That's a strange one, seeing as they would have been arriving from New Zealand.

However, reports read as if it's England that have called off the games.

Great century from Beaumont today.

Can't see NZ getting 348

Doesn't look like Mo is going to play a lot of red ball cricket next season according to the BBC report.  The Pears could do with a decent number three batsman and a useful spinner.  With Leach stepping down as captain, Gidman should fuck off, but before he does that, he needs to ask Mo to take over as captain.

Someone else can ask the question….Gidman should just go and get on the m5 now before he runs low on fuel. 

Would say an opener and a number 3 are priorities….happy to go with Baker as spinner & loan one in if needed during season

This is good news, because there's a few players in the main squad who are starting to show signs that age and injury are catching up with them (eg Brunt and Shrubsole)

Watching the Sunrisers in the IPL and they’ve got this 21 year old Umran Malik who’s hurtling them down at 93 mph! If he keeps fit he’s going to be a menace.

As strong a side as we could select, but you feel that Stokes and Archer not being available are hammer blows to our hopes.

Yep, real shame that Archer and Stokes won't be there and be able to play on that stage.  Think we would be up against it in any circumstances if their bowling attack are all fit and firing though.  Can only see them ripping through our batting line up throughout the series.

Guess our options were somewhat impacted by injury, but looks like they have gone with too many fast-medium bowlers again, a number of whom have had a bad time down there before.

Is the plan still to have a Lions tour going on at the same time ?

If so, it'll be interesting to see what pace bowlers are included in that squad, because I suspect that a couple of them might be needed in the Ashes.

The England Fast Bowling Programme, just seems to produce injured players at the moment.

There is a simultaneous Lions tour, it was mentioned they'll be practice opponents for the Test side.
