Cameron Bancroft scored the winning runs for Australia in his test debut, shared a record partnership with David Warner, and then fielded a flurry of questions about an incident that happened last month over a few beers with England wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow.Bancroft scored an unbeaten 82 in the 173-run opening stand as Australia wrapped up a 10-wicket victory over England on Monday, surpassing the 170 victory target with 2 ½ sessions to spare in the Ashes series opener.The last session of the match, when Australia had all day to score 56 runs, was overshadowed by news overnight that the England Cricket Board was investigating Bairstow for reportedly head-butting Bancroft during a meeting in a Perth bar four weeks ago.Smith's unbeaten 141 from 326 deliveries in the first innings turned the match and earned him the player of the match award.
