EssvDer could be over quite quickly. After a couple of missteps, Essex back on course for promotion.

Vince has been axed after playing against SL once and getting a 50 but maybe those around the team decided he needed to step back from the step and play for Hampshire

Pleased for Dawson.

@nickcricket That's the way I see it. Hasn't really done much wrong in white ball stuff but he'd only be bench warming for the opening duo anyway.

Surprised they haven't rested anyone, maybe a sign they don't think they will be going to Bangladesh?

And congratulations to Joe Root for being picked in the Test squad!!!

George Potter - Surpised Bairstow isn't being 'Rested' because I don't see him playing if Stokes is fit. Unless Buttler isn't fit to keep? I wonder if England will drop to 5 bowlers although the bowler I would leave out would be Moeen, just to give him a break and let him work on his bowling not in the runup to a game
