JASON GILLESPIE expects Australia to turn on the charm against Sussex at Hove today.

But that does not mean they will lose any of their competitive edge.

New coach Justin Langer brings his one-day side to the 1st Central County Ground for a 50-overs day-nighter ahead of their ODI series with England.

It will be a first chance to see the Aussies since their fateful tour to South Africa which saw Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft banned for offences related to ball-tampering.

Aussie legend Jason Gillespie believes the Hove contest marks a new beginning.

The Sussex head coach told The Argus: “I’m very confident they will show what it means to play for Australia.

“They’ve seen a couple of their mates have the opportunity to play for their country take away from them and that’s reality, that’s hit home.

“They’ve just gone, ‘Wow! This could be gone in the blink of an eye’.

“They think they are going to make the most of this privilege they have been afforded to play for their country.

“That’s what you are going to see from this Aussie side.

“I know Justin very well. I played alongside him a lot and he’s a great mate of mine.

“No doubt he will want them to play the game hard, play fair, play with passion but also be respectful of the crowds, of the opponents, of the umpires.

“I think you are going to see a very well behaved side and a side that is very engaging with everyone.

“I think the Aussie side will go a long way towards earning the trust and respect of supporters and stakeholders in the game.”

Sussex have rested Luke Wright . Young batsman Tom Haines features in a 12-man squad.
