Ed Joyce in squad as new Ireland coach arrives for ODI
Following Jonathan Trott's retirement from international cricket, the man most likely to replace him in England's batting line-up is Yorkshire's Adam Lyth who was top Division One scorer in County Championship 2014 with 1,489 runs.
Lyth was on the bench for England's disappointing drawn three-match series in the West Indies. The player who presented the toughest challenge to Lyth's total last season was Ed Joyce (Sussex) with 1,398 runs.
Joyce is a member of the Ireland squad who play England in a one day international in Malahide on Friday.
The side's coaching team will be lead by formidable assistant coach and performance analyst Peter Johnston with newly appointed Head Coach John Bracewell as observer. Bracewell, an experienced former Test player, has also coached New Zealand.
