Jonny Bairstow hopeful limited-overs form will help him regain Test spot

:Headline: Jonny Bairstow hopeful limited-overs form will help him regain Test spot:
The 30-year-old has vowed to work on his batting technique after being left out of the Test squad to tour New Zealand.
PA | 28d

Jonny Bairstow is embracing the challenge of breaking back into England's Test team and is looking at the man who has replaced him as the side's number one wicketkeeper for inspiration.

Bairstow was central to England lifting the World Cup this summer but his form tailed off in the Ashes, where he averaged just 23.77 across the drawn series as his diminishing returns with the bat in Test whites continued.

While the Yorkshireman is set to feature in the five-match Twenty20 series against New Zealand that starts Chris Silverwood's reign as England head coach, he is a notable absentee from the squad for the Test series that follows.

Key for the 30-year-old will be working on his batting technique – which has been scrutinised because of his propensity to be bowled by balls coming back into him – away from the microscope of international cricket.

Bairstow added: "I've got an opportunity to go away and just work on a few things which, with the scheduling and playing all three formats over the last four or five years, has been pretty tough to do.

"I think the last time I did that was probably 2015 when I got the chance to go away and work on a few things. To refresh and refocus I think is an important thing to be able to do.

"I'm excited about being able to have a little period of time to be able to go away and work on my own things and not necessarily think about it being watched on telly or have it being stripped down to say he's doing this or that.

"Because as we all know it's quite easy to stop recordings in certain frames in order to say it's X, Y or Z. I know what I need to do and I'm excited about what I need to work on."
