So where are all the cricket regulars? Personally I think it's a bit daft picking Joyce, almost like Walcott in the World Cup. Will he be able to handle the Aussies on his Test debut? I'd have gone for Key.
I would have gone Shah. But that's just me. Joyce does seem like the moer bizarre of the choices, but then...hmmm. WHO KNOWS.
I think Shah is unlucky but I think Joyce is as good a batsman as Shah and can bat in a number of positions.
I think he's been unlucky with injuries otherwise we'd have seen more of him for England in one-day Cricket.
Joyce is potentially a very good choice, but it remains to be seen how he'll handle it.
