Plunkett reveals why the ODI series against Australia is extremely important

Australia vs England: Joe Root Fit To Play In Series Opener, David Warner Doubtful Root fit to play in ODI series opener, Warner in doubt

Both Vince and Stoneman averaged under 30 with the bat in Australia against an admittedly high-class four-man bowling attack.

Vince can probably count himself the most fortunate and this tour looms as make or break for his global ambitions. He scored the fastest double century by an Englishman in Tests against the mighty Proteas. Stoneman has had less opportunities but he too needs a big score in New Zealand to cement his place as Alastair Cook's opening partner. "It follows on from Haseeb Hameed's England debut in India in 2016 as well as having five Academy graduates (including Livingstone) in the England Lions squad for the West Indies tour in February and March".

"They've had a very challenging Ashes series but it's still a very talented group of boys and I still think it's a very exciting time for English cricket", he added.

"We are particularly impressed with the way he bats against spin and is equally adept against the seamers, " said Whitaker.

"After a frustrating period with injuries, Mark is now back to full fitness and is looking forward to being part of our test plans".

Mark Wood enjoyed less success, sending down ten expensive, wicketless overs but doing enough to suggest he does have the much-needed extra pace England were so lacking in the Ashes.

Hales had not played for his country since his involvement in an incident in Bristol in September, which saw team-mate Ben Stokes arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm.

Donald Trump blasts court for protecting DACA 'Dreamers'
Marcelo Betti is an immigration lawyer in Traverse City who has worked with DACA recipients in northern MI . That's important because it would allow the House to pass the bill with only Republican votes.

"Should the ECB Board receive formal confirmation that Stokes has either been charged or that he will face no charges, they would convene within 48 hours to make a decision on his availability for the team at that stage". As things stand, however, he would not be available for the two Test matches in New Zealand.

Despite their poor outing with the willow in the 0-4 Ashes humiliation against Australia, James Vince and Mark Stoneman have retained their places in England's Test squad.

Liam Livingstone, England's uncapped selection for the Test tour of New Zealand in March and April, believes he is better placed to impress in red-ball than white-ball cricket, after missing the chance to establish his credentials in two T20 appearances against South Africa last summer.

Ballance did not feature in the series, Ball featured only in the first test and Curran was a late addition to the squad before turning out in Melbourne and Sydney.

The first game on the Blacks Caps tour will be a day-night Test which starts in Auckland on March 22.

"I'm desperate to play for England but there are probably a couple of games I played in the past when I shouldn't have and that has damaged my reputation with coaches and selectors".
