Time for the presentation:

Eoin Morgan: We did well to get to 234 after the early wickets, 250 would have been better. Ultimately the early wickets cost us. Starc swings the ball like Jimmy Anderson, so credit to him. We still won't know what a par score is if we look back, losing wickets throughout the innings cost us. I was happy with my performance to start like this as captain but devastated at the result. Woakes bowled well, Moeen Ali held his own as well. Looking forward to play India after four days.

Starc is the Man of the Match: To contribute to a win is always great and make Australia win is what we play for. The ball came out nicely and they got some partnerships in the middle but as a whole we bowled really really well. It's fantastic to see Warner bat like that, he's had a great summer and showed it tonight as well. There's healthy competition among the fast bowlers in the squad, everyone's looking for games and wickets in the tri-series and in the lead up to the World Cup.

George Bailey: Outstanding, and especially the start Starc gave us. He's coming down at really good pace and he can rip through the heart of a team. Cummins is coming along nicely as well and Johnson will be back with Hazlewood so we have some good pace. It's a challenging tri-series here. We were reasonably late to go for the bonus point, maybe in the Powerplay and Warner deserved to get his hundred. We made sure he got it and then went for the win, trying to make sure it didn't get messy.

That's all we have from the first match of the series. Join us again on Sunday for the Australia-India clash at the MCG - 2.20pm local time. Until then it's goodbye from Vishal Dikshit. Adiós!

9.35pm What was going to be an easy win turned out to be stressful as Australia chased the bonus point. The target wasn't that steep on this pitch and Warner's hundred made sure they got there within 40 overs to start the series on a great note. What actually set it up for them was two wickets in the first three balls of the match from Mitchell Starc. It did go downhill from there, even though Eoin Morgan unleashed a fighting hundred that put up a respectable score for England.

Broad to Faulkner, OUT, oh, that's chaos, that's just poor stuff from Australia as Haddin is run out! Faulkner dug out the full delivery to short midwicket, Haddin was already halfway down the track and Bopara ran to the non-striker's end with the ball to run him out

  • Morgan must get England to show some edge

    The way the England captain imposed himself in Sydney can teach his fellow batsmen about finding a bit of mongrel

  • Australia re-open English scars

    Australia hope they have re-opened the scars of last summer's English misery down under with a comfortable opening triangular series victory at the SCG, and the tourists' new captain Eoin Morgan certainly sounded disconsolate after his century served only
