    Seems a bit pointless picking Wood in this squad unless they are keeping him ticking over in the expectation of him being in the squad for Windies tour in the new year. Not like they don't know what he can do and may as well look at a youngster.

    Pity that Parkinson had to miss out due to injury. Like the look of him and he has output whereas Crane still needs a bit more of the latter.

    If there is an injury in the squad in SL I expect Wood would be called up even though they hardly need 6 fast bowlers. He is the most experienced.
    The Lions bowling will be Overtons, Wood, Porter and Mahmood (called up for the injured Tongue). Will Wood and Porter open the bowling?

    Bowlers for the WI Test series would be the six now in SL.

    Ollie Pope released from the test squad for this. Thought he would have made this squad from the beginning.

    The T20 & limited overs freelancers showing up the young 4-day scholars is becoming a theme world wide. We laugh when the selectors pick test squads from it but not sure we can for much longer.

    Ollie Pope more laughable than Ben McDermott ( aus) I wonder why he gets selected in English test team to SL ?

    He was release yesterday for eng Lion out for 0.

    Captain Bess and Billings digs in well vs spin

    Billings has a pretty average fc career but I reckon he'd do pretty well at test level as WK. Plays real pace well and plays good spin well. Decent keeper too. Has had a disjointed fc career coming in and out due to IPL/England ODI and T20, and Kent wickets have tended to favour the medium pace plodder. Has basically no chance of getting in the england test side though given the options.

    Clarke another failure at lions level. Doesn't have a good record at this level.
    Might have been worthwhile Clarke having the winter off the lions. I think he's been away every winter for a long time playing u19s, grade cricket, and then lions the last few winters. Have a bit of a break from the game and then start working at his technique with his new county.
    It was interesting that Foakes had turned down the option of the lions this winter (before they called him up to the test squad), and was intending to have a break from the game, given he'd been playing cricket constantly for a few years.

    The bowling figures so far are so strange.

    Wood going at 5 RPO and rest of bowlers about 1 RPO.
