It is the first time the sides have met since England completed its historic 3-1 Ashes series win over Australia.

White has taken over the captaincy of the Australian Twenty20 team from Michael Clarke, who stood down to concentrate on Test cricket after a dismal Ashes series with the bat.

England are aiming for a record eighth straight T20 international win in the match.

In-form batsman Ian Bell was recalled to play his first T20 match for England since 2008, while Chris Woakes makes his debut.

The two teams meet again on Friday at the MCG, before playing a seven-match one-day series.

David Warner, Shane Watson, Aaron Finch, David Hussey, Cameron White, Steve Smith, Tim Paine, Mitchell Johnson, Steve O'Keefe, Brett Lee, Shaun Tait
