    Hales's record in T20 cricket is still pretty awesome. Might be more of a case for finding someone better in ODIs, but in T20s it'd be silly to drop him IMO.

    Jennings bats like 8 in T20s. He is a pony white ball player

    Hales also is a very good T20 player and scored 171 5 ODIs ago.

    Even in ODIs, Hales has had one bad series in India after the previous series where he smashed a career best 170 against Pakistan. Still averaging 36 at 94 sr. Why would anyone drop an opener like that? Apart from it being very harsh on Hales, it is also going to pretty stupid.

    Yeah there is no question about Hales in twenty20 and it would be really harsh to drop him from the 50 over side, but given that he is injured I would like them to try this is in West Indies:

    Roy
    Root
    Stokes
    Buttler
    Morgan
    Billings

    As others have mentioned I don't really understand the Billings opening things, his strengths are really at the end of an innings. Stokes has improved hugely at 5 but still think 3 would be perfect for him and we want Buttler higher up.

    Jennings' first really eye catching T20 innings was on Finals Day last year.

    I wouldn't try him in T20Is. In the past England would definitely have groomed him for Tests by playing him ODIs (which is a bit nonsensical but there you go). Having him open as a stop-gap whilst someone out injured is feasible. I'd be letting him focus on Test cricket and establishing himself there. If he plays in ODIs it should be just about getting some high level cricket and not getting too involved in that setup just yet.

    I'd much rather Vince than Jennings. Also Bell-Drummond and Duckett.

    England struggled badly on this tour. They couldn't win 1 series. No team that tours India from now on should be playing more than 3 tests in India, and that includes Pakistan. India's batting has been outstanding to say the least.
