While Keaton's Cricinfo page says South Africa I aint picking him for nothing, didn't pick Duckett because he is quite a new opener who has had success giving it a biff in Div 2. Not sure that would translate in the cut and trust of the newly formed 2 Tier under 25s Test Championship (Which is a league)

True, I'd be picking him (Duckett) on red-ball form. That's what they do nowadays right?

Incidentally it's quite nice to see the Aussies complaining about the same things as us (middle-order batsmen and spinners).

They also have an opener problem, Burns did really well for them in Australia now they have dropped him after two bad matches and the replacement, no spring chicken has only gone and scored a hundred

I would take that opener problem any day of the week for England, as opposed to the one we have. (Sean Marsh though, really? Tried, tested, found wanting outside the subcontinent.)

But it does at least give some balance to the side: two Mitches and two Marshes.

I do wonder if the ECB hypnotise journalist to have one message because both Lawrence Booth and Chris Stocks are calling for Buttler in India and not giving him the gloves
