Big loss for us as he is clearly our number 1. Maybe Jacks to come in not sure if his bowling is good enough thou.

Hope Leach is fit for the winter, to overcome the illness and conditions he has had throughout his career  is remarkable in itself.

He has also flourished after the change of captaincy
A real shame

I like Dawson as the replacement but I can't see the current management doing that. Suspect it will be Rehan, Livi or Jacks.

Gutting for him, heard a state that under Stokes and McCullum he has bowled 1000 more deliveries than the next bowler so really have confidence in him which under Root you always felt he didnt rate or trust him and he has been decent for the last 12 months. Big hole to fill now for England especially if pitches will be like Lords this week that was really flat and only Wood as a genuine quick

gutted for leach, worse still is that i dont see an option who is 100% ready for an ashes series. Root is part time, rehan is very raw and may be too early in his career, livi and jacks i dont think are up to that level as bowlers.

best option we have is Mo Ali again, but i think hes lost interest in playing for england

The only sensible option is to bring Moeen back for the series. Anything else is silly

What if Sophie Eccleston is the next best spinner in the country who can also bat... 😯😯😯

BBC reporting Mo considering unretiring himself so they must have asked him.

Taken from Twitter:

Moeen Ali is seriously considering an approach from the England management to return to the Test squad for the Ashes campaign, he has confirmed to The Cricketer.

I am about 5050 on this. I suspect. Moeen might well say no. He doesn't have the number overs under the belt to do this.

The old school approach would be to pick Liam Dawson.

We may see a Sam Curran type approach, can bat and offers a point of difference with his left arm angle. But he also hasn't played any red ball cricket for ages, so doesn't have the right number of overs under the belt.

Who knows.

The problem is not just the spinner, Stokes clearly is not fit so we need 4 seamers plus a spinner or not play a spinner at all.

I cannot see stokes doing the 4th role.

I absolutely disagree with Foakes being dropped but we can now see how big an issue our front line spinner being injured it.

If Mo says yes that may be the best option due to his ability to bat just as much as a bowling role.

Leach and Crawley are the two players backed by Stokes who have turned out very modest records under his captaincy. A front line spinner averaging  38 under the current captain who bats 11 and is an weak fielder wouldn't on be a huge loss.  But it reflects how bare the cupboard currently is.

Moeen coming back for one series would be the best option at this point
