England win toss, elect to bowl against Australia

"Australia is a tough place to be, especially when you're losing, but the fresh faces will provide an added impetus and do the world of good for England", former England batsman James Taylor told BBC Sport. 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.

The five-match series presents England with a chance to test the limits of their carefree approach against the world champions before next year's home World Cup.

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.

Joining teammates Steve Smith and Patrick Cummins, and England captain Joe Root in the ailing cricketers' list, Australian vice-captain David Warner missed the training session on Saturday ahead of the opening Gillette ODI series against England.

England's development into a one-day force after their dismal group-stage exit from the 2015 World Cup has been based largely on a talented batting line-up prepared to attack throughout the innings.

They have a better record than any other team since the last World Cup winning 34 of 53 matches.

0930 hrs IST: 50 up for Australia in the 10th over.

Preview: England Test captain Joe Root is expected to be fit for Sunday's one-day series opener against Australia in Melbourne as he continues to recover from the illness that saw him treated in hospital during the fifth Ashes Test.

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.

England's formidable attack will be missing the likes of Ben Stokes who is yet to receive a green signal from Police Authority of Bristol, England.

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 made a decision to recruit the wrong Australian. "TB has been brilliant", England's limited-overs captain said. The all-rounder claimed 2-28 from 10 overs in the warm-up victory over a Cricket Australia XI this week. Chris Woakes will bowl to Aaron Finch.

Marsh continued his renaissance from the Test series with 50 from 66 balls, but was bowled by a cleverly disguised wrong'un from Rashid.

Australia should pick up the first win of this ODI series.

Bayliss has said since the Ashes that he will stand down when his contract expires in September 2019. "It's not often you get free rein and ambition to be adventurous as you like".

"Trevor Bayliss doesn't say a lot, but what he does say, everybody listens to and takes on board".
