The Oval tends to be good for batting whatever the format, and there have been 10 300-plus ODI scores on the ground since 2015. Given recent dry weather, there might, however, be some purchase for spin. The forecast for Tuesday is warm and cloudy, but don’t expect the white Kookaburra to swing.
Langer said he would have sleepless nights trying firm up Australia’s combination. There are a number of routes he could go, with questions over where Aaron Finch bats and the make-up of the pace attack. 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. There could be ODI debuts for D’arcy Short and Michael Neser.
England will welcome back Jos Buttler, who was rested for Edinburgh, but are still without the injured Stokes and Woakes. None of the bowlers came off well against Scotland and one of Tom Curran or Jake Ball stand a chance of coming into the XI, possibly at the expense of Willey.
