Hameed and Jennings both good players of spin they've got to be in with a shout of making the Pakistan tour....
And players in form should be picked. Clearly they have both had good seasons.
I can't say Hameed has ever filled me with confidence in the past. Whenever he's played for England he's looked scared/out of place when in the middle imo, but maybe now he's a little older he's worth another go and if you're doing the business in county cricket you should get picked.
I wouldn't write off Sibley either. He had a good season for Warwickshire. Not spectacular but good. 54 and 77 in his last match and an average of 42.5 over 25 innings.
Edit - just realised he's included in that second list of players!

Me and my big stupid mouth again. Fantastic work by Rizwan to whip off the bails though. Something I wasn’t aware of is it’s only classed as a stumping if the ball goes behind the stumps otherwise it’s called a run out. Just goes to show what great work and presence of mind it was from Rizwan to take the ball from shoulder height from in front of the stumps.

A better all round t20 performance on the sub continent you will not see. That was an absolute drubbing. What a great series it’s been, played in a terrific spirit and fair play to the Pakistani fans for showing great appreciation to the England team for touring, they won’t forget it. Well in lads👏🏻
Woakes bowled superbly. The only decision for the World Cup is him or Jordan or Curran. Of course they can all play and with Afghanistan first we may not go full strength
I'd pick Woakes ahead of both of those two. Curran has age on his side. I can see why getting experience under his belt is a good idea for England's future, but I can't say I'm convinced by him yet.
I guess the difference is Woakes can open the bowling and he does that well. However, if you’ve got Wood and Topley doing that I’m not sure where Woakes fits? I’d lean towards Curran myself. All 3 can hold a bat so don’t think that comes into it. Got to look at the Aussie wickets as well, who’s going to be the better bowler in their pitches? Again I’d be inclined to go Curran but it all hangs on the fitness of Wood I think
