Parnell is a very good bowler in England if there's swing and his brain is switched on.

Why exactly should Bairstow be an automatic selection? If he comes in at 5, that means Stokes and Buttler being wasted at 6 and 7. Bairstow's only realistic hope is Roy/Hales getting axed.

well because he is one of the best 5 batsmen in the Country. Butler and stokes are not wasted down there. everyone goes for it in today team to try to hit 400

it's not 2007 Felix.

Buttler has the 3 fastest 100s ever for England therefore he should be guaranteed a top 6 berth. Stokes is the crown jewel. He's guaranteed a slot in the top 5. Bairstow's list A record is poor so hardly knocking the door down. If we needed another opener Sam Hain averages 55 and has more hundreds thab Bairstow anyway.

And no side picks only batsmen. You need role players. Only Roy, Hales and Morgan don't bowl in this side. If you axed Ali/Rashid that's another option reduced.

Because Roy is not in form and Johny is

Buttler's a once in a generation player, tbh he's probably a bit low at 6!

@ppccopener , maybe Bairstow isn't the most popular player because he keeps having a moan in the media about not getting selected? I know I'd have been pretty unimpressed if I was an England player with the stuff he came out with when Billings got given the gloves Vs Ireland. In contrast, Moeen was pretty generous with praise for Rashid when dropped in the same games.

totally agree re butler, he is amazing to watch.

must admit must of missed the media with YJB moaning about not getting picked, hav'nt  seen anything of that.

it's a team game at the end of the day everyone has to fit into the ethic, I never had bairstow down as a tricky character thou-not in a million years.

but to get him into this team...im 100 per cent sure he should be in. who to leave out?  tricky......but this top level sport.

for me...Root bowls a bit, Ali misses out.

but if you take @Seniorplayer 's point and Roy is in no form at all...Root moves up to open, Bairstow slots in. Ali still plays in the side.

Surely you have Buttler in with the option of promotion when the situation is right though.

For sure. If we happen to be behind the rate-I cant see that myself the way we play, but say we are....can't think of a better player to come in with 20 overs to go.

Even butler needs a bit of time to see the ball.  probably the only non power hitter we have in the top 7 is Root.........but he has many other qualities

 The match is a day nighter its a Beautiful day for seeing the ball the pitch is  a belter for batting yet both Captains before the start of play said they would have bowled first shows how confident both sides are in there batting line ups  ie
You score 300 and we will get them
