Root feeling better ahead of ODI series


A stomach bug continues to affect David Warner but the Australian vice-captain is expected to play in Sunday's one-day worldwide series opener against England.

Opener Mark Stoneman and off-spinning allrounder Moeen Ali are also under pressure after struggling against a rampant Australia in a 4-0 series hammering.

In his first top-flight senior game, the 17-year-old lifted his fourth ball over third man for six off Wood and struck three more maximums before Rashid had him stumped for 59. Warner finished the Ashes in red-hot form and has a stellar ODI record, particularly at home.

Major League Baseball champions Astros land Cole in trade with Pirates
Cole is coming off a career-worst ERA at 4.26 in 203 innings pitched, but he remains one of the hardest throwers in the game. Even with those lackluster stats last season, Cole is the kind of pitcher the Astros can afford to take a chance on.

'Obviously there was an issue and he knows what he did was wrong and certainly I think he's learnt his lesson coming back into the side, ' said the skipper.

'I've been chomping at the bit, ' he said after a winter spent working back from heel and ankle problems with the Lions. Smith previously stated that Maxwell was dropped in part because his training habits were not up to worldwide standards and the pair were snapped clearing the air at a cafe in Melbourne on Friday.

Baird and their recent target price per share indicates a potential downside of -8.01 % from the company's previous close. The business earned $2.47 billion during the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $3.08 million.

"We got a huge amount of confidence from the selectors and Andrew Strauss, our director of cricket, gave absolute clarity in what we wanted".

There's a chance England will not see the trio of Australian quicks who hassled them during the Ashes together during the one-day series. "We are going with the mantra that we always need to be on top of our game and testing the opposition the whole time". They're good one-day bowlers and a good one-day outfit so it's a good challenge. The absence of Glenn Maxwell from the one-day squad provoked much debate, then the man preferred to him, Chris Lynn, pulled out injured and his replacement created nearly as much debate again: a recall for the 34-year-old Cameron White. "Davey (Warner) has been exceptional in one-day cricket opening for the past few years, Finchy (Aaron Finch) played well in the last series in India".

That is likely to leave Marcus Stoinis, Mitch Marsh and Cameron White to compete for the two remaining spots in a middle order that Smith identified as a key area of focus. "That's something we haven't done, and something we need to work on".
