Australia - now ranked sixth in the world - hasn’t played an ODI since June and is only scheduled to play six more 50-over matches before the event starts in May.

On the domestic front, teams played a maximum eight games in the JLT One-Day Cup, while all six teams qualified for the finals.

Cowan was pleased with the standard on show in the competition but said it should be re-formatted again to include more pressure-filled games.

“The most skilled team (Victoria) won what was a competition played generally to a very high standard. My one issue with the JLT Cup is that out of six teams, all six teams made the finals,” he told Bill & Boz.

“To promote really hardened cricketers, they all played three games of pressured cricket. The other rounds didn’t mean anything.”

Domestic 50-over cricket is now wrapped up until next year, while Australia’s first ODI - since its five-match series in England in June - is on November 4.

That match kicks off a three-match series against South Africa, before Australia plays three more against India in January.

Cowan lamented the lack of ODI fixtures and questioned how it will affect Australia’s World Cup preparation.

“Australia don’t play many one-day games now ... How do you pick an Australian one-day team when all your one-day cricket is four months earlier?” he said.

“Do you know what? We were the first team in the world, we’re now sixth.

“[There’s a] correlation to us falling from first to sixth and stuffing around with the JLT Cup.”

Australia dropped to its lowest position on the International Cricket Council’s ODI world rankings during the series in England.

The visitors were comprehensively beaten in a 5-0 whitewash, becoming the first Australian outfit to lose four consecutive bilateral ODI series since 1984.

Australia will return to the UK in May for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
