For England, the baton has been handed over to ODI skipper Eoin Morgan and the recognisable absentee from the group is Ben Stokes.

While the recently concluded Ashes series unfolded at an attritional pace, both sides are likely to approach the next five games in a more cavalier fashion.

Bayliss this week confirmed his intention to step down after the 2019 Ashes, England having surrendered the urn to Australia in a 4-0 series defeat.

BBC Sport looks at why England can be considered favourites to win the series less than two years on from their miserable World Cup showing.

"I'd like to prove a point to everyone, to my team-mates and the media, that I can be that X-factor bowler they want", said Durham bowler Wood, who spent the winter with the England Lions.

The five-match ODI series between Australia and England gets underway on January 14 in Melbourne.

However, Kevin Pietersen had other plans and chose to put up a fight against the formidable Australian bowling attack.

Ballance did not feature in the series, Ball featured only in the first test and Curran was a late addition to the squad before turning out in Melbourne and Sydney.

"The middle order's probably where we've had a bit of an issue", Smith said.

Michigan State leads Michigan 37-34 at halftime
Michigan State wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 14 points from turnovers, compared to Maryland's 18. The Maryland women's basketball team was bound to fall to a Big Ten Conference team besides Ohio State at some point.

"Ben is a fantastic player", said Morgan.

Hales is free to play again after being cleared over his involvement in the Stokes incident.

England finally has something to smile about after ending a 61-day run without a win and Moeen Ali enjoying his best day of the tour so far in their one-day warm-up match.

Indeed, with head coach Trevor Bayliss set to leave when his contract expires next September, Morgan offered tentative support for the return of a split backroom team - with one man in charge of Test cricket and another overseeing the white-ball unit.

"I get on really well with Glenn and it was good to catch up and have a chat".

Maxwell, who averages 32 with the bat and nearly 39 with the ball, was again overlooked for 34-year-old Cameron White when Chris Lynn was forced out through injury.

"Being picked for the squad is great, but I know there's a lot more work to do to earn a place in the team", said the Cumbrian, whose selection has gone down especially well in his home town of Barrow-in-Furness.

Australia squad: Steve Smith (C), David Warner, Pat Cummins, Aaron Finch, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh, Tim Paine (wk), Jhye Richardson, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Cameron White, Adam Zampa.
