No Ballance: Yorkshire Captain Andrew Gale is surprised that Gary Ballance was not picked for England's ODI tours to India and Sri Lanka Credit: Press Association

Ballance has been in fine form throughout the summer, helping England to a Test series win over India and Yorkshire to the County Championship title.

Speaking in his Yorkshire Post column, Gale, who is expected to be cleared of allegations of racism against Lancashire's Ashwell Prince, said: "I think England are missing a trick there because he is one of the best one-day and Twenty20 players in the country, but for whatever reason, England don’t seem to see that and see him more as a Test player.

"But I definitely believe in all three formats that Gary is one of the best players in the country.

"It has surprised me a little bit as I thought Gary would have been on that trip.

"He obviously hasn’t played much one-day cricket for England this summer, but if you give him an opportunity, Gary will take it.

"For me, it would have been nice to see him on that tour."
