With the ICC T20 World Cup, scheduled to be held in India next October, it will be interesting to see how the European Central Bank and Eoin Morgan go about managing Archer's workload.

So desperate were Cricket South Africa to reassure the touring England team that they would not be exposed to coronavirus in the wake of a second of their own players testing positive last week that they imposed no-go areas within the accommodation. His innings included 17 sixes, the most sixes by an individual in an ODI innings.
The agreement will cover all worldwide cricket matches played by the South Africa men's cricket team. Joe Root was the star for England as he hammered 83 off just 44 deliveries helping his side to a thrilling two wicket win with two balls remaining.More news: Utah to play at Washington on Saturday, November 28

"To start with, you need to try and figure out who your best six or seven batsmen are, then try and get them in the roles that best suit them and the team, and that gives you the best chance of winning the games". Is there anything more appealing to the winter-confined cricket lover than a glimpse of the bright southern sun, radiating warmth on to a cricket field as we trudge towards the end of another year under ash-dappled skies?More news: New restrictions placed on time travel when the animal crosses: New boundaries
Ben Stokes looks certain to play as one all-rounder, but whether England will play another all-rounder in the number seven batting position is unclear. It would be interesting to see whether they would pick Sam Curran or go in with Moeen Ali to add depth to their spin department. Their limited-overs engagement in February was a precursor to the T20 World Cup, which had everything been fine in the world, would have been over by now. For now, Jason Roy would be the ideal choice alongside Jos Buttler, but given Ben Stokes and Sam Curran's opening stint this year during IPL, and Dawid Malan earlier this year, Roy must be cautious about performing to secure his spot. There's a pace-race to be won and the competitors are Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood. Chris Woakes, Liam Livingstone, Lewis Gregory and Olly Stone are in ODI squad.
