five wickets in what was a very comfortable victory. Jason Roy was the star of the show, smacking an England highest score of 180 while Joe Root stuck around at the other end and made his 91 look incredibly easy.

    England made a good start to the series and take a 1-0 lead moving onto Brisbane. If the series is going to be as high scoring as today we should be in for four extremely entertaining games.
