Johannesburg, June 19 : Australia coach Mickey Arthur has warned the England team of his team's pace armory, and is expecting an interesting one-day series against their old foes.
The Australians have arrived in England for five one-dayers, which will set the scene for next year''s tour where they will look to regain the Ashes.
England is the world''s top-ranked Test side, but Australia is the number one in the 50-over game, and they would look to cement this position, Sports24 reports.
"We are world number ones and we aim to come out and play a really good, exciting and sustainable brand of cricket. We have an exciting team. We have some real firepower in our attack and we''re looking forward to a good, interesting series," Arthur said.
"England are playing really well. I watched them the other day and they played some good cricket. They are tough in their own conditions. We''re a changing team and the aim for us is to stay number one while we keep evolving as a side. That''s a challenge in itself," he added.
Australia will play a warm-up against Leicestershire and would then face Ireland in Belfast during the weekend.
The first one-day match between England and Australia would be played at the Lords on June 29. (ANI)
