Shock loss to Scots will worry England, says Agar

Earlier, Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat against Scotland. Nathan Lyon, at least, had the ideal rejoinder when asked what he had in his pocket down in Hove: "just the Ashes, mate".

An unbeaten 89 from captain Sarfraz helped the tourists reach 204-4.

Today's match is scheduled to begin at 8pm (PST) and 4pm on BST.

Despite two relatively low scores from D'Arcy Short in the warm-up matches, he looks set to make his ODI debut with Marcus Stoinis to keep his spot at No.3 after his classy century against Sussex.

"It's now about living our actions, we've spoken about internally about our values as a team and how we want to be perceived by the Australian public and by the cricket public in general". They started the chase well with Jonny Bairstow bringing up his third consecutive century. "I'm not hugely disappointed about it because it was a good competitive game and that is all we could have asked for", he said.

"I can't talk about it any more to be honest, we've talked about what's acceptable from our team and what people are saying from outside our team doesn't really matter", Paine said.

England will welcome back Jos Buttler, who was rested for Edinburgh, but are still without the injured Stokes and Woakes.

With Calum MacLeod, Sunday's star of the show with his 140 not out knock, trapped lbw by Shadab Khan for just 12, the fight quickly drifted out of the hosts' showing. Glenn Maxwell will play despite recent poor outings given that he has the backing of the new coach Langer. There are a number of routes he could go, with questions over where Aaron Finch bats and the make-up of the pace attack.

Glenn Maxwell's lean run of form could force Australia into a batting order rejig. Michael Neser is also likely to debut in this game as he has impressed everyone in the recent times. The forecast for Tuesday is warm and cloudy, but don't expect the white Kookaburra to swing.

His 94-ball effort was the first century by a Scottish batsman in an worldwide against England, and left Eoin Morgan's side needing to beat their highest previous run chase to win the game.

David Warner will join the commentary team for the second ODI between Australia and England. Since then, they have suffered two defeats and a no-result. Whether it's Namibia, Papua New Guinea, the Dutch or the number one team in the world, we want to extend our skills and push them to what is required to win games against the very best.

"But we're confident - in our own conditions in the last few years we've been playing really well".
