I wouldn't be surprised to see Rhodes and Waite involved in this format.Only the top 3 in each group qualify this year, so it is even more important that we win our first three matches when we have all 5 of our England players available. None of the 5 will be available for the quarter-finals, semi-finals and maybe not even the Final if we get there.
From the ECB
The knockout stages have changed this season, with only the top three from each group qualifying. The winners will progress straight to the semi finals on June 16 and 17, in which they will enjoy home advantage. Their opposition will be determined by two play-offs on June 13 between the teams finishing second and third in each group – second in the North Group at home to third in the South, and vice versa.
Could have a youthful team something like this considering pur England players.
I could see this team. An oportunity for our fringe/developing players and protection to some of our ageing players.
