England pair Walker and Phillips out until the World Cup, while Murray misses the start of the British winter to play for the US in the winter Olympic Games in Sochi.

England coach Trevor Bayliss says: “We do not want to play short-ball cricket and that is how we did it last year, we got the best out of the team.

“The players would have enjoyed playing a longer game as there have been a lot of opportunities missed.

“I would not want to go back to that position and I doubt he would want to do that so we will look at it carefully.”
