Sri Lanka v New Zealand
Ian Bell's measured 91 was the cornerstone of England's 269-6, while Jonathan Trott made 47 and Ravi Bopara supplied late impetus with 46 not out off 37 balls.
Despite 55 from stand-in skipper George Bailey and James Faulkner's lusty unbeaten 54, Australia laboured to 221-9 on a largely blameless surface.
