Who's next? Stoneman is obviously close to a call up.

The Durham left hander? He can't be especially young any more.

I'm a bit worried about Jennings as well as Ballance to be honest, he also seems to have technical deficiencies which isn't what you want in an opener. I know there have been those who have succeeded in spite of this (Trescothic for one) but I'm old fashioned and prefer my openers to be Boycottesque in their technique.

I know young Hameed can't buy a run at the moment but I think that's because he's tried to become expansive. I'd have kept him involved and let him get some tests under his belt before the winter in Australia.
