Probable XI: Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Jos Buttler (wk), Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett.

Had Bayliss not been brought in with the 2019 World Cup so strongly in mind, with that marquee competition being played on English soil, a witch-hunt might already have burned him at the stake. However, the 50-over format battle is expected to be far more competitive and closely fought than much hyped underwhelming 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 a year ago and a half. 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 and bridging that gap came quicker that we ever thought it would. After racking up a staggering amount of runs during the Tests, he will again lead the side in the ODIs and the question of how to get him out will continue to haunt the English attack. "It's not often you get free rein and ambition to be adventurous as you like".

Traditionally, Australians are used to England rolling out a staid and workmanlike 50-over team but things have markedly changed. He really looks after people and gives them confidence.

The woman who was the original target of the plot was told about the scheme, but has turned down an offer of protective services. It turns out that the victim was mistaken for the target of a murder-for-hire plot, Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson said.

"Ben is a fantastic player".

With the baton handed over to Eoin Morgan for the one-day Internationals, the lacklustre Test tour can turn into somewhat crackerjack of a contest in the coloured clothing. "To be honest I haven't looked at them a great deal, not until the last month or so", Morgan said. Like most nations, they have also been strong at home and suffered few losses while playing against India.

Jason Gillespie, the then Yorkshire coach and the new coach of Sussex, might not have had a CV scattered with white-ball trophies, but he has played at the highest level, has won two County Championships with Yorkshire and knows the county game inside out, while his man-management skills are second to none. "TB has been brilliant", England's limited-overs captain said. ODI pitches are seldom too far divergent from solid batting surfaces with fast outfields, even if heavy rain in Melbourne might ensure the need to run hard on the expanses of the MCG. "We've certainly tempered our aggression with some smart cricket", he said. More importantly, the wickets that we've played on, we've adapted to them.
