A Rossington must be in your list as a wicketkeeper. Wakely, Clark, Richardson, and Bancroft are capable of giving a good start to their team. Cobb and Holder make the middle order look strong and can be dangerous with the bat as well as the ball. Rushworth and Weighell are capable of taking early wickets. The team is worth betting on
