Eoin Morgan defends Trevor Bayliss before one-day series against Australia

Morgan defends Bayliss ahead of Australia ODI series

England were thrashed 4-0 in the five-Test Ashes series by Australia but have had better results in the 50-over format.

Roy's 180 now remains the highest individual score at this iconic venue of MCG.

But Hales's suspension after the incident that led to Ben Stokes's arrest earned Roy a reprieve for the last two ODIs of the summer against the West Indies, and he took his chance with 84 at the Oval and 96 at Southampton.

Roy was given out lbw to Adam Zampa on 91 but immediately called for a review, and the decision was overturned after replays showed it was pitching outside the line. Apart from him, Davi Warner, skipper Steve Smith and Travis Head failed to get a good score.

They will be the key to Australia's success with the bat, but then, England also have problems with the stick.

This was England's 35th win in 53 ODIs under Bayliss, who has lost 18 of his 38 Tests in charge.

A slower ball bouncer from Starc eventually saw Roy dismissed but it did little to delay the England victory - despite Eoin Morgan being dismissed for just one and Joe Buttler for four - with Moeen Ali [5 not out] hitting the winning runs to complete a comfortable win.

Finch was the main contributor with his score of 107, while there were half-centuries for Marcus Stoinis and Mitchell Marsh, as Yorkshire quick Liam Plunkett finished with three wickets.

HollywoodLifers , are you excited that Kylie might be in labor? " Kylie and Travis came in right after the lunch rush". However, turns out she has a good reason - she's recharging. "There's too much secrecy around it", Ellen said.

Finch - who sealed a 112-ball century with the third of his sixes, off Rashid and over long-on - shared a stand of 118 with Marsh for the fourth wicket, with his departure in the 36th over and Marsh's two overs later preventing Australia getting somewhere nearer 350. I don't really have too many words right now but it was just a huge honour to be out there for England again and get some runs on the board.

305 - The highest total chased at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, eclipsing the previous mark of 297 achieved by Australia against England in the 2011 series.

"It was a tough season last season so to be selected this time was incredibly special".

Steve Smith joined Aaron Finch at the crease at the fall of the Warner wicket and just as the pair started to build a solid partnership, Adil Rashid struck to remove Smith for 23. It sums up the character of the bloke, coming back in.

But it is so hard for white ball specialists like Roy to play enough first-class cricket to be considered for the Test side.

England are scheduled to play five one-day internationals against Australia followed by a Twenty20 tri-series with the hosts and New Zealand which starts on 3 February.

"If we got 340, 350 that's what we were after". They played some good cricket for that period there. We tried to peg them back and take wickets but it wasn't to be.
