Manchester - England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to bat against Australia in the third one-day international at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

England made one change from the side that suffered a 64-run defeat at Lord's on Saturday, recalling wicketkeeper/batsman Jonathan Bairstow after deciding to rest first-choice gloveman Jos Buttler from the remainder of the series.

World champions Australia, 2-0 up with three to play in the five-match contest, made three injury-enforced changes to their side.

Opener Aaron Finch came in for David Warner (fractured thumb), left-arm spinner Ashton Agar replaced all-rounder Shane Watson (calf) and James Pattinson took over from fellow quick Nathan Coulter-Nile (hamstring).

This match was Agar's one-day international debut and was also his first senior Australia appearance of any kind for two years.

The 21-year-old remains best known for scoring 98 at No 11 on his Test debut against England at Trent Bridge in 2013.
