Dawid Malan scored 134 from 128 balls to lead an England resurgence in the first ODI against Australia at the Adelaide Oval.

Having been sent in to bat first, England crumbled to 4-66 early but No.3 Malan resisted Australia’s bowlers over 41 overs to notch his second ODI century.

England went on to salvage a respectable 9-287 from its 50 overs with Australia failing to rip through the lower order.

In reply, Australia is 1-172 after 24 overs with David Warner and Steve Smith at the crease after Travis Head was caught for 69.

Magic Malan smashes 134! | 04:12

Warner has looked in great touch, scooping David Willey off one knee for six over fine leg in the seventh over.

“That is a ridiculous shot,” and impressed Adam Gilchrist said in commentary.

In the first innings, David Willey finished unbeaten on 34 off 40 balls, while Pat Cummins (3-62) and Adam Zampa (3-55) took three wickets each.

One of the highlights of the innings, however, was the incredible fielding of Ashton Agar.

Agar took two catches and completed a brilliant direct hit to dismiss Liam Dawson, but his best moment was an acrobatic leap to save six runs off Malan in the 45th over.

“That is crazy,” Adam Gilchrist said in commentary, before repeating: “That is crazy.”

Earlier, Australia struck inside the first four overs with Pat Cummins finding the outside edge of Phil Salt (14 off 15) one ball after the batter had sent him to the ropes.

Just two balls later, Mitchell Starc ripped through Jason Roy with a trademark inswinger that skittled the opener for six off 11.

“A ripper from Starc,” Adam Gilchrist said in commentary. “You could hear the batsman, he could not believe it.

James Vince (5) couldn’t stem the flow with a probing Pat Cummins’ delivery outside off stump picking up another outside edge in the eighth over.

In the 14th over, Marcus Stoinis struck with just his second ball for the match which nipped back through Sam Billings’ gate for 17 off 22.

That brought captain Jos Buttler to the crease who helped recover the England innings alongside Dawid Malan in a 52-run stand. But Adam Zampa had the last laugh with Buttler failing to clear the ropes and caught by Ashton Agar for 29 off 34.

Liam Dawson made 11 runs off 17 but opted for a risky single on the arm of Ashton Agar, who brilliantly threw down the stumps at the non-striker’s end.

Adam Gilchrist and Mark Waugh were baffled by the decision, and the lack of intensity from Dawson to get down the other end.

“No way in the world that’s a run … they’ve lost a wicket they don’t need to lose,” Waugh said.

“The weird thing was he was watching it. He was watching the ball. Really, Malan should’ve sent him back and said ‘there’s no run there’.”  

Gilchrist added: “He almost gives up straight away as soon as he says ‘yes’. There was no intensity in his desire to get to the other end.”  

Adam Zampa trapped Chris Jordan lbw for 14 in the 37th over for Australia’s seventh wicket.

That gave way to a 60-run partnership between Malan and David Willey with the former eventually holing out for Zampa’s second wicket.


Australia has left out Josh Hazlewood and Mitch Marsh with Ashton Agar and Cameron Green picked for the hosts. The two-spin approach goes against the make-up of recent Australian sides — and is a clear sign of plans being put in place for the ODI World Cup in India next year.

Meanwhile, Travis Head will open alongside David Warner with Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne making up the rest of the top-order. Marcus Stoinis is in the middle-order with Alex Carey, who wears the gloves, while Cummins, Adam Zampa and Mitchell Starc complete Australia’s bowling options.

In total, there are five changes from Australia’s last match at the T20 World Cup with Glenn Maxwell (broken leg), Kane Richardson (omitted), Aaron Finch (retired), Hazlewood (omitted) and Marsh (omitted) missing.

England has handed an ODI debut to Luke Wood and has made many changes from the team that won the World Cup final against Pakistan. Only Buttler, Phil Salt and Chris Jordan are backing up.
