Collecting these names made me think how wide open this is. There are few convincing picks and so many dubious long shots. Sibley, Alsop Burns, Godleman, Browne, Brown, Clark, Clarke... There are a lot of opener possibles, but few middle order.

The forgotten men, Vince, Hales and Duckett.

Ian Bell?

Compo?

KP....?

It is quite impossible to make any meaningful choice at the moment. Only the obvious three can be selected with any confidence...right now you could pick the other four by throwing darts at the list !

I hope the next few matches allow one or two players to make a serious claim...
