Australia will face the challenge of England in the first match of the ODI series at the Adelaide Oval. Australia are coming into this series, after crashing out of the Super 12 stage, while England will be confident after a title victory in the T20 WC. However, with the change in format, the hosts would look to come up with improved performance and get their confidence back. In their last ODI series, the Aussies secured a 3-0 clean sweep against New Zealand and will aspire to replicate the same performance. On the other hand, England drew their last T20I series 1-1 against Australia. The key players for Australia will be Warner and Adam Zampa, while England will trust the abilities of Jos Buttler and Sam Curran.
