Pat Cummins Australia captain
Fantastic performance, a really team effort. Everyone came here fresh. Ashton Agar came in after a few days, nice to see everyone step up. We’ve got plenty of Test cricket coming up, to see Smith play like this was really pleasing. He’s been putting in a lot of effort in the nets. Pretty pleased with my bowling performance as well.
Jos Buttler England captain
Not fussed about the result, we wanted to play with a certain character. Dawid Malan was brilliant to take us till there, and with the field we tried different things and everyone responded. Not happy because we needed to take wickets early on. Quick turnaround, we travel tomorrow and then play Saturday. There will be changes. Let’s see how the senior guys are feeling then, or there’s always a chance to give some others a game and add to that huge talent pool that’s served us so well.
Dawid Malan man of the match
No idea, usually just really good wickets. The smaller squares help. Tough to miss those two games with all the work you’ve put in the last few years, but to come back here and prove my fitness with that hundred was exciting. The pitch got better in the second innings, they bowled really well with the new ball. Maybe we were about 30 runs short. I think 50-over cricket is my strongest format, but it is quite tough to get into this team. Hopefully if I can keep performing like this I can make my mark. (On bowling) I was going to come on earlier but didn’t fancy myself against Alex Carey with the short boundary.
Australia vs England Cricket Highlights today. 1st ODI, Adelaide Oval, Adelaide, Thursday 17-11-2022, England tour to Australia.
Dawid Malan smashed a brilliant century to repel a fired-up Australia attack and lift England to a highly competitive 287 for 9 in the ODI series-opener in Adelaide. Just four days after their T20 World Cup triumph, England crashed to 66 for 4 in an unsurprisingly lethargic start before Malan’s heroics ensured Australia’s batters have work to do under lights to kick-start the three-match contest.
Malan made a compelling case for a permanent spot after notching his second ODI hundred in the 40th over in a tonic after missing out on England’s title-winning team due to a groin injury.
