Greg Blewett has named the five unluckiest players to miss the 2019 Ashes squad.

Only so many cricketers could be squeezed into what was a squad of 17 for the series, and that meant a few more unlucky to miss.

It included the likes of Jon Holland, who missed the squad as a second spinner in favour of an extra quick, as well as the two batsmen Blewie believed were stiff to miss out.

"There's no back-up spinner in the squad," he said.

"If I was the Australian selectors I'd probably suggest that Jon Holland hangs around in England, plays league cricket or something."
