Australia coach Justin Langer believes his team has regained the respect of global cricket after the ball-tampering scandal of 2018 that shattered the country's reputation.
Aussie cricketer David Warner was one of three players suspended for the 2018 ball tampering scandal. "If I get the chance I'll be trying to prove that I've got the skills".
World Cup-winning fast bowlers Jofra Archer and Mark Wood will provide extra firepower to an attack still without star all-rounder Ben Stokes, who remains on compassionate leave while he spends time with his ill father.
"They've been the best one-day team in the world for a few years now".
"It's a very different format, a very different game". If you can start the ball rolling it gives them something to think about whatever the format'.
The last time the sides met in white-ball cricket was in last year's World Cup semi-final, when England stormed to an eight-wicket victory at a typically raucous Edgbaston.
"It's not my style to shout and scream. So, if you're to go on that I'd probably say they're just favourites", Morgan told reporters on the eve of the match.
"Sometimes you don't get the answer you're looking for". "I got smacked to every part of South Africa and the ball landed in every part of that country".
"We came here with a very young team because of the circumstances and by gosh it put hairs on their chest". He then joined Wisden Online in 2001, and soon graduated from put-upon photocopier to a writer with a penchant for comment and cricket on the subcontinent.
Speaking of Bairstow, while the 30-year old player is an established opener in ODIs, he hasn't delivered according to his potential in T20Is. I'm under a little bit of pressure here to prove that I deserve to be in the side because we've got a lot of depth and a lot of good bowlers. 'I bowled alright in that first Test and averaged 89 miles per hour over 20 overs which was pleasing after not playing for so long. I've got to do a lot of improvement if I want to get into that team because I didn't do myself justice there.
Meanwhile, Australia coach Justin Langer believes his side's crushing 5-0 one-day defeat to England two years ago helped them recover from the cheating scandal in South Africa that led to lengthy bans for Warner and former captain Steve Smith.
But, it wouldn't be an easy ride for sure, considering they will be up against a full-strength Australian side, which now holds the No.1 spot in the World T20I rankings. The team had made a bad error in judgment in South Africa and we all paid a price for that. The statement comes just before England play a bilateral series against Australia. It was that one last punch from Mother Cricket, saying, 'You guys made a mistake and we'll make sure you guys remember it'.
"The team had made a bad judgment in South Africa and, individually and collectively, we paid the price", Langer said in a video call from the team's training base in Southampton. We know what to expect and we'll be ready'.
