Ali - cant bat, turns one in every 10 - complete waste of time
Butler to keep wicket, Bairstow gone
Anderson is now 37, if there Is no cloud cover, he can go as well
Denley may just sneak in, looked ok bowling, decent back up
Broad - if he fancies it, great, if not, then he is just up and down

Archer & Stone both in

I hope Roy has a go today. If he can score runs quickly, it will put them on the defensive and we should be able to bat the day out
Broad has learned a few extra skills. I wouldn't ditch him just yet.

Hoping we can see the day thru.......reckon Aus could have had another 5/6 overs at us last
night at least...once went past 330 or so England were never gonna chase...well fuckin shouldn't...
Hoping they're not still in one day mode.... :lol:

Lyons a Good Bowler no doubt...but don't waste a new ball on him,fire the thing down,New Batsman,
under pressure, dodgy light maybe...long as you get away with it,15 quick overs bet they'd have
nicked a wicket..

Got us at 13/8 to bat thru...bit Skinny,but like having a fun bet....hopefully odds will shorten as day
goes on ...see how it goes and cash out...

Foakes should be keeping wicket in tests. Bairstow should be batting at 5, and Buttler shouldn't even be in the squad.
Archer, assuming he's fit, should replace Anderson.
Moeen has the form of a number 11 with the bat, and his bowling just isn't good enough to make up for it.
I'd stick with the top 3, but Denly looks unconvincing.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

I'd go with form and on that, Bairstow shouldn't be batting on Blackpool Sands in red-ball cricket.

And stick with the top 3 ?

Did you just see the one-day heave Roy got out to when trying to save a test match ? Certain players can do both disciplines. Roy isn't one of them.

I know Burns was out cheaply today but it was a cunt of a ball. All we've done is replace Cook with Burns. We still need a proper test opener.

Ridiculous shot.

Apart from Burns, the only two we have with the technique and temperament are Root and Stokes.

Stokes to open at Lord's ? I can think of worse. He doesn't or shouldn't be bowling an awful lot.

Denly out now. Lyon bowling like Ali should have done. All over just after by tea.

I'll go for a 3pm finish

I think he's glad to be away from playing with a cunt at the other end tbh.

Don't ask a Roy to do a man's job. He can bat in the middle order but we've already got 250 of them.
