Matthew Hoggard has been included in England's 12-man squad for the first Test of the summer against New Zealand.

The Yorkshire seamer is added the XI that was on duty during the back-to-back Test wins in New Zealand in March.

The selectors' job was made easier by an injury to Andrew Flintoff, while Owais Shah - who carried the drinks all winter - is again surplus to requirements.

Do you feel Shah, or perhaps even Mark Ramprakash, Ravi Bopara and Luke Wright - all of whom have been in prime form at the start of the summer - are unlucky not to have forced their way into the Test side? Or are the selectors correct to show faith in the players that served them well in New Zealand?
