We can hope that Morne M might be a little undercooked.

Thinking about what LaLaLa said, I guess what was meant was a possible lack of focus, with a big final coming, rather than a lack of motivation. I'm sure it's something that AH and JK will be keen to guard against. But perhaps it would be as well to make quite a few changes for the red ball game, not simply to freshen things up, as Grockle suggested, but to ensure that we have fewer players who might, just might, be tempted to look ahead to a day out at Lord's.

Trescothick has no chance of being selected for said final. Brooks has a limited chance only. The GREAT Jack Leach, very sadly, apparently no chance. Steve Davies, presumably a limited chance...although Davies might just think that if he can show really well in the red ball games before Lord's then maybe, just maybe, he might manage to usurp George Bartlett (which might leave Tom B free to concentrate on his batting?)... I wouldn't be all that surprised if Davies goes like gangbusters against his former county in the CC, precisely for that reason.
