Sir Ian Botham says James Vince must play for England in Thursdays first Investec Test against Sri Lanka. NBA Jerseys Wholesale . The Hampshire captain is in line to make his long-awaited Test debut at Headingley having staked his claim with some excellent performances in Englands Lions and one-day squads.Vince bats at No 3 for his county, a position currently held in the England side by Middlesexs Nick Compton, but could come straight in at No 5 following James Taylors early retirement. The 25-year-old caught the eye with a brilliant century against Yorkshire at Leeds two weeks ago and Botham believes he could get his chance in his preferred position of first wicket down.Vince must play, and could bat at three but it depends on how they (the selectors) want to go and if they stick with Compton, said Botham. Hes been knocking on the door for a while, hes been in great form and deserves his chance. James Vince could make his debut when England play Sri Lanka in the 1st Test at Headingley. Id bat him at three, Joe Root at four and Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes at five and six, but they may place trust in their bowlers and decide to go for an extra batsman, well just have to see.The England legend does not expect a repeat of Sri Lankas series win against England two years ago and is tipping Alastair Cooks side to complete a 3-0 series whitewash.Botham added: England should win the series comfortably. They played well in the winter and should be far too strong for this inexperienced Sri Lanka side. We take a look back at the England v Sri Lanka Test series for 2014, where there was heartbreak for James Anderson. The weather could have a say, I know rain is forecast for Headingley, but I still think they will win 3-0.Captain Cook heads into the match 36 runs shy of becoming the first Englishman to score 10,000 Test runs and Botham is confident the in-form opener will achieve the landmark early in the series.Hell get there and can go on and get another 3,000 Test runs, it just depends how long he wants to keep going, added Botham, who has picked Cook at 9/4 to be Englands leading run scorer in the series, one of his Beefys Bets.

Scott won the Australian PGA last week in his first event in Australia since winning the U.S. Masters in April. American Matt Kuchar, ahead by two strokes with four to play and even with Scott with one to go, double-bogeyed the 18th after taking two shots to get out of a bunker. DETROIT -- The lineup Justin Verlander was facing barely resembled the Cleveland team that clinched the AL Central title the night before.The ace right-hander took full advantage.Verlander struck out a season-high 12, and the Detroit Tigers routed the Indians 12-0 on Tuesday night to pull within a game of the American Leagues second wild card. Miguel Cabrera homered and drove in five runs in the first two innings.The Indians clinched the division on Monday night in Detroit, and their lineup Tuesday was without Jason Kipnis, Francisco Lindor, Mike Napoli and Jose Ramirez.Its actually kind of tough that way -- a bunch of guys in there I dont know at all, Verlander said. Just trying to figure it out on the fly when Im out there and kind of read swings and stuff.Verlander (16-8) went 7 2/3 innings, allowing four hits and a walk. The Tigers are now a game behind Baltimore for a wild card.Mike Clevinger (2-3) lasted only two innings, allowing Cabreras two-run double in the first and his three-run homer in the second.I wasnt mentally ready for this game, and thats embarrassing, Clevinger said. Ive made so much progress in about my last ten outings, and then I gave a lot of it back tonight. Some of that is baseball, but I felt like I could have controlled some of it.Justin Upton added a three-run homer in the seventh, and Andrew Romine hit a two-run shot in the eighth.Cleveland is 14-3 against Detroit this season, but the Tigers did exactly what could be expected against this unique version of the Indians. Cabreras double made it 2-0 before the Tigers made a single out, and it was 5-0 after his drive over the wall in center an inning later.Cabrera now has 35 home runs and 102 RBI on the season.Ian Kinsler hit an RBI single in the fourth, and Uptons 29th homer made it 9-0.The Tigers began clearing their own bench late in the game. They used five pinch hitters in the eighth, and Romine -- the only batter in that frame who wasnt a pinch hitter -- had come on earlier as a defensive replacement. Wholesale NBA Store. His drive to right put the Tigers up 12-0.Detroit hit for the cycle that inning with consecutive batters on a double by Nick Castellanos, a triple by Tyler Collins, Romines homer and a single by Steven Moya. Kansas City accomplished the same feat against the Tigers to start the game Sunday.PLAYING IT SAFEVerlander looked eager to keep pitching in the eighth, but manager Brad Ausmus took him out after 110 pitches. Verlanders next scheduled start is Sunday in the regular-season finale at Atlanta.We have a potential game in five days that could mean a lot, and hes going to be the guy pitching, Ausmus said. So Im certainly not going to run his pitch count up today in a game when we have a commanding lead.TRAINERS ROOMTigers: Castellanos (left hand) was activated from the DL before the game, and he flew back to Michigan in time to enter in the eighth. He had been at the instructional league. He played this morning in an intrasquad game, had a number of at-bats, got a couple hits, Ausmus said. Followed that up by flying to Detroit and getting a double down the third-base line, so he looked good.UP NEXTIndians: Cleveland might have its regulars back in the lineup Wednesday night against the Tigers, but it could be another adventure on the mound. Zach McAllister (3-2) makes only his second start of the season. He has pitched 51 times in relief.Tigers: Rookie Michael Fulmer (11-7) makes his final scheduled start of the season. He needs 6 1/3 innings to qualify for the ERA title.---Follow Noah Trister at www.Twitter.com/noahtrister ' ' '
