Pope getting the gloves ahead of Foakes?

I was thinking the same thing!
I know Pope is averaging some very decent 1st Class run stats, but I still think Foakes deserves a break.
Saying that and looking at it from a different point of view, I guess the selectors realise that Foakes has some quality to offer. But maybe they are testing Pope to see how he performs at a slightly better level?

They know what Foakes can do so I don't think it's anything really against him. By giving Pope the gloves it also allows them to have a look at another bowler ie. Both Bess and Leach against each other.

Must be a deal with Surrey as Foakes will probably captain Surrey.

Do other counties get these deals?  Surely if Foakes is the best pick he should be picked?

Though I suppose Surrey would argue they've already contributed three to the squad with Burns and Curran.

I suspect Alec Stewart is an adept politician with the selectors, Foakes hasn't played much for Surrey and we are providing a load of players for international duty

However as are Yorkshire, so I suspect they need to get better at doing a Stewie!

I think those bridges were burned circa the Lords game two years ago.   The fact that Matt Fisher is in the squad, despite not playing a single first class game this year, and only one last year, is particularly galling given how crucial he is to our white ball team (yes, I agree incidentally that he is a future test player...but not yet!)

If that was the way the Lions was picked the above squad would look very different!

England starting well in the A match today, we still need Cook's runs this summer there's surely no doubt about that.

Gubbins again thou getting runs, this guy has been a bit unlucky not to feature yet.

Vijay,Pant,yadav and Rahane all in India's side, they have some strength in depth now.

cant wait for the test series!

Rory Burns might regret missing out today.

Turns out Surrey are playing the Windies A team and using the Kent Wicket keeper Rouse as foakes is being rested.
Staggering that Surrey are playing without about 3 keepers.
But Burns and Pope are with the Lions, Foakes rested and Smith is with Eng U19s...
