Phil Salt

The Rat

Striker
Salt averages 23.53 in T20
Hain averages 32.44
Averages not that important mate, not considered as much as strike rates by the modern coaches and analysts

Although their career strike rate is similar apparently Salt's has shot up last year or so, hence he has been picked in a few overseas tournament

Hain an ODI player, but similar to Ballance in style, no reason either couldn't play their records are amazing.

Might be a spot at 4 in the squad in next few years if Morgan goes, or with Root's back etc

Remember Hain being close to the test team few years back but had a shocker year

Joe Clark must be kicking himself for getting his name involved in that disgraceful behaviour at Worcester.
Surely would have been a shoe in as a replacement.
Think he is closer to the test side

Only himself to blame, he will play for England at some point but this is a lesson he needs teaching IMO, can't be going around like that

When do Jack Taylor and Lewis Gregory get picked?

Or, the best player in last year's Blast who is in great form for Sussex (Evans)?

Salt isn't in any sort of form. @hudson88 nailed it.

No he didn’t

Why is Salt getting picked for t20 league in Pakistan

You think that’s because he’s welsh??

Dobell had him tipped for a while

You’re just naming random players mate

So much conspiracy about selection on this board

Not saying Salt should be in there but the other batsmen you've named bat 5/6/7 whereas Salt is an opener called up to replace Hales
