Summary

England and Australia face-off in a five-match ODI series and a one-off T20I in June. Australia’s England tour kicks-off with ODI series, first of which starts on June 13. While home side England will be looking to bounce back from the shock defeat against Scotland earlier this week, Australia will be looking to rekindle after the ball-tampering scandal that saw them lose some Steven Smith and David Warner due to the one-year suspensions.

 

Meanwhile, England captain Eoin Morgan is confident that his side can learn the lessons of their shock six-run loss to Scotland in Edinburgh on Sunday in time for the series against Australia. "A one-off game like this, to bring your best game is very difficult to do, they played well and deserved the result. "It's not the end of the world for us, it was a really good run out and good to have a practice coming into the series against Australia. The level of expectation has been high around the team for a while, it doesn't get higher than being number one in the world, said Morgan.

 

"I don't think we were far away, we go to a ground now that we know really well in The Oval, and we'll be up for the challenge." Morgan, however, accepted they had been well below the standard needed to win in what was their first 50-over match of the British season.

 

"We were miles off where we expect to be and didn't do enough to win. The way we played, we didn't deserve to win it. We might have scraped past them and won, but there were still quite a few mistakes made that we need to rectify and learn from ahead of the Australia series. We didn't do enough to win if we had won it would have been a bonus from where we were," added the former Ireland batsman.
