Hoping for a third consecutive series win against Australia
England also have a chance to win the ODI series after defeating Australia 2–1 in the T20 series. If the England team manages to win this series, it will be their third consecutive series win against Australia.
Smith did not play the first match due to a head injury.
The Australian team has landed in the match without Steve Smith. Smith was hit on the head during practice. For this reason, Australia did not feed the first ODI as a precaution. However, it is not yet decided whether Smith will play the next match. If they do not fit, they can be replaced as a concession substrate.

Australia: Aaron Finch (captain), David Warner, Marcus Stoinis, Marnus Labushane, Mitchell Marsh, Alex Carrie, Glenn Maxwell, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Jampa and Josh Hazlewood.
Australia did not win the series for 5 years from England
At the same time, Australia will descend from the host team with the intention of winning the series after 5 years. The last time Australia beat England 3–2 in a 5 ODI series at home was in September 2015. After this, there were two one-day series between the two teams and Australia suffered defeat in both.
Three ODIs at the same venue after 41 years
All three ODIs between the two countries will be played in Manchester. This will happen after 41 years, when three consecutive matches of a series between England and Australia will be played on the same venue. The last three matches of the 5 ODI series between the two countries were last played in Melbourne in 1979.
There have been 22 series between Australia and England so far, in which Australia has won 12 and England has won 10. At the same time, there were 15 series between England and Australia in England. In this, the host team has won 8 and Australia has won seven.
Australia's highs after winning last T20
Apart from the 14-man squad for the ODI series, the England Cricket Board has appointed three players as reserve players. It also includes David Malan. Malan had a brilliant performance in T20 cricket for England. On his own, he became the number-1 batsman in the ICC T20 rankings. Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood believes the Kangaroo team have regained the momentum after their last T20 win. This will benefit them in the ODI series.
Australia won 2 matches out of 7 since World Cup
Australia's record in ODIs has not been good since the 2019 World Cup. He has won only 2 out of 7 matches since the tournament. It has its third worst winning percentage among 14 teams playing five or more matches during this period.
