Eng v NZ ODI. Stokes back....
« on: February 24, 2018, 11:12:58 AM »

Well it looks like Stokes is going to play with England saying(shows how much he has been missed) he could play as a batsman only, which is a little unusual but there you go.

So who misses out? Hales tipped by the papers to make way a week after signing just white ball only contract(will the cricket gods look unfavourably on this).  :)

Was literally just going to start a post about the series.  :D

We look sooooooo much stronger with Stokes, Ali, Woakes etc.. back. It just balances the side better.

Squads are below for the series -

New Zealand ODI squad (from): Kane Williamson (capt), Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Todd Astle, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Matt Henry, Ish Sodhi.

England ODI squad (from): Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Sam Billings (wk), Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Eoin Morgan (capt), Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.

Woakes, in the autocorrect obsessed world of my smartphone!

Its a superb side - 6 front line bowling options plus Root, batting or hitting all the way down.

That may even come down to whether the set bat is right of left handed.

Ben Stokes walked out to a big cheer and clapping from the crowd.


Full NB kit adorned, but with the badges taped over.

This pitch is looking quite slow.

Effortless fifty from root. But anyone whos tried to tee off has instantly gone.

Stokes out for 12 on his return

Interesting last few overs. Will be targeting around 300 with Buttler still there

Woakes, or Wales as he is known by some forum members chipping in again with a couple top order wickets to put some brakes on NZ

There's lovely  :)
