    Because of his batting and experience, I'm happy for him to be a T20 probable.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Root's just not a T20 player, is he? Never even made 50.

    Continuing our ignoble tradition of picking players for formats they're pretty much completely unsuited to.

    Would've said Moore or (as we have no issues swiping Irishmen) Stirling might've been better shouts.

    Agree. Lockers Laughlin won't make Australia's cut. ****bach will make Englands though.

    If you don't need three keepers, it is implied heavily that you don't need four, five or six.

    Hales +
    Kieswetter +
    Prior +
    Davies +
    Morgan +
    Buttler +
    Bairstow +

    Of course tres kept in a half dozen matches for England, so call him up to, our best t20 opener probably.
