England Pakistan 2018 - GrizzlyBear - 16-05-2018

I'll stick my neck out and say that selecting Jos Buttler is muddled thinking. Being able to play trick shots when the bowlers are trying to hide the ball is no guide as to the ability to build an innings when they are trying to get you out. I would be happy to be proved wrong but I don't think he should be in the squad.

I rate Dom Bess. He will be a very fine player but whether he yet has the game to trouble Pakistani Test batsmen remains to be seen. His opportunity comes for want of any alternatives but it would be great to see him take it.

I am inclined to think that Buttler deserves the chance to establish himself as a Test batsman.
He is obviously an extraordinary talent so if he could succeed at Test level, it would be a great boost for England.
With him, Bairstow and Foakes, if only the ECB could invent a version of the game that requires three wicketkeepers, we would be world champions in no time.

Terry... I agree....
