Android : Sam McNally Cricket365 Even if he doesn't play a single game, working with Brendon McCullum and Eoin Morgan at the IPL will be of far more value to Banton right now than trying to scratch out county runs off some 75mph dobber in early season conditions.

TweetDeck : MediumPaceDobbler Yeah. I hate the obsession of always looking at everything through the prism of the next Ashes, even when it's miles away; yet even on those terms, there is absolutely no reason why England can't go to Australia next year with Root, Stokes, Pope at 4-6. Why muck about with it?

TweetDeck : Nick Toovey It was already a mental position even before I twigged the McCullum and Morgan connections. If he doesn't play a single game, going to the IPL will be better for his development than freezing his nads off trying to scratch out some early-season Champo runs.

TweetDeck : English T20 gun Tom Banton should think about his future and not spend two months of a T20 World Cup year playing T20 alongside *checks notes* Eoin Morgan.

TweetDeck : Sam McNally Cricket365 It's *terrible* advice. Even if England do move Pope to three this summer Banton is nowhere near the Test team. He does, though, have every chance of making the T20 World Cup. The IPL is far, far more useful to him than trying to scratch out some Champo runs in April and May.

TweetDeck : Matthew Bowden Ashley Connick Yep. Every chance he plays Test cricket at some point. But jeopardising his T20 World Cup chances to chase a hopeless dream of playing Test cricket *this year* would be absolute madness for him and England. There is no part of Vaughan's plan that makes any sense.
