This amazing game of Cricket has had its ups and down through the years, and now it seems like it’s the best time that the game can do something to stay on top of it’s ‘career’. The t20 world cup made a lot of different with the audience around the world, and woke up some of the long sleeping national teams to try and do something with the cup the following year.
A sport only played in England and it’s colonies, mostly in Asia, has the chance to become a world-wide sport. Follow jackpot bet online on facebook or on our web site with the same name and be imformed.
Vince may well have been chosen for the first Test against Sri Lanka regardless of his retirement and it is more likely that Nick Compton owes his survival to the cruel twist of fate that cost Taylor his career.
But it will be Vince batting at five against Sri Lanka this week, the position Taylor filled in England’s last Test match against South Africa at Centurion in January, hoping to make the place his own.
He has the advantage of being picked in form with a hundred here at Headingley for Hampshire a month ago and also has the assurance in his own mind that he plays in the positive style this England management wants to promote.
He admitted batting at five between Joe Root and Ben Stokes is a wonderful place to make a debut and at 25 feels ready for the step up.
“Having some runs under my belt here gives me some confidence for Thursday. Generally my game has felt in pretty good touch this season so it is good time to start in an England shirt,” he said.
“I’ve been a part of the T20 side which is good to be involved in and good fun but for me the ultimate thing is Test cricket. It is a bit more hard work. I still enjoy the shorter formats but I think the ultimate goal for me has always been to play Test cricket.
“I only came up yesterday and had that dinner last night (ECB awards dinner) so I’m still getting to know a few of the Test guys – Jimmy, Broady and Cooky. I have met them briefly but I don’t know them as well as the other guys in the team. It is a nice environment to come in to and it seems a good mood already.
“I haven’t been told for definite where I am batting but looking at the side it (five) is a nice place to start. If the ball is a little bit older and the bowlers a little bit more tired then that is going to make things easier. I didn’t feel under pressure when I went into the side in the Twenty20 squad over the winter, you are told to express yourself, play the way you play, that’s why you have been picked.
“In this team you are not under pressure to do anything different. The majority of people in the T20 and ODI squad, the guys have played how they have done for their county, with no fear, and it’s good to watch.”
