250 runs and 25 wickets in a series has happened nine times in test history.

Moeen is the only one to do it in a 4 test series. :*)

Brilliant stuff from Mo and thrilling batting.

We still need to sort the batting out but he can play with freedom at number 8 and it suits him.

Not sure what we will do now batting wise but that's a good win against a good side.

Well played England and well played mo. Deserved man of the series.

Interesting that game was sorobably set up in the 1st innings by our number 7, who wants to bat higher. And the. Driven home by our number 8 in innings to, who wants to bat higher........


Anyway, is jennings done?
Is malan good enough?
Westley being the better of the 3 got himself a longer stay?
Will ballance return?
Does hameeds 71 not out from 214 balls mean he's back in form?
Does Hales 218 in division 2 matter at all?
 Batting needs answers

Does woakes come back in for trj? Or do we use the 4 to rotate and rest plays to keep them fresh?

Our bowling looks better. Settled to me, despite wus having apparently 8 batsman.

I feel Hashim Amla's career is coming to an end. I suspect this is the last year we'll watch him play. Faf is the only man standing from the Smith era.

Think Westley's appearance at the crease more than his actual performance will get him more chances, he seemed to take to it very well, albeit with some issues with the ball outside off stump.

I don't see how Jennings can stay, you can't carry passengers in Oz and he was very poor. He relies on too much luck to get any resemblance of runs, having been dropped on his way to 100 in India and a couple of times in this series.

Malan I think was always a short term stop gap until Ballance was fit enough to come back at 5, think England wanted a look at him as they are looking for an extra batsman for the Ashes tour and he's unfortunately not stepped up to the grade.

As before it leaves a shootout between Hammed & Stoneman to open with Cook as the only selection dilemma Wngland have in my opinion. Woakes will replace TRJ (quicker/better bowler) but I can see Anderson missing some games in Oz. What a tail that would give England! Mo 8, Woakes 9, TRJ 10, Broad 11....
