Jonny Bairstow vows to return to England Test side stronger after shock dropping from New Zealand series

Jonny Bairstow believes being dropped for the New Zealand Test series will give him time to work on his batting and put him in a strong position to win back his place for the South Africa series.

Bairstow was shocked to be left out of the England Test squad for the two matches in New Zealand at the end of November and held talks with selectors Ed Smith and James Taylor last week.

He was assured his Test career is not over and the England management believe he can come back stronger. Bairstow was picked for the Twenty20 series in New Zealand and hopes to use that to prove a point as he attempts to get a place on the tour to South Africa in December.

The worry for Bairstow is that Ollie Pope and Zak Crawley could establish themselves in his absence and Ben Foakes is breathing down his neck as a wicketkeeping alternative to Jos Buttler, who has been given the gloves for the New Zealand series.

“I’m absolutely determined to regain my Test spot,” he said.
