Gabriel looks like he should be a heavyweight boxer not a rapid fast bowler...#shoulders

if that means Billings bats top 3 great.

let's give him a chance

I do think YJB will be in our one day side going forward as well, yes it's a tight fit to get everyone in but he's quality.
Only way Bairstow gets a go is if Morgan is sacked and dropped. Hales will cone back in at the top when fit.

Poor batting by both Roy and Root. Staying back on low pitch to a geezer bowler missiles

no that's not the only way at all. another way is Hales is dropped and Billings takes his place.

another way is Joe Root continues in one day cricket but dumps T20 and bowls a few overs of spin as well as bat. You could ask the question could Root do Ali or rashid's job in our strongest team. Will Ali or Rashid make any significant contribution with the bat?

Morgan will play in the ICC trophy, after that he might well make way for Root to do both jobs and not play T20 cricket.

so there's different way to skin the cat....Felix   :)

Root's 26, why'd he ditch t20 cricket? I don't see why Root(with a brittle back) should be forced to bowl more. His batting is far too important for him to be tasked with bowling some flithy off breaks. Bairstow might offer more than Ali with the bat but Ali's bowling gets him a gig. Unless Bairstow unveils some mean off breaks I don't see him displacing Ali
