Despite having previously made available for the first three 50 over games. Absolute shambles.

Well they want to be seen as not being even more cruel to Durham after points deductions and allowing Stokes to play ipl

Don't agree with the reasoning.

But i don't think it's a bad thing that we get another couple in whilst we still have a strong line up. Least they will have a game under their belt for when we lose everyone.

A reasonable request by the ECB to rest Plunkett and Willey when they have recently returned from injury and how both the 50 Over Cup and Ireland matches are scheduled.

Having the England quintet available for two further 50 over matches against Warwickshire and Northamptonshire is an added bonus.

No Pyrah, no party

It is a shambles - and in the absence of any explanation. If I were the ECB I would pretend that there were concerns about niggles to cover the complete shambles that is their organisation of player availability.

Willey in particular but arguably both of them would surely welcome an additional competitive game given that they have just come back from injury.

On the plus side, Mark Wood has also been rested. So don't go thinking the ECB were being kind to Durham!

And Anderson is available for both Roses matches.

To be honest, in the context of all of the other decisions that have been made about England players, giving the two quick bowlers a break to stop them playing 4 games in a week doesn't seem to bad to me. Add that to the fact we've all 5 available for another 2 games and I'd say we're better off now than we were at the start of the day.

I have sympathy with Gale and Moxon and they are unsure who will be available one week to the next so next to impossible to put down any plans. Guess this is a test of any support staff really.

Not sure if I am sorry Mark Wood is not playing as his bowling is always worth watching but I remember he was the difference between the two sides last season in both white ball competitions.
