Hesson and captain Brendon McCullum (when he arrives in
England from the Indian Premier League) is whether Martin
Guptill or Hamish Rutherford will open with Tom Latham in the

Kevin Pietersen has dominated the front and back pages of
Britain's newspapers, many of which are sympathising with the
controversial batsman whose England comeback bid has been
thwarted by new cricket director Andrew Strauss.
