    No way they can justify Buttler over Davies. Poor FC record. Bairstow as the backup WK makes most sense to me.

    I'm pretty sure Panesar will be left at home but I could be wrong.

    Meh, they've picked Eoin Morgan for England before, safe to say they don't care that much about FC records.

    I dunno myself, I think the fact that the A-Team tour is in Oz at the same time, means the main squad will be more a negotiation. I expect all the experienced guys to get the nod, but really wouldn't be surprised if there is an injury that they'll bring in some-one performing very well for the Lions.
    Do I contradict myself?

    On this - wasn't there an extra player in India because KP was left out and then brought back after they named the squad?

    Well all the Flintoff antics were allowed so why treat Monty differently especially if this is a one off?

    Leaving Panesar at home would be ridiculous.

    Allowed? he lost the captaincy over it didn't he?

    Personally, I'm with Furball, I couldn't give a monkey's but England have always been pretty prissy over this stuff.

    Fat Gatt lost the captaincy over the barmaid thing FFS.

    He lost the captaincy as he was a crap captain and was only a temporary replacement anyway.

    Captaincy I think is different, but provided it's a one off incident then it would be a massive over-reaction to drop Panesar from the squad for this.

    edit: the pedalo incident was during the World Cup when Vaughan had returned as captain anyway. IIRC Flintoff was banned for a game and stripped of the vice-captaincy.

    To be fair he harassed a group of women then pissed on a bouncer. Way worse than anything Fred did.

    Yeah but how many times was Fred reprimanded for his drinking etc... and still did it?

    Dropping Monty would be cutting off our nose to spite our face.

    Different people in charge now though. Not sure him missing a tour of Oz is particularly cutting off our nose, TBH. It hasn't happened yet though. I think he'll go, and they'll get Kerrigan to play a lot of games for the other teams in preparation for later tours. Don't see a lot of point in him carrying drinks for a few months.

    Agree, the picking of the squad is much less definite than it used to be. I think the only really significant thing we will learn when it is announced is if Compton and/or Carberry are included.

    The Gatting bar maid bit was a made up story which the authorities made stick by calling on friends in the Press - they wanted Gatting out after the Rana incident.

    They'll take Monty. Kerrigan doesn't turn it enough atm. He's better than Doherty but so many are.

    I wouldn't touch Compton with a ten foot bargepole.

    Wouldn't object to a Carberry pick (been a better player than Compton for a long time) but don't think they'll go that route. The Selectors will have a 'next opening batsman' in mind.

    Get Robson in The Lions to tie him up.

    Would go with that so long as it's made clear that he's not being picked as a specialist bat and only gets a game without the gloves if there's a huge run of injuries.
