Trescothick played some delightful shots and struck 16 boundaries in a 76-ball hundred.

Andrew Strauss, restored to the top of the order, hit a six in his 82.

Debutant Jon Lewis took three wickets to leave the tourists 76-6 at one point before Aftab Ahmed (51) and Mohammad Rafique (30) put on 76 together.
