Jason Roy’s grand innings of 180 runs off 151 balls and Joe Root’s 91 runs helped England to earn victory in previous ODI. Steven Smith’s subsequent admission that England currently lead the way in a format they have traditionally accorded second-class status was noteworthy largely for its candour. Australia are the World Cup holders but, on recent form, not among the leading pack when it comes to contesting the trophy in England next year. The ease with which their total of 304 for 8 was reeled in on Sunday was indicative of both their shortcomings with the bat and the efficacy of England’s ultra-aggressive approach.

The obvious imperative for Australia to raise their tempo, conceded by David Warner, was then met with a stony response from Jonny Bairstow: “They can go out and copy what we do but it might not work for them So just saying ‘oh we’re going to try and do that’, that’s something that we’ve been working on for the last 18 months.”

To further complicate matter for Smith, a sickness bug has affected the Australia camp, with Josh Hazlewood ruled out of the Gabba ODI and wicketkeeper Tim Paine also struggling; the uncapped Alex Carey has been called up as cover. With Pat Cummins also being rested for this match, Jhye Richardson could be handed a debut.
