Root expected to be fit for ODI opener

Root expected to be fit for ODI opener

He said: "I know they had a hard run with weather in the Champions Trophy, they didn't even complete a full game against us, and certainly that was a struggle for them".

England skipper Eoin Morgan believes that the pace at which cricket is changing, particularly in shorter formats, will see countries employ different coaches for different formats.

Eoin Morgan has leapt to the defence of England head-coach Trevor Bayliss, praising him for lifting the pressure off the squad. "So I'm open to it".

England rebranded their limited-overs game dramatically since they were last one these shores, the abject 2015 World Cup campaign which exposed some outdated ideas and became a watershed moment for the team.

Jos Buttler definitely has a task on his shoulders going into the first one-day global. The last one year has been a successful one for England in the ODIs while Australia have struggled in the 50-over game winning only five games last year.

"It had quite a significant role, really", Morgan said.

He added: "After that, a line was drawn in the sand and we were given clear directives that the goal was the 2019 World Cup".

"I think we'll see some very entertaining cricket and there's some good talent on show". To bridge the gap between where we were at in that World Cup and, say, being in the semi-final or the final was the first port of the call and bridging that gap came quicker that we ever thought it would. It gives clarity to everybody in the team. I think, as a captain and backroom staff, we certainly thrived on that. "It's not often you get free rein and ambition to be adventurous as you like".

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.

"Ben is a fantastic player".

"He's obviously a key part". "I don't know why this is news". Like most nations, they have also been strong at home and suffered few losses while playing against India. They are running high on confidence and will look to transform it into a good performance when the two teams meet in the first ODI at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. "TB has been brilliant", England's limited-overs captain said.

Smith will be hoping to continue his dominance over the tourists after feasting on 687 runs at an average of 137.40 during the Ashes. He wants to play in 50-over World Cups and T20 World Cups. "Par for the course for this series will be bringing out the positive aggressive style with the bat with adapting to the wicket".
