Past records don’t count, says Bailey

Numero uno side Australia followed an emphatic 4-1 series win in England last January with a tri-series victory at home this month to make it the clear favourites going into the mega-event that kicks off with a double at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Christchurch.

“I’d love to say (past records) counts for something, but I honestly don’t think it does,” Bailey told reporters on Friday. “England has made some really positive changes to the way they play and their structure, and I personally think they look really dangerous.

“Unfortunately we all start on zero tomorrow.” Australia have won 13 of 15 ODIs against England over the past four years. The record in Melbourne is even more one-sided, with England losing eight of their last 11 matches at the MCG – its last win coming way back in 2007.
