England vs South Africa, 3rd ODI

England vs South Africa, 3rd ODI

England has revealed all-rounders Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes will all be rested for Monday's final one-day global with South Africa, as the trio contend with injury issues ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy.

For all the 25-year-old's power strokeplay-as exemplified in his blistering 79-ball 101 featuring 11 fours and three sixes during England's two-run win in the second one-day worldwide against South Africa at Southampton on Saturday-Stokes's batting is based on a sound straight drive.

Joining Stokes is Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali who will also be rested with England calling up Steven Finn, Toby Roland-Jones and Liam Dawson as replacements.

Alonso was a factor in Sunday's 500 until, of course, his Honda engine expired on the front straightaway on Lap 180. Alonso was running seventh when he suffered an apparent engine failure on the frontstretch.

There may be an unexpected opportunity therefore for either Finn or the uncapped Roland-Jones on their home ground, or for slow left-armer Dawson to add to his solitary ODI appearance to date - on the back of his eight-wicket match haul in the Specsavers Division One victory sealed by Hampshire over Somerset at Taunton on Sunday. "Batting, running around the field, everything like that is fine".

Having seen his team lose out off the final ball by two runs, de Villiers praised England's bowlers for closing out victory and the series.

"We are managing it as well as we can with the physios, doctors and myself".

Judging by the string of films she starred in at Cannes , it comes as little surprise (does this woman ever sleep?!). The jury also presented a special prize to celebrate the festival's 70th anniversary, to actress Nicole Kidman .

While Stokes is expected to be fit for the Champions Trophy, which begins on Thursday, there will be a lingering issue of whether his workload will need to be managed throughout the tournament.

"It's an injury I've had before and sometimes will just go away - there are good days and bad days, I could wake up tomorrow and it be completely gone". It's a very odd injury, he aggravates it when he bowls, in his delivery stride. I don't know what else I can say, I was pretty upset. "It's unfortunate that we didn't cross the line but I'm proud of the way we fought right until the end".

"We're trying to build it up again with the Champions Trophy in mind".
