England's Test series against Pakistan starts in just over three weeks.After a chastening winter in Australia and New Zealand, questions about who should be in the side remain unanswered.With the majority of the England players missing the start of the season, have any of their rivals stood up during the first three rounds of the County Championship and shouted "pick me"[/img]

Those with concerns about England's batting line-up may want to look away now...

None.While early-season conditions have favoured the seam bowlers, few batsmen made significant contributions.Only three Englishman have scored centuries in Division One this season, but Hampshire's Sam Northeast now has a broken finger, Somerset's James Hildreth is 33 years old and Surrey's Ollie Pope, 20, has played only eight first-class games.From the selectors' point of view, the cupboard is looking worryingly bare.
