    Australia aim for a rebuild

    England are on the Australia tour since October. The English men played a three-match T20I series against the hosts and won the series 2-0, with the match being abandoned. Their bilateral success was followed by the T20 World Cup triumph against Pakistan in Melbourne.

    Australia, by the way, couldn’t qualify for knockout games and were ruled out of the tournament, earlier than expected. Though the format will now be different, the team will be keen to get back on track, as exactly a year later, 50-over World Cup will arrive.

    Besides, after this first Australia vs England ODI, the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) will host the second match on November 19. And the ultimate derby of the series will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), on November 22.
