. Woakes like Anderson and Broad are all pitch it up and shape it away.

F*ck me, I wish Broad and Jimmy would pitch it up more instead of this Ďback of a length Ď sh*t. They might be a bit more effective. I shall be heckling tomorrow if they canít hit a length!!!😡

Wood at times has been genuinely quick, but over 5 days I think most of the forum is right, there's not much between wood and woakes pace wise. On a flat deck like the matches I watched last time Pakistan were over, yes our bowling looked ordinary..

Michael Vaughan seems to want wood on just for a change, to have something to talk about.

Short of having a left armer like Wiley or topley when fit, or Carter if he progresses we don't have a lot of choice

I think myself Leach is a good bet as he is left arm a d seems pretty good, but we are searching for some variety...we might not need it in the next month but we will when we are away.

The selectors have a hard job sometimes,you can't pick someone just because they have a different bowling action, they have got to be good enough.

Woakes for me out of the two, Wood does not offer enough of a difference.

This is the right answer, nothing to do with pace or what hand they bowl with. All three excellent bowlers, all three swing/seam merchants who mainly try and take it away and bring the odd one back in - realistically we only want two of those at most. On the other hand, Wood's test record is underwhelming at best!

As I said before I wouldn't have Wood in the squad in the 1st place.

Cheers guys

I regularly face the 1st team in the nets to be fair, and although it is more difficult, i think the main reason is the lack of sight screen in the nets and picking the ball up late. And we probably have the best bowling attack in the league. Hence my apprehension.

But yes, clear mind. See ball, hit ball, hopefully score a few runs!

Wood bowls different lengths and has a different shape to has bowling. Woakes like Anderson and Broad are all pitch it up and shape it away.

How so, he's a right arm fast medium bowler, the only difference is his wierd run up.
