So the ECB are saving Bairstow for the one dayer v Ireland as neither of their preferred odi keepers are available as they are playing in the ipl.Can someone please tell me who and how are the restrictions placed on who can and can not play in CC? Anderson played for Lancs in first round of CC games, Broad also for Notts. Cook playing now for Essex. Buttler Jordan, Morgan, Stokes playing IPL. Am I paranoid, but seems the only folk needing a rest are Bairstow, Root and Woakes, and Bairstow particularly hasn't played in an age.
Why don't they ask Buttler and Billings to rest in the ipl and pick them for the Ireland match?
