England get early breakthrough against Australia

Agar is returning to Australia's ODI team in England

Australia captain Tim Paine won the toss and elected to bat against England in the first one-day global at The Oval on Wednesday - the tourists" first worldwide match since their "ball-tampering' series in South Africa.

"We're going to bat first", said Paine at the toss.

England skipper Eoin Morgan added: "I would have bowled first".

Morgan has agreed to the request, but the practice will only happen for Wednesday's opening encounter of the five-match series.

Wednesday's day/night fixture was Justin Langer's first global match as Australia coach after he succeeded Darren Lehmann following his fellow former Test batsman's resignation in South Africa.

England confirmed one change to the side that lost so famously against Scotland at the weekend, with Jos Buttler returning in the middle order in place of Sam Billings, who has been released, along with Jake Ball, to play for Kent and Nottinghamshire respectively in tomorrow's Royal London Cup quarter-final.

Warner was banned from Australian cricket for 12 months for his role in the ball-tampering scandal alongside captain Steve Smith and bowler Cameron Bancroft. We want cricket to be as popular as ever.

Asked what the chat in the dressing room had been in the wake of the Scotland defeat, Morgan said: "Keep things simple, go back to basics a little bit. It's important for the game to have a strong Australia side - we're more than happy to shake hands if that creates a different image for people". We'll be judged exclusively on our actions going forward.

"It's now about living our actions, we've spoken about internally about our values as a team and how we want to be perceived by the Australian public and by the cricket public in general". But words are words and on Wednesday we have to show them in our actions. England too will be looking to get back to winning ways after they suffered a shock six-run defeat at the hands of Scotland recently.

"It's part and parcel of the game", he explained.

England enjoyed a 4-1 series win over Australia "Down Under" earlier this year but will be confronted by a new-look side in London.
