That dramatic final day of the Ashes at the Oval only feels like yesterday - but already it's time to shift our focus to white-ball mode as England ramp up their preparations for the upcoming ICC Men's World Cup in India, with two home series against New Zealand.


A 15-strong provisional squad for the ODI tournament, which runs between October and November, was named earlier this month - but with 11 limited-overs matches still to play before their opener at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Gujarat, plenty could change as the likes of Harry Brook look to force their way into Jos Buttler and Matthew Mott's plans.

England will face the Kiwis eight times over the next month – with a four-match T20 series swiftly followed by a four-match ODI series – before hosting Ireland for three ODIs in late September and then heading to the World Cup.

The Black Caps may not be the limited-overs force that they once were, and are not among the favourites to get their hands on any silverware later this year, but Kane Williamson's side is still packed with talent.

Buttler and co will want to use the next eight games to offer players opportunities to impress, hone their tactics and play themselves into a bit of form against quality opposition, which should make for fantastic entertainment.
