    After winning the toss and opting to bat first, there was a big surprise as Australian skipper Pat Cummins was not part of the playing 11 and instead right-arm pacer Josh Hazlewood is back in the side as the captain for this second ODI match against England. After Aaron Finch announced his retirement from 50-overs cricket, Cricket Australia (CA) appointed Cummins as the new ODI captain and he also registered impressive figures of 3 for 62 in the opening encounter against England. However, the speedster has now been rested for the 2nd game while Hazlewood has taken over the captaincy duties and Steve Smith is the vice-captain.

    “We just think this wicket might deteriorate throughout the game. It’s very exciting [to captain]. I rested the first game and had the good idea of having a watch and seeing how Patty went about his business. It’s sort of a wider leadership group. I’m standing in for this game. Mitch Marsh is coming as well,” said Australia skipper Josh Hazlewood during the toss.
