Nafeza 2 world - "The benefit is the knowledge of what we need to do and maybe not having to take as many risks depending on how things look," Jones added.

"The guys behind the scenes will work out the exact figures.

"For example, chasing 180, but we need to get to 150 to go through, if there are wickets falling, if we can get to that score [150], that's the obvious thing to do - to get through by any means possible."

Jones hopes Australia field a weakened side, but if that does not materialise, he will relish the prospect of facing some of the game's great bowlers.

"You want to challenge yourself against the best and coming into the tournament you see we've got England and Australia, so that is opportunities to bat against Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazelwood, Mitchell Starc, they're the best in the world and these are the opportunities we crave," he added.

"You want to see how you go against these guys. so I almost hope they do go full strength and we can show the cricket world we're up to the challenge."
