David Warner joins ailing cricketers' list on Australia-England ODI series

BBC Sport looks at why England can be considered favourites to win the series less than two years on from their miserable World Cup showing.

Bayliss this week confirmed his intention to step down after the 2019 Ashes, England having surrendered the urn to Australia in a 4-0 series defeat.

Bayliss, however, deserves credit for what he has achieved, with England's one-day side unrecognisable from the ragtag outfit that so disappointed at the 2015 World Cup in Australasia. Jake Ball, Sam Billings, Dawid Malan, Tom Curran and David Willey have been left out.

"Everyone has been playing plenty of cricket so it won't be a case of England being rusty".

"I'd say, if anything, the formats are getting further and further apart".

The make-up of the English attack is different, with Mark Wood, Liam Plunkett and Adil Rashid all arriving to try their luck.

"We had that discussion a few days ago, I suggested to him that he shouldn't play, that he should have a break", Bayliss was quoted as saying by British media on Tuesday.


They have a better record than any other team since the last World Cup winning 34 of 53 matches. During the same period, Australia reached 300 12 times in 50 matches, including 10 out of 23 matches batting first.

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.

Taylor said he would not be surprised if England rest Root for the first two games after the Test captain retired ill with a viral illness on the final day of the fifth Test.

Morgan did not offer any further clues about the make-up of the England's team but hinted that all three openers - Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy and Alex Hales could be accommodated.

Hales could be involved for the first time since being suspended for his involvement in an incident in Bristol in September, which saw team-mate Ben Stokes arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm. "It's not often you get free rein and ambition to be as adventurous as you like".

Taylor expects Moeen Ali to have "more of an impact" in the one-day series, following a torrid Ashes with bat and ball. "The middle order is a key area for us to focus on".

Sitting down at the MCG, where England had been thrashed by Australia in the opening match of the 2015 World Cup on the way to early elimination, Morgan said the struggles of that tournament had been a major catalyst for change, along with the knowledge that the next event would be held at home.
