Jonny Bairstow has insisted England can cope with the pressure of being the world's top-ranked one-day worldwide side as they head into a five-match series against Australia on the back of a shock six-run defeat by Scotland.

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.

Morgan has agreed to the request, but the practice will only happen for Wednesday's opening encounter of the five-match series.

England confirmed one change to the side that lost so famously against Scotland at the weekend, with Jos Buttler returning in the middle order in place of Sam Billings, who has been released, along with Jake Ball, to play for Kent and Nottinghamshire respectively in tomorrow's Royal London Cup quarter-final.

"I can't talk about it anymore 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. We've spoken about our values and how we want to be perceived by the Australian public and the cricket public in general. 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. "You get to number one and people are going to want to beat you, but you want to be number one in the world".
