Holden scores maiden T20 ton, but rain denies Middlesex of first points

August 27 2020

Max Holden's maiden T20 ton - a 60-ball 102* - propelled Middlesex to 184.
North Group

Durham vs Lancashire, Chester-le-Street

Keaton Jennings's 63-ball 108 powered Lancashire to a 27-run win in their opening T20 Blast 2020 encounter. Along with Alex Davies (65 off 50), Jennings forged a 170-run opening stand coming at a run-rate of around 10. Only 20 runs though could come off the last 15 balls of the innings, with both Jennings and Davies falling in successive overs at the death. Despite the carnage, Mark Wood managed figures of 1 for 24 in his four overs.

Chasing, Durham lost Scott Steel and Graham Clarke inside 2.2 overs. Alex Lees scored a 39-ball 51 at the top to power the side through the middle order but regular wickets kept a cap on the run-rate. When Lees was finally dismissed in the 15th over (c Liam Hurt b Matthew Parkinson), he left his side with too much to do. Durham then needed 84 runs from only 31 balls, and all Brydon Carse's 20-ball 35 did, lower down the order, was reduce the defeat margin.

Brief Scores: Lancashire190/3 in 20 overs (Keaton Jennings 108, Alex Davies 65; Mark Wood 1-24) beat Durham163/7 in 20 overs (Alex Lees 51; Tom Bailey 2-22, Matthew Parkinson 2-36) by 27 runs

The other two games in the group - Gloucestershire vs Northamptonshire in Bristol and Derbyshire vs Leicestershire in Leicester - were abandoned because of persistent rain.

South Group

Essex vs Middlesex, Chelmsford

Max Holden's maiden T20 ton - a 60-ball 102* - propelled Middlesex to 184 in the T20 Blast opener but frequent showers meant that only 1.3 overs could be bowled in the second innings, leading to no result. Essex were 10 for no loss when the rain stopped play, but they had another shot at the target when DLS revised it to 156 in 16 overs. More rains though meant that a restart wasn't possible.

Middlesex had a rocky start to their innings, losing Stevie Eskinazi and Martin Andersson in the powerplay. But Nick Gubbins and Holden put on 71 for the third wicket, setting platform for the latter to bat through and put on a competitive total on the board.

Brief Scores: Middlesex184/5 in 20 overs (Max Holden 102*; Matthew Quinn 2-24) vs Essex10/0 - No result

Kent vs Hampshire, Canterbury

Zak Crawley (22* off 9) and Daniel Bell-Drummond (26* off 16) got Kent off to a quick start (52/0 after 4.1 overs) in pursuit of 140 when rains intervened and eventually led the encounter to a washout. Matt Milnes's 3 for 19 and Fred Klaassen's 2 for 20 earlier kept Hampshire to a below-par score, never recovering from losing three wickets in the powerplay. One of those three wickets was the run-out of Sam Northeast, the Hampshire captain, effected by Klaassen. Weatherley 49-ball 68 helped the side to a somewhat respectable total.

Brief Scores: Hampshire139/6 in 20 overs (Weatherley 68; Matt Milnes 3-19) vs Kent52/0 in 4.1 overs (Daniel Bell-Drummond 28*, Zak Crawley 22*) -No result

Central Group

Both matches in the group - Gloucestershire vs Northamptonshire in Bristol and Glamorgan vs Worcestershire in Cardiff -were washed out without a ball being bowled.

Moeen Ali named Eoin Morgan's deputy for ODI series against IrelandAli will act as skipper Eoin Morgan's deputy in the absence of Jos Buttler, who is part of the Test set-up and would be gearing up for the three-match series against Pakistan starting August 5.


IANS MANCHESTER July 21, 2020 17:19 IST

All-rounder Moeen Ali was on Tuesday named England vice-captain for their upcoming ODI series against Ireland. The two teams are scheduled to play three ODIs starting July 30.

Ali will act as skipper Eoin Morgan's deputy in the absence of Jos Buttler, who is part of the Test set-up and would be gearing up for the three-match series against Pakistan starting August 5.

"England's squad for the series itself will be confirmed next week, after two intra-squad matches (Tuesday, 11am & Friday, 2pm) and a warm-up match for England Lions vs Ireland on Sunday July 26 (2pm)," the ECB statement read.

The hosts had last week announced a 24-member training squad that will prepare for the series behind closed doors at Ageas Bowl.

Also, there was no place for opener Alex Hales, who continues to be frozen out of the national set-up after being tested positive for recreational drugs just before the 2019 World Cup, which hosts England eventually won.

England and Ireland are scheduled to play three ODIs with all the matches to be hosted at Ageas Bowl in Southampton on July 30, August 1 and August 4 respectively.

England's ODI Training Group: Eoin Morgan (Middlesex) captain), Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Jonathan Bairstow (Yorkshire), Tom Banton (Somerset), Sam Billings (Kent), Henry Brookes (Warwickshire), Brydon Carse (Durham), Tom Curran (Surrey), Liam Dawson (Hampshire), Ben Duckett (Nottinghamshire), Laurie Evans (Sussex), Richard Gleeson (Lancashire), Lewis Gregory (Somerset), Sam Hain (Warwickshire), Tom Helm (Middlesex), Liam Livingstone (Lancashire), Saqib Mahmood (Lancashire), Matthew Parkinson (Lancashire), Adil Rashid (Yorkshire), Jason Roy (Surrey), Phil Salt (Sussex), Reece Topley (Surrey), James Vince (Hampshire), David Willey (Yorkshire).

Qualification pathway for the 2023 World Cup
ESPNcricinfo Ltd

Cricket World Cup ODI Super League
Teams: 12 Full Members + Netherlands
Matches: 24 ODIs per team starting in May 2020

In the past, the ODI rankings table was used for qualification, but the table was unbalanced and not, intrinsically, fair. The easiest way to make sure a team below you couldn't overtake you on the rankings table - say Afghanistan or Ireland - was to simply not schedule a series against them. The rankings table also led to unbalanced fixture lists by virtue, for example, of India's current ranking based on 56 matches whereas Ireland's is based off 29 ODIs in the same time frame.

That's no longer possible in the new structure. Each of the 13 teams will have their qualification status for the 2023 World Cup determined by an equal number of matches. Each of the 13 teams will host four home and four away series, with each consisting of three ODIs, that will count toward World Cup qualification.

Due to scheduling constraints, each team will miss playing four of the 12 possible teams in the Super League.

At the end of the Super League, the top seven teams in addition to World Cup host India will qualify for the 2023 World Cup. The bottom five teams will get a second chance by dropping back into the 2022 World Cup Qualifier. The team that finishes at the bottom of the ODI Super League also runs the risk of being relegated into Cricket World Cup

After the Ireland series (3) eng has to play 3 more series at home & 4 more series away from england

Topley,Banton,Willey,Denley in eng ODI team vs Ireland


Cricbuzz
Reece Topley recalled for Ireland ODIs
July 27 2020

Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler have been rested for the Ireland ODIs

Reece Topley has earned a recall to the England ODI side after almost four years, for the upcoming three-match One-Day International series against Ireland. Apart from him, the England selectors have also named Sam Billings and David Willey in the side. The England selectors have also named the uncapped trio of Richard Gleeson, Lewis Gregory and Liam Livingstone in the reserves.

Meanwhile, among the regulars, Ben Stokes, Joe Root, Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer have been rested from the 14-man squad for the series, named on Monday (July 27). These players are currently part of the England Test squad playing against West Indies, with the series scheduled to end on July 28, two days before the start of the first ODI against Ireland.

Moeen Ali and Jonny Bairstow were initially part of the Test training group before they were released, and were subsequently drafted into the ODI training group ahead of the Ireland series. Joe Denly was part of the Test squad before he was released ahead of the third Test, and joined the ODI group.

England ODI Squad :saurabh: : Eoin Morgan (Captain), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Joe Denly, Saqib Mahmood, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Reece Topley, James Vince, David Willey

Reserves: Richard Gleeson, Lewis Gregory, Liam Livingstone

"We are developing excellent strength in depth in white-ball cricket," James Taylor, the England selector, said. "Even though a number of Test players are unavailable, there is great competition for places, as we have seen during the intra-squad matches and the England Lions warm-up match.

"There are a number of players who'll feel unlucky not to have made the final squad and that says a lot about how many players we currently have pushing hard for selection at the highest level.

"These ODIs against Ireland are an opportunity to continue the exciting evolution of the ODI side, while also looking towards the T20 WC in 2021.

"In this challenging season, everyone at England appreciates the hard work and dedication of the county coaches and support staff who have helped these players to get ready for competitive cricket."

The three-match series will be the first in the newly launched ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League, with all the three games set to be played at the Ageas Bowl. The series is set to begin on July 30.

Malan back for t20i team vs Pakistan

Willey, Malan return for Pakistan T20Is
August 18, 2020


England rest Test regulars - Joe Root, Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler for the T20I series.

In what will be the first T20I series for England following the COVID-19 pandemic break, England have rested their Test regulars - Joe Root, Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Sam Curran, Mark Wood and Jos Buttler -- for the three-match series against Pakistan. David Willey, who was the Player of the Series in the ODIs against Ireland, makes a return to the T20I squad - having last played the format in May 2019.

The 14-member squad, announced on Tuesday (August 18), was similar to the one that played the one-day series against Ireland recently. The squad, led by Eoin Morgan, included Joe Denly, Lewis Gregory, Chris Jordan and Dawid Malan in place of Liam Livingstone, James Vince, Liam Dawson and Reece Topley -- from the players who were part of the side that played against Ireland.

However, Livingstone and Topley - along with Pat Brown - have been named in the reserves.

Ben Stokes, who has flown to New Zealand for personal reasons, hasn't been selected for the series.

Squad: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jonathan Bairstow, Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Lewis Gregory, Chris Jordan, Saqib Mahmood, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, David Willey.

Commenting on the selection of the squad, selector Ed Smith, said: "In this crowded international summer, players who are currently in the Test match bio-secure bubble for the Pakistan Test series are not included in this squad. (The IT20s begin three days after the scheduled last day of the final Test). We want to give multi-format players some opportunity to rest and refresh, while still selecting strong squads for every series. We will announce the squad for the Australia T20 series at a later date."

The ECB has also confirmed the coaching team for the series, which will be headed by Graeme Thorpe and assisted by Paul Collingwood. Marcus Trescothick will serve as the batting coach and Jon Lewis as the bowling coach. Lewis will be assisted by Azhar Mahmood while James Foster will work with the wicketkeepers.

All the three matches of the series, which is set to begin on August 28, will be played at Old Trafford, Manchester.

Reserves: Pat Brown, Liam Livingstone, Reece Topley.

Buttler, Archer return to limited-overs squads for Australia series

England will play three ODIs and as many T20Is against Ashes rivals.

Having been rested for the T20I series against Pakistan, Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler return to England's limited-overs squad for the upcoming series against Australia. Joe Root hasn't been included in the T20I squad while he's part of the team for the three ODIs against Australia while David Willey doesn't find a place in both squads.

Mark Wood and Sam Curran have also been included in both the T20I and ODI squads while Chris Woakes makes it to the 50-over team. With the return of the front-line pacers, Saqib Mahmood, has to make way, with the Lancashire quick now among the reserves. Liam Livingstone is the other reserve for the T20I series while Joe Denly is the stand-by for the ODI leg along with Mahmood.

T20I Squad: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonathan Bairstow, Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

Reserves: Liam Livingstone, Saqib Mahmood

ODI Squad: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonathan Bairstow, Tom Banton, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood

Reserves: Joe Denly, Saqib Mahmood

Jason Roy is still recovering from a left side-strain and hasn't been considered for the T20I matches. However, he'll remain with the squad inside the bio-bubble, "with a view to demonstrating his fitness for the Royal London Internationals". Ben Stokes remains unavailable, having been granted an indefinite compassionate leave from the ECB to be with his father who was diagnosed with brain cancer.

"These two series against Australia provide an exciting end to the summer. We have selected strong squads. We are also continuing to develop depth in preparation for the upcoming T20 WCs," said National Selector Ed Smith.

The inclusion of several of their front-line players for the Australia series is the first time this summer that England have been able to go in with strong limited-overs outfits. Eoin Morgan, the ODI and T20I skipper, had recently pointed out that it would be a challenge for them to get their strongest team out on the field regularly, which affects their preparation for the T20 World CUp next year.

"One of the challenges between now and the World Cup next year is going to be getting our strongest team on the park as often as we can. I don't think we can have a scenario where we can play the majority of our games with a half-strength team and then expect to go into a World Cup as contenders when guys don't know their roles or haven't been familiarised with them," Morgan had recently said.

The T20I series will be held at The Ageas Bowl on September 4, 6 and 8. Old Trafford will host the ODI leg with the matches to be played on September 11, 13 and 16.
