Morgan's place in the side was taken by Sam Billings, with wicket-keeper Jos Buttler captaining the team as the 2019 World Cup hosts were forced into a late reshuffle after their three-wicket victory in the first of this five-match series at The Oval on Wednesday.

Australia captain and wicket-keeper Tim Paine won the toss and opted to field in overcast conditions that promised to assist swing bowlers.

The world champions also made changes, with fast bowler Billy Stanlake ruled out with a left big toe injury.

Fellow quick Jhye Richardson, playing his second ODI, replaced Stanlake.

Meanwhile Australia opted to play an extra batsman in D'Arcy Short, who was making his ODI debut after appearing in five Twenty20 internationals, with medium-pacer Michael Neser left out.

Regular opener Aaron Finch was listed down the order, with Short set to open alongside Travis Head.

England: Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler (capt/wkt), Moeen Ali, David Willey, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

Australia: Travis Head, D'Arcy Short, Shaun Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Aaron Finch, Tim Paine (capt/wkt), Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Kane Richardson, Jhye Richardson

Highlights, CSK vs SRH, IPL 2021, Match 23, Full Cricket Score: Chennai win by 7 wickets, go top of the table

IPL 2021, LIVE Cricket Score, CSK vs SRH (Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hydrebad): MS Dhoni tosses the coin, but SRH win the toss and David Warner decides to bat first. "It looks like a different surface than we expected. The pitch has a nice grass covering, we are looking to put runs on the board and win. Two changes - Abhishek Sharma and Virat Singh make way for Manish Pandey and Sandeep Sharma," said Warner. MS Dhoni said he would have bowled anyway. "We were looking to bowl first. There is grass but the pitch looks tacky. There was a lot of dew last evening, and whenever there's dew, we prefer to bowl first. Lungi Ngidi and Moin Ali come back in playing 11 for Bravo and Tahir," said MSD at the toss.
