Coach Justin Langer has called on the team to be "number one" in professionalism, honesty and humility, and that will begin with handshakes between the sides as Australia begin a one-day global series against England. Warner will join the commentary panel for the second game of the 5-match ODI series in Cardiff on June 16.

He also felt that the current Australian team will face instances where they might get bowled out really quickly as their batsmen are quite aggressive and thus, it is going to take a little bit of trial and error as well as a show of faith and trust from selectors.

This was Australia's first worldwide series since their controversial tour of South Africa saw former captain Steve Smith and his deputy David Warner - two of the world's leading batsmen - given year-long bans by Cricket Australia for their roles in the ball-tampering scandal during the third Test in Cape Town.

Vivo NEX is what you wanted the iPhone X to be
It's the first true bezel-less smartphone that features an industry-leading 91.24% screen-to-body ratio and there is no notch. Previously, there have been numerous leaks and rumors about the smartphone along with speculated features and specifications.

Australian captain Tim Paine will begin the series against England with handshakes as his team tries to rebuild their shattered i mage.

Paine was a stand-in captain that day but, having since taken over the captaincy full-time following Steve Smith's year-long suspension (to go with similarly lengthy bans for David Warner and Cameron Bancroft), the 33-year-old wicketkeeper is looking to do shake hands at the start of every series he leads - provided his opposite number agrees.

Defeat raised questions about the ability of England, who have never lifted the World Cup, to win "one-off" clashes but Bairstow said Eoin Morgan's men could handle everything that came with being top of the rankings. "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".

Technology comes to France’s aid in 2-1 win over Australia
The large Australian travelling support was now right behind their side as they sensed an unexpected outcome. Technology was required to confirm the goal, however, clearly it went over the line.

"We'll be judged on our actions going forward and it'll be plain for everyone to see".

"The previous two summers have gone really well, so we want to build on that".

Morgan insists England will not use the ball-tampering scandal as ammunition for sledging, however. We've spoken about our values internally as a team and how we want to be perceived by the Australian public and cricket public in general. If you look at it in that, it probably could be ammunition.

Messi: It was painful to miss the penalty
It came after some horribly slack play from Argentina and was the type of squandered chance teams so often live to regret. Messi was visibly frustrated throughout the match, especially in the moments that followed his missed penalty kick.

"It's something we're expecting from the crowd". The Aussie skipper said that they would have to do it by their actions.
