England v Australia: Adil Rashid targets 5-0 success

Adjust Comment Print

England put themselves on course for this first whitewash over Australia in any format, dating back through nearly 140 years of Ashes rivalry, when Moeen Ali's career-best four for 46 helped to bowl the tourists out in just 34.4 overs.

The team under Virat Kohli know their roles to perfection and in MS Dhoni, India is blessed to have a player in the XI with so much captaincy experience at the worldwide level.

"He's someone for our batters to watch and see first hand".

Australia captain Tim Paine insisted the reigning champions would be "right in the thick of" next year's World Cup despite a 5-0 one-day worldwide series loss to 2019 hosts England.

Travis Head (56) was the only batsman in the innings to pass fifty, with D Arcy Short left stranded on 47 not out.

NATHAN LYON 5 - Australia's spin spearhead was picked for the last two ODIs after warming the bench at the start but he was unable to stamp his authority in the limited-overs game with just one wicket to show for his troubles.

Paine further cast doubt over his one-day worldwide future following the romping.

Jackson was also the father of Joh'Vonnie Jackson, 43, the daughter of Cheryl Terrell, with whom he had a 25-year-long affair. In a 2003 interview on the BBC, Jackson said, "I whipped [Michael] with a switch and a belt...[but] I never beat him".

Where is the 5th ODI match between Australia and England going to be held? Aaron Finch is Australia's T20 captain. The wicket-keeper batsman's appointment as skipper for ODI series was a stop-gap measure as was mentioned by chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns at the time. Unlike Australia, England have never managed the feat in Test cricket either - Mike Brearley's 1978/79 tourists came closest to an Ashes clean sweep but had to settle for a mere 5-1 in a six-match series against hosts severely depleted during the era of Kerry Packer's World Series.

"As a kid I did look up to the Champions Trophy and wanted to play well", he added. Paine was abysmal with the bat and only mustered 36 runs in five innings.

"It's the decision I made, and I'm happy with it". "I haven't played anywhere near as well as I would have liked to". I felt pretty good in New Zealand, I just didn't get a big score. "I just wasn't kicking on".

England were knocked out in the group stage when they last hosted the World Cup in 1999.

"It's been great for them to learn to perform under pressure because playing in a World Cup - what I want to do, what everyone else in this squad wants to do - that's what you're going to come up against, being under pressure". "They know what it takes", he said.

"Cricket Australia as an organisation knows what it takes and whilst I've heard a few times this team looks like it hasn't got a plan or doesn't know where it's going, we've got a clear direction, we know where we're going".

And with pace trio Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood - widely regarded as the world's premier seaming pack - sitting out the tour, a thrashing to the world's number one side seemed likely even before the first toss.
