    they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue.

    begin another summer of Test cricket at Headingley next week and the squad for
    the first Test against Sri Lanka has been announced with Jake Ball the standout
    inclusion. The Nottinghamshire paceman becomes Englands fourth seam option,
    joining James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Steven Finn in the 12-man squad. But
    who is he and how did he force his way in Trevor Bayliss thoughts? Heres what
    you need to know…Age: 25Born: Mansfield, NottinghamshireTwitter:
    @JakeBall30Loves: Golf & Everton Why is he in the squad? Ball impressed in
    Notts draw with Yorkshire in early May Ball has been in fantastic form for
    Nottinghamshire in the early part of the season, taking 23 wickets at 19.04 in
    five first-class games this season. Most notable perhaps was his performance
    against Yorkshire at Trent Bridge, live on Sky Sports. The 25-year-old bowled
    with real pace and took seven wickets in the match, including the prize scalps
    of Joe Root, Gary Ballance, Adam Lyth and Jonny Bairstow.Is he just a flash in
    the pan?In a word: no. Ball is still in the early stages of his career and after
    a broken foot disrupted his 2014 it was only last year that he really got a run
    in the Notts four-day side, having impressed in white-ball cricket since his
    debut in 2009. He certainly took his chance, taking 39 County Championship
    wickets with a first class average of 29.51 for the season. Since then he looks
    to have added a yard or two of pace to his bowling over the winter and it is
    undoubtedly paying off, he is already well on his way to improving on his wicket
    haul from 2015.What do they say about him? England batsman Joe Root is sure Jake
    Ball can mmake an impact in Test cricket.dddddddddddd Nottinghamshire team-mate
    Stuart Broad: Jake has developed so quickly in the last 18 months. Hes tall, hes
    got good pace and hes a guy that takes big wickets - he gets top-order batsmen
    out. He was the best bowler on show [against Yorkshire] and its a good sign when
    players perform well on TV against good players.Yorkshire coach Jason Gillespie:
    He bowled well against us in Abu Dhabi in pre-season and then again in our
    recent Championship match. He can move the ball off the surface and swing it
    through the air, while he bowls a good length and invites the batsmen to come
    forward. If he gets an opportunity, I think he will do well.Sky Sports Nasser
    Hussain: He has been very impressive. On a pretty decent Trent Bridge pitch, he
    bowled really well and got Root out twice. He looked sharp, fit and in-form and
    when you speak to guys around County Championship Division One, they say he has
    been doing well for some time.What does he say?Jake Ball, to Nottinghamshires
    official website: I havent met (coach) Trevor Bayliss yet, so Im looking forward
    to seeing what hes about - and obviously meeting up with a few of the players I
    havent played against or met. Its going to be a really exciting time, I really
    cant wait to get going.First class bowling recordMatches: 26Wickets: 84Average:
    25.13Best innings figures: 6-49Best match figures: 9-67 Ball took 39 County
    Championship wickets in 2015 Is he new to the England set up?Again, no. While
    this may be Balls first call-up to the Test side, he is no stranger to
    representing England. The seamer was an Under-19 international, playing a
    starring role in two U19 Tests in 2010 against Sri Lanka, and was rewarded for
    his fine county form in 2015 with a call to the England Development Programme
    fast bowling camp and a place in the England Lions squad for their tour of
    Pakistan. There he impressed once more both with the red and the white ball.Any
    other business?Ball does have another England connection in the form of his
    uncle, and former Nottinghamshire and England wicketkeeper, Bruce French, who
    also had a spell as Englands wicketkeeping coach where he worked closely with
    Matt Prior, in particular. You can see whether Ball makes his Test debut as
    England take on Sri Lanka from 10am next Thursday, May 19, live on Sky Sports 2
