Certainly gives me hope we'll close the gap on other countries when it comes to spin bowling.

They won't all come through, but I think there are better systems in place to support the young players now, both at County and national level.

And what's really exciting is that we're not yet seeing the product of the national spin clinics yet. There are a couple of young spinners at Hampshire who are part of this 'squad' and one of them, Chris Morgan, I reckon will be better than Liam Dawson in due course.

Yeah, of course. I wasn't being entirely serious there. Normally you get 1 who makes it international cricket, maybe a couple who play a bit for England but fall away, a few solid county players and then a couple who just don't make it.

England put NZ in & they're 323 for 7.

Dawson the pick with 4/70.

England 278 for 5 with Smith making a ton.

The spinners Dawson and Beer have fairly ripped through New Zealand, preventing them from chasing a mediocre total

Westley again fails to go on and make a score. I wonder what his average is for this series because every score card I've seen has him struggling.

42.5 in the ODIs so far, top score of 42*. Struggled in the 'Tests' though, only averaging 14

Tie in the end wasn't it? Good effort from our bowlers really given where we were in the game.

Good effort, I beg to differ with over 50 needed for the last two wickets England should have won the game comforably. Despite the spinners taking the first eight wickets it wasn't until the last over that a seamer managed to take a wicket for England! Not good enouh.

Well done to Will who capped an impressive ODI debut with 3-35 off his 10 overs and to Ben on scoring a valuable 36 down the order.

Of this eleven only Dawson, Harris, Redfern, Riazuddin will be able to play next summer for U19s.

I'll admit that I only saw the scorecard after the first few overs of the New Zealand reply and we looked in a very precarious position then.

Dawson and Harris at least will probably be playing first team cricket for their counties next summer, but let's hope they're not left in limbo by England before they are ready for the Performance Squad.

Lucky for them, two games where England were well on top were rained off

What I thought was a bit sad was that the squad was announced before the players were told they were in it! Doesn't strike me as very professional.

Of the seamers only Harris and Riazuddin have any first team experience. The batting looks very strong (Cobb, Taylor, Northeast, Redfern and Mickleburgh). The spin department with Dawson and Borthwick looks strong. The keeping department with Poynton and Wheater looks good too. Buck, Burke, Sheikh, Stokes and Wood are the only players without 1XI experience. Disappointed not to see any Sussex players named though.
