Billings slams maiden hundred but again he will not be happy with it as it may not help the hosts win the match. Zampa has been the star for Australia with the ball along with Hazlewood. Australia take a 1-0 lead in the series, but they would not relax as they would know very well that the hosts could bounce back. For Australia, it was an all-round effort that helped them win. England seemed to have lost the plot early on with the early setbacks. Maxwell, Marsh played well for Australia slamming fifties to give their bowlers a platform to bowl to. Australia win by 19 runs.
