Butler chosen as the cover for Boult.
Look out for Latham to pop up in a bit of English YB40 with Scotland now the tests are done.

Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

Butler selected ahead of Henry? May as well give the latter a crack, IMO
Henry is a walking back injury.
Had surgery last year didn't he for it.
He has corrected his run up somewhat to make it less bad for his back but it is still bad.
He basically dawdles into the crease and then jumps and whips it down at 130ks.
Ellis was also a walking back injury (five stress fractures) until he had the pins/wires/bone graft fusion surgery Bond had.
Henry's op exactly the same with the same surgeon I believe, so if he breaks, at least it won't be in the same place.
Instead, that 2nd England T20 suggested there's still hyper-competitive rage bubbling away in Butler, even intensified by how everything's panned out. Scratch the surface, the whole 'I've mellowed, I'm much more skilful' line is almost certainly a lie.
Any chance of that guy who scored 222 in the LA game getting a shot? Can't recall who it was.
Noticed some **** other than me put that up actually -

No, Latham will be paged in from his Scotland stint for any top-order injury by the sounds.
No Jeets? Injured, out of form or out of favour?

Out of favour. Playing over in Warwickshire and hasn't been doing too badly.
Probably the fourth best limited overs spinner NZ has, however. I'd rate Vettori, NcCullum and Williamson ahead of him.
