Aaron Finch century takes Australia past 300 in first ODI against England

Aaron Finch century takes Australia past 300 in first ODI against England

England are now fourth in the one-day rankings - level on points with third-placed Australia and on the coat-tails of the top-two, South Africa and India - and are perfectly capable of achieving their dream of lifting the World Cup next year.

The tour midnight curfew remains in place for the one-day series and the players have been told they will be punished if there are repeats of incidents such as the Jonny Bairstow butt and the boozy night in Perth when Ben Duckett threw a drink at James Anderson.

"This time next year we need to be in a good enough space to be contenders for the World Cup", said the Dubliner on the eve of the five-match series. During the same period, Australia reached 300 12 times in 50 matches, including 10 out of 23 matches batting first.

For England, looking to bounce back from a 4-0 Ashes scoreline, seamer Liam Plunkett and spinner Adil Rashid were expensive but had the most bowling success.

Eoin Morgan has defended his head coach, Trevor Bayliss, before England's ODI series against Australia.

Root didn't name names, but his Nice Guy image slipped when the off field shenanigans of some players during the Ashes series came up.

Dangerman David Warner lasted just five balls - and one of those was a dropped catch - in making two. Chris Woakes will bowl to Aaron Finch.

'SNL': Bill Murray, Fred Armisen Bring Fire & Fury As Bannon & Wolff
Armisen played the author as flippant about the truth of the tales in his sensational new book about the Trump White House. When asked if everything in the book was accurate, Armisen as Wolff said, "Even the stuff that's not true, is true".

For what it is worth too, I stand by my initial belief that England should not have appointed Bayliss in the first place and that they chose to recruit the wrong Australian. Australia 199 for 4 after 36 overs.

Since Bayliss took over in May 2015, England have won only 15 of his 38 Tests in charge (along with 18 losses and five draws). "He signed a contract until 2019 and has always said the same thing". "It's not often you get free rein and ambition to be as adventurous as you like".

"They are a seriously talented bunch and he lets them go out and play".

All-rounder Glenn Maxwell was dropped when the original squad was announced, with captain Steve Smith questioning the World Cup-winner's training and consistency.

3- Cameron White will return to the yellow jersey after three long years. "I think the lads have been and will continue to be smarter, because it will not be tolerated any more from higher up". Smith has got an inside edge.

"England have got to find a way to stop Smith scoring, let alone get him out, while David Warner and Aaron Finch are world-class top-order batsmen, and they've got Mitch Starc and Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood in form".

They had been rocked early on when for the first time this winter England confronted them with genuine pace. Australia may go into the opener at the MCG as favourites but Morgan has vowed to stick to the approach Bayliss has cultivated.
