England v Australia – First Royal London ODI – England Nets Session – Kia Oval

The Scots, who beat England in Sunday's one-day global, lost by 48 runs in the first of two T20 internationals with Pakistan in Edinburgh.

'It's not the end of the world for us, it was a really good run out and good to have a practice coming into the series against Australia, ' he added ahead of a five-match campaign that gets underway at The Oval on Wednesday.

"We have got to enjoy the occasion", he said.

The other side (Scotland) is comprising with Kyle Coetzer (captain), Richie Berrington, Dylan Budge, Matt Cross, Alasdair Evans, Craig Wallace, Michael Leask, Calum MacLeod, Hamza Tahir, George Munsey, Safyaan Sharif, Chris Sole, Mark Watt, Brad Wheal, Stuart Whittingham.

"I'm really confident, feel like I'm bowling quite nicely especially with the white ball", he said. The partnership between M Cross and K Coetzer was the joint fourth highest opening partnership in ODIs for Scotland.

The defeat to Scotland meant Bairstow's own personal feats have been somewhat overlooked, but he was once again in scintillating form at the top of the England order as he hit a 54-ball century to mark his third ODI ton on the bounce.

Morgan has vowed England will approach the Australia series with "service as usual" on a sledging front - but promised his side will not touch on March's events. "We didn't play anywhere near our best, we were a bit rusty, but credit to Scotland". England beat Australia 4-1 away from home a matter of months ago, and recently rose to No. 1 in the rankings (not that it helped them a jot against Scotland). "I think it's going to be a good series".

Morgan accepted that Scotland had been fired-up for the game and out to make a point after narrowly failing to reach a World Cup which has been condensed to just ten nations by the ICC.

"We set our stall out to be number one in the world and that's where we are, whether we were number one in this game or not, Scotland would still be delighted to win, it's not just because we are number one". "We didn't do enough to win".

Scotland's shock one-day global win over England has boosted their chances of securing test-playing status, the country's cricket board has said.
