Interesting if it’s correct that McCullum is going to be the Test coach.

Interesting indeed. An attacking captain, I wonder if we’ll return to that approach in the Test side?

Interesting choice.  Would have thought he'd be a better white ball coach but will be good to have someone who takes the game to the opponents.  Always rated him as a player.

I’m quite excited by the combination - a bold choice was needed.

McCullum is a very interesting appointment.  Personally would have looked at Kirsten or Langer given they are more likely to have top of the order expertise which we desperately need. 

Should be an interesting first squad.

He could have done the decent thing and joined the Bears before getting crocked!

Sorry to hear this news; he was one of the few bright sparks from the Windies tour.

Squad for the first test which starts in a couple of weeks, good to see that players that are performing in county cricket are getting a chance. Jimmy and Broad are back

Neŵ white ball coach appointed. No I’ve never heard of him either

Interesting that it looks like they’ll be putting Pope at 3.

Interesting move. They've tried putting an opener there and cajoling Root into playing there, so in the absence of a stand-out Number 3, it's time for another plan

The return of Jimmy & Broad was a certainty. However, the fast bowling ranks are looking a bit threadbare at the moment.

Hopefully Potts will get a game

I make it about 7/8 pace bowlers are unavailable for this test -no wonder the numbers are a bit thin!!

Can England borrow a couple of quicks off NZ ?

They’re able to leave out Wagner and Henry
