Cricket 19: NWHTC Round Ten – Squad Announcement

Your England Test squad for the North Western Hemisphere Test Championship Round Ten match against Netherlands at Headingley, Leeds is:

Dawid Malan

Haseeb Hameed

Dominic Sibley

Joe Root (Captain)

Harry Brook

Ben Stokes

Jos Buttler (Wicketkeeper)

Rob Keogh

George Garton

Jamie Porter

James Anderson

Lewis Gregory

Having already secured a place in the inaugural NWHTC final and with a busy schedule of ODIs on the horizon, we’ve opted to rest the following players for this match: Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Jamie Overton and Stuart Broad.

The following players all return to the Test squad: Ben Stokes, Rob Keogh, Jamie Porter and James Anderson. Lewis Gregory, recently capped at ODI level, will act as twelfth man.

Congratulations to Yorkshire’s Harry Brook who will make his Test debut on his home ground as well as Sussex’s George Garton who is promoted from twelfth man duties to the playing XI for the first time.

Though we’ve already qualified for the final and Netherlands will finish in the bottom two, I’m expecting some top performances from our players as they each look to secure a place in the playing XI for the final against arch rivals Scotland.

  1. As a Sussex faithful and fan, I am excited to see how Garton goes. He has been hampered by injury in real life and I am sure he could be a future England player. Quick left armer.

    Your rotation is certainly better than mine and it is good to see England with a range of players worthy of international honours. Hopefully Keogh will perform better than he has done.

    If I remember correctly, Porter made his debut against Netherlands and it will be interesting to see the similarity in him and Anderson. The final will I am sure make for big selection headaches…
