Aussies hit up 260/5

Ferguson surpassed his previous best of 63 against South Africa at Cape Town in April, during a composed 75-ball innings featuring five fours in what was the 24-year-old’s 15th match at this level.

Cameron White made 53 with medium-pacer Paul Collingwood, whose first six overs cost 22 runs, taking two wickets for 47, to check Australia’s progress after England’s Ashes-winning captain Andrew Strauss won the toss and fielded in the first of this seven-match series.
