Australia vs England, 1st ODI, Live Updates

Dawid Malan smashed a ton to drive England to 287/9 against Australia in the first ODI of the three-match series. For Australia, Adam Zampa scalped three wickets, including thebig scalp of Malan for 134. Apart from Zampa, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, and Marcus Stoinis have taken wickets, so far. Australia skipper Pat Cummins admitted on Wednesday that Australia have a point to prove after their failure at the T20 World Cup, with champions England in their sights in a one-day series this week. Australia went into the World Cup as defending champions but failed to go beyond the group phase, in contrast to Jos Buttler's men who powered to the title with a gripping win against Pakistan on Sunday. They face England in three one-dayers, starting in Adelaide before moving to Sydney on Saturday and then Melbourne three days later, the scene of England's five-wicket victory over Pakistan.

Pat Cummins-led Australian team will take on newly crowned T20 World Champions England in the first of three ODIs at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday (November 17). The series will be build-up for both sides in the lead up to the 50-over ODI World Cup in India next year.
Travis Head will replace retired former skipper Aaron Finch as the new opener along side David Warner in the first ODI. With Glenn Maxwell getting injured in a freak accident and breaking his leg, all-rounders Marcus Stoinis and Cameron Green will bolster the middle-order.
For England, all-rounder Ben Stokes remains retired from the 50-over format for now. But James Vince and Sam Billings will be looking to bolster their chances of securing a permanent berth in the defending ODI champions’ line-up. Fast bowler Olly Stone is set to return to the side as well playing his first ODI in four years while T20 World Cup 2022 ‘Player of the Tournament’ Sam Curran will look to continue his fine form in the ODI series as well.

Pitch and conditions

Sunny conditions are forecast in Adelaide with a maximum temperature of 23 degrees, which is set to aid the normally batting-friendly pitch at a ground marked by short square boundaries. Bowlers generally aim for a fuller length to force batters to hit to the longer straight boundaries, while turn is usually evident.
