Shock loss to Scots will worry England, says Agar

Eoin Morgan scored a 69-ball hundred for Middlesex against Gloucestershire on Wednesday

The crowds will nearly certainly get involved, with sandpaper references already visible during the preceding Test series with Pakistan.

Australia will face their first worldwide action since March's shameful ball- doctoring incident when taking on England at The Oval on Wednesday.

The match is scheduled to begin at 8pm (PST) and 4pm on BST.

Australia's talk of the "line" was as ubiquitous as it was much-maligned and even toxic during the Ashes, so there was a fair degree of schadenfreude when their misdeeds in South Africa were exposed.

But Paine concedes Australia must prove they are reformed characters.

The series consists of 5 ODIs and one T20I.

Former Durham and Warwickshire batsman MacLeod said Scotland's first worldwide cricket win over England was a "massive statement".

Tyson Fury to fight again in August after victory over Sefer Seferi
I fell out of love with the game but now the love is thriving, we are back on fire for one another. "But I need rounds". Fury has been away from the ring for so long that curiosity is bound to be strong.

England's seam bowling in Scotland looked thin without Stokes and Chris Woakes, leaving Morgan short of options as boundaries were being flayed by Calum MacLeod.

England, after the end of a wonderful opening stand, rallied again, thanks to a 71-run eighth-wicket partnership between Moeen Ali (46, 33b, 3×4, 3×6) and Liam Plunkett (47 n o, 45b, 3×4, 2×6). England's batting is often able to match whatever the opposition puts up - but it is a high-risk strategy. England would have been favourites had the quintet been available but are more overwhelmingly so now.

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

"We're always trying to get someone to stick their hand up and we always celebrate each other's success", MacLeod told Sky Sports during the break between innings.

England will welcome back Jos Buttler, who was rested for Edinburgh, but are still without the injured Stokes and Woakes. Indeed, Langer claimed that sledging is in Australia's DNA but warned: "There's a difference between banter and abuse". He has suggested he prefers the extra bowling option and Maxwell's poor form could leave him vulnerable if Finch takes a middle-order role. The forecast for Tuesday is warm and cloudy, but don't expect the white Kookaburra to swing.

Australia's last ODI victory at The Oval came in 2010. "Best way to provide great exposure".

"You could say maybe [the squad is weakened] slightly without that 150kph Mitchell Starc coming in, but you have another 150kph in Billy Stanlake. if you take out 100 one-day wickets or whatever Starcy has, it will change things a little bit, but it's a great chance for Billy to show his stuff, bowl 150ks and hopefully rip through them".

"We need to continue what we have been doing and continue improving though".
