With just over twenty-four hours until England take on Bangladesh in the First Test at Chittagong, let’s hope that the England selectors get the balance right when narrowing the 16-strong party down to the final XI.
Haseeb Hameed and Ben Duckett seem likely to make their Test debuts whilst Zafar Ansari and Jake Ball will also hope to make their bows during the tour.
Thirty-nine-year-old Gareth Batty’s last Test Match was against Bangladesh in Durham, way back in 2005 and he looks set to smash fellow Surrey stalwart Martin Bicknell’s record of 114 matches between Test Match appearances. England have played a whopping 142 Test Matches since Batty last donned England whites. He’ll be looking to haul that bowling average of 66.63 down a bit too!
