Jos Buttler is to the red ball as water is to oil, PPCC

Hales could be fun.

I am looking forward to seeing Alzarri Joseph bowl on more helpful pitches too.

He's hardly had success there has he?

He's taken 43 wickets at 38.44 which isnt great, and those figures are flattered by the series England won!

He did get a world record in Australia though, most runs conceded from 1 over in a Test...

Yes 87 wickets against Aus 43 in OZ would have thought was okay.

Maybe a little harsh to judge Anderson's Aus record. Did he play in both whitewashes where our batting didn't give the bowlers much to work with?

We might do yes..I remember a 3 day game at edgebaston when the first ball of the match went miles over the keeper and it was over before lunch on day 3 I think

Worst thing England can do is be complacent...from what I can see at least 2 places in the team are up for grabs
Saw that one remember seeing Curtly Ambroses face after that first ball

Stoneman in.mason crane in

If buzz is right and stoneman is a better player of the short stuff it's a big chance to get on the oz tour

Don't know much about crane but a good series to start in

hope stoneman can cement his place,

isnt crane the chap who was the first overseas for NSW last winter? this must be a sign hes on the plane to aus? although guessing what our selectors will do is never simple!

Stoneman seems to have the technical skill - just hope he proves to have the mental temperament too!  :D

If they are hoping to look at Stoneman, Crane and get Woakes some match time, they may need to rest Ali and one of the seamers?
I am assuming they will play Malan at 5 to give him a decent run, in which case they can't move Bairstow up to 5 and free up a space for Crane.

Therefore I suspect they will play:

Cook
Stoneman
Westley
Root
Malan
Stokes
Bairstow
Woakes
Broad/TRJ
Anderson/TRJ
Crane

As much as I love watching Ali, we have Root, Westley and Malan who can all bowl spin. So if you are going to take a look at Crane in an International then no point in playing Ali as well. Plus we can't play Malan, Crane and Ali unless we only play 3 seamers!

Pete you have just dropped our in form, player of the series winning spinner batsman for a colt.

Crane won't play, they are just having a look at him.

I suspect the intention is for Crane to "get used" to being a squad member, with a view to maybe making his debut in the Lords game if we are 2-0 clear. Its an odd selection - harsh as hell on Rashid - but the selectors seem to have seen something in him they like.

Crane will play instead of Malan, If he plays. But probably not likely that he will.

Surprised he's jumped ahead of Rashid.
