    Firstly I think the ECB owe the West Indies a great deal - I don't think if the boot was on the other foot that we would be touring over there.

    I hope they don't forget how they have helped them out

    The side are likely to be seriously under cooked - I would have had a full scale game within the squad (made possible by the fact that there is no county cricket)

    I would have a "Probables" v "Posibles" game - here are my sides:

    Probables - - Possibles
    Sibley - - Roy
    Burns - - Crawley
    Denly - - Jennings
    Root - - Lawrence
    Stokes - - Bairstow
    Pope - - Foakes
    Butler - - Curran S
    Archer - - Ali
    Broad - - Woakes
    Anderson - - Wood
    Leach - - Stone

    England have named Dom Bess as their spinner in a 13-man squad for the first Test against West Indies, which begins on Wednesday.

    Off-spinner Bess is chosen ahead of Jack Leach and Moeen Ali, who is not among the list of nine reserves.

    Rory Burns, Dom Sibley, Zak Crawley and Joe Denly will be the top four in the absence of Joe Root, who misses out for the birth of his second child.

    Ben Stokes will stand in as captain for Root in Southampton.
