Friday will be a gala afternoon into evening, won't it? England 20/20 and the Lads at Fleetwood?

Sam Curran giving the spinners some stick, just had a sequence of 464646 against Livingstone and Moeen. He had a pretty good IPL as well.

Some interesting selection dilemmas. Trying to gauge the previous first XI I guess it would have been something like:

Roy
Bairstow
Malan
Stokes
Buttler
Morgan
Woakes
Jordan
Rashid
Archer
Wood

With Moeen & Tom Curran next in line. I figure Sam Curran's probably moved ahead of Tom. Stone probably moved up the pecking order too.
