So the decision is two from Brooks, Coad and Patto. Brooks and Coad for me.

There's a young, ginger haired lad called Jonny Bairstow who'll probably keep?

Hmmm. I was trying to stay optimistic about Ballance and the Test squad, thinking they may look elsewhere or stick with the team that finished the India series, but I'm worried now. I suppose Mr Root's opinion may be a deciding factor

Gulp!

A call up to the Test squad is now inevitable. Ballance's current form is simply too compelling.

I won't mention that some us took a lot of flack for predicting that England would come calling, and complaining about the ECB destabilizing our side while making a mockery of the County game. At least Jonny is back for a brief visit. Lets hope he puts up a big score, as there doesn't appear to be enough runs in the rest of the squad.

With all due respect Alex, we know about the ECB making a mockery of the county game, I don't think many on here or at the games dispute that, but is there any need to crow about "I told you so"?

Think it devalues a First class fixture that someone is available for first two days and not all the game.
You are either in the side or not. How does it work? Will another player be allowed to bat and bowl fresh last two days after Ballance has gone to Lions.
What if end of day 2 Ballance is not out overnight? Who bats the next morning?

@Twelth Man: Come on my friend, I have been involved in moderating and posting on these forums for 15 years and have never once resorted to a "told you so post," and this isn't the time. I'm merely pointing out the obvious and expressing my opinion. Relax.

Very good point regarding Gary in regards to him being say 50 not out overnight, unless he just won't be involved at all

Ballance can play the first 2 days, what a farce has Brian Rix taken over the ECB ?

The whole England Lions, England players rest periods, players in and out of CC matches, England players representing other counties to get match practice, etc, is becoming a farce now.

As you say, what happens if Gary is not out overnight at the end of day two??

Hasn't the ECB always done this with England call-ups? I hope they do the same for the Somerset game. Probably our best chance of seeing Ballance at all in that game.

It's easy. He has to retire but his replacement for the last two days then bats in his place. So line up Leaning or TKC to step in.

It's happened before I'm sure

It's happened on many occasions. Yorkshire must nominate his replacement before the start of the match and when he leaves the replacement takes over.

It can also happen in reverse with an England player returning half way through a county game and the nominated player standing down.

Is there anything that the England set up don't yet know about Gary Ballance?
He's good enough for England or he's not.
What will an outing against against SAfrica in a warm up match tell them that they don't already know?

The game isn't against South Africa A though, it's against South Africa.
