Bairstow wants long run in England´s ODI side

13 September 2017 20:16

Jonny Bairstow wants a lengthy run in England's one-day international side to establish himself as a key member of the set-up.

A loss of form for Jason Roy saw Bairstow take his place as an opening batsman during the ICC Champions Trophy, contributing a fifty against South Africa and 43 in the semi-final defeat to Pakistan.

However, Roy has racked up three half centuries in his last four Twenty20 appearances for Surrey, threatening the Yorkshire star's place in the England line-up for the limited-overs matches against West Indies.

Having provided a number of solid performances when called upon in the last three years, Bairstow, who will hand over wicketkeeping duties to Jos Buttler, hopes his consistency is rewarded with a run in the side.

"I have said now over a period of time I don't mind where I play or bat as long as I am in that XI," Bairstow told The Telegraph.

"I finished the Champions Trophy opening the batting. When I have been asked to do so I like to think I have done alright over the last year or so when I have opened or come in at three. 

"Wherever it is that there is an opportunity in the side, hopefully I will get the nod.

"I like to hope that having finished the Champions Trophy that I will definitely get a run within the side. I have been in and out for one game here and there and at some point it would be nice to get a decent run, not necessarily one series.

"It would be nice to get a couple of series under your belt so you are able to get your teeth stuck firmly into a role."

England face the Windies in a T20 at Durham on Saturday before a five-match ODI series.
