Australia and England to shake hands before ODI opener

Moeen picked out long-on and Adil Rashid was needlessly run out at the start of the 49th over, before Safyaan Sharif trapped Mark Wood lbw with a superb, inswinging yorker to end England's innings on 365.

Langer said he would have sleepless nights trying firm up Australia's combination.

But he will make a rare public appearance on June 16 as a guest commentator with Channel 9 for the second ODI between Australia and England. Tim Paine, the newly appointed captain, has been given a young squad, and will look to bring the focus back to cricket in order to kick start preparations for the 2019 World Cup to be held in England.

Ahead of Australia's one-day worldwide meeting with England - their first competitive match since the scandal-ridden tour - Paine asked Eoin Morgan if the teams could have a pre-match handshake on the field.

"The wicket was so good, but it was probably a 330-340 wicket and we just gave them too many runs".

Australia know they must build bridges across the cricketing world in order to fix reputations and trust.

But new skipper Paine continues to insist Australia must prove they can turn over a new leaf, not just discuss it.

"So we get an automatic look at five players we wouldn't have got a look at and we use that to build towards the World Cup in 12 months' time". The circus is about to begin again, but both teams would rather their cricket did the talking over the next two weeks.

Morgan needs 110 runs to overtake Ian Bell as England's leading run-scorer in ODIs.

"Obviously they would have liked to have won the other day but if anything we saw once again just how unsafe their batting can be".

While the hosts sit atop the ICC's ODI rankings - 19 rating points ahead of fifth-placed Australia - they were dealt a reality check by Scotland on Sunday, suffering a shock a six-run loss. They said the major event needed higher level of competitiveness and hence the teams ranked No. 9 and below will have to play the qualifiers.

"It's no good losing the lesson and the game, you've got to take something from it", he added.

Bradburn said following the match the result was a reality check following the highs of their history-making win over England.

We've created an electric atmosphere and it's something we need to do more.

"We know we're going to have to be at our absolute best".
