Wood bowling in practice, but likely to be left out.  Hales has no chance, I'd say.

Wood has the same ankle problems that have dogged him before. He's not fit at the moment.

Hales.....if bairstow has a bad run he could get back up top.....but not from my armchair.

Sacrilege I know but Mooen Ali, is he that good in one day games for us.

I don't want to kill the party but..

He gives us six bowlers, and has played some destructive innings down the order. I'd say he's pretty safe because we don't need five seamers and Hales wouldn't necessarily score more/quicker at seven.

Yep think the 6 bowlers and long batting order is key for England, Moeen does a good job in his position. Dawson would probably be the closest competitor?

Probably so. Modern just has about more with the bat.

Stokes timing the ball so well here.

Morgan riding his luck with 2 dropped catches. Nz cant afford hat defending a small toral

Than Dawson or Hales?

If the former, please can I have whatever it is you're smoking; if the latter, then I agree.

I know you meant Moeen, but who does he have more with the bat over?

Any other 2nd spinner.
