England start their tour today with a warm up match against a CWI XI in Barbados. Good news for Jack who gets the nod over Adil Rashid. No place for Jos Buttler although I think he'll just be rested as he's had plenty of cricket in the BBL.

Some on here seem to think it is ok to play football other do not.

Jos Buttler has admitted it "probably doesn't make too much sense" for England to play football as part of their training routine.
Butter, England's vice-captain, insisted the players were "very careful" and tried to keep things safe while playing. But he conceded there were "obvious risks" involved and confirmed they would accept it if Ashley Giles decided they should no longer play.

Baggers, is it a 1, 2 or 3-day game, do you know?

Two 2-day matches over the next four days.

See Olly Stone has broken down again. Maybe an opportunity for an Overton?

Jamie has a chance on the pace front. It'd be interesting

Fairly and boringly predictable. Will he survuve the whole tour?

What on earth is the point of these warm-up "matches" where anyone can bat twice, both sides field as many players as they like, a draw is the agreed result beforehand (bit like Russian masters playing each other at international chess tournaments in the 60s), and any competitive element is 100% absent?
How does this benefit anyone more than four days of net practice honestly styled as such?
I recall the days when the match with a touring team used to be a county side's high point of the season, barring a home Gillette semi-final. I don't know what's going off out there.

A civilised time for some test cricket, no Jack, will we win without him?

Looking at the state of the Barbados wicket I am surprised Jack isn't in. The conversations after the Sri Lanka series was that Rashid was the preferred spunner for the Windies. Time for him to justify that. Nothing happening presently.

No hope for England now.

Rashid's match figures by lunch 24 overs for 98 runs
