  • England v Australia – First Royal London ODI – England Nets Session – Kia Oval

The end result is that neither the captain nor the vice-captain that led the country last time round will be playing. The tourists are further weakened by the absence of injured fast bowlers Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood, the trio whose presence proved so instrumental in the Ashes. While there are plenty of vacancies in the Test team, England's 50-over side nearly chooses itself with only one or two spaces possibly up for grabs.

David Warner and Steve Smith are both suspended.

Jonny Bairstow is braced for Australia to provide a real challenge in this month's ODI series as his England teammates look to bounce back from their humbling defeat to Scotland.

Morgan confirmed England will agree to Australia's request, with the hosts ready to help advance a positive view of the sport.

England captain Eoin Morgan refused to view the shock loss to Scotland as a catastrophe and paid tribute to the underdogs after yesterday's
sensational six-run win in a high-scoring
thriller, writes Duncan Smith. Even in this new era of toned-down sledging from Australia, it would be a surprise if England's stumble in Edinburgh wasn't given the occasional mention when the two sides meet.

"To be captain of the team is a huge honour and massive privilege, so I am just looking forward to getting into it on Wednesday", he said. In a bid to beef up the middle-order, Aaron Finch might have to relinquish his opening slot with Travis Head expected to open the innings.


Jason Roy and Bairstow launched England's reply with a century stand but Bairstow holed out when he might have won the game.

"I can see us getting there in the next couple of years", Tony Brian, chairman of Cricket Scotland, told the BBC.

South Australia seamer Kane Richardson is the most seasoned campaigner with 15 appearances, Andrew Tye has four, Billy Stanlake two, Jhye Richardson one and Michael Neser is yet to debut.

Shaun Marsh looks set to miss out on the first ODI.

There were many interested observers of the scenes at The Grange on Sunday and a group of them were in London on a day off before their final preparations for the one-day series against England. It would be nice to play a few more games like this. Tom Curran might come into the side with Liam Plunkett making way for him.

England's Ben Stokes is sidelined with a hamstring injury. In total, he has scored 1,853 ODI runs at an average of 35.

"Twelve months down the line, to score five hundreds and three on the bounce, I am pleased with where I have gone".
