Joe Root completed his first score of England's Ashes tour by hitting 58 on day one of the day-night warm-up match against a Cricket Australia XI at Adelaide Oval.
England skipper Root, dismissed for nine in his team's opening practice game against a WACA XI in Perth over the weekend, struck four boundaries in his 89-ball knock against the pink ball as the visitors closed on 278-8.
Mark Stoneman (61) and Dawid Malan (63) passed fifty for the second game running and James Vince (33) and Chris Woakes (33) also chipped in, though England lost three wickets for seven runs before stumps to the second new ball with Malan falling to the final delivery of the day.
Alastair Cook's lean run continued as he snicked behind for 15 having fallen for a two-ball duck at the WACA - the former captain has now totalled just 76 runs in six innings since he scored a double century against Windies in the day-night Test at Edgbaston in August.
Jonny Bairstow (9) also fell cheaply - the wicketkeeper-batsman one of four wickets for 21-year-old leg-spinner Daniel Fallins - and Craig Overton (0) was dismissed ninth ball.
Malan was preferred to Gary Ballance at No 5, while Mason Crane was selected as the sole spinner in the side with all-rounder Moeen Ali still nursing a left side strain.
Stuart Broad has been rested, allowing Overton and Jake Ball to stake their claims for the fourth seamer's spot for the first Ashes Test in Brisbane on November 23, while back-up wicketkeeper Ben Foakes also missed out.
Surrey seamer Tom Curran, called up on Tuesday to replace knee-injury victim Steve Finn, will join up with the squad later this week and will hope to play in the final warm-up against the Cricket Australia XI in Townsville from November 15.
England's pink-ball game in Adelaide is serving as preparation for the first day-night Ashes Test - the second game of the 2017/18 series - which takes place at the same venue from December 2.
