Yes, I'd prefer to see them start with another batsman as an opener in the UAE rather than Moeen. I can see England throwing a new opener into the fray on the South Africa tour which would be pretty tough on the new guy. I'd rather they blood a new opener against Pakistan to at least gain some experience. Unfortunately I don't have a whole ton of faith in the selectors and expect them to stick with what is familiar, so I'm expecting them to go with Moeen anyway.
Can someone explain briefly what is happening with Phil Simmons?!
He's been suspended after (correctly) suggesting that the selection panel picks for non performance based reasons after he and Clive Lloyd were outvoted on picking Pollard and Dwayne Bravo in the ODI squad.
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
