Warner, one ball after being missed by Steven Finn, then holed out off Dernbach to Hales, who was sweeping on the cover fence.

When Dernbach took two wickets in two balls to dismiss Glenn Maxwell and Faulkner to leave Australia 148 for eight in the 18th over, the match was all but over.

England, who won the preceding Ashes Test campaign 3-0, and Australia meet in their third format of the season when a five-match one-day international series starts in Leeds on Friday.

However, both sides will be in one-day international action tomorrow, with England away to Ireland in Malahide and Australia facing Scotland in Edinburgh.
