Why are people not picking Broad? Are 400 test wickets not enough?

The team for the first test will be

Cook
Stoneman
Vince (not my pick, will be interesting to see if Malan gets a go at 3 in the warm up games)
Root
Malan (I would have him at 3 and bairstow at 5
Stokes
Bairstow (I would have Livingston at 7 for now)
Moeen
Woakes
Broad
Anderson

I think Buzz has it right with the above..... unfortunately Vince will get another go (and i will put money on he nicks off to 1st slip  :() so the only real change will be Stokes  coming in.

I would also love to see Malan at 3, Bairstow at 5 and Livingstone given a go at 7.

Side note - does a separate Red Ball thread need starting?

Anyone know why Crane has only bowler one over here when Ali has sent down a heap. Even Malian and Lovingston have bowled more.

Crane's winter would have been far better spent touring with the Lion's and getting through as many overs as possible

thing is, when he played for the Lions he didn't really bowl either - on turning decks.

Cricinfo saying he had a back spasm, possibly why he only bowled the one over.

Can't imagine any other reason he would only bowl 1 over.

Crane should have spent another winter playing club/first class cricket in Aus. Working with McGill or Oh Shane.
