The panel discuss the inclusion of James Taylor in England's squad for the second Test against South Africa.
James Taylor takes the place of Ravi Bopara for the Test match at Headingley after Bopara was made unavailable for selection due to personal reasons.
Taylor, 22, is uncapped at Test level although the diminutive right-hander received his first England cap in 2011 in a one day international against Ireland.
Taylor scored his maiden first-class century for Notts against Sussex this week and has jumped ahead of Eoin Morgan and Jonny Bairstow in the battle for the number six spot.
"That has come as a surprise to me, I did not know Ravi Bopara had any problems and I was convinced that they would give him this match and the rest of the series to prove that he is the man for No. 6," said Paul Newman of the Daily Mail on Cricket Writers on TV.
"I am not sure what has gone on there and I hope it is nothing serious.
"If they have had to go somewhere else then I am pleased that it is with Taylor. I saw him get a good century for the Lions against the West Indies at Northampton and I am glad he has got his chance. It seems to have been a long time coming for James Taylor because his first class average has not been the best, but he did get another century on Saturday and I am pleased they have gone down that path.
The Times man Richard Hobson is also pleased that England have gone with Taylor and says he has worked hard to get back into contention.
"Taylor is an interesting choice; he will be the fifth No. 6 that England have tried out in ten Tests," explained Taylor.
"He led the Lions over the winter - he was the bright star last season but things did not quite work for him over the winter, Eoin Morgan and Jonny Bairstow were ahead of him of him but now he has leapt back over them. I know the concern was that he had not played a lot of first division cricket but I think his form has approved over the course of the summer. I think potentially he is a long term player for England."
Guardian man Mike Selvey does have one concern over Taylor though and hopes that the likes of Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander don't take advantage of it.
"I think he is an excellent young player but the one caveat I have about him is a technical one. He seems to get very obsessed by the leg side from quite a long way over. That can be exploited by someone who can hold the ball up a bit - someone like Steyn for example. If Taylor goes across the line then he is a goner."
