London - England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to field in the second one-day international at Lord's on Saturday.

Morgan, after rain delayed the scheduled start by an hour, was looking to his attack to take advantage of the still overcast conditions at Lord's, where he plays county cricket for Middlesex.

England made one change recalling Yorkshire fast bowler Liam Plunkett in place of Mark Wood, who was not at his best during Australia's 59-run win in the first of a five-match series in Southampton on Thursday.

Australia, the 50-over World Cup champions, were unchanged.

The rain meant Saturday's match had been reduced to a 49 overs per side contest.
