Stokes and Buttler have both been picked up by Rajasthan Royals. Woakes and Mo have been signed by ECB.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Good of the ECB to enter an IPL team this year ;)

Honestly incredible. You have to laugh. Good to see that Pakistan has managed to shake that match-fixing culture.

Warm-up T20 live stream :)

Top lad. Very tidy c&b from Dawson there. I'm not opposed to him being in the team over Moeen tbh.

LOVE how the commentary team are taking shots at the test team because they know they're likely to get battered in these T20s.

They're also streaming the audio on the beeb. Unfortunately it's not the TMS boys but still passes the time.

Hales and Roy are not going to cope with Stanlake's pace.

It's so interesting that Australia's T20 team is such a more daunting prospect than their ODI team. Before the ODI series I was confident that the worst result we'd come out with was a 3-2 win. If we were to play a 5 game T20 series against them, I'd be a lot less certain of winning the series.

Players like Tye, Maxi, Lynn, and Carey are very, very good T20 players. Short absolutely destroyed the BBL this year, got out twice in the 90s and made one century. Then you have Stoinis who for me is like a modern day Bevan and will be a limited overs great. Warner is the best limited overs opener in the world (although going through a rough patch). You imagine Starc comes into the bowling attack as well so it's a very strong team.

Thankfully this is a slower pitch than the SCG!
