England won the toss and chose to bowl against Australia in opening one-day worldwide at Melbourne.

After recovering from a viral illness Joe Root is set to play for England.

England batsmen Jonny Bairstow and Alex Hales departed in quick succession as the chase got the early speed wobbles, with Australian quicks Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins making the inroads.

Bayliss's announcement caught some off guard but Morgan responded in typically bolshy fashion when asked if he was one of them.

The five-match series presents England with a chance to test the limits of their carefree approach against the world champions before next year's home World Cup.

Aaron Finch hit his ninth ODI century to anchor Australia's total of 304-8 batting first against England.

Steve Smith has called upon the middle order to step up following a string of tough losses in India. Adil Rashid was expensive, but produced a pair of teasing deliveries that accounted for Steven Smith and Marsh amid some looser offerings.

England were thumped 4-0 in the recent Ashes series, but a change of format brought a welcome upturn in fortune for the tourists on Sunday as Roy blasted Australia's bowlers to all parts in a magnificent 151-ball innings and recorded his country's highest individual score in one-day internationals.

Instead of Anderson it was Wood who shared the new ball with Chris Woakes, and immediately made his presence felt with a series of fast, rising deliveries that challenged Finch and Warner in ways that had not been seen during the Ashes.

Ahead of a busy global schedule, including home Test matches against India and Pakistan, England coach Trevor Bayliss has urged Root to skip the 2018 Indian Premier League.

Marsh and Finch quickly targeted Rashid, combining for 34 runs from his three-over spell midway through the innings.

Finch duly went to his third ODI century against England on this ground, and second in as many innings after the opening match of the 2015 World Cup, by swinging Rashid into the crowd with plenty of bottom hand.

In doing so, the 31-year-old became the equal-fourth fastest Australian to score 3000 ODI runs.

First, Finch picked out deep midwicket trying to break the manacles Moeen Ali had imposed with his off-spin from the members' end.

Rashid then clean-bowled Marsh with a sliding straight delivery.
