Captain Joe Root scored his maiden fifty of the Ashes tour as England closed the opening day of their four-day warm-up match against a Cricket Australia XI.

Opener Mark Stoneman (61) and Dawid Malan (63) also made half-centuries but no batsman was able to post England’s first century of the tour.

Young leg-spinner Daniel Fallins, in his maiden first-class match, removed four of England’s top six in the day-night match, which is being played with a pink ball in Adelaide.

Playing in conditions similar to those they will encounter in the floodlit second Ashes Test also in Adelaide, England fought hard but struggled to time the ball on a ground with a slow outfield.

Root was the most fluent of England’s batsmen, making a busy 58 from 89 balls, but there were failures for opener Alastair Cook (15) and wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow (9).
