very marketable though. he'll appear in the IPL soon enough
cricket rules brah
Hopefully Ingerland will be beaten,.
Last few spots for the Champions Trophy likely to be decided on this trip for England.
Definites imo - Roy, Hales, Root, Morgan, Stokes, Buttler, Ali, Woakes, Willey, Rashid
Leaves 4 spots.
Fast bowler - Wood (if fit)
Spare bat/wk - Bairstow/Billings
Spare fast bowler - Plunkett/Topley/Ball/Finn
14th man - Depends on who they want for balance.
England are a decent odi team these days but 4-1 for Windies to win the series seems a good bet. Windies players have just played a 50 over comp so they should be in good knick. Windies should be more adept on the likely slow turners, Rashid and Ali are average and low on confidence. Maybe a little lack of motivation/complacency in the batting knowing that the batting spots are basically settled for champions trophy + this feels like a pointless series propped in between the off and on season so players are probably a little underprepared. England's bowling as a whole is even weaker than it normally is- No Willey to take new ball wickets. Buttler lacking form.

Really looking forward to Tom Curran playing. He bowled well in Sri Lanka on the whole, and is obviously a solid prospect.

Gabriel is the bowler I'd least like to face in international cricket. Physically intimidating and hurls them down at 150km/h.

You have got to earn the right to be aggressive.Supporting XI
Soumya Sarkar, Pinak Ghosh, Mominul Haque, Mosaddek Hossain, Nazmul Hossain, Shabbir, Nurul Hasan, Mehedi Miraz, Abu Hider, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman
Stuart Law is a great addition to WI
Great start from Gabriel - got England's best 2 batsmen within his first 4 overs

Root looked awful in that dismissal
Gabriel can bowl.
