I don't remember him ever being in the pecking order in the first place...

The CBF pecking order. Seriously, lots of people were picking / pecking him this time last year. He'd just moved to Lancashire from Northants.

Gleeson did get picked for the Lions and do quite well around that time didn't he? Mad as the Lions selection can be, it shows he was at least somewhere on the pecking order.

Bairstow has been mediocre for all but one year in his Test career. Hes can have no complaints about being axed.

Aside from 2016, he averages 28 in his remaining 50 odd test - which is pathetic

Some interesting selections but the omission of David Willey from the T20 squad is strange. Chris Jordan is a great fielder but Willey is by far the better batsman and arguably a better bowler too. Mind you I don't think he's been helped by poor Yorkshire have been this season and their rotating doors policy to selection each match.

Quite surprised Bairstow hasn't exploded in the media somewhere - mind you, that might have been one of the things Smith and Titch wanted to talk to him about.

I don't know if Willey would even have been available - I believe his wife had a tricky pregnancy this Summer, and Yorkshire were certainly not selecting him for away games on that basis for a lot of the year.  Can't blame the bloke for wanting to be around in those circumstances.

He did play some away games didn't he? certainly played the notts game at trent bridge? and im pretty sure he played at Queens Park vs derby? although they're not massive trips
