Liam Livingstone called-up in England Test squad for New Zealand tour

Root fit to play in ODI opener Warner in doubt

England test squad: Joe Root (c, Yorkshire), Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), James Anderson (Lancashire), Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Alastair Cook (Essex), Mason Crane (Hampshire), Ben Foakes (Surrey), Liam Livingstone (Lancashire), Dawid Malan (Middlesex), Craig Overton (Somerset), Ben Stokes (Durham), Mark Stoneman (Surrey), James Vince (Hampshire), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Mark Wood (Durham).

His first-class record is impressive, averaging 48.75, and he scored two hundreds, including a double, and three half-centuries for Lancashire in the County Championship last season.

England dropped Ashes trio of Gary Ballance, Jake Ball and Tom Curran while including paceman Mark Wood and uncapped batsman Liam Livingstone for the two-Test tour of New Zealand in March.

Looking back now, however, Livingstone believes that experience will stand him in good stead as his England career progresses.

Livingstone's call-up follows his decision to forego the opportunity to ply his trade in the T20 leagues around the globe, and instead spend a second winter away with the England Lions in Australia.

"He's been unbelievable for me, he's been unbelievably generous with his time and he hasn't needed to be", he said.

Randle spent most of the season using his superior athleticism to get the better of backup centers and power forwards as a scorer. As a subsidiary of the Walt Disney Company, ESPN is responsible for generating revenue.

Alex Hales (52) and captain Eoin Morgan (81no) were in impressive form in Thursday's warm-up win over a Cricket Australia XI, while Plunkett and Mark Wood produced the sort of pace which was absent from the Test attack. "I wanted to work on different areas of my red-ball game, and I was able to do that for our first two weeks in Brisbane".

While the likes of Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow and Chris Woakes all head into tomorrow's first one-day global in Melbourne bearing the bruises of the Test reverse, others are bringing a fresh dynamic.

"To see the amount of interest out there, it was quite exciting", he said.

There was a small but important piece of history made in an otherwise low-key warm up game at the Drummoyne Oval when Claire Polosak became the first women to umpire an England men's cricket match. A lot of our guys didn't play in the Ashes, so we're full of energy and full of beans.

And the identity of one of his mentors is well known to England fans:. I'm just another umpire.
