The 27-year-old returned to training on Wednesday after receiving treatment for gastroenteritis, which forced him to retire hurt on the final day in the Sydney defeat that gave Australia a 4-0 test series triumph.

Asked if they might enjoy better results than their Test colleagues, he said: "I hope not".

For what it is worth too, I stand by my initial belief that England should not have appointed Bayliss in the first place and that they made a decision to recruit the wrong Australian.

But the Test captain has finally shaken the bug and will give the tourists a major boost by reclaiming his place in the top order for Sunday's Gillette Series opener.

England suffered a few late hiccups with the quick dismissals of captain Eoin Morgan (1) and Jos Buttler (4).

"I've got a period of time going into the New Zealand series (in March) where I want to get myself clear on how I want to move forward and make sure when we start that tour there is a clear indication of what direction we're going to be going in".

Hales could be involved for the first time since being suspended for his involvement in an incident in Bristol in September, which saw team-mate Ben Stokes arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm.

Trump on Friday did not directly reference using the expletive, but insisted that the language was more generally "tough". Dick Durbin , D-Ill., on changes to the visa lottery program, according to an aide with knowledge of the meeting.

It was Australia's eighth loss from their last nine completed One-Day Internationals (ODI) heightening growing concern over their spiralling 50-over performances.

"I haven't been doing too many things too differently, I had a long net session yesterday with a couple of the coaches and was playing the ball a lot later but other than that all my routines have been pretty similar since I've started".

"You need an impact bowler and hopefully throughout the series they can produce impact spells". Bairstow had been the man to replace Roy for the semi-final of the Champions Trophy: in six innings he has scored 345 runs including two centuries so isn't going anywhere. Robin Smith's unbeaten 167 against the Australians at Edgbaston in 1993 had long stood as the high water mark, but Roy said 200 was no longer out of the question. "I think we've got ourselves closer and closer, we're edging ourselves towards the 200".

"I kind of turned away because I did feel as if I might have been outside the line", Roy said. The doctor was with me for most of that period and he chose to get us to the hospital and see what they could do about it. This is England's seventh successful chase of a 300-plus target, of which five have happened since the 2015 World Cup.

Australia were powerless to prevent England strolling to victory with seven balls remaining and will reflect upon their innings with the bat being the key to their demise.

"Incredible from Jason. He's quite imposing as a batsman", Morgan said. "Hopefully, that'll show in the coming months".
