Eoin Morgan defends Trevor Bayliss before one-day series against Australia


The Australians will be overly confident after their 4-0 demolition job in the recently completed Ashes. 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.

During the Ashes, England were unbalanced by the absence of all-rounder Ben Stokes, who remains unavailable while he waits to find out if he will be charged after being arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm outside a Bristol nightclub in September.

0825 hrs IST: England have won the toss and they have elected to bowl against Australia in Melbourne.

"You got to be smart and adaptable to the conditions and try to play the type of cricket we normally play", he said.

It is unlikely that Australia will tinker with their opening combination as David Warner will be accompanied by the man-in-form Aaron Finch.

However, the Victorian's departure, and that of Marsh soon afterwards, left it to Marcus Stoinis to produce the end-of-innings pyrotechnics.

Bayliss led England to the World T20 final and to the Champions Trophy semi-final and has overseen significant improvements in the one-day game. The doctor was with me for most of that period and he made a decision to get us to the hospital and see what they could do about it.

He also took the most out of the situation pointing out what he thinks of Sanchez. Some Manchester United fans will be getting giddy at the latest twist.

He said: "I know they had a hard run with weather in the Champions Trophy, they didn't even complete a full game against us, and certainly that was a struggle for them".
