Plunkett reveals why the ODI series against Australia is extremely important

Australia vs England: Joe Root Fit To Play In Series Opener, David Warner Doubtful

Both Vince and Stoneman averaged under 30 with the bat in Australia against an admittedly high-class four-man bowling attack.

Mark Wood replaced Jake Ball, after recovering from his injury.

All-rounder Ben Stokes has also been included in the squad but his participation will depend on the outcome of the case following his involvement in an incident outside a Bristol nightclub in September previous year.

On the other hand, Lancashire batsman Liam Livingstone is all set for his debut. The explosive middle-order batsman also scored a massive double hundred for Lancashire last summer.

His initial foray into global cricket produced just 16 runs in a brace of sprint-format matches against South Africa last June.

"I'm desperate to play for England but there are probably a couple of games I played in the past when I shouldn't have and that has damaged my reputation with coaches and selectors". "He is a very talented and tough cricketer who has the ideal qualities and character to be successful in the test arena".

Marketed as a super SUV with the underpinnings of a sports auto , the Urus is built on the Volkswagen Group's MLB EVO platform. The forthcoming SUV will be an essential player for the vehicle maker as far as the global sales are concerned.

The ECB selectors have kept the controversial all-rounder in the loop despite the investigation.

The England and Wales Cricket Board have made him unavailable until a decision is made on whether Stokes will be charged over the incident, but have consistently picked him subject to a change in his circumstances.

Stokes has proved his all-round abilities in the longest format of the game. He has scored just two half-centuries in 20 Test innings and has been out numerous times in similar fashion: caught behind the wicket playing expansively outside the off-stump. He has also done well with the ball despite his journey with the team in the past two years being a roller-coaster ride.

The likes of Root, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes might be suffering from an Ashes hangover, but Plunkett insists there are enough new faces to make sure the team isn't on the back foot from the off.

England have spent all winter debating how to claim the wicket of Steve Smith - but limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan was quick to talk down its significance as they attempt to turn the tables on Australia.

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.
