Joe Root off to India after family illness rules out Jonny Bairstow

Jonny Bairstow will miss England's one-day tour of India next month owing to a family illness.

Jonny Bairstow (5): Only had one innings and, although he was given out when he should not have been, the shot that led to it was poor. But he has flair and style, and will be a part of England’s middle order soon. Matches 1. Innings 1. Runs (ave.) 9 (9.00). HS 9. 100s 0. 50s 0

Trott and Bell stand firm to complete England's historic work in India

The plea was in danger of falling on deaf ears. They listened but they did not necessarily hear. When England were crushed in the opening match of the Test series against India, their coach Andy Flower was disappointed but rational. In a considered discourse he asked three times that judgement should be delivered not then, not in the immediate wake of the nine-wicket drubbing, but at the end of the series. It was an entirely reasonable request which equally could not entirely conceal the suspicion that he was playing for time.

Alastair Cook (10/10): After his 776-run Ashes series in 2010-11, Cook said he could never hope to match it. He just did. As embryonic captain and remarkable batsman, he was outstanding. This is his team now. Matches 4. Innings 8. Runs (ave.) 562 (80.28). HS 190. 100s 3. 50s 0
