England captain Alastair Cook was forced to watch more agony inflicted on his side, as now the one day team suffered more agony in Australia, as the home thrashed England by six wickets at a half empty MCG in Melbourne.....

It was more of the same as we had witnessed in the 5-0 test series defeat as England failed to post enough runs to stop the Australian's running more dirt into the England cricket team on this disaster of a tour.

First one-day international, Melbourne Australia 270-4 (45.4 overs) beat England 269-7 (50 overs) by six wickets

Australia David Warner, Aaron Finch, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke (C), George Bailey, Glenn Maxwell, Brad Haddin (W), James Faulkner, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty

England Alastair Cook (C), Ian Bell, Joe Root, Gary Ballance, Eoin Morgan, Ravi Bopara, Jos Buttler (W), Ben Stokes, Tim Bresnan, Chris Jordan, Boyd Rankin

England won the toss and elected to bat first
