Banned test cricketer and former vice captain of the Australian team, David Warner, has been signed by Nine to join the commentary team for the upcoming second one-day worldwide (ODI) against England on Saturday June 16.

"They don't have to do it but it's something we want to bring in to start a series, not before every game", said Paine.

Despite the controversy surrounding Australia's conduct against South Africa, England skipper Morgan says his side will not sledge their opponents and will shake hands before the match.

The earlier record of 229 not out in the name former Australian captain Belinda was set when Amelia was not even born. Kerr's innings is third highest in ODI cricket, behind Rohit Sharma's 264 and Martin Guptill's 237.

Morgan told the BBC: "We play our cricket pretty hard, positively and aggressively, so we'll continue to do that. It's important for the game to have a strong Australia side - we're more than happy to shake hands if that creates a different image for people".

While England reflect on the defeat to Scotland, the series is a huge one for Australian cricket.

"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".

Asked what the chat in the dressing room had been in the wake of the Scotland defeat, Morgan said: "Keep things simple, go back to basics a little bit". But words are words and on Wednesday we have to show them in our actions.

"It's no good losing the lesson and the game, you've got to take something from it", he added.

"It's part and parcel of the game", he explained.
