AP England's Gary Ballance bats against Australia during their one-day international cricket match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne, Australia, on Sunday.

Aaron Finch made his second century in one-day cricket internationals, sharing a 163-run opening partnership with David Warner that lifted Australia to a six-wicket win over England Sunday in the first of a four-match series.

Finch made 121 and Warner 65 as Australia, in a carefully measured chase, ran down England’s competitive total of 269-7 in 45.4 overs.

The opening stand, which occupied 27.5 overs, allowed Australia to maintain the crushing superiority over England it displayed in winning the Ashes test series 5-0. And England were once again contributors to their own demise, dropping easy catches and lacking sharpness in the field.

Captain Alastair Cook’s wretched summer continued when he was dismissed for 4 from only the third ball of the match.
