Hosts Australia kick started their World Cup campaign with a bang as they demolished England by 111 runs at Melbourne. Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell lead Australia’s batting charge with the former scoring a hundred on his World Cup debut and the latter thrashing the England bowlers at the end and taking the team’s total to 342. 

In reply, Mitchell Marsh ran through the batting of poms and his 5-wicket haul proved more than enough for the hosts to secure a huge victory.
