Australia skipper Aaron Finch, speaking at this week's World Cup captains' press conference, said, "Once the World Cup gets under way and you start getting into the tournament, probably the game against England, and then further on the Ashes there's no doubt the crowd will start to play a bit of a part but that's expected".

Australia has lost six wickets with 276 runs on the scoreboard in 48 overs against host team England in their ICC World Cup warm up match.

England captain Eoin Morgan will undergo "a precautionary x-ray" after injuring his left index finger in training, the England and Wales Cricket Board has announced.

They doctored an image of David Warner's official World Cup player portrait, replacing "Australia" on the front of his shirt with "Cheats". "England captain Eoin Morgan has sustained a small flake fracture to his left index finger".

Meanwhile, Eoin Morgan is an important stakeholder in that England line-up.

Mark Wood and Jofra Archer, the two men in the England squad who can regularly surpass 90 mph with the ball, were obliged to leave the pitch within minutes of one another in the opening hour of the warm-up match against Australia in Southampton. He has led the team to the pinnacle spot of the ODI ranking after their ouster from the group stages in the 2015 ICC World Cup.

All fingers will be crossed for good news on Morgan, though, given his crucial importance to the campaign. He has played 222 one-day internationals and averages 39.64 after hitting 12 centuries and 45 half-centuries.

"I was batting on the other side, so I didn't know what went on".
