They will be the key to Australia's success with the bat, but then, England also have problems with the stick. While calls for his position to be reviewed were met with resistance by the European Central Bank chairman, Colin Graves, and the chief executive, Tom Harrison, Bayliss revealed he will not be seeking a new deal when his contract expires at the end of the 2019 summer.

One thing that limited overs teams need less time to worry about is the prospect of conditions overly favouring the hosts. But to bridge the gap between where we were at in that World Cup and, say, being in the semi-final or the final was the first port of the call.

The coach has been criticised for overseeing just 15 victories in 38 Tests at the helm, but has proved far more successful in the shorter formats by guiding the team to the final of the World Twenty20 in 2016 and the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy semifinals.

This week the vice-captain, Jos Buttler, praised Bayliss for liberating England.

"He has been brilliant for us".

Their only options, if they were to sack him, would be to do so at the end of this winter (to do so next summer would surely be a risk too far in respect of those World Cup aspirations) or else go down the split coaching route and have a separate head of the Test team, a path that the governing body are understood to be reluctant to take. Australia may go into the opener at the MCG as favourites but Morgan has vowed to stick to the approach Bayliss has cultivated.

"We are going in with the mantra that we always need to be on top of our game and testing the opposition the whole time". What a wicket. It was a bit wide with a hint of turn.

"I think we'll see some very entertaining cricket and there's some good talent on show". We are very open-minded with the way we are going. Ben Stokes is the exception, of course.

Hales was suspended over his involvement in the alleged incident outside a Bristol nightclub in September.

As such, the European Central Bank will be praying desperately not only for a competitive showing in the upcoming five ODIs against Australia, but also that Test results improve when the circus moves on to New Zealand. He has been named in the T20 squad for the tri-series with Australia and New Zealand, as well as the Test series against the latter which takes place in March.

"Joe is good and should be fit to play tomorrow", Morgan told reporters. He's a huge part of our side so we're desperate for him to be fit and well. Andrew Strauss, our director of cricket, gave absolute clarity in what we wanted.

Morgan is not expected to make a decision on a potential return for Alex Hales until the day of the first ODI in Melbourne on Sunday. "It creates a lot more calm around the periphery". An internal European Central Bank disciplinary hearing will not take place until Stokes's legal case has concluded, which has allowed Hales to return to global duty.
