Australia v England: Joe Root fit after recovering from illness

Alex Hales

But 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.

Since Bayliss took over in May 2015, England have won only 15 of his 38 Tests in charge (along with 18 losses and five draws). - Former Yorkshire head coach, Jason Gillespie, is now in charge of Sussex. 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. "After that, a line was drawn in the sand and we were given clear directives that the goal was the 2019 World Cup. I'm sure he will rest up and try and get his energy back".

The ECB, however, finds itself in a hard position, for to remove Bayliss now would be to risk so much of the good work that he has done in the white-ball formats. But they're a very strong team, certainly at home.

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.

A dejected Marcus Mariota stood at the podium on Saturday night, his ankles still taped, and disappointed etched on his face. In fact, these extraordinarily large age gaps between QBs in the playoffs are rare and have always favored the older player.

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

But there is already disquiet in some quarters that with so much emphasis on how best to prepare for the next Ashes series in Australia in 2021, two years of planning will effectively be put in place by a coach who will not be there to see the job through, and whose successor might have different ideas anyway. "To be honest I haven't looked at them a great deal, not until the last month or so", Morgan said.

"He feels that whenever he's had a break in the last couple of years, it's always been a T20 series".

Traditionally, Australians are used to England rolling out a staid and workmanlike 50-over team but things have markedly changed. "I don't know why this is news".

He said: "Very good - unbelievable facilities, the prince's private facilities are better than any football club in the world". French side Paris St-Germain have also been linked with Chile forward but Sanchez's preference is to join Manchester City .

Morgan has been delighted by the progress England have made under Bayliss since the 2015 World Cup saying they have improved a lot faster than anyone thought they would. On one hand, the hosts will be hoping to continue their dream stint and on the other, the visitors, whose tryst with batting experiment nearly blew up in their faces, will be looking to shrug aside their struggles and approach the ODIs like they have been doing from previous year and a half.

Bayliss's laid-back approach has fitted in well with a group of young, exciting players who have shone in an environment that has promoted aggression and flair.

England had previously employed different limited overs and Test match coaches when Andy Flower delegated the shorter forms to Ashley Giles before returning to a more conventional model, but Morgan believes that the days of one coach fitting all roles are running short.

The series against Australia will be interesting if only to see how England respond to the Ashes defeat. Smith has got an inside edge.
