Squad to tour Bangladesh announced on Friday, Hales and Morgan have already announced they won’t go due to security concerns. Fair enough I guess, everyone has to think about what’s best for them, but Hales couldn’t half do with bashing some below-average bowling around to secure his position and Morgan is captain of the one day team, which is awkward.
Professional gobshite Michael Vaughan says it’s a huge mistake, but no-one listens to Michael Vaughan any more.
Anyway, it leaves an opener’s spot up for grabs. Smart money seems to be on Lancashire young gun Haseeb Hameed, but Ben Duckett has had a mental season for Northants and might be in the frame.
And Yorkshire are messing it up in the CC, if anyone cares about that.
