I don't see why Bairstow has an grievances about being dropped tbh. Foakes is considerably a better gloveman, hence why Bairstow grabbed the gloves back off Buttler after his finger injury. Secondly Bairstow is averaging 30 with the bat in the last 2 years. Hardly the numbers of 'the two best batsman in the side'. Bairstow is currently firmly behind Buttler in the pecking order, forget about dislodging Foakes.

I don't see any sign of Stokes bowling workload being reduced! Maybe on these pitches and rightly so, but back in England he'll be queueing up to get the ball.

For me having Stokes at 6 provides the luxury genuine all rounder that many sides crave. It is also the position where we should see the best of him - taking the game to the opposition. That South Africa knock was one of the best I've seen. Please don't turn him into a boring accumulator because all our other 3s are rubbish!

Boring but in tests itís what is required from your top 3. Thatís the beauty of the formst, roles for all style of batsmen

Having played at the same club as alex i can safely say the league cricket is a higher standard. A couple of things happen - firstly you get less balls to hit and secondly you end up searching for runs, instead of letting it come to you. Relax on a Sunday and a bad ball comes along, look for it on Saturday and you either snatch at the shot or chase a ball that isnt there. Its self imposed pressure rather than mindset as such.

I can relate to this though in slightly different circumstances. I score freely batting first and able to score at run a ball or close to it but when chasing and when particularly the asking rate is 6 or higher, I try to really grab those runs instead of playing the ball on merit and end up with lot of mistimed shots, etc., eventually either getting out cheaply or struggling with poor strike rate. Just amazing how much mindset can change your game.

Not the thumbnails as they are the little pictures, go with the "hotlink for forums"

Thanks Buzz! I think I'll need to amend my post in the for sale section and put larger photos on.

Cheers

Keeping position...tbh I think that does Foakes' batting a bit of a disservice. In a team full of dashers, he is a natural accumulator.

On Stokes at 3 long term, the big issue for me would be three consecutive left handers.
