Ashes defeat does not harm England´s one-day players,…

For England, the baton has been handed over to ODI skipper Eoin Morgan and the recognisable absentee from the group is Ben Stokes.

The Lions training camp also gave Livingstone a close-up view of Ashes cricket in Australia - including attending the first day of the first Test at the 'Gabba.

England rebranded their limited-overs game dramatically since they were last one these shores, the abject 2015 World Cup campaign which exposed some outdated ideas and became a watershed moment for the team.

Next summer's tournament on home soil presents a golden opportunity for England to secure their first major 50-over global success, but they go into Sunday's Gillette Series opener against Australia in Melbourne ranked fourth in the format.

"Joe should be fit to play", Morgan said.

The five-match ODI series between Australia and England gets underway on January 14 in Melbourne.

"I think down the line there will be (a chance)", suggested Morgan. There was some chat about the depth of Australia's pace-bowling resources during the Test series (Jackson Bird's outing on the terrible MCG surface was the only time it was put into action) and this series may give some indication how it stands with the white ball.

What? One-day worldwide cricket is not more important than the Test-match version these days?

Hales is free to play again after being cleared over his involvement in the Stokes incident.

Talking of allrounders, England will be hoping that the one-day series can help Moeen escape the funk the surrounded him for much of the Ashes. "He signed a contract until 2019 and has always said the same thing".

Eoin Morgan has leapt to the defence of England head coach Trevor Bayliss, praising him for lifting the pressure off the squad.

Australia squad: Steve Smith (C), David Warner, Pat Cummins, Aaron Finch, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh, Tim Paine (wk), Jhye Richardson, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Cameron White, Adam Zampa.

Livingstone made his County Championship debut in 2016 and hit his maiden First Class century in just his third game against Somerset, having made his T20 bow in the previous season, when Lancashire won the NatWest T20 Blast for the first time in the Club's history.

"I get on really well with Glenn and it was good to catch up and have a chat".

"That's between me and Glenn", Smith said.

The series against Australia will be interesting if only to see how England respond to the Ashes defeat.
