What they said

England captain Eoin Morgan encouraged his fringe players to stake a claim for a place at next year's T20 World Cup.

He said: "One of the challenges between now and then will be getting our strongest team on the park as often as we can to define roles.

"We don't know how long Covid is going to hang around and the scenario around selection with guys moving from bubble to bubble will continue.

"This is another opportunity for guys who would potentially sit outside that 15 to try and present their best case for winter tours and the World Cup next year."
