New-look England seek home comfort June 11, 2014,by Julian GUYER LONDON, June 11, 2014 (AFP) - England will look to put the memory of their 5-0 Ashes drubbing in Australia behind them and prove there is Test life beyond Kevin Pietersen, when they face Sri Lanka in the first of a two-match series at Lord’s today. And with England still smarting from the run out, backing up, of Jos Buttler during Sri Lanka’s 3-2 series-clinching one-day win at Edgbaston, the Test campaign has been "spiced up" in the words of home captain Alastair Cook. Six players who featured in England’s last Test, a crushing 281-run defeat by Australia aren’t in England’s 12 for Lord’s. Star batsman Pietersen, whose international career was terminated by the England and Wales Cricket Board after the Ashes on account of his ‘distracted’ nature is the most high-profile absentee. But he has been joined on the sidelines by opener Michael Carberry, wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow, seamer Boyd Rankin, leg-spinner Scott Borthwick an ...

Jonny Bairstow doing his england credentials no harm. Especially with Matt Prior injured currently.
England wicketkeeper Matt Prior has suffered a setback to his hopes of being recalled to the national squad as he continues his struggle with an Achilles injury, which saw him being ruled out of Sussex's LV Championship match on Sunday. The wicketkeeper, looking to win back his England place after being dropped for the final two Ashes Tests, started the season as a batsman only but after missing two county matches it had been suggested he could return against Lancashire. According to The Guardian, Prior is running out of time to convince new England coach Peter Moores, to pick him for the first Test against Sri Lanka on June 12 after he was dropped after three Tests of the disastrous Ashes tour in favour of Jonny Bairstow. However, the report mentioned that he showed glimpses of his old form by scoring a hundred against Middlesex in April. Yorkshire's Bairstow has been injured, suffering a broken thumb, but he is set to return against Durham on Sunday, the report added.
England wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow says he is disappointed he will not get to play with Kevin Pietersen again. Ahmed ali
England will play their most inexperienced test line up in years tomorrow when they're set to play 3 test debutantes. Fast bowler Boyd Rankin, Leg spinner Scott Borthwick and Left handed batter Gary Ballance are all expected to make their debuts as England try and stop a 5-0 whitewash. So along with the three debutantes they will play Root (15games), Stokes (3games) and Jonny Bairstow (13games) plus Cook, Bell, Pietersen, Broad and Anderson. - Josh
England to blood 3 debutants in 5th Test Desperate England are set to throw three debutants to the wolves in the fifth Ashes Test, but captain Alastair Cook has ruled out a return for dumped wicketkeeper Matt Prior. Big fast bowler Boyd Rankin, legspinner Scott Borthwick and left-handed batsman Gary Ballance are all preparing for a baptism of fire at the SCG as England fight to avoid a 5-0 series whitewash. Australian captain Michael Clarke said he'd be "surprised" if the experienced Prior wasn't also recalled in Sydney, but Cook said rookie gloveman Jonny Bairstow deserved a second chance despite struggling in Melbourne. Only six months ago it was Clarke's Australian side that resembled a transit lounge. Now the shoe is on the other foot and England are set to use 18 players for the series. Cook expects to be leading an unsettled line-up until England start winning matches, but denied Rankin, Borthwick and Ballance would be like lambs to the slaughter. "We have got this Test where people have the chance ...

Fourth Test Wrap-Up 2013/14 Commonwealth Bank Series Fourth Test Match: Australia v England December 26, 27, 28, 29, 2013. Played at: Melbourne Cricket Ground. Toss: Australia (Field) Team Changes: Australia: No Change England: IN: Jonny Bairstow, Monty Panesar OUT: Matt Prior, Graeme Swann. England 255 & 179 Defeated by Australia 204 & 2/231 Australia won by eight wickets Umpires: K Dharmasena (Sri Lanka) and A Dar (Pakistan) The Australians have won the fourth test at Melbourne inside four days, making it the shortest test in length thus far this series. The home side won the toss on an overcast Day 1 morning, with Michael Clarke this time electing to field. Cook and Carberry fought valiantly until Siddle picked up Cook. After being 1/71 at lunch, the Australians were better in the second session picking up more wickets. Michael Carberry left alone a Shane Watson ball that decked back to clip off stump, and Joe Root feathered Harris through to the keeper. Kevin Pietersen and Ian Bell resisted well befor ...
MELBOURNE: Mitchell Johnson electrified a world record Test crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground with a searing new ball spell to capture two late wickets and leave England a rocky 226 for six at the close of the opening day of the fourth Test on Thursday. Scorecard Roared on by a heaving crowd of 91,092, the aggressive paceman steamed in to remove number six Ben Stokes and wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow in quick succession to put Australia on top after Kevin Pietersen threatened to win the day for England. The under-fire Pietersen was reprieved on six and 41, but quelled his attacking instincts to compile a defiant, if theatrical, 67 not out at stumps, with Tim Bresnan hanging on desperately with one run. Seamer Ryan Harris captured his second wicket when he had Ian Bell caught behind by wicketkeeper Brad Haddin for 27 at the drinks break after tea. The late wickets were a relief for Australia captain Michael Clarke who opted to field after winning his fourth successive toss of the series. Bell and Pieters ...
Teams:   As expected, Australia named an unchanged team for the 4th test in a row. There were injury concerns to Ryan Harris in particular but he seemed to be okay and, with it not expecting to be quite as good for spinners as normal, the temptation to go in with 2 spinners was not really there.   Chris Rogers, David Warner, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke, Steve Smith, George Bailey, Brad Haddin, Mitchell Johnson, Peter Siddle, Ryan Harris, Nathan Lyon   England named as close to an unchanged team as possible, given the retirement of Graeme Swann. While there must have been a temptation to experiment and try all players from their squad, the only other change was to replace the out of form Matt Prior with the very much in-form Jonny Bairstow. Gary Ballance, for his part, is very unlucky to be left out, as is Steve Finn. Stuart Broad it was determined had not broken his foot after all, and, according to Shane Warne, could have bowled in the 2nd innings of the 3rd test in Perth! Warne went on to claim that ...

FOR IMMEDIATE USE Friday, December 13, 2013 England name Lions Squad to face Sri Lanka A England selectors today named a 15-man England Lions squad to face Sri Lanka A in February and March 2014. Chris Woakes will captain the side that includes a number of players who have represented England at a senior level across different formats.

( Sydney Daily Telegraph: "The Poms can't handle a sledge but they sure can handle a drink" ) England cricket stars Stuart Broad, Kevin Pietersen and Jonny Bairstow have been cleared of any wrongdoing after reports of a late-night drinking session at an Adelaide club. Monday was a rest day for the team following their arrival from Alice Springs, and the England and Wales Cricket Board said it had no issue with the trio's actions. "They are free to do as they please -- they are grown men. There has been no breach of team protocol," an ECB spokeswoman told reporters. (Rmra)

Australia (probable) 1 Chris Rogers, 2 David Warner, 3 Shane Watson, 4 Michael Clarke (capt), 5 Steven Smith, 6 George Bailey, 7 Brad Haddin (wk), 8 Mitchell Johnson, 9 Peter Siddle, 10 Ryan Harris, 11 Nathan Lyon. England (probable) 1 Alastair Cook (capt), 2 Michael Carberry, 3 Jonathan Trott, 4 Kevin Pietersen, 5 Ian Bell, 6 Joe Root, 7 Matt Prior / Jonny Bairstow (wk), 8 Stuart Broad, 9 Graeme Swann, 10 Chris Tremlett, 11 James Anderson. "Australia has a proud record at the Gabba. This is a record we want to enhance … The extra pace and bounce of the Gabba makes for exciting cricket." Michael Clarke, Australia's captain "We all know that despite all the hype beforehand, what happens in the lead-up is irrelevant. A lot of words are said, a lot of mind games supposedly happen, but come Thursday morning with the crowd behind them, that's when it counts." Alastair Cook, the England captain
The Ashes: England's Jonny Bairstow ready for wicketkeeping duty in first Test if Matt Prior can't play
Sorry about the delay in this post, here is an update on day two matches of domestic cricket. CA Inv XI vs ENG The CA Invitational XI was dismissed for 304 early in the day. Ryan Carters top scored with 94 (200), Peter Nevill made 83 (169). Steve Finn may have booked his place in the first Ashes Test, picking up a five-wicket haul, Stuart Broad also picked up four wickets. In reply, England go into stumps at 5/302. Jonathan Trott is the current top scorer with 83 (105), Alastair Cook continued his good form with 81 (136), and Kevin Pietersen's injury scare is behind him as he made his way to 57 (71). Joe Root (26* off 30) and Jonny Bairstow (11 off 36) are the two not out batsmen at stumps. TAS vs VIC Matthew Wade's first century as Victorian captain has put the Bushrangers in a strong position on another rain-effected day. At stumps, Victoria is 6/339, with Wade on 107* (186) and Dan Christian on 17* (35). Earlier in the day, Rob Quiney's fighting innings came to an end on 82 (178), with night watchman f ...

England play their final Ashes warm-up game against Cricket Australia Invitational XI tomorrow night at 11.30pm (UK time)/10.30am Wednesday (local time) in a 4 day affair. England vice-captain Matt Prior has been ruled out with a tear to his left calf and is also a possible doubt for the first Test match at Brisbane, which means Jonny Bairstow will don the gloves. England are expected to field a near full-strength XI, after the previous warm-up game at Hobart affected preparations with 2 of the 4 days being completely washed out. The Cricket Australia Invitational XI is: 1. Ed Cowan (TAS), 2. Aaron Finch (VIC), 3. Callum Ferguson (SA), 4. Adam Voges (WA), 5. Ben Rohrer (NSW), 6. Ryan Carters (NSW), 7. Peter Nevill (NSW) - Captain, 8. Stephen O’Keefe (NSW), 9. Josh Lalor (NSW), 10. Chris Tremain (NSW), 11. Nic Bills (NSW). What would your England XI be? And what do you make of the Invitational XI Australia have put out?
The Ashes 2013-14 Prior's calf tear puts Bairstow in line : Jonny Bairstow may be in line for an unexpected turn as England's Ashes wicketkeeper after scans revealed Matt Prior had suffered a left calf tear during the Australia A match in Hobart and is ruled out of the final warm-up match against an Invitational XI in Sydney. Prior's diagnosis leaves him in genuine doubt for the first Test in Brisbane, heaping pressure on Bairstow to step in for the position after it appeared he had only a reservist's role in the team director Andy Flower's plans for the series. Bairstow made numerous starts in England at No. 6 but was dropped for the final match at the Oval and arrived down under as the back-up gloveman. "It's not ideal but it gives some good opportunity to Jonny Bairstow as well," Ian Bell said. "We've seen in the past how important it is to get the whole squad playing cricket before the series starts, because you never know with five Test matches, players need cricket under their belt. Matt is a key pa ...
Cook wants 'big runs' from batsmen Perth (australia) , November 02 England captain Alastair Cook has said "big runs" are the order of the day if they are to win a fourth successive Ashes during the upcoming series in Australia. England may have won 3-0 in the recent home series yet they did so with their highest total being the 377 they posted in the drawn finale at The Oval. They compensated by seizing control of matches at key moments, but conditions in Australia are unlikely to be so forgiving should England routinely fail to make 400 in the first innings. During their 3-1 series win in Australia in 2010/11, England made 517 for one to draw the first Test in Brisbane and in the three matches they won, all by an innings, posted first-innings scores of 620 for five, 513 and 644. With many of the same batsmen involved again -- although the issue of who bats at number six could yet see the current incumbent Jonny Bairstow, not involved in 2010/11, ousted by Yorkshire team-mate Gary Ballance -- Cook is look ...
I reckon Zimbabwe born Gary Ballance has done enough today to get a Test spot ahead of English born Jonny Bairstow and Michael Carberry
Jonny Bairstow and Steven Finn are likely Ashes starters, if the bookmakers are to be believed

Anybody know why Jonny Bairstow not in any of the limited overs squads
Yorkshire have Gary Ballance ans Jonny Bairstow back for their County Championship game against Durham which starts at Scarborough today
poor Jonny Bairstow being a good case in question. Desperately needs a couple of seasons of first-class cricket.
Hi Fred. Any idea why Jonny Bairstow is not in any limited overs squad
So, Gary Ballance makes the ODI squad against Ireland in Sept but not the NatWest Series against Aus. Jonny Bairstow not picked for either.
No Chris Woakes or Jonny Bairstow in the ODI squads, while KP isn't rested. Thoughts?
Ballance is not in the ODI squad for the forthcoming series against Australia, which Joe Root is in. Jonny Bairstow not in any squad.
Jonny Bairstow is a notable absentee from the squad. Chris Woakes is dropped after his inclusion in the squad.
I thought Jonny Bairstow put a decent shift in there
is that Jonny Bairstow in the crowd?
I would much prefer Joe Root coming in next instead of Jonny Bairstow
Yorkshire boys gonna do us proud in the come on Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow and Tim Bresnan
Don't panic folks, only Jonny Bairstow in next!

Get your iPhone insurance today!
Doesn't look as though many of you retain much faith in Jonny Bairstow to deliver in England's middle order. Who should replace him?
Great bowling from bresnan and anderson today - got a cheeky hi-five off jonny bairstow and Joe Root too. Great day!
