Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski won their men's doubles first-round match at the Australian Open.

The British pairing defeated Canada's Vasek Pospisil and Poland's Hubert Hurkacz 6-4 6-4.

Murray and Skupski, seeded 14th, will play Americans Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey in the second round.

They were due to play on Thursday but the match was postponed because of the delay caused by mud and dust on the outside courts.
