So realistically Buttler won't be able to fight for selection until the winter tours? I know the SKY pundits appear to have shares in and are calling for his back in straight away but I don't think its fair on Jos to bring him in when he probably hasn't thought about Red ball batting skills since the SA Tests.

@nickcricket where do they see him coming in? Presumably not for Bairstow.. so just as a batsmen? I'd rather we added someone who can bat/bowl a bit - Pete Trego sort of style (not that he'd ever get a call, his time has gone)

Jos is a tricky one really. But ultimately he is the one who has to make the decision how important his test place is to him. He could do with a good run for Lancs but would they really want him back in their side at the moment?

@StaggerBreaths is the obvious choice..

Glos have made a great start today, bowling out Northants for 176. However, we've chosen to get annoyed about the mixed T20 & CC scheduling on the blog thejessoptavernview.blogspot.com #countycricketlive
