Come in agent War­ney, and bal­ance the num­bers

The Cricket Paper - - NEWS & VIEWS -

WHILE ac­knowl­edg­ing that it’s been slim pick­ings for the Eng­land Test se­lec­tors, the Ashes squad an­nounce­ment did make me think that they may have fallen for one old trick, pos­si­bly rein­vented by our Aussie friends.

Aussie agent abroad Shane Warne has been a lead­ing ad­vo­cate of Hamp­shire spin­ner Ma­son Crane, and was the first to catch my ear when it came to the po­ten­tial res­ur­rec­tion of Ageas Bowl cap­tain James Vince.

Per­haps I’m be­ing cyn­i­cal and that Shane was merely a mouth­piece for his old mates at Hamp­shire.

What­ever, the Aussies may think that po­ten­tially fac­ing both Vince and Bal­lance at Ade­laide more than com­pen­sates for their own re­turn of Glenn Maxwell.
