Dont they have a policy of being able to pick players from outside the squad if they are playing county cricket? Pattinson was extremely good for Nottingham last year.Pattinson is the big query. I recon they will take him to the A tour and then if he gets through that he'll be a late inclusion to the squad.
They will want him to show continuity in some way shape or form. A tour or County cricket either one.Dont they have a policy of being able to pick players from outside the squad if they are playing county cricket? Pattinson was extremely good for Nottingham last year.
Yep plus in England it's not about speed, line and length is everything. The best test we played in the last Ashes series over there was when Siddle played.I said this when he got a shock recall last summer.
Said it was with an eye to the Ashes.
He should tour IMO.
Horses for courses.
I don't understand why we can't just add 1 more to the ssquad number if it really tight between 2 peopleGiven Starc, Cummins, Hazlewood and Richardson will all be in the World Cup squad, it will give Pattinson and Siddle plenty of chance in the A tour to impress
According to Fox Soorts, Wade is in the A squad
If Siddle is showing County form like 2018, he has to be ahead of Richardson (and Starc, though different styles) in England.If Pattinson is fit, does Siddle go? If we assume we take five fast bowlers, Starc, Cummins and Hazlewood go, Pattinson is a talent, and has Richardson passed Siddle?
No reason they can't, even one of the quicks mentioned that due to the schedule for the Ashes, its very likely there will be a bit of rotation between the quicks so they might take an extra one in case. But I'd be playing Patto in the first test if he is fit, by that time he'll have been playing for 6 months, if that isn't enough what is? Cummins probably played 1 game and was rushed back in!I don't understand why we can't just add 1 more to the ssquad number if it really tight between 2 people
And if Kristof's squad of 17 is right and you can still call these 5 or 6 players up at any time.I still would have Maxwell in front of Burns,Patterson and Head at this stage but a lot depends on what he does at Lancashire in his limited opportunities there.NOT a good start with the bat but his bowling performance surprised me and if the test match pitch is more suited to spin could be good support to Lyon.And lets not forget his fielding.You technically will as there are 5-6 playing County cricket
