If the bowling at your club nets is a bit on the variable side then don't dispair completely, you can still improve your batting. Work on your process and concentration - how do you set up in your stance, where are you looking as the bowler's running in, what do you do to switch your concentration on each ball. Nets may be no good at times for honing your cover drive, but you can always be working on making good decisions. I get annoyed as much as anyone when I'm in the 'spin' net with a non-bowler lobbing down pies, you just have to remind yourself that it's practice at putting away the bad ball. Only difference being that you know it'll be a bad ball before he's let go of it!

Buttler's being rested.

Expect England to win but could well be an interesting series. Don't expect it'll be easy though - also note we've only won one series there in the past 50 years!!

West Indies shape up ok if lacking in batting, they smashed Bangladesh in their last home series and should be putting out a stronger side than they were then by the looks of things. Gabriel and Roach are a proper international opening pair and Jason Holder averaged a hardly believable 12 in 2018. Alzarri Joseph/Oshane Thomas/Jomel Warrican for the last place presumeably - young and promising vs young and rrrrrapid vs span the Lions out last winter. Darren Bravo coming back is very handy given their top 3 lately. Brathwaite, Campbell, Bravo, Hope, Hetmyer, Chase, Dowrich, Holder, Roach, Warrican, Gabriel is a respectable XI even if unlikely to strike fear into an opposition.

Sounds like there might be a bit more in the pitches than usual which wouldn't be surprising given the strengths of the Windies side. Fancy them to give us a fright and knock us over cheaply at least once, but not put up enough runs to really threaten.
England predictions... I reckon Burns will get a few, Jennings and Bairstow not many. Root to bat really nicely but score no tons, Buttler to dig us out of a lot of holes. Bowling, who knows who we'll even pick! Hope Stone gets a game.

Why is Baristow listed as wicket keeper on the scorecard on Cricinfo for the warm up game?  Bit harsh on Foakes if Baristow gets the gloves back and he gets dropped.

Edit: Buttler seems to be missing from the score card also  :o

I would say both Jennings and Bairstow are better players of spin than seam so this will be a far stronger test than Sri Lanka.  You would feel that Burns and Baistow will be given at least until the English summer, but Jennings is the one who has to deliver now

It is still a work in progress in some sections, buy thanks to Paul and Steve (you know who you are! ;)) for your comments
