A century from Steve Smith has guided Australia to a 12-run victory over England in the teams' opening warm-up match for the Cricket World Cup.
Jofra Archer and Mark Wood, two of England's strike bowlers who can bowl consistently at 90mphr, sustained injuries and had to leave the field within few moments of their practice game against Australia in Southampton.
Twitter users reacted to the news with surprise, while enjoying the nostalgia of seeing Collingwood in and England kit once again.
Saturday's match saw World Cup favourites without captain Eoin Morgan after the batsman suffered a fracture to his left index finger during fielding practice on Friday. Morgan took a blow on his left index finger while practising slip catching from a bowling machine at the Ageas Bowl ahead of Saturday's World Cup warm up game against Australia.
Collingwood has played 197 ODIs for England between 2001 and 2011, amassing over 5,000 runs and snapping 111 wickets.
Smith and David Warner only returned to global duty earlier this month after they both completed year-long suspensions for their roles in a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa.
Missing Maui Hiker Amanda Eller Found Alive
Yoga instructor, Amanda Eller (left, on Friday with rescue crews), 35, has been found alive, Hawaii officials said Friday. Friends and family of Amanda Eller posted an announcement in the late afternoon on May 24 saying that she had been found.
England, fresh from a 4-0 series win over Pakistan, left out Test skipper Joe Root, leg-spinner Adil Rashid and fast bowler Jofra Archer from their side on Saturday. The duo's ban had ended on March 29.
And when the left-hander arrived at the crease, one fan shouted: "Get off, Warner, you cheat".
Steve Smith was not bothered by the reaction, saying "I'm pretty chilled".
There were more boos as Warner walked off after being dismissed for 43 to be replaced by Smith, coming in with Australia 82 for two in the 17th over.
Their first match in England this tour was a hastily arranged, unofficial warm-up match against the West Indies on the nursery ground at Southampton. I guess everyone is entitled their opinion and how they want to treat people, but it is water of a duck's back. I was just focused on contributing for my team.
When eventual centurion Smith reached his fifty, the applause outweighed the boos but the jeers were very much audible. "Glad to get a few runs under my belt".
