Hales at 5 and no Dawson if i was picking the team.
I like JB/Stokes/Ali coming in one place lower than they could... do we really need 4 seamers and 3 spinners?

Who's the 3rd spinner?

Probably safe with an extra bowler also with Anderson just fit again and Wood never fit for long.

Whilst I'm looking forward to the series, is anyone still a bit underwhelmed by the team we're putting out?

Whoever it was asking when Dawson's next Test would be following his debut in India, the answer is Thursday 6th July 2017 ;) :D

I wonder if the order will be:

Cook
Jennings
Ballance
Root
Ali
Stokes
Bairstow
Dawson
Broad
Wood
Anderson

Mo had a good series at 5 against India but the question is whether they trust him at 5 in England, probably deserves a go there tbh.

I have a horrible feeling Wood will go the way of Simon Jones.

But surely you are either fit to play your full part in 5 days of a test match or you aren't?

You can't select a side around whether someone might or might not pull up after 1 or 20 overs!

6 bowlers (7 if you incl Root) is just crazy - especially when you consider the weakness of this England team is the batting

I cant see it myself, i cant see Ali has done enough there. Also would mean Stokes 6 and Bairstow 7, if JB bats at 7 the 6 in front of him have to be pretty decent

I think anyone would struggle to disagree with that, he does balance the side out nicely

i cant help but feel TRJ would have been a better pick than dawson, he can bat a bit too

I think once you start including part timers you're always going to look bowling heavy.Root has 30 1st class wicket, Jennings has 18 in far less games, do we count his as a 5th seamer.

I agree we look bowler heavy on paper, but the strength of those bowlers with the bat allows us that luxury.
