Watch Online Australia vs England 1st ODI Highlights, 14 January 2018. Steven Smith’s home side are entering the series with the dual needs to find a settled side and also re-establish the way they wish to play, having looked a long way off the pace of the world’s pre-eminent limited overs nations for most of 2017. Middle order collapses were central to winning only five of 15 matches last year, and to that end they have dispensed with the services of Glenn Maxwell and Matthew Wade. Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis and the recalled Cameron White are set to compete for two batting berths, while Tim Paine has the chance to revive his limited-overs career in the same way he has come back into the Test team.
England, meanwhile, made an immediate and dramatic change from the stodgy fare they produced for the 2015 World Cup in adopting a far more fearless approach with the bat in particular. Though they were unable to carry that through to a home victory in the Champions Trophy, Eoin Morgan’s team have rather more confidence in themselves in all conditions than the Test team does. Importantly they have greater pace to call on from Mark Wood and Liam Plunkett, and Joe Root can be expected to bat with his old vim now unburdened by the pressures of captaincy.
