Q: How do selectors reconcile their choices in relation to new players and "fill ins". I can understand sticking with the likes of Peitersen or Cook who may get out of form, but what of bit players like Morgan who are not recognized as "super" bats and don't bowl. Surly this is the place to blood inform players like Arul Suppiah who offer everything Morgan has and a lot more?

A: The selectors will pick the best players for the team at any given time. Think describing Eoin Morgan as a 'bit player' is rather disrespectful!
