England batted first in the match and courtesy of Dawid Malan's 134 off 128 balls revived from the initial shock to reach 287 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in their 50 overs.
The top 3 of the Australian batting order comprising of David Warner (84 off 86), Travis Head (69 off 57) and Steve Smith (80 off 78) made sure that Australia chased down the target pretty easily in the end. Australia was done with the chase with 6 wickets in hand and 3.1 overs remaining in the match.
We will keep making some changes in the series: Jos Buttler
In the post match presentation ceremony Jos Buttler was seen reflecting on the not so good start with the bat. He also spoke about England concentrating on giving chances to newer group of players providing them experience and widening the pool of talent of the players.
"We tried to play with intent with the bat and Dawid Malan played a brilliant knock looking at the position we were in. The inexperienced bowling attack responded well under pressure and I am happy with the way everyone played. The game finished a bit earlier but we are happy with the effort.
It's a quick turnaround since Saturday [the T20 World Cup final] so we will keep making some changes in the series allowing some game time and experience to the players also widening our talent pool."
