England test tour of Pakistan December 2022


International Vice-Captain
This is why the squad was madness. No Second frontline spinner when Leach has chrohn's disease. Few frontline bowling options in general.

From the guardian....
"But late changes and even a 24-hour delay to the match are now possible, with a mystery “bug” having swept through the camp and only Harry Brook, Zak Crawley, Keaton Jennings, Ollie Pope and Joe Root present during Wednesday’s final training session at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.

While the session was optional, an England spokesperson confirmed that “13 to 14 members” of the tour party were suffering from symptoms of a “bug”, including “six or seven” of the 16-man playing squad. This includes Stokes himself, while Jack Leach, who manages Crohn’s disease, is also understood to be suffering symptoms. Will Jacks and Rehan Ahmed, the two reserve spinners, also missed nets."

lol i hope Root's back and shoulder are loose.
