Not absolutely certain, but lots of clues from the forum this evening. I think Alsop will open (Adams not fit) Edwards and Topley to bowl pace with McLaren. Not sure whether Crane will play – maybe Tomlinson? Otherwise I’m just guessing but I’ll be surprised if the first six isn’t Carberry, Alsop, Smith, Vince, Dawson, Wheater, which probably means Ervine at seven then the bowlers from above.

Alsop rather than Weatherley? Vince will possibly bat at 3, may help his test chances although opening may be a better option.

Comment by Paul

I think Alsop is probably ahead of Weatherley at this time, but it’s close. Another close one is McManus or Wheater in f/c games. McManus did ‘keep in the first innings against the students.

Comment by Bob Elliott

Surely Wheater will keep in the Championship because of his proven often explosive batting?

Comment by James

Yes, I expect Wheater will get the job, but the same can be said for Ervine. If Berg had been available . . . ?

Comment by Bob Elliott

To be honest a fit Berg would always be in my side.

In my eyes Ervine is a difficult selection as his bowling seems to have declined dramatically. When he bats well he is well worth a place but he just doesn’t seem to be consistent enough to bat in the top five.

Comment by James

From what was said last night – which is online I believe – Alsop and I think he should be ahead. After all he played Championship cricket at the back end of 2014 and needs to get his chance – he’s a couple of years older than Weatherley and in good nick. Otherwise he’ll end up like Kenway, Prittipaul, Benham, Roberts, Terry (etc etc)

Alsop deservedly ahead of weatherly at this moment in time. Wouldn’t be surprised if in future we see a weatherly and alsop opening partnership for us. Think the team will be carbs, alsop, smith, Vince, Dawson, wheater, ervine, mclaren, topley, Edwards, tomlinson
