Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
I'm fine with no Woakes in ODI and T20. He probably deserves a test squad place. I'd go with him over Bresnan. Given his first class career it would be harsh to continually overlook him especially when Bresnan has performed as he has in recent times. I don't particularly think Woakes will succeed at test level but there has to be some kind of reward for continued excellence in the first class game - he deserves a chance to prove whether he is good enough.
As always the Lions squad is probably more interesting than the full squads for English fans. It's interesting that Foakes is already the Lions wicketkeeper (no other WK in the squad) given he's only played 5 first class games and no ODI games. Must be rated highly- shame he is stuck behind Foster and Wheater at Essex. He is the second Wicketkeeper batsmen to do well out of the u19 world cup with De Kock making his international debut last week. Topley from the U19's also makes the squad, It will be an important tour for all those playing given the ashes and then the world cup are in consecutive years in Aus.
Englands ODI squad looks its normal boring self.
Nah, I think it's still Ryder's goal to be back for the England series, provided Ross is back in the team as well. He's never had anything to do with Hesson, and he's meant to be pretty good mates with McCullum, so I don't think there's reason to believe that he'll stay out of the team because of the current administration.
Don't think he'll help much in the tests with the way he's batting at the moment. Could still be pretty destructive in the limited overs matches though.
Ronchi to score a couple of tons in the tests.
