  • Josh Hazlewood took a miserly 3-26 from his maximum 10 overs
  • Josh Hazlewood was nearly unplayable during a stunning opening spell

Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood insisted it had been a case of "onwards and upwards" after he starred during a 19-run win over world champions England within the first one-day international at Old Trafford on Friday. Hazlewood took a miserly 3-26 from his maximum 10 overs that stifled England's pursuit of a target of 295 from the outset, removing opener Jason Roy and Test skipper Joe Root for single-figure scores as the hosts limped to 22-2 off the first 10 overs. This was Australia's first 50-over match against England since a crushing eight-wicket defeat by their arch-rivals within the semi-finals of last year's World Cup at Edgbaston.

Hazlewood, however, didn't play therein match after being controversially omitted from the World Cup squad, with the selectors instead wanting him to regain full fitness following a back injury for the next Test series in England, where Australia retained the Ashes in a 2-2 draw.

Asked if the way he bowled on Friday made his World Cup absence all the more painful, Hazlewood replied: "Nah it's onwards and upwards. That's an extended time ago now, so always looking forward."

The 29-year-old was close to unplayable during a stunning opening spell of two wickets for five runs in six overs.

"England's top order is probably the shape top order within the world within the last three or four years, so i guess going against them is a good measure of where you're at," Hazlewood said after what was just Australia's third win in 14 ODIs against their oldest foe.

"To keep them down to 20-odd for 2 within the first 10 was great."

Meanwhile, England captain Eoin Morgan said Hazlewood had enjoyed a "day out" after his side went 1-0 down during a three-match series that continues Sunday.

"They (Australia) were outstanding, incredibly accurate and that they got the ball moving," he said. "It's rarely it happens to us."

'Keeping Stokesy's chair warm'

Sam Billings kept England within the game with 118, his maiden ODI hundred, after sharing a century partnership with Jonny Bairstow (84) following the hosts' collapse to 57-4.

Billings was the sole member of England's XI on Friday not involved within the World Cup squad, together with his |along with his"> together with his inclusion owing much to star all-rounder Ben Stokes still being on leave with his ill father in New Zealand.

Billings, reflecting on his "mixed feelings" at making 100 during a losing cause, told Sky Sports he was keen to "keep putting scores on the board" after what was just his 19th ODI appearance during a five-year England career.

The 29-year-old Kent batsman added, however: "I don't think it matters how many runs i get, i do know I'm only keeping Stokesy's chair warm for him."


Morgan, however, insisted Billings had batted brilliantly on the rear of "sporadic" chances caused by the fact he, also as Jos Buttler and Stokes, had often been at No 6 instead.

"But today he (Billings) really stood out in a spot that's really difficult to bat, where you'll be thrown in at all different circumstances," said Morgan
