Aus v Eng highlights today – Fourth one day international from Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street (England) Thursday 21st June 2018. Chester-le-Street can offer more help to the pacemen than some grounds around the country, although the Royal London Cup did feature scores over 300. The forecast is set fair for the day-night game and the match is a sellout, an important boost for a county that has had well-documented struggles of late.
What can Australia do? Shuffling deck-chairs on the Titanic springs to mind. Justin Langer has suggested Nathan Lyon could get a call-up, although that may create issues with the tail. Andrew Tye may need to be benched after a tough couple of games. Aaron Finch’s move to No. 5 hasn’t worked, either. England has bolstered their pace attack by calling up Craig Overton and Sam Curran. Morgan hinted at the potential for changes due to the long journey from Nottingham to Durham and the short turnaround between games. Tom Curran and Jake Ball were already part of the squad, so may get first dibs.
Toss: Australia won and elected to bat first.
