Cricket: England A in an awkward situation
Thursday 07 December 1995
However, the weather-affected second "Test" in Rawalpindi has left a clutch of other players demanding another opportunity in Peshawar to show what they can do. Batting places, in particular, will be at a premium with Jason Pooley and Anthony McGrath both having had just one innings each so far in the "Test" series.
The all-rounders Ronnie Irani and Craig White have also had little opportunity with either bat or ball - and with the captain, Nasser Hassain sure to play, there is pressure on the selectors to leave out either Jason Gallian or Nick Knight in an effort to find room for others.
On the bowling side, Warwickshire's Tim Munton will definitely sit on the sidelines in Peshawar, whatever the pitch conditions there, which will give the Sussex fast bowler Ed Giddins another deserved opportunity.
