Early Australia Day fireworks set up win

In Sydney a full-strength Australia was armed with their frontline pace attack for the first time in the series

Hazlewood adds, That first 10 overs is probably the key time to take those wickets.

"It has been pretty much a dream summer - a summer I couldn't have hoped for really", Cummins said after his career-best one-day worldwide figures of 4-24 in Australia's three-wicket win against England on Friday.

He became the fourth batsman dismissed for a globe in the innings, leaving England 5-8.

Despite the early losses of David Warner (13), Cameron White (3) and skipper Steve Smith (4), Head peeled off a half-century from 55 balls. Head was dropped after the first two matches of the current series, but previous year against Pakistan he made his maiden ODI century on Australia Day at Adelaide, so has fond memories of the occasion.

So he's as surprised as anyone to have played in all five Tests and three of the four one-dayers against England. Andrew Tye, too, contributed a serviceable spell featuring his first ODI wickets, though Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis and Adam Zampa were somewhat less unsafe.

A few more came out the middle in Adelaide, as well, as he nearly single-handedly restored some respectability to England's innings, with a little help from Surrey's Tom Curran in only his second one-day worldwide.

Australia rested Hazlewood for the first ODI and then Cummins for the second, and the hosts could not find a way to dominate their opposition with the ball.

Joe Root, perhaps, will look back regretfully at his top-edged pull shot to his seventh ball, though he may also point to his average of 72 since the start of 2017.

I believe in the years to come he will be more of a batting all-rounder for England, the type of player to come in at No6 or No7 and really take the game away from the opposition.

But in Sydney on Sunday they readjusted to a two-paced pitch and proved there is more than one way to a 300-run total, with Jos Buttler playing the best ODI innings of his career. The resultant breathing room allowed Morgan and Moeen Ali to raise a 50 stand, before the return of Cummins and an excellent short ball had Morgan gloving down the leg side.

It means Australia have won just one of their last 11 completed one-day games.

Did England drastically improve, or did Australia absolutely capitulate when they switched from Tests to white ball cricket?

Smith has scored just 86 runs at a strike rate of 78 in three games.

Earlier, the two sides played the first ever day-and-night Test in the same ground which Australia went on to win on the last day.

Australia opener Travis Head, after hitting 96: "It was fantastic to win".
