England vs Australia 1st ODI Match Preview

AUSTRALIA kick off a fresh era under new captain Tim Paine at The Oval on Wednesday (10pm AEST), confident their team of rookies can shock England in the five-match ODI series.

The hosts boast a woeful one-day record against Australia, winning just 52 of the 142 matches between the two nations.

However, they are the No.1 ranked 50-over team in the world and been transformed under the captaincy of Eoin Morgan after their shambolic showing at the 2015 World Cup.
