England named a 16-man squad to face the Black Caps in two Tests in March, welcoming back Durham seamer Mark Wood and calling up Lancashire batsman Liam Livingstone for the first time.

Ballance, Jake Ball and Tom Curran have all been ditched from the squad that fell to a 4-0 defeat in the Magellan Ashes series.

Seems theyíre happy to let the Test team drift then... token changes replacing three players who barely featured. Thereís unlikely to be a major overhaul until we start losing major series at home.

Yeah, seen that film before. Domestic comps here also tend to be won by the team with the most blokes not in but near the Test side....good enough to dominate at the lower level, but not so good (or in favor with themwotmatter) as to be unavailable thru National duties much.
