Talking of allrounders, England will be hoping that the one-day series can help Moeen escape the funk the surrounded him for much of the Ashes.

Indeed, with head coach Trevor Bayliss set to leave when his contract expires next September, Morgan offered tentative support for the return of a split backroom team - with one man in charge of Test cricket and another overseeing the white-ball unit.

Australia: Steven Smith (capt), David Warner, Pat Cummins, Aaron Finch, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh, Tim Paine (wk), Jhye Richardson, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Cameron White, Adam Zampa.
