Highest for an opening pair in Australia

284Runs added by David Warner and Travis Head for the opening partnership. This is the second highest opening stand in ODIs. They fell two short of the record of 286 held by Sanath Jayasuriya and Upul Tharanga against England in 2006.
This is also the highest partnership for any wicket for Australia going past the 260 runs added by Steven Smith and Warner against Afghanistan in Perth in 2015. In the process, Warner and Head also surpassed Australia's previous best opening stand of 246 by Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh against Scotland in Edinburgh.
