England tour New Zealand this winter with five T20Is and two Tests scheduled.
My squads are listed below roughly in batting order followed by reserves but particularly in the Test format Sibley or Pope could slot in whilst a bowler is rotated/rested. I’d also anticipate some workload management for players such as Stokes, Woakes and Archer in the T20Is and particularly Stokes and Broad in Tests.
Jos Buttler (Wicketkeeper)*
Jonny Bairstow (Wicketkeeper)*
Eoin Morgan (Captain)
*Can both be deployed as wicketkeeper during the series.
Joe Root (Captain)
Ben Foakes (Wicketkeeper)
*Jos Buttler and Ollie Pope can both act as wicketkeeping cover for this two-match series.
Jonny Bairstow would be dropped from the Test side. Players can be rested/rotated where necessary during each series as oppose to being omitted entirely.
Some extremely good players (Too many to mention) miss out. A variety of spin bowlers have made cases particularly in the T20 format but Dom Bess remains a better back-up option for now in Tests despite a less than stellar domestic season. Numerous other players pushed for selection in both formats and those players would be selected for England Lions in the appropriate format.
