Australia are prepared to deal with plenty of criticism from the English support this summer, according to spinner Nathan Lyon.
However, the match was the first occasion in which David Warner and Steve Smith have played on these shores since the ball-tampering scandal that saw them both banned for a year.
The Ageas Bowl crowd were vocal with their criticism of the duo but Smith responded with a brilliant 116.
It is not just the World Cup that Australia will be in England for, as they are also set to contest the Ashes later in the summer.
At 31, Lyon has seen it all before in the game and says his team are expecting plenty more flak after Saturday’s chilly welcome in Southampton.
“It was as expected – they’re ruthless over here,” he said. “I’ve had two Ashes tours and a one-day series over here and haven’t experienced anything else.
“They’re ruthless and there’s not much love. They haven’t changed their lines in the last 12 months.”
Hodgkiss was appointed to the role in 2017.
The suspension was connected to Smith’s sanction following the ball-tampering scandal.
Professional commentator Mark Church says he is ‘hanging on the coattails’ of 10-year-old Isabelle.
The former England captain would rather see the first-class competition abandoned altogether than played in a ‘meaningless’ form.
Sibley came good and ended up finishing the series against South Africa as England’s top runscorer with 384 runs.
Manchester United pair Harry Maguire and Paul Pogba had mixed fortunes when passing the time away.
