Batting first, England were bowled out for 259. This was after the hosts witnessed another batting collapse at the top order. Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root both had departed without scoring a run. Jos Buttler (60) and Jason Roy (41) helped add some respectability to the England total before they were bowled out for 259 in 45.5 overs.
