England call up Liam Livingstone for two-Test tour to New Zealand

Wood's first target is the five-match one-day series that starts in the early hours of Sunday, followed by the tour of New Zealand. Test Match cricket is the pinnacle and something that every player works towards throughout their career.

England have endured a disastrous tour of Australia as they lost the Ashes 4-0 and have been plagued by off-field issues.

Livingstone's displays for Lancashire over the past two seasons, as well as his efforts for the Lions when touring Sri Lanka and against South Africa A at home, caught the eye of the selectors.

Two years ago Liam Livingstone's greatest claim to distinction in the cricket world was that he had scored 350 for Nantwich in a national club knockout cup match against Caldy. Stoneman has had less opportunities but he too needs a big score in New Zealand to cement his place as Alastair Cook's opening partner. Generally speaking in Sydney Premier Cricket, grade cricket, I've come through at the same speed as some of the players and I'm not new to them.

"During the recent Lions tour of Australia, he was a standout performer and showed a lot of maturity in his attitude and put in some strong performances". "He is a very talented and tough cricketer who has the ideal qualities and character to be successful in the Test arena", he added.

Stoinis' global career began in the aftermath of the last Ashes series - England's 3-2 win on home soil in 2015 - but made just two low-key appearances, his ODI and T20 debuts, before disappearing from the stage for more than 18 months.

Moeen Ali impressed with the ball but again struggled with the bat, making just one before he was dismissed by seamer Gabe Bell.

From the Ashes touring squad, batsman Gary Ballance and bowlers Jake Ball and Tom Curran have been dropped.

Selectors have also recalled the Durham seamer Wood, who returns to the Test squad for the first time since previous year.

There were runs for Alex Hales (52 from 35 balls), Jason Roy (40 from 48 balls), Eoin Morgan (81 from 76 balls) and Jos Buttler (28 from 26 balls) in a comfortable chase, completed with 55 balls to spare, after three wickets for Adil Rashid and two for Liam Plunkett in the CA XI's 258 for nine.
