Mouth-watering contest awaits as England take on Australia in the First ODI
Jan 14 2018 by Kathy Alvarado
As England tomorrow embark on the first of five one-day internationals against Australia, looking not only to get that Ashes result out of their system but also to continue preparations for next year's World Cup, Bayliss is in a unusual position.
After a humiliating Ashes series against Australia, the visitors will be trying their level best to notch their game standards.
Smith refused to be drawn on their conversation, noting that Maxwell's poor recent ODI record had played a big part in his omission.
However, he has made great strides with the white ball, and Morgan said: "He has been brilliant for us". However, whatever the result be, the excitement among fans has already reached another stratum.
14th January 2018 to 28th January 2018.
Of the 16 players in England's squad, seven were involved in the Ashes, while only four played all five Tests.
Plunkett took two wickets in his nine overs, including CA skipper Matt Renshaw with only his third delivery on tour, and he has no intention of taking a backward step tomorrow.

He has completed 54 percent of his passes when under pressure, yet is sacked only eight percent of the time when pressured. In fact, when Jay Ajayi was still playing for the Dolphins, he broke tackle after tackle against the Atlanta defense.
As such, the European Central Bank will be praying desperately not only for a competitive showing in the upcoming five ODIs against Australia, but also that Test results improve when the circus moves on to New Zealand.
"You can't replace Ben Stokes, but you can go some way to filling his spot with the variety England have got in their limited-overs set-up", said Taylor. The best way to address it is to be on the front foot.
England squad: Eoin Morgan (capt), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood. Further, the pace trio of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins will also be continuing to be a part of ODI setup.
Home advantage and Ashes momentum ensure Australia start as favourites. During the same period, Australia reached 300 12 times in 50 matches, including 10 out of 23 matches batting first. They have become a better side in past year and a half and will produce their best game.
Earlier, captain Matt Renshaw - the only player with senior worldwide experience in the side - blew his best chance to impress Australian selectors ahead of March's tour of South Africa when he was caught behind for 25. "Hopefully, he can have a big impact for us in this series".
"I know he felt as if he didn't quite have the rhythm but, certainly today, his control was magnificent", Morgan said.
