Wasn't Alam playing for Aus A before he became eligible for Australia, thus suggesting that A / Lions games are completely meaningless in terms of international availability.
Has Robson done enough to tour? Even if he has its still a big call to take him given that he would be under fire if he played a test.
I'd say Robson has no chance of making the full squad. He's basically had one good season and he hasn't been selected for the lions(not even in the experimental side to play aus later this week) yet. He isn't get selected.
I'd take Carberry on tour, just in case as I reckon he'd flourish in Australian conditions, but I imagine England will go with Cook and Root for the final game of this series, and into the Ashes in Australia. Then I added James Taylor and Gary Ballance, with one of them getting the number 6 spot, probably Taylor. I then stuck Bairstow in as the back-up keeper, don't rate him personally, but he'll tour. Then, the bowlers pretty much pick themselves, with Kerrigan getting in due to being the best performing spinner in the CC. Would have gone with Monty, but after his recent behaviour, I can't see them taking him with them to Australia.
Moeen Ali? Really?
Cas against Robson is not stringing 2 seasons together so there's no way Moeen deserves anything just because he's got some runs in division 2 - was woeful in division 1 last year.
Does Moeen deserve a place more than Ballance?
Don't reckon there'll be too many 'new, names in the squad. Could be something like:
Don't think we can count Moeen as a serious option to tour a place where he won't bowl. Asia maybe.
