So the Legendary Economist is back!.
And a 34 year old youngster who despite daring to score a few runs in Australia in the tests, and despite speaking his mind on the Close Club Culture and Kevin Pietersen being a help in the dressingroom, is back as well.

Moeen Ali, despite doing OK in the West Indies ODIs, finds himself dropped!. Ian Bell is selected for T-20Is!.
And the most unthinkable and scandalous act by the English selectors, after poaching Paul Farbrace, they have now denied Sri Lanka the valuable services of Jade Dernbach!!!.

On a serious note, must say I am really disappointed. Not many new faces, they keep going back to the old, tried, tested and failed formulations. Someone like James Vince could have been an interesting and refreshing choice.

I must say I'm disappointed too MSP

What does Hales have to do to be given a shot in ODI's? Ali is surely better in ODI than T20! 

As for Bresnan still being selected for one day stuff, I'm beyond words

Vince, Hales and Ali should have been there in the ODI squad, Bell shouldn't have been there in the T-20I squad, and Bresnan should have been left alone to play Championship cricket with his county, he was an automatic test selection under the old clique in tests, and he was, unlike in limited over cricket, was half-decent at times in the longer format.

I think Lumb's very unlucky to miss out after his century against the West Indies, and considering Carberry was picked his age wasn't a issue.

Fredye Flintoff is set to make a county comeback in T-20s. I am sure the England selectors are all full of excitement and would be considering him for the test match lineup!.

The England cricket team have a free hit this summer - most of the media will be focused on the greatest sporting event of them all, the Football World Cup, so the cricket team can duck under the radar.

Didn't watch this : I am keen , but not going to get up at 3am to watch a random t20 !
But , like Duty , I am not particularly bothered by the result. Though it does indicate England still appear to have a real problem with "death" bowling.
Hales did himself no harm . Woakes appears to have had a half decent match ? And perhaps the most interesting thing was an apparently handy debut for Gurney ...how did he impress those of you who saw it ? Left arm bowler would be handy...Without suggesting you can read too much into four overs , I wonder if anyone is prepared to make any predictions based on what they saw ? Speculative only , of course - I won't hold you to it  Smile

Batting where? Bell has scored heavily since his return to the team in 2012 and Cook is captain - I'd dump the latter personally, but that's clearly not going to happen.

With Trott out of the picture for the foreseeable future, move Bell to 3 and Hales to open with Cook I'd say

Very good performance by England today led encouragingly by the young uns

Balance batted very well aided by Bell. 

Gurney again impressed with the ball

However the best performance goes to...

Sir Chris Jordan. Bowled with great aggression and intelligence, and smashed Malinga all over the park. Becoming harder to see him not getting a test cap in the near future. Certainly should be ahead of reliable Tim in the pecking order I feel

Disappointed to see Carberry picked again for a few reasons:

1) What does someone like Alex Hales have to do to get picked who could be the future, good performances in the England T20 side and has a decent average in 1 day cricket for Notts. Carberry obviously isn't the future at 33 and isn't exactly on fire, would rather see someone like Hales expand into the 50 over side.

2) How Compton was dropped and not recalled after being critical in the media now Carberry has done the same and is recalled despite having a worse average than Compton in tests and being 3 years older, so if he is selected for test matches I will be disappointed there.

while I would have liked to see Hales play personally, given that Carberry was in the initial squad it's the only decision that really makes sense. If he was ahead of Hales in the pecking order before the squads were picked, then he still is (unless you give a disproportionate weight to the solitary T20).

Having said that, I'm not really convinced by Carberry, I'm just not sure he has the range of shots to be a successful international player (in limited overs at least). Still, let's see what he can do here.

SL have made a solid start here, 66-1 after 17 overs.

Good recovery by England to limit Sri Lanka to 256/8; Anderson getting his 250th ODI wicket on the way.

England should get this.

I would be more worried about Root, he does not seem to be international standard. Morgan, although he has done it in the past is just that, the past. England will get lucky the odd matches but will be found wanting more often than not.

Root averages pretty much 40 in Odis and T20 at only 23. 

If that's not international standard I'll have some of what you're smoking

Root is hit and miss, he has some very good innings' around some very ordinary. I do not see him as being at International level.

In his 33 T20 and ODI's inngings' (combined) he has 5 not outs which lifts his average and has only 1 ODI century and 6 50's (1 50 in T20).

To me that says that he is not international level and I see so many flaws in his technique to feel that he will not make it. That's just me though and I am probably wrong.

no surprises with the selection for England.

and a good start too with the early wicket of Dilshan. Anderson gets one to nip back a bit and catches the inside-edge, decent catch by Buttler diving to his left.

and Thirimane continues to be Anderson's bunny, attempting to charge the bowler but Anderson digs it in and Thirimane's hack results in a simple edge through to Buttler. SL 17-2 after 5 overs.

Jordan strikes again, bit of a gift that one as really it's over-pitched and wide, but Chandiman drives it straight to Bell at cover. England on top.
