England Meet The New Boss

For the England girls, today saw the announcement of the first squad of the post-Lane era, and it was very-much a case of: meet the new boss, same as the old boss! Injuries aside, all-bar-one of the players who went to the World Cup, are in the new selectors' squad to face Pakistan next month*.

As with the men's team, the biggest debate is likely to center around who is to open the batting alongside the captain. With Danni Wyatt looking distinctly out of her depth at the top of the order during the World Cup, it is going to be interesting to see who gets the nod from the selectors. Though with Holly Colvin injured, and Wyatt therefore all-but certain to play as a bowler, perhaps they will stick with her for the Pakistan games and see if she can settle into the role.

* The "bar-one" is Tammy Beaumont - who it turns out is captaining the Academy team. (I did wonder what she'd done wrong - nothing, it turns out quite the opposite!)
