Eoin Morgan: England have learned lessons before Champions Trophy

The Yorkshireman once again took advantage of a rare opportunity with his third half-century in four one-day global innings to help England's partial recovery from their collapse to 20 for six in the first five overs of the third and final Royal London Series match.

England made three changes to their squad for the third and final One-Day International (ODI) against South Africa, to be played at Lord's on Monday (May 29)., Toby-Ronald Jones and Liam Dawson have been drafted into the 15-man squad while Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes have been rested ahead of England's Champions Trophy assignments.

England still won the three-match series 2-1.

"Unfortunately it didn't go our way, we didn't get the lucky bounce - if you want to call it that, a little edge over the keeper".

"The umpires felt the condition of the ball changed", de Villiers said, "in a way, making me feel that we are responsible".

Jonny Bairstow's fine fifty helped England recover to 153 all out.

East River Tunnel Power Loss Causing Major LIRR Delays
Similarly, a 6:12 a.m. train from Babylon that was due in at 7:14 a.m. was also stuck in a tunnel under the river, officials said. No injuries have been reported on the disabled trains, and conductors have been distributing water to frustrated commuters.

"We've played some pretty good cricket in this series, but I think this performance ensures we go into the Champions Trophy without big heads", he told Sky Sports 2. "I expressed my views about that and we move on".

The Australian added: "It´ll be an interesting selection meeting".

The venue is the Surrey home ground of England opener Jason Roy, now struggling for runs.

Even better, their starting XI for the Champs Trophy opener against Sri Lanka at The Oval on Saturday (11:30 SA time) looks to have nearly inadvertently sorted itself out. The top-order struggled against Rabada and Parnell and the hosts were struggling at 20/6 before Jonny Bairstow started the fight.

Morgan was "very impressed" with Bairstow, and added: "He never lets us down - every time he comes in, he scores runs, and he continues to bang on the door".

"I´d be disappointed if we did, because any team (would have) the potential to win or lose a game on a toss in a major tournament - which is hard to take".

American Legion hosts Memorial Day Program in honor of fallen veterans
This year's theme for Charlottesville's Memorial Day ceremony highlights the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day. In Arlington National Cemetery, President Trump laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and honored gold star moms.

Reflecting on his conversation with the officials, deVilliers said: "I expressed I was quite upset about it".

"We´re very confident", he said. We probably didn't read the conditions as well as we could have done but credit to them on a wicket which had a little bit in.

"He and [Alex] Hales have been our one and two for quite a long time and they have had their ups and downs but ultimately they have played in the fashion we have played as a team".

De Villiers became embroiled in a row with the standing umpires, Rob Bailey and Chris Gaffaney, after they queried the condition of the ball before the start of the 34th over in England's innings bowled by Keshav Maharaj.

Rabada, meanwhile, was optimistic about the Proteas´ Champions Trophy chances.
