England Name Their Test Squad, Sandpaper, de Villiers Retires (AGAIN), and Our World Test Championship XI

On this episode of The Cricket Podcast the boys discuss the big news from cricket over the last week. England name their Test Squad to face New Zealand. The big omission is Jofra Archer, who is struggling again with his mystery elbow injury. How will England structure their XI, and will their be room for Ollie Robinson?

In other news, Cameron Bancroft has reignited the sandpaper furore, by saying that the bowlers knew. Did anyone think they didn't know? Why is this so funny? 

AB de Villiers has also retired from international cricket again. Who saw that coming?

Finally, the boys name their World Test Championship XI, featuring a player from every nation, and absolutely no structure whatsoever. Which big names missed out, and let us know who you'd have chosen...
