      Stunned that Monty is in. Wow.
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      Same here, sort of. I'm not sure they had a choice after Kerrigan's failing & Tredwell's gargantuan 14 CC wickets this season. Where else could they go?

      I agree to an extent, but who else is there as back-up spinner? Treadwell's taken about a dozen 1st class wickets this season. Kerrigan isn't (yet) good enough. Probably next on the list is Ollie Rayner!

      Also Carberry ahead of Compton? Hmm.

      We are woefully short of decent spinners.

      I agree with Carberry over Compton, mind you. Compton just never convinces me whenever I see him.

      Calderon is the type of guy that if your daughter married, you would worry that she was not good enough for him.

      Let's hope that this does Monty some good. No Onions, Bresnan or Compton. Is Bresnan injured?

      Will they stick with the current batting line up, or put Carberry in to open and put Root at 5/6? Or something else entirely?
      Sanibona!!

      Good to see Tramlett in the squad. Extra pace is always important out there.

      I think this decision stinks. Compton did more than enough to be part of this side, however, I think his response to being dropped was frowned upon. I get a feeling this is a personality decision rather than a playing skill or track record decsion.

      Who bats at 6 then? Given his form in the last few weeks, Stokes may well get a go.
