Test top three still not settled - Bayliss
Head coach Trevor Bayliss admits England are still waiting for any batsman to nail down a position in the top three of the Test side.
Bayliss, who will leave his position as coach after the upcoming Ashes series, does not foresee any problem with players returning from their post-World Cup rest getting up for the first Test at Edgbaston on August 1.
He told Sky Sports: "I don't think we'll have any problems getting ourselves up for the Ashes. We'll have a few guys come back into the team who have had a rest, so I'm looking forward to it."
England will name their squad for the Ashes opener this weekend with Bayliss still waiting for some of the batsmen that have been tried over the past few Tests to really grab their chance.
He added: "It's no secret that we've been looking for numbers one, two and three for a little while.
"These guys have their chance.
"Burns and Denly have done OK for us over the winter without setting the world on fire. Jason Roy showed glimpses of what he can do."
