How many chances has Karl Brown had in the Championship over the years? After 83 f-c matches he averages just under 27, and with just 2 centuries it is rightly time to look elsewhere.


No Karl Brown? Smacks a ton in the 2nds, surely deserves a place?


no Tom Bailey? Wasn't it was only Hameed who was reported as an injury concern?
