The three-match one-day internationals start today at Manchester and is part of the ICC’s ODI Super League.

The ODI starts at 1pm BST today – can Eoin Morgan’s men pull of a repeat of the T20? World Champions England beat their arch rivals 2-1 in a thriller but the Aussie will go into today’s ODI in buoyant mood having taken the final T20 match by five runs.
That said, there’s good news for England: opener Jason Roy will be available for the first ODI. Batsmen Joe Root and Chris Woakes have returned to the squad, and wicketkeeper Jos Buttler is also available. Captain Morgan suffered a finger injury during the T20 on on Tuesday but he’s due to lead the team out today.
“Australia are normally one of the best sides in the world and this time is no different,” Morgan told BBC Sport. “It has always been a tough contest over the years, as it should be.”
Australia will be led out by Aaron Finch and have plenty of talent at their disposal, including exciting uncapped players such as Josh Philippe, Riley Meredith and Daniel Sams. Can the the new boys bolster Australia’s chances of winning the first 50-overs match since the ICC World Cup 2019 semi-final clash, which England won?
