It doesn't seem to be because of his injury either.
I thought they might at least blame the injury, but 'he has been short of runs' sounds quite final.
I feel kind of sorry for him.
in my current assault on stick cricket
has looked very good too.
Still, Read deserves a go and some competition ahead of the Ashes should be a good thing.
His keeping did look pretty much faultless from what I saw recently.
But yeah. Give a new guy a chance, why not.
he's been playing crap AND he's injured
they couldn't really not drop him
