England v Australia: Sam Billings hits ton but tourists win by 19 runs

England fell to a 19-run defeat against Australia despite Sam Billings’ maiden century in the first one-day international at Emirates Old Trafford.

Chasing 295, England were quickly reduced to 57-4 after a fine opening spell from pace bowler Josh Hazlewood.

Billings’ 118, and 88 from Jonny Bairstow, gave England hope, but the hosts could not get on top of the creeping run-rate and finished on 275-9.

Australia had earlier recovered from 123-5 to post 294-9 from their 50 overs, largely thanks to a superb 126-run partnership between Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell.
