Although he retains the support of the players and the England and Wales Cricket Board, which has ruled out the sort of witch-hunt that followed the 2013-14 Ashes whitewash, there are those who believe that he should go now, or, at the very least, could yet go soon.

Thrashed in the Ashes and now facing the world champions on their home turf, England's prospects in the one-day series in Australia may appear bleak.

And he vowed to be "in a completely different place talking about a completely different story" when England return Down Under for another Ashes battle in four years time. England have been a successful team in the limited-overs format and have won matches with their aggressive approach.

The last one year has been a successful one for England in the ODIs while Australia have struggled in the 50-over game winning only five games last year.

Their only options, if they were to sack him, would be to do so at the end of this winter (to do so next summer would surely be a risk too far in respect of those World Cup aspirations) or else go down the split coaching route and have a separate head of the Test team, a path that the governing body are understood to be reluctant to take.

However, Ali got his revenge shortly afterwards, with Finch holing out to Jonny Bairstow at deep mid-wicket.

Hales could be involved for the first time since being suspended for his involvement in an incident in Bristol in September, which saw team-mate Ben Stokes arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm.

Limited-overs captain Morgan praised Bayliss' impact as England looks to restore pride in a five-match one-day global series against Australia and build towards next year's Cricket World Cup.

0815 hrs IST: Big match for England as well. Jason Roy and Alex Hales - both big-hitters - find themselves in those slots and if they can get the tourists off to good starts during the powerplay, then anything is possible.
