I'm sure they'll be released to play more matches once they announce the first England squads of the summer. I guess it's just a formality to announce the availability of all players before then even if they're not in contention for ODI places.

Thanks sharky. I thought Strauss must have made this list as Finn gets to play all the games I read somewhere that Wood would only play white ball games, now it's everything.

No, I don't think that's what it means. This is how the players are being managed up to early May. Then presumably their workload/rest will be re-assessed for the weeks after.

Having some of this.

But they are deciding now on

Keaton Jennings, Mark Wood, Alastair Cook, Liam Dawson, James Vince Haseeb Hameed Steven Finn Ben Duckett, Alex Hales, Gary Ballance, Liam Plunkett, David Willey – available for all matches.

Does that mean until the 1st Test or until the CT starts?

Why rest Ball from the RLODC if he is in the CT squad? Why not let Broad and Anderson play more than the first 2 of those one day games?

In the past the coach would sit down with a player and they would decide on which games the player wants to play. Somehow I think Strauss has decided on his own. Broad said he was looking forward to playing all the games until the 1st Test, especially getting more white ball cricket.

Surely that's just code for "Please, Notts fans, don't send me letter-bombs"?

Yes.
Wood and Willey will be coming back from injury. Plunkett is now injured.

At least Broad gets to play in the uni game. I am sure he will talk his way into more games. He has Newell at Notts on his side.

SB JA and JB will miss the f/c d/n games with the pink ball.

ECB

Jake Ball, Steven Finn, Keaton Jennings, Adil Rashid and Mark Wood are all set to join the action in the Specsavers County Championship this Easter weekend – but the England management have declined a request from Nottinghamshire for Stuart Broad to play in their Division Two fixture at Durham.

Broad, and his England new-ball partner James Anderson, have both been made available to their counties for the first and third games of the season – but not the second.

So Anderson will sit out Lancashire’s Division One game against Surrey at the Kia Oval but is available for their first home game of the season against Somerset starting at Emirates Old Trafford on April 21, and Broad will be available for Nottinghamshire’s home game against Sussex starting on the same day.

“We have to recognise the demands of the International programme over the next 12 months, with seven Tests in 10 weeks from July followed by another seven in Australia and New Zealand over the winter,” said Andrew Strauss, the ECB’s director, England cricket.

“We have to manage all our players and especially our bowlers accordingly. Both Stuart and Jimmy are committed to their counties and keen to play as much possible. But equally they recognise both the challenges and demands to come over the summer.

A plan for availability for the early-season fixtures has been put together in consultation with the players and counties were made aware of the likely schedule back in January.

“Stuart bowled 21 overs for Nottinghamshire at Leicestershire, and Jimmy bowled 42 for Lancashire at Essex, so it makes sense for us to stick to the original plan of them taking a week’s break before returning for the third round of Championship fixtures. They will also be available for further Championship matches as well as the early stages of the Royal London One-Day Cup.”

It’s a case of one in, one out for Nottinghamshire’s pace bowling options against Durham at the Emirates Riverside, as Ball will be available after England asked him to delay the start of his domestic campaign.

Alex Hales is also available to Nottinghamshire in all early-season fixtures in both the Championship and the One-Day Cup, and the same goes for Jennings and Wood as Durham make a delayed start to their Division Two campaign after missing the first round of fixtures.

Finn has been made available for all Middlesex’s matches, starting on Friday when they launch their defence of the Specsavers County Championship against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl.

Alastair Cook has also been made available for Essex’s matches, although his availability for their trip to Somerset will depend on his recovery from the hip problem that ruled him out of their first match back in Division One against Lancashire.

Rashid is available to make his first appearance of the season for Yorkshire in their Division One match against Warwickshire at Edgbaston. David Willey and Liam Plunkett were made available from the start of the season although both were ruled out of Yorkshire’s opening match against Hampshire because of injury, and Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow will be available for the return match against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl starting on Friday week – as well as the Vikings’ opening three matches in the RLODC, against Notts Outlaws, Lancashire Lightning and Durham.

Moeen Ali is not available for Worcestershire’s opening Championship game in Division Two at Glamorgan, but is set to make his first appearance of the season at home to Northamptonshire next week – and is also available for the Rapids’ first three games in the RLODC

How is he comparing Broad bowling 21 overs with Anderson's 42? Just proves that Broad could easily bowl more doesn't it?

'Nevertheless, several counties are seething about the double standards which allows players who compete for England in all three formats, such as Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes, to play in IPL while others such as Broad or Jonny Bairstow - who has played only three England ODIs this year - are severely restricted in how often they can represent their counties'.

Jimmy Anderson bowled 42 overs. It would take someone at least 11 IPL matches to bowl that many.

Yes, and the IPL is far higher pressure and therefore will take it's toll on the players mentally far more than the County Championship will do physically as long as counties manage the workloads.

Well, and Bairstow was allowed to play in the IPL.

Interesting that Finn is available for all Middlesex matches. Surely he should at least be treated in the same way as Jake Ball, Broad and Anderson?

You would think so.

I wonder if Newell made the request instead of Moores it would have been different.

Maybe they rank getting him in form more important than avoiding injury, considered important enough they might want to call on him but not so important they'd be worried if he got injured.

But I can see the point re comparing with Ball as surely they'd treat Ball and Finn much the same. That said looking to see who is contracted I don't see Ball even on an incremental contract

http://www.thepca.co.uk/6035.html

Maybe they just want Ball bowling, and you could argue there's no point wrapping a bowler returning from injury up completely in cotton wool as he needs to prove his fitness, durability and find form.

I also think Finn is behind Wood and Ball for a spot in the test side now, as well as the four incumbents. Would think they're less concerned with protecting his fitness and more just want him to try and get back to something resembling decent form.
