No Yorkshire involvement, looks like Rashid is now just a white ball Cricketer. Wonder if Sam Northeast fancies a move to Division one to get noticed?!

Surprised that Finn isn't included.

That aside, if/when it's confirmed that Stokes can't go to Australia you would expect at least one, more likely, two of those will be called up to the full tour and replacements will be called.

Lions squads always make me wonder.

Wood clearly picked to keep fit if needed in main team but if some of the seamers are better than Coad it's beyond me and the bloke from Surrey I have hardly heard of at all. Perhaps some have been overlooked so they can play in BBL or other t20 gigs?

Coad had a wonderful season, but there will always be questions when a bowler is operating around the 80mph mark (and often below that). Now, I didn't see any of the Essex v Warks game on Sky, and reports suggest that this was around the pace that Porter was generating too - which defeats my own argument in a way. Whatever the truth of the matter, I would be fairly certain that his pace would be the main reason that Coad has missed out - especially on an Ashes tour as opposed to say if the whole setup was going to NZ where conditions might be more conducive to his style.

Medium pace bowlers like Coad rarely play international cricket nowadays unfortunately.

Porter looks a little bit sharper than Coad to me - low 80s, at a guess. He's also more experienced and closer to being the finished article.

What can anyone tell me about Mahmood from Lancs? Hopefully a better prospect than his namesake who had a serious penchant for leaking massive runs.

Judging by his sporadic appearances Mahmood does appear to be somewhat injury prone. However, I notice he played in the Headingley Roses match and had decent figures of 22-4-62-3 so maybe someone who was there remembers his bowling.

Saqib Mahmood is still only 20 years old which may explain his rare first team appearances for Lancashire hitherto. Along with Hameed he was a member of Lancashire's outstanding junior side which were national champions at both 15 and 17 years.
He has already represented England under 19's and the Lions. He is tall with a classic upright action, generating plenty of pace.
