Ben Foakes’ average this season pointed about 56 times
Fair play to the selectors. Right call.

Needs to go away like he did last time and try and average 100 again in the championship.

Surprised at how many new additions to the squad. Real statement of intent playing for the future.

Really like the look of both of those squads. Promoting loads of youth and making each squad more specialist.

Billings is the real winner in the Buttler/Bairstow summer. Had buttler been as shite as Jonny. Woakes would have been in the test side with the others in the T20.

Crawley averaging 34.....random.
Definitely a look to the future as he's only 21. Sibley and him best performing openers in county cricket. So may as well have a look at him.

Top 3 is completely up in the air so burns Denly Sibley and Crawley playing for those places for the next 3 series.

Not many number 3s smacking the door down. Hain and Northeast been batting at 4.

I read he wanted a break which is fair enough

Surprised Jordan has been picked in the squad and would have liked so see Hales back in
They said when Hales lost his contract the loss of trust between Morgan and Hales was a big factor.

Goes away and proves he's a professional while scoring runs then he'll be back. Only himself to blame even though loss to England. Roy and Bairstow are a better opening partnership anyway.

Hales and Roy usually saw one of them make a score while the other failed. A competition rather than a partnership

Jordan there cos stokes Woakes archer involved with the test side I imagine. Bit of experience alongside the younger attack.

Buttler with the gloves as I’m saying for a while
