    Yeah in all likelyhood that is the team.

    That squad has one too many bowlers. It'll be Finn or Onions, not both.

    My bad, didn't realise Robson's cricinfo blurb was a year out of date.

    Reckon the selectors will go with Monty? Taking his wickets at 40 a piece this season and just got in trouble with the police, I can't see them picking him. Simon Kerrigan looking a much more likely option I think, especially considering he's just made the Lions squad ahead of Monty. If he bowls well in the Lions game, I'd be surprised if they go back to Monty.

    Of course they'll go with Panesar. His indiscretions have nothing to do with his ability as a cricketer.

    It still counts for something, though. Bairstow is **** and Root would be much better down the order so he'd slot in really nicely. Realistically the alternative is going back to Compton, so you don't have an awful lot to lose by giving him a game. Whereas if it comes off you'll have the opening slot sorted for 10+ years at the expense of Australia.

    Of course they should have a look at his technique first, but since they somehow missed Bairstow playing across every straight ball I'm not sure I trust the selectors there.

    Don't they, though. He's embarrassingly unprofessional, this just takes it to a new level. Can't bat, can't field, can't run, harasses women and pisses on bouncers. Not someone you want to bring on tour, especially if he's not even likely to play.

    Pick Ravi over Onions as a specialist bowler - would love to see Scaly's reaction then.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Not like he's taking heaps of wickets at a decent average either. He's not bowling particularly well, has acted incredibly unprofessionally, and hasn't been picked in the Lions squad. I'd suggest the selectors have been put off him, and it'll be a while until he gets picked again, especially when Kerrigan is bowling so well for Lancs.

    He is going back to Northants apparently if he is released. That could be what his career needs.

    I think that's ridiculously unfair on Panesar given how hard he supposedly works on his game to be at the level he's at. He's not the greatest batsman or fielder but he's apparently worked hard to be as bad as he is, as odd as that sounds.

    It's not a great look for a player but I don't think binning a player on the back of one indiscretion off the field of play is a particularly prudent move.

    Reports suggest it's not an isolated incident though and he was on a final warning.

    Monty Panesar faces sack at Sussex and race against time to find new county to keep England hopes alive - Telegraph

    Yep, on a final warning from Sussex. Not sure what the other incidents were, but can't be good if they're looking into how to get rid of him.
