Two teams have been selected for the three-day intra squad match starting tomorrow. The teams will be captained by Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler.

Team Stokes: Dominic Sibley, Keaton Jennings, Zak Crawley, Jonathan Bairstow, Ben Stokes (c), Ben Foakes, Moeen Ali, Lewis Gregory, Craig Overton, Jack Leach, Olly Stone, James Anderson, Saqib Mahmood.

Team Buttler: Rory Burns, James Bracey, Joe Denly, Dan Lawrence, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler (c), Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Dominic Bess, Mark Wood, Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad, Matthew Parkinson, Ollie Robinson.

Funny old mix.
Seems a shoot out between Laurence, Crawley and Denly for two spots in the XI, with Crawley and Denly favourites.
Bowling will be Jofra, Jimmy and Broad, which leaves the spinner, the windiest only have one leftie, the rest are righties, which means you need a SLA rather than an offie, but Mo is experienced and is the better batsman of the three.

Ed Smith has excessive man love for Buttler. It is boring.

Bracey and Crawley out of position are the telling selections aren't they, Sibley/Burns up top for the first test is clear then. With Root out you imagine Crawley and Denly at 3/4 is the obvious choice. Hope Leach does well!

Just spotted it's 13 v 14, disappointing. Would have been a lot of fun to make it a proper game and televise it.

Is Virdi injured?? There has been lots of video on social media of him bowling etc.... I mean he's never going to play but it's interesting he's not in either side.

Definitely a shame it's not televised, Jofra vs Stokes would have been a great watch.

This has to be Buttler's last chance saloon, even with Ed Smith's man love, as Buzz puts it.

The game will be live streamed on the ECB website from 11.
Virdi isn't going to get picked ahead of Leach, Mo or Bess which is why he isn't playing.

Excellent may take a look.
Just noticed that Jamie Overton has also not been selected. But he was behind lots in the seamers list.

Wouldn't be sleeping well if I was Sibley Jennings or Crawley this evening! Wood and Archer both fully fit and bowling for one spot in the test XI.....

Joe Denly is a lucky boy. Two dreadful wafty play and misses off Mahmood followed by off pole knocked back... no ball!

Does anyone have a link to the live stream?
I have been trying to navigate the ECB site, but it says no live matches today.

Eager for a fix...

Pitch looks quite flat. There doesnt seem to be any juice in the surface. Disappointing.

Surely its beneficial for the batsmen to find their form after the pandemic, rather than playing on a spicy wicket and eroding their confidence? West Indies have a gun attack as well.
