This is a thread for all of the relatively inconsequential knockabouts that happen between two sides. Test-containing tours and tourneys get their own threads.
The current tri-series is most notable, thus far, for WI beating a SA team in apparent chaos, and for the return to form of Mitchell Starc. An Australian left-arm bowler with genuine pace delivering a heady mixture of hit-me balls, extras, and unplayable deliveries? Plus ça change...
Been a fun tri-series for the England Lions so far.
163* for Duckett in the first match against Pakistan A
185* for Malan in their next match against Sri Lanka A
175 for Billings in their next match against Pakistan A
They're currently playing their second match against Sri Lanka A and now Bell-Drummond is performing pretty nicely. Nice to see different players piling on the runs. I haven't listed the bowlers but they've performed well too.
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
