    Sad news about poor Finn. Reminds me of Chris Tremlett.

    I thought either Liam Plunkett or Mark Wood with their extra pace would be the next cab on the rank but good luck to Tom C who has a good attitude to the game and maybe the selectors took into account his batting. Shame he is from Sorry mind.

    I feel a bit of a fraud. I am going to this on the 5th of Jan in Sydney and know nothing about cricket whatsoever . Group of 14 chaps and chicks, good mix of Oz an English, looking forward to it a lot

    Surprised Plunkett didn't get the nod, Wood is a busted flush now. Good luck to Curran.

    Got to feel for Plunkett not being called up as a replacement as he arguably merited a seat on the plane in the first place. Curran is probably being lined up to replace Jimmy when he retires. Massive leap, but the ECB have backed him since day one. Our seam attack does look very one-paced.

    Jake Ball sprained his ankle bowling overnight. Starting to feel like the seam department is doomed; still two weeks to go.
