Aaron Finch says “it looks a decent wicket, might slow up with the sun out later on”. Australia playing XI are unchanged, although Finch concedes they may look to change things up with the order according to the match situation. Eoin Morgan says England wanted to bowl, so “no objections”. Same XI for the men in red, too. “Nice to be 1-0 up but a lot of improvement to be made today,” Morgan adds.
