Debutante Boyd Rankin aside, England's bowlers were smashed out of the game in their T20 International against New Zealand
A changed England side will be looking to put the ghosts of Sunday behind them against the Kiwis at the Oval.
On Thursday in a new concrete bowl 25km outside of Pune a motley collection of young English cricketers, under the leadership of Eoin Morgan, take on a much more experienced India team still smarting from their Test-series defeat. This may have passed you by.
Eoin Morgan, employing the kind of precision timing with which he used to manage England run-chases, gave the selectors a reminder of his talents on the day that Kevin Pietersen called time on his limited-overs international career.
England omitted Eoin Morgan from their tour of Sri Lanka with the usual encouraging messages that they see this as an interruption, rather than a termination, of his Test career.
