Curran, Overton in England squad for remaining Australia ODIs

Share

Centuries from Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh in addition to 62 from opener Travis Head put Australia in a strong position to put England under huge pressure to chase down a mammoth score. They're playing like the No.1 side in the world for a reason.

By contrast South Africa, when confronted with a then record score of 434 for four by Australia in 50 overs, the first time a team had passed 400 in an ODI, in Johannesburg in 2006, responded with 438 for nine. "Manchester presents a different challenge and different conditions so hopefully we adapt well again".

They average 68.62 for the first wicket, which is 16 runs more than Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes averaged together - albeit in a vastly smaller timeframe than the legendary West Indies pair.

The 31-year-old is only the second Australian bowler to concede a century in a one-day worldwide. Finch fell after scoring 100 while Marsh scored 101 off 92 deliveries.

"Going forward we've got to commit to our plans for longer and if Hales/Roy/Bairstow get away at the top, they're going to have to play really well against good balls". Had Hales, on 17, not been badly missed by Paine off Neser, Australia might have had a chance. Tim Paine's batting and captaincy is a cause for concern and the easiest option available, which could also solve some of their middle-order conundrums, is to bring back George Bailey as skipper.

Tite also denied he had asked Neymar to alter his attacking style to better serve the team after the disappointing draw. Brazil have won nine of their 10 previous internationals against Costa Rica , losing only in a friendly in March 1960.

Willey took the last four wickets, including three in one over, as Australia stumbled from 296-4 at the start of the 48th over to 310 all out.

Alex Carey was drafted in at number five as Aaron Finch returned to the top of the order.

Such has been the imposing form of England's batsmen in recent times that even a target of 311 runs felt highly sub-par.

While that could mean Wood missing out on an worldwide appearance on his home ground in Durham - something he has achieved only once, against New Zealand in 2015 - England's priority will be the long-term fitness of a bowler who exceeded 91 miles per hour at times in Nottingham.

They met in 2012 while shooting their hit TV show, paying on-screen lovers, Wildling Ygritte and Jon Snow . The 23 June date was posted at the Huntly registration office last month.

Yet it took England a mere 37 overs to dismiss Australia at Trent Bridge, with the most bowled by any of their quicks the seven apiece by Wood and Willey.

Roy in particular seemed in ultra-destructive mode as he reached a 82-ball ton with a massive six off Nathan Lyon.

Sam Curran will join Tom Curran, who is already in the squad to face Australia, and the duo could become the first brothers to represent England since Adam and Ben Hollioake in 1999.

"Roy and Bairstow are a frightening prospect".
