On this week's Cricket Writers on TV podcast, the panel look at Steven Finn's selection as Chris Woakes' replacement in England's Champions Trophy squad.

Dean Wilson, of the Daily Mirror, the Daily Mail's Paul Newman and Lizzy Ammon, of The Times, joined Paul Allott to delve behind the best headlines in the Sunday newspapers, including whether England have made the right pick in Finn.

Newman says he sees Finn coming into the team straight away for the game against New Zealand at Cardiff, over an out-of-form David Willey and with Adil Rashid likely sitting out again, a decision that has 'angered' Wilson, with him believing it shows a lack of faith in the legspinner.

Also discussed, the calm-under-pressure captaincy of Eoin Morgan, Jake Ball's struggles in England's opening game, the threat of the IPL to England's Test cricketers, and whether attempts should be made to even the playing field between bat and ball in ODI cricket.
