Smith clears concussion test, available for 2nd ODI against England

Hazlewood took a miserly 3-26 from his maximum 10 overs that stifled England's pursuit of a target of 295 from the outset, removing opener Jason Roy and Test skipper Joe Root for single figure scores as the hosts limped to 22-2 off the first 10 overs.

The empty September Trafford at Old Trafford didn't feel like a way to reunite with the World Cup and England were level enough on the night, with Australia winning the three-match ODI series 1-0 by 19 runs. The right-handed batsman smashed his maiden ODI hundred but eventually got out after scoring 118 runs on the final ball of the match. "They played two really smart, mature innings and I'm really happy for them two to get some runs". "I was lucky to get a couple of early ones and keep them under pressure".

England's team featured nine survivors from both an eight-wicket semi-final win over Australia - their last ODI clash against their arch-rivals - and the final itself.

Australia batsman Steve Smith is set to return for Sunday's second one-day global against England after passing a second concussion test.

This is the first of a three-match ODI series that marks the end of England's home worldwide season, with all 18 scheduled fixtures set to be played, albeit behind closed doors, despite the coronavirus pandemic.

The question of which Australian city the touring party will return to - and whether they will be able to hit the nets while in quarantine - had been unresolved until Saturday.

While Marsh ticked over, Maxwell wasted little time in getting into his stride, and moved to 50 two balls after hitting Rashid for a huge six over midwicket. The next ball after his second six earned Maxwell his 20th ODI fifty.

The Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 11 a.m., with the National Weather Service warning of hazardous driving conditions.

Earlier during the 2019 Ashes series, Smith was hit on the neck by a Jofra Archer bouncer at Lord's.

Archer was the recipient of similar treatment for back-to-back sixes in the 44th over, yet he had his revenge the next ball when Maxwell dragged a slower delivery onto his stumps. Root, in particular, was worked over by the fast bowler before his nearly inevitable demise.

Zampa then removed Morgan (23) and dangerman Jos Buttler in quick succession, the latter to a fine running catch by Marnus Labuschagne.

But he was out when a mistimed a lofted drive off Zampa was well caught by Hazlewood, running in from wide long-on.

When will the England vs Australia 1st ODI begin?

As per reports, SACA Chief Executive Keith Bradshaw feels it will be a great moment for them to assist the Australian men's cricket team in their series lined up in the future in South Australia.

"I'm obviously very pleased, but in a losing cause it's mixed feelings", Billings said.
