England squads v NZ

England squads announced

Some surprises here. Sibley and Crawley were expected but Mahmood and Parkinson are left field choices. I am not surprised Bairstow was omitted, as his form this summer was poor and he should benefit from a few months off, but am amazed Foakes isn't going. Thoughts?

Although Foakes is the better keeper, Bairstow isn't that far behind. Foakes needed to be battering the door down with weight of runs - which he did last year, but this season has been a bit lean.
Bairstow rested more than dropped. They've given Buttler the gloves to see what he makes of it.
