Openers White and Aaron Finch put on a stand of 106, a record opening wicket partnership for Australia against England.

Finch went in the 11th over, caught at long-on off Stuart Broad, after making 52 off 31 balls with three sixes.

White departed two overs later, trapped lbw by Luke Wright, but he smashed four sixes in his 43-ball knock.

Glenn Maxwell (20) and George Bailey (14) came and went before debutant Chris Lynn crashed three sixes in his 19-ball 37.

England lost Michael Lumb (nine) in the second over of their reply. Moises Henriques then struck twice in his opening over, bowling Luke Wright for nine before trapping Alex Hales lbw for 22.

The tourists were 45-3 after five overs and then lost Eoin Morgan for four when he was bowled by Maxwell.

Joe Root and Jos Buttler kept the game alive with a 47-run partnership off 27 balls before they both departed in the same Nathan Coulter-Nile over.

Wicketkeeper Buttler picked out deep cover off a full toss after making 20. Three balls later, Root found long-off after hitting 32 from 24 balls.

Bopara blasted the fastest T20 half-century for England, but the tourists lost wickets at regular intervals and failed to keep in touch with the run rate.

Bopara finished unbeaten on 65 after smashing seven sixes in his 27-ball knock, but England fell short.

The series continues in Melbourne on Friday before finishing in Sydney on Sunday.
