"It is good that both Trevor and (England's director of cricket Andrew) Strauss are backing us", Woakes said.

Writing in a column for the International Cricket Council (ICC), Bond said the hectic travel schedule for the Indian Premier League (IPL) leaves little time for regular net sessions.

"It will mean a lot to me to win this kind of tournament because this is a great opportunity for us as a team and for me as an individual to go there and win the trophy".

On Tuesday morning, seven members of the Pakistan squad for the Champions Trophy left for England ahead of the eight-nation tournament. I always felt in good form and am really excited to move forward.

He added that the victory on the West Indies tour was morale boosting and all players were in high spirit to perform better in England, for which a training camp has been set up there.

Ravi and Tucker will be the on-field umpires for the opening match between England and Bangladesh at The Oval on 1 June, with Oxenford in the third umpire's room along with Boon as match referee, while Gaffaney will be the fourth umpire.

Busy day for French president: Names PM, meets with Merkel
Like Macron, Edouard Philippe is a pro-European moderate who wants French politics to go beyond the left-right divide. The two have met before, in March, during the French presidential campaign.

And, going into the Champions Trophy next month, Woakes is sure that the lessons he's learned in the heat of the IPL battle will stand him in good stead as England pursue their maiden 50-over global title.

Stoinis played five matches in the IPL, scoring only 17 runs in three innings and taking two wickets before being ruled out.

"T20 cricket is a good experience to have behind you going into an ODI tournament because you still have to bowl death overs in ODI cricket", he said.

"I feel fine going back to England and hopefully playing a key part for England this summer", said Woakes, as reported by ESPNCricinfo. "It is important that it is not just your skills that are up to speed, you need to have had miles in the legs as well", he explained.

"It is a good balanced cricket destination where you have to cover all the bases to be able to play a good brand of cricket in a tournament like this with differentopposition". "And it is nearly just an extended version of T20".

"If you can do it in the IPL under pressure, you can transfer that over".
