Adelaide Oval is widely regarded as having found the best balance for its drop-in pitches, with something for batsmen and bowlers alike. Last year’s ODI between Australia and Pakistan saw a match aggregate of 681 runs, however, and the forecast for a hot, clear day could mean plenty of chasing leather. Morgan has suggested England will play their strongest XI in pursuit of two more victories but Liam Plunkett’s hamstring injury will cause him to miss the last two games and will lead to at least one change, with Tom Curran and David Willey vying for a chance. There may also be a temptation to give a debut to Dawid Malan at some stage. Head is most likely to replace Finch at the top. Not only did he find some form with 58 from 47 balls for Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League, but on Australia Day last year, Head put on a record 284 with Warner on the way to an Australian total of 369 against Pakistan. Maxwell, meanwhile, has been added to the squad as batting cover.
