That's out: Australia's captain Tim Paine plays a shot and is caught
London (AFP) - Australia were dismissed for just 214 against England after winning the toss in the first one-day international at The Oval on Wednesday.
Glenn Maxwell (62) and Ashton Agar (40) were the only batsmen to make more than 24 as Australia were bowled out with three overs left in their innings.
Off-spinner Moeen Ali took a trio of top-order wickets on the way to figures of three for 43 as England, the number one-ranked side in ODIs, looked to bounce back from their shock six-run loss to Scotland in Edinburgh on Sunday.
This five-match series was Australia’s first in international cricket since their controversial ‘ball-tampering’ tour of South Africa led to year-long bans for former captain Steve Smith and his deputy, David Warner, with batsman Cameron Bancroft suspended for nine months after applying sandpaper to the ball during the third Test in Cape Town.
