India, Australia tours are biggest challenges for England: Jos Buttler

India, Australia tours are biggest challenges for England: Jos Buttler

"Apart from that, it's just what I've learned from other coaches".

There was a small but important piece of history made in an otherwise low-key warm up game at the Drummoyne Oval when Claire Polosak became the first women to umpire an England men's cricket match. "Liam is also highly regarded at his county Lancashire and will captain the side in the Specsavers County Championship during the 2018 campaign".

"Being picked for the squad is great, but I know there's a lot more work to do to earn a place in the team", said the Cumbrian, whose selection has gone down especially well in his home town of Barrow-in-Furness.

"Pat Cummins is someone I compared myself too".

Fellow one-day specialists Eoin Morgan (81 off 76) and Jason Roy (40 off 48) also played with confidence to chase down the target in 41 overs, with Joe Root recovering from illness on the sidelines.

"We've managed to distinguish between the formats over the past year-and-a-half or so", captain Morgan said.

"We want to get the feeling around the one-day group a lot more positive and upbeat in order to play this brand of cricket".

Despite their poor outing with the willow in the 0-4 Ashes humiliation against Australia, James Vince and Mark Stoneman have retained their places in England's Test squad.

In his first top-flight senior game, the 17-year-old lifted his fourth ball over third man for six off Wood and struck three more maximums before Rashid had him stumped for 59.

The newly-appointed Lancashire captain made two T20 appearances against South Africa last summer to give him a first taste of worldwide cricket after his impressive performances in the Specsavers County Championship and on the Lions tour of Sri Lanka.
