    Guptill needs some time in the middle so he can sort his game out and play some long innings. Leave him be for a while in domestix imo.

    Yes, but if he does get picked in the test squad, he might make an impact in the 2 FC games in the lead up (especially if BMac and Taylor stay in India until the last possible moment).

    Longshot I know, and not necessarilly that I agree with it 100%, but it's just a theory.

    Pretty much the team from Eden Park is the one that deserves to start that first test.

    Unless he makes a double hundred in the tour game against a decent bowling line up I wouldn't consider him at all. Even then I don't think he'd get in for the England series. Someone would need to fail.

    Brownlie is a better batsman that Guptill anyway imo.

    Hopefully our magnificent fast bowlers (just doing a WW there) can find swing with the Duke balls.

    Any idea what the big difference is between these and the Kookaburra's? Heard something about the lacquer on the Duke's that take about 10 overs to come off AND THEN they swing?

    Maybe Wagner will open the bowling?

    Boult and Southee swung the Duke earlier than the 10th in the West Indies. That's also where Doull reported Wagner was earning the ire of his fellow seamers for taking chunks out of the shiny side.

    Aaaaaaaah - they have the Duke in the Windies.

    I wonder if WAGner will get dropped if he does that again.

    England performance squad for the summer.

    1. Alastair Cook (Essex) Test and One-Day Captain
    2. Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire) T20 Captain
    3. James Anderson (Lancashire)
    4. Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire)
    5. Ian Bell (Warwickshire)
    6. Ravi Bopara (Essex)
    7. Tim Bresnan (Yorkshire)
    8. Danny Briggs (Hampshire)
    9. Jos Buttler (Somerset)
    10. Nick Compton (Somerset)
    11. Jade Dernbach (Surrey)
    12. Steven Finn (Middlesex)
    13. Alex Hales (Nottinghamshire)
    14. James Harris (Middlesex)
    15. Craig Kieswetter (Somerset)
    16. Michael Lumb (Nottinghamshire)
    17. Stuart Meaker (Surrey)
    18. Eoin Morgan (Middlesex)
    19. Graham Onions (Durham)
    20. Monty Panesar (Sussex)
    21. Samit Patel (Nottinghamshire)
    22. Kevin Pietersen (Surrey)
    23. Matt Prior (Sussex)
    24. Joe Root (Yorkshire)
    25. Graeme Swann (Nottinghamshire)
    26. James Tredwell (Kent)
    27. Chris Tremlett (Surrey)
    28. Jonathan Trott (Warwickshire)
    29. Chris Woakes (Warwickshire)
    30. Luke Wright (Sussex)

    No great surprises. Bopara getting in is disappointing. I was hoping we wouldn't see him for a bit. Kieswetter I guess is the other who presumably won't be involved in any squads. Everybody else you can see being in one squad or another.

    Taylor, and IMHO Hildreth the unluckiest there. I mean Lumb in just because he may play some t20, bleh.

    No we couldn't have, because of the small matter of a 5 Test Ashes series...

    Generally when one side who usually takes part in a 5 Test series becomes semi-minnow, they get the amount of Tests in the series reduced, like the Frank Worrell. Imagine the Ashes will be a 3 Test series after Australia get whitewashed, leaving more time for serious opposition like New Zealand and a resurgent West Indies.

    Valid point tbf, NZ's batting is probably better than Aus' batting at this stage.
