Warner certain to play ODI series opener against England: Smith

Limited-overs captain Morgan praised Bayliss' impact as England look to restore pride in a five-match one-day worldwide series against Australia and build towards next year's Cricket World Cup.

"My ultimate goal is to play Test cricket for England, and going to Australia with the Lions was the best way to give myself the best chance of doing that".

"We've managed to distinguish between the formats over the past year-and-a-half or so", captain Morgan said. However, whatever the result be, the excitement among fans has already reached another stratum. In fact, between them they have played just 34 List A matches - Tye 24 and Richardson eight.

While the recently concluded Ashes series unfolded at an attritional pace, both sides are likely to approach the next five games in a more cavalier fashion.

Plunkett took two wickets in his nine overs, including CA skipper Matt Renshaw with only his third delivery on tour, and he has no intention of taking a backward step tomorrow.

"You can't replace Ben Stokes, but you can go some way to filling his spot with the variety England have got in their limited-overs set-up", said Taylor. "Also the best way to address it is to be on the front foot".


Despite their poor outing with the willow in the 0-4 Ashes humiliation against Australia, James Vince and Mark Stoneman have retained their places in England's Test squad.

England's batsmen have made 28 centuries since the World Cup, compared to Australia's 21, although David Warner is the leading centurion on either side with 10, while Joe Root leads England with six.

After dominant batsman Chris Lynn was ruled out of the series with a calf injury, Australia have added Cameron White to the squad. It has been believed that trio will be rested for different matches, comprehending at the conditions.

Livingstone will spend the next week or so with Lancashire, looking ahead to the 2018 summer with his head coach Glen Chapple as they aim to go one better than previous year when they finished second to Essex in the Championship table.

As such, the next month provides a flawless test for a touring side with designs on the silverware - something Morgan makes no secret of harbouring.

"Originally, England probably played with too much freedom and not enough nous, but now they are so much more experienced as a group and as individuals that they are being far more consistent than they ever have been", said Taylor, who averaged 42 in 27 ODIs. Some of the guys have been out here playing in the Big Bash, lads have been all over the world playing, so we're full of confidence and looking forward to that first game.
