Australia turn to Lyon as England stick with Sri Lanka XI

Australia have selected Nathan Lyon in their side to face England at Lord's on Tuesday.

Lyon had not featured in any of Australia's previous six matches at the 2019 tournament, his last ODI appearance coming in March.

But the spinner has been named in place of Adam Zampa as Australia look to make it six wins from seven games at the Cricket World Cup with a victory over the pre-tournament favourites.

Seamer Jason Behrendorff comes in for Nathan Coulter-Nile in Australia's other change.

England, who won the toss and elected to bowl, are unchanged despite suffering a shock defeat to Sri Lanka at Headingley last time out.

With Jason Roy again absent with a hamstring injury, James Vince will open alongside Jonny Bairstow, keeping his place after scoring just 14 at Leeds.
