With the 50 over World Cup being 3 years away, there was a sense of experimentation with the England team as they lined up to face South Africa in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg.
No Ben Stokes, or Jos Buttler, the heroes of the World Cup Final winning team, who were being rested for the T20 series to come. No Liam Plunkett who was vital in restricting New Zealand, now deemed unnecessary as he won't be there at the next one. Debuts for players like Saqib Mahmood and Matt Parkinson.
With the World Cup so far away, now's the time to start blooding the next batch of players.
However with the T20 World Cup just a handful of months away. England captain Eoin Morgan has confirmed that there will be no experimentation with the starting XI when it comes to the 3 game series we're about to start.
The aim in South Africa is to start gaining momentum ahead of the World Cup. So knowing that we'll be starting our strongest XI available, who would you select?
Roy, Bairstow, Malan, Morgan, Stokes, Buttler, Moeen, T. Curran, Jordan, Rashid, Wood?
