Cricketer Of The Year
Quite surprising that they have dropped Zaman so close to WC after retaining him all these months/years.


International Coach
Annoyed with Khushdil still being there hopefully he will be bumped off the playing Xi soon.


U19 Vice-Captain
Looking forward to seeing Wood, Stone and Woakes back and hopefully Helm gets some game time after a strong Hundred. Surprised England persevered with Gleeson after he took a bit of a hammering in his international appearances so far.

With the bat, well its the Alex Hales show in town. I wouldn't have brought him back myself but there you go. Hopefully Jacks, Cox and Brook get some games too.

But I imagine England will want to settle their side at some point in this series notwithstanding the regulars who are missing.


Cricket Spectator
A lot of "openers" in England's squad (Jacks, Malan, Salt, Buttler, Hales)... Though one expects Malan to play at #3 ?
And the bowlers selection will be difficult with Curran, Woakes & Willey.

Could be expect something like that ?
Hales - Buttler (Salt for the first game) - Malan - Brook - Ali - Curran/Wood - Willey - Woakes - Rashid - Topley
There's 10 there. Could they have Will Jacks in there ?


Cricketer Of The Year
So who among Salt and Hales would start the world cup to open with Buttler? With Salt being incumbent, I suppose he will start.


International Regular
This is such a weird tour. They'll be playing T20s in Pakistan then fly to Australia for the World Cup and fly back to Pakistan again for tests!
