Foakes would be the obvious candidate, or it would be Buttler's potential route back into the side. Don't see that it would unbalance the side? Would be 1-5 batsmen, 6 allrounder, 7 keeper, 8 bowling allrounder, 9/10/11 bowlers regardless of whether Bairstow played as keeper or one of the batsmen, which is a cracking balance to a side.

I reckon at one point there was nothing to choose between them with the gloves, but in the last 18 months maybe bairstow is now the better Keeper

He seems to be improving a bit like Alec Stewart did in the 90's, he wasn't great but def became a very good keeper in the back end of his career.
I don't think YJB is in Alec's class now but he's getting better, there's daylight between them now IMO.

How are we getting Barstow up to 5?

Malan currently occupies that spot and I have a feeling his place is safe for the foreseeable

Would be Malan to 3 or Root/Malan both move up a spot, Vince dropped. All hypothetical of course but reckon it's safe to say Vince will be a goner if he doesn't get runs vs NZ, so a perfectly plausible route to Bairstow giving up the gloves in tests. Don't see that we can pick yet another new player in the top 3 so someone currently in the team will have to bite the bullet and move up if Vince goes. Don't think it likely but could even be Bairstow.

I have a strange feeling Vince will get at least one big one in New Zealand to secure his place for the summer

You heard it here first  ;)

I don't know whether to hope he does or doesn't to be honest! We all got hopeful when he batted so well first dig in the Ashes, but suspicion remains that a bloke who struggles a bit with the step up from county div 2 to div 1 isn't cut out for tests...

They've not helped Vince by batting him and Malan the wrong way round...but he desperately needs big runs, or at least a different way of failing to make them.

I'm not convinced about Vince, he seems like he is nearly there but never quite gets it.Frustrating player.

Totally agree with the above thou, if he is going to play him and Malan are in the wrong positions.

Hales is a sad excuse for an international player, he can't play white ball against a uni bowler. That guy had Hales' number for sure, he defended only one ball properly. Sheesh!
