    Australia [294/9] survive Billings fightback to beat England [275/9] by 19 runs in the 1st ODI

    England and Australia are set to play three ODIs as part of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League, starting 11 September.

    England v Australia, 1st ODI
    Old Trafford, Manchester
    11 September, 2020, 1.00pm local time, 12.00pm GMT

    After the T20Is at Southampton, a series that the hosts claimed 2-1, England and Australia turn their attention to the ODI series in Manchester. The series will mark Australia's first games as part of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League, on their path to the 2023 Men's Cricket World Cup. England, who played Ireland in July-August as part of the competition, lead the points table, having won two matches so far.

    This will be the teams' first meeting in ODIs since Eoin Morgan's side knocked Australia out of the World Cup in the semi-final last year. For England, it is also the first time since that epic final that stars of their campaign Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood return to the ODI set-up.

    Morgan, who missed the final T20I with a dislocated finger, has been declared fit, as has Jason Roy, who has recovered from a side strain. The in-form Buttler, who missed one match for personal reasons, is also back with the squad.

    For Australia, who have had an up-and-down run in the format since their 2015 World Cup triumph and currently sit at No.5 on the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings, the series offers a chance to settle on their best line-up.

    Their main focus will be on the middle order, with skipper Aaron Finch suggesting ahead of the game that he expects Mitchell Marsh, star of the final T20I, to play an important role there. The captain also confirmed that Alex Carey, who was left out for the final T20I, will be back as wicket-keeper.

    The last time they met

    The last time the teams met in an ODI, England knocked Australia out of the World Cup semi-final. Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid took three wickets each, before Roy's brisk 85 led England's chase of 223 for an eight-wicket win.

    In the T20Is earlier this month, Australia fluffed their lines in a seemingly straightforward chase in the first game, before Buttler took the game away in the second. Marsh secured a win in the third to assure them of the No.1 ranking in the format.

    What they said:

    Aaron Finch, Australia captain: "We're still searching for the best formula for us and our best 11 players day in, day out in the one-day format ... We know that any time you play England you can't play at 90%, you have to be at 100% to beat them and we're excited for that challenge."

    Eoin Morgan, England captain: "It's a huge benefit to us playing at Old Trafford, particularly if we play on the wicket that we think we're going to play on which will be slow and that will take a lot of turn. That's both our weakest point and it's more than likely what we're likely to play on in 2023 (in the World Cup in India)."

    Following Australia’s 1-2 defeat to England in the T20Is, former wicketkeeper batsman Adam Gilchrist has pointed out certain issues the national team is grappling with, saying lack of runs and consistency is a concern and that the team needs to address it soon. Australia have been on a bit of a downward spiral post last year’s World Cup, winning only two out of seven ODIs since losing to England in the second semifinal in Edgbaston.

    With the first of the three ODIs starting Friday, Gilchrist highlighted the flaws and what Australia need to do to rectify them.

    “(The middle overs) has been a little bit of a handbrake for the Australians in the one-day format for a number of years, particularly against the spinning ball. Not only does the run rate come down but they tend to lose wickets in clumps – we saw that with the collapse in the first T20. I think that’s the area where other teams have tended to be accelerating and playing that more aggressive brand of cricket,” Gilchrist was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia.

    “That’s been our Achilles heel for a number of years (and) will be challenging again, with the make-up of the England bowling line-up and how everyone in world cricket is probably aware of that handbrake for Australia there. It’s all on the Aussies to work out what the psychology will be, what the match plan will be and what the make-up of the batting order will be.”

    Another area Gilchrist is concerned about is the wicketkeeper’s slot in Australia’s limited-overs set-up. Matthew Wade kept wickets in the T20Is, but Aaron Finch on Thursday confirmed the news of Alex Carey replacing him in the ODIs. The 29-year-old has had a decent start to his ODI career, scoring 884 runs from 36 matches at an average of 34, including 375 runs from nine innings at the 2019 World Cup but Gilchrist reckons Carey needs to adapt a little more to cement his place in the Playing XI.

    “That wicketkeeping role, Alex Carey showing so much promise in an array of facets of the game – leadership, his wicketkeeping is excellent, he’s opened in Big Bash with great success, and he’s shown some really solid form in that middle-order finishing role,” Gilchrist said.

    “But he still hasn’t consistently banged out 80 off 40, total game-changing innings, a la a guy like (England’s Jos) Buttler does regularly, or (Jonny) Bairstow if he happens to have the gloves.

    “That wicketkeeping allrounder position has not quite been totally fulfilled, probably since Brad Haddin. So there’ll be some decisions to be made there by selectors about who they think can do it, or by Alex Carey about just how innovate and creative and aggressive he needs to be to have that impact. And is it at the top of the order, or down at seven, six, or floating?”

    England and Australia are international cricket’s oldest rivals. These two teams played the first ever Test match in 1877 in Melbourne and are part of a traditional rivalry in cricket’s oldest format called ‘The Ashes’. Interestingly, when the sport decided to test uncharted waters by playing the first ever limited overs match, which has since come to be known as one-day internationals, these were the two countries involved again.

    The Melbourne Cricket Ground was the scene of the first ever ODI, which was played between England and Australia on January 5, 1971. A little less than half a century later, these two teams will play against each other in an ODI for the 150th time.

    This will make this rivalry only the third such to have contested 150 or more matches. Asian powerhouses India and Sri Lanka top the list with 159 encounters, while Pakistan and Sri Lanka have battled it out on 155 occasions. England and Australia take part in a three-match ODI series at Manchester from Friday and after the series would have played 152 matches.

    Australia occupy the fourth and fifth slot in the list too, having played 140 ODI matches against India and the West Indies.



    Australia are the most successful team in the format, courtesy their world beating sides of the late 90s and the first decade of the 2000s, when an all-star team dominated the ODI landscape under the leaderships of Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting. They have won the ICC World Cup a record five times.

    India and West Indies have won the global event twice each. India and current world champions England are arguably the biggest powerhouses in ODIs currently but Aaron Finch’s Australia would want to show that the men from down under are not to be taken lightly when they play the upcoming series.

    Nasser Hussain:

    "Smith's absence is quite a hole to fill. After Finch and Warner at the top, Australia would look to go to Smith and Labuschagne - two very similar players but Stoinis comes in. We saw in the last T20 that Mitchell Marsh found form straight away - he's a very good cricketer; he'll like the pace on this pitch even though Morgan said it won't be a typically fast pitch.

    "Carey keeps his place as wicketkeeper batsman but Australia will be looking for more from Maxwell before the three big guns, with serious pace - Starc, Hazlewood and Cummins."

    Australia's ODI batting has looked very thin in recent years. Stoinis at 3 lol. They need Travis head or someone there.

    Stuart Broad:

    "This is England's best team without Stokes. They are such a strong side, full of match-winners, but I think Morgan will be the dangerman today with the left-hander's aiming towards the short boundary with the wind. It's a great opportunity for Sam Billings at five - he's someone who has not had a huge amount of opportunity, so he'll be looking to grab hold of that.

    "I think Buttler is England's best-ever white-ball player - he's so versatile - but Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid are going to be crucial on a pitch like we've got today. It's likely to be slow."

    Stoinis should bat at 3 with marnus at 4. Aus batting line up is lacking a quality no 5. Too many players who are good for just a half century at best

    Stonis can hit bouandires at will. But he seems better suited to batting up the order . It allows him to play himself in , get use to the conditions and then explode when set.

    I agree. He is kind of overrated.

    I would replace him with Travis Head (who can also bowl a bit).

    At moment he looks like a tail ender. Cost them the first t20 where he was struggling against pace and now today he looked totally clueless against rashid. Wade should be ahead of him.

    Brain eveywhere or not he looks dreadful at the moment. Getting beaten for pace and sweeping every ball becuase he doesnt know what way is spinning. Looks far from a top class player specially considering hes 29.

    England are easily the best ODI side in the world. Unreal how much depth they have as well. Also people try to make out as their bowling attack is crap which isn't the case. Archer is a top class bowler , Rashid is the best LO spinner in the world , Woakes and Wood are very good bowlers too.

    Steve Smith must start taking LOIs seriously. It is hard to think a batsmen of that stature averages 42 in ODIs. If he can be a 50+ averaging batsmen for Australia at even 85 SR, that will do wonders for them.

    I don't understand why Australia gave him so many chances in tests but not as many in LO. He has a very good ODI record.

    Maxwell's spin bowling will be useful in subcontinent as next World cup is in India. Australia should persist with him. But they need to get rid of Stoinis and play Mitchell Marsh assuming he is at his best version.

    Smith and Labu at 3 and 4, Carey at 5, Marsh and then Maxwell at 7. But the latter three need to do more to prove their worth.

    50 for Mitchell Marsh. Very good innings. Came in a difficult situation. He has shown he isn't just a power hitter. He is capable of rebuilding an innings.

    Over 50 – Australia 294-9 (Hazlewood 0no, Starc 19no)

    Woakes would have been delighted with the first five balls, especially the fifth, – but is gutted as he sees the last moosed for six over midwicket by Starc. England need 295 to win, which would be a record chase at Emirates Old Trafford.

    These 2 need to bat till at least the 45th over. Don't want Starc and Cummins to have to rebuild an innings. You want them just to come out and slog.

    Aussies have fielded their best possible attack, they’ll make a game of it whatever they post from here. But, England is chasing here and they are at full strength minus Stokes. Should be a close game, but I’ll put money on England’s chances here - their players are coming after a battle hardened summer, while this is Aussies first serious game apart from T20s since March.

    Ony England can afford to leave someone like Malan for billings. Just shocking not have him in the team
    considering his red hot form with white ball.

    Carey, needs rest they must try the newbie josh phillips carey looks so out of touch
