Australia's hold over England continued with a six-wicket win in the first one-day international in Melbourne.

Opener Aaron Finch hit 121, after being dropped on eight, as the hosts reached a target of 270 with 26 balls to spare.

Having elected to bat, England posted 269-7 off 50 overs with Eoin Morgan and Gary Ballance scoring half centuries.

But Finch and David Warner seized the initiative with an opening stand of 163 to set Australia on the way to victory in the first of the five-match series.
