Eoin Morgan injured his left index finger in training on Friday

Both bowlers are deemed vital in the team's preparations to lift the cup and as a result, they were allowed to rest with 42-year-old Collingwood stepping in for Wood as a substitute fielder for the side led by Jos Buttler instead of Eoin Morgan - who was also rested due to injury.

Australian cricket team batsman David Warner and captain Steve Smith were subjected to jeers in the match against England.

England Cricket Team have received another jolt in the ICC World Cup 2019 chances as two of their fast bowlers - Jofra Archer and Mark Wood sustained injuries during the practice games against Australia.

NHRC notice to Gujarat govt over death of children — Surat fire tragedy

When and where will the warm-up match between England and Australia be played? The familiar fidgety twitching and aggressively unorthodox batting hasn't changed, but his 116 runs at the Ageus Bowl, following scores of 89 not out, 91 not out and 76 in three previous warm-up matches, suggests he is heading into the World Cup in better ODI form than he was in before the Newlands scandal forced his absence from the game. The duo returned to global duty earlier this month after serving a year-long ban for the ball tampering scandal against South Africa.

And when the left-hander arrived at the crease, one fan shouted: "Get off, Warner, you cheat".

There were more boos as Warner walked off after being dismissed for 43 to be replaced by Smith, coming in with Australia 82 for two in the 17th over.

While there was booing when Smith reached his century, there was also applause - none more enthusiastic than from his team-mates standing on the dressing room balcony.

Instagram adds support for landscape video on IGTV
As we've written before, Instagram wants its vertical video platform to succeed so bad they're adding support for landscape video. But it is a little humorous to consider the criticisms brands saw for posting frames like this on their initial IGTV efforts.


The disgraced duo's first match in England this tour was a hastily arranged, unofficial warm-up match against the West Indies on the nursery ground at Southampton on Wednesday. But that fixture was played in front of fewer than 30 spectators, whereas there were several thousands here on Saturday.

Steve Smith was not bothered by the reaction, saying "I'm pretty chilled".

"I'm just happy to be back playing". Everyone's entitled to their opinion. "Glad to get a few runs under my belt".
