Eoin Morgan has urged his England side to learn the lessons from their shock defeat to Scotland when they play Australia in the first of five one-day internationals on Wednesday - live on Sky Sports Cricket and Main Event from 12.30pm.
England suffered a six-run defeat to associate nation Scotland in a thrilling ODI on Sunday, conceding 371 runs after putting their Edinburgh hosts into bat before being bowled out for 365 in the penultimate over in pursuit of what would have been their record run-chase.
"It's never a good thing when you lose but you've got to take the learning process from it," captain Morgan told Sky Sports News. "It's no good losing the lesson and the game - you've got to take something from it.
"Like I said the other day, we missed our length and line a little bit and with the bat we didn't play as good a cricket as we would have liked."
A positive for England is the fine form of Jonny Bairstow, who became the first England batsman ever to score three ODI centuries in a row with his 105 (off only 59 balls) against Scotland, while the batting will be further bolstered by the return of Jos Buttler - rested and replaced by Sam Billings behind the stumps on Sunday.
Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes will miss Wednesday's series opener at The Oval through injury, hopeful of a return later in the series, so Tom Curran and Jake Ball are the options should the hosts which to change-up their bowling attack.
Despite their surprise Scotland defeat, Australia skipper Tim Paine does not expect that, nor England's 4-1 ODI series win during their winter down under, to have any bearing on the outcome of the upcoming series.
"What happened in Scotland and what happened in Australia is going to have no impact, it's a whole new series," Paine told Sky Sports News.
"Obviously they would have liked to have won the other day but if anything we saw once again just how dangerous their batting can be. We know we're going to have to be at our absolute best.
"I'm sure they'll come back better for what happened in Scotland."
The two teams will shake hands before the game at The Oval in a bid to heal wounds following March's ball-tampering scandal that rocked Australian cricket.
Morgan has agreed to counterpart Paine's request, saying he was "absolutely happy" with the idea, but it will only occur ahead of Wednesday's opening match of the series.
"They don't have to do it but it's something we want to bring in at the start of a series, not before every game," Paine said of the handshake arrangement.
Former Australia captain Steve Smith and deputy David Warner were banned for a year, and Cameron Bancroft for nine months, for ball-tampering against South Africa in a Test match in Cape Town.
