Australia collapsing with seven wickets down in first ODI

England limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan will lead his side out against Australia on Sunday

Albeit the Ashes are done and dusted, the traditional rivalry between Australia and England is a no-brainer. However, the 50-over format battle is expected to be far more competitive and closely fought than much hyped underwhelming Ashes.

England won the toss and elected to bowl Sunday in the series-opening one-day cricket global against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. On one hand, the hosts will be hoping to continue their dream stint and on the other, the visitors, whose tryst with batting experiment nearly blew up in their faces, will be looking to shrug aside their struggles and approach the ODIs like they have been doing from past year and a half.

They have a better record than any other team since the last World Cup winning 34 of 53 matches. But they're a very strong team, certainly at home. However, more or less, they have been able to stay right on top due to their right team combinations. "Davey (Warner) has been exceptional in one-day cricket opening for the past few years, Finchy (Aaron Finch) played well in the last series in India".

England squad: Eoin Morgan (capt), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood. The bowling duties will be done by Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid and Chris Woakes.

"That is an option", said Morgan.

Smith previously stated that Maxwell was dropped in part because his training habits were not up to global standards and the pair were snapped clearing the air at a cafe in Melbourne on Friday.

Australia: Australia handed debut to Andrew Tye, while Cameron White, Jhye Richardson, and Josh Hazlewood sit out.

Finch's century was backed by fifties from Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis as Australia recovered from a shaky start in which the tourists finally managed to get bogeyman Steve Smith cheaply.

Jos Buttler definitely has a task on his shoulders going into the first one-day global.

"Guys up top have been scoring some big runs".

England coach Trevor Bayliss was criticised following another Test series defeat, but this series provides a timely opportunity for England's one-day side to continue the progress made during his time in charge.

"We got a huge amount of confidence from the selectors".

Because Cricket Australia retain their own digital rights to global cricket played in Australia, you won't be able to watch this match through any of Nine's normal streaming means.
