“The second game will be a List-A game, so it’s basically the 11 you choose. I’d like to think that it’s going to be close to what we are looking to play in the first game [vs England].”
On keeping everyone happy, Boucher said: “It’s not new to us where we’ve had big squads of even 19. I think communication is key and the players need to understand that out of your squad, only 11 ca go onto the park.
“In the short period of time that we’ve got before the first ODI we need to look after those 11 players as we get close to the starting game, so we’ll see what we can do to try to accommodate everyone. The conversations will be had and hopefully everyone gets an opportunity to put their case forward.”
