England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to field in the second one-day international against Australia at Manchester's Old Trafford on Sunday.

The five-match series is all square at 0-0 after the first ODI in Leeds on Friday was washed out without a ball bowled.

England made three changes from the side that beat Ireland by six wickets in a one-off ODI in Malahide on Tuesday, with batsmen Kevin Pietersen, Jonathan Trott and Joe Root replacing Luke Wright, James Taylor and Gary Ballance.

At the toss, Morgan -- who made a match-winning unbeaten hundred against his native Ireland -- indicated Pietersen, a dynamic top-order Test batsman, would open in this match.

Australia retained the same team that thrashed Scotland by 200 runs on Tuesday in the lone ODI in Edinburgh.
