Plus I think there's a chance they'll replace Dawson with Rashid, in which case our good 6-8 of Bresnan, Rashid, Hodd, becomes our questionable 6-8 of Bresnan, Hodd, Rafiq.

I agree with the thinking that Rashid is off the red-ball team list because the management don't trust him not to bowl one or more four-balls an over.

That is my expectation regarding Rashid too. However three commentators in yesterday's Times were asked to name their eleven for the Oval. None of them made more than two changes. Michael Atherton and John Westerby left Dawson out for Rashid, Steve James left him out for an extra batsman. I don't think Adil is entirely off the radar yet.

Well at least the Old Trafford test begins before our crucial CC match at Scarborough so we will know who is available after the final England XI has been decided eg if Rashid or Plunkett is twelfth man.

I was amused by Westerby's team, his response to a double batting collapse being to drop two bowlers!
