Taking lessons from Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Who'd want to do the job?
Hobart will be their 6th Test & 3rd captain.

I think their is 4-5 due to play CPL with Mujeeb , Nabi & Rashid all missing so be curious to see how they perform in case they get a Big Bash contract.

James Bracey confirmed to debut for England
Bracey was going to come out and play for my club a couple of summers back, as our assistant/high performance coach is pretty close mates with him from his time overseas. But it didn’t eventuate as Bracey got his first call up to the England Lions setup for their big tour they did a couple of years ago during the English winter.

...and a century too.

I see they dropped Blundell - I didn't expect they'd do that.

Highest score by a debutant at Lord's as well.

Think they just had to find a spot for Conway.

Latham , Williamson , Taylor & Nicholls positions are solid.

On a side note I didn't realise Glenn Phillips was born in South Africa.
