Finch and Marsh, who made 50, fell in quick succession and it was left to Marcus Stoinis and Tim Paine to provide Australia's late assault and give them a defendable total.

Australia will look to pile more pain on the England following a 4-0 drubbing in the recent Test series.

Smith admitted that Roy was too good for his side, and said: "He didn't give us a chance, and he chanced his arm".

Roy had plenty of streaky moments, top-edging over the wicketkeeper's head for six early on and becoming particularly frenetic as he approached his hundred, but had Australia scampering as rotated the strike and racked up the boundaries, principally on the leg-side - Roy even rolling out his version of Nat Sciver's Nat-meg.

A blistering start from Roy in the opening power play was curbed by the loss of Jonny Bairstow [14] and Alex Hales [4] in successive overs as Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins repeated their success from the Test series.

Finch played against type for most his innings, striking 10 fours to go with three maximums but also showing admirable restraint before eventually holing out to Moeen.

Meghan Markle Gave Queen Elizabeth a Bizarre Gift
William and Kate's wedding party was publicly announced in February 2011 , almost two months before their April 29 wedding. When is the royal wedding 2018? Meghan Markle sister seems to have had a change of heart (or rather, a change in tone).

Although he retains the support of the players and the England and Wales Cricket Board, which has ruled out the sort of witch-hunt that followed the 2013-14 Ashes whitewash, there are those who believe that he should go now, or, at the very least, could yet go soon.

England have taken a 1-0 lead in the series.

Buttler, who is also the vice captain of the 50-over side, feels the One-day global series, starting at the Melbourne Cricket Ground will be a "great test" for the Englishmen, who were humiliated 0-4 in the preceding Ashes Test rubber.

For what it is worth too, I stand by my initial belief that England should not have appointed Bayliss in the first place and that they chose to recruit the wrong Australian. It had been a tough season last season, so to be selected was incredibly special. But that was just a little blip in hopefully a long career'.

"Yeah too right, a bit of their own medicine was quite nice", Roy said when asked about whether it had been helpful to see Austrlaia's batsmen discomforted by speed. He finished a tough summer incredibly well and what a way to start this series! However, they must not get carried away as the Aussies are sure to come back stronger. "We will miss him but we know he is not going to be part of this series so we can address the balance of this side", he added. Moving Root to 4 was a big decision but it was profitable today.

However, Roy continued to play aggressively as he completed a 32-ball fifty and by the end of the first powerplay, England were positioned 87 for two.
