Aussies to adopt mark of respect for England ODI series

Disgraced Australia opener David Warner set to return … in the commentary box

Disgraced Australia opener David Warner set to return … in the commentary box

"Words are words, come Wednesday, it's time for us to act on those words and show it by actions".

Not only have former Australia captain Steve Smith and his deputy David Warner - two of the world's best one-day batsmen - been given year-long bans for their role in the ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town in March - but Australia are also without their injured Ashes-winning fast-bowling trio of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood.

Jonny Bairstow has insisted England can cope with the pressure of being the world's top-ranked one-day worldwide side as they head into a five-match series against Australia on the back of a shock six-run defeat by Scotland.

The left-hander denied it was a reality check, but admitted they deserved to lose.

Captain Eoin Morgan said that the defeat will act as ideal preparation for the series, and Bairstow agreed that it will be a completely different challenge to face an Australia side going through an uncertain period following the suspension of two key players and a change in leadership.

"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". 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.

Trump After Kim Summit
Asked by Van Susteren about human rights abuses, Trump replied: "Look, he's doing what he's seen done, if you look at it". There was some confusion in the USA over precisely what military cooperation Mr Trump had promised to halt.

"We didn't do enough to win, if we had won it would have been a bonus given the position we got ourselves in".

Scotland's victory will send out a powerful message to the ICC, which voted to restrict the 2019 World Cup to 10 teams from the previous 14, which makes it far more hard for second-tier sides to qualify.

A combination of a controversial umpiring decision - with no review system in place - and rain saw them just miss out in the qualifying tournament in Zimbabwe.

England one-day captain Morgan has agreed to the request, but only for the opening game of the five-match series.

Former Durham and Warwickshire batsman MacLeod said Scotland's first worldwide cricket win over England was a "massive statement".

"We want more games. It's important for the game to have a strong Australia side - we're more than happy to shake hands if that creates a different image for people".
