Not a great shock, seems CSK are giving him some consistency batting at 3 and using his bowling as required...England would have picked him, batted him in 3/4 different places and dropped him by now.

Change to the selection structure and Ed Smith has gone.

Apparently he upset a lot of senior players because he wanted to be too involved in team selection where he should have had no involvement. He should have stopped with squad selection which was his remit. The winter tours were particularly strange with Woakes, Bairstow and Ali being shunted halfway across the globe and hardly playing, in Woakes case he didnít play at all.

The coach should have ultimate responsibility for selection and this aligns cricket with other sports. Whether a player with a technical flaw in his batting will seek advice from the head coach knowing that he decides whether to pick him or not?

Good to see Hameed in the runs. I think thereís still a player there, and a potentially very good one at that.

He has got bags of talent, what this really shows is how poorly managed he was by England (and he's not alone in it over the last 5-6 years), the county game is littered with players given a handful of games and then discarded.

He was out of form for a long time at Lancs though, wasn't he?

I understand that his father thought that he knew better than the Lancashire coaches so he was getting conflicting advice and his game suffered.

I saw a picture earlier and thought it was a different bloke. Besides the hair and beard, he's really filled out.

Thanks, VFL. I'd never heard that argument.

Itís interesting that because itís taken a bit of time but he appears to be returning to a good level at Notts. I wonder if there was something in the coaching at Lancs.
