Westley is good to go to opening in at No.3 as Gary Ballance’s substitution after the Yorkshire batsman was discounted with damage.

The Essex batsman is currently confident of heaping on the keeps running nearby his area partner and previous England commander Alastair Cook, whom he alludes to as a good example.
“Cooky called me today, just to state congrats, the standard stuff between partners – in the event that he could help in any capacity, he’d be on the finish of a telephone,” Westley said.
“He was in the auto with his girl Elsie really, so she said congrats to me also. I’ve gained such a great amount from Cooky throughout the years. One of the enormous things is his disposition as a batsman as well as a man.
“He’s an unfathomable good example, and in the wake of seeing him shut everything down Essex for so long I’m anticipating seeing him with England. We’ve had many great organizations with Essex, so ideally we can do likewise for England,” he included.
