Reports today have been that Denly is fit and will play the second warmup game with Bairstow to fly home. Only two tests so can't see Crawley getting a game, but clearly hasn't done his chances any harm!

Looking forward to seeing the first properly balanced England test team in years...

He's probably got himself on the SA tour though!

good to see selectors making decent decision around cover too!

Think that was a given to be fair - he won't bat again on this tour and noone who might get picked instead will be playing any first class, so unless he tips a pint over someone's head or nuts a bouncer then it'd be strange selection not to take Crawley to SA!

Not a disaster but didn't pull up any trees either.  Shade under 600 runs at 30.   No tons.

Looks like we are going with this for the tests...as the A match starts. Theres no Woakes but I really like the look of the side, one keeper batsman and a specialist spinner, whats the forum view? Best we can put out I think and some younger guys getting a chance.Sam Curran I think could end up a better bat than he is a bowler but an all rounder for now.Stokes not too high at 5 and time for Pope to settle in away from the top 4.

Burns
Sibley
Denly
Root
Stokes
Pope
Butler
Curran
Archer
Leach
Broad.

Pope is a good keeper batsman, you are right.

More seriously, I am looking forward to when Pope is at three to be honest.

Take some pics if you can, especially of Stokes' bat for @SouthpawMark...!

Team's out, as expected with Curran getting the nod ahead of Woakes. Looking forward to this series, always enjoy when England play NZ - even if the possibility of Bolt/Southee tearing England apart in a session is always lurking!

This from Dobell on twitter, track looks interesting...

Wow, that pitch looks a shocker. It looks like some parts of it were relaid about a week ago.

Hopefully the forecast is for clear skies and warm temperatures. Southee only ever seems to take wickets when the weather is grim and he can get the ball to hoop around.

I was down there yesterday. I was supposed to throw balls but Graham Thorpe needed some spinners so I put my hand up. Ended up bowling nude offspin to Denly, Stokes and Pope. Right next door was Archer and Broad steaming in. Great experience and all the team were great to talk to.
On the pitch. Thats just an interesting photo where some of the grass has been pushed up (probably so the guy who posted it got some likes), the pitch will be a belter.
Weather is good all week and can get pretty hot. Can also get very cold when the Southerly comes through. I'm heading over today.

Sounds like a great day. If they want to face some slow left arm filth, let them know Im ready and waiting, as long as they fly me out 1st class.
