England take on Australia who have opted to bat in the second One-Day International (ODI) match of the five-match ODI series at Kennington Oval in London.
England -- who will replace Australia at the top of the 50-over rankings if they complete a 5-0 clean sweep in the series -- drew first blood with a 15-run win at Lord's on Friday as the tourists, despite fifties from David Warner and captain Michael Clarke, fell short.
The hosts were faltering at 121 for three in difficult conditions in the first ODI when left-hander Morgan walked out on his Middlesex home ground on Friday. ( Read match report here)
Clarke praised Morgan's innings but also highlighted aspects of Australia's game requiring improvement ahead of Sunday's second one-dayer across London at The Oval.
England: Alastair Cook (c), Craig Kieswetter (wk), Jonathan Trott, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Graeme Swann, Eoin Morgan, Jade Dernbach, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Steven Finn.
