Moeen and Curran front line bats ?? Jesus Christ we over rate lower order hitters

Curran comes with the caveat I mentioned.

Ali bats at 3 in FC cricket with 20 first class hundreds and has test hundreds for England batting at 4 and 5. His record for England is rather better than a considerable number of players picked as specialist batsman despite having come in at 8 more than another position.  Not bat for a lower order hitter

Sorry but where has this obsession of 6 bowlers come from? 5 bowlers is generally a luxury if you have good all rounder(we do in Stokes). Pick the best 4 bowlers plus Stokes. None of this nonsense of various bits and pieces "all rounders"
Pretty much fully on board with this, other than in very unusual circumstances 5 bowlers is plenty, 6 just results in one or two not bowling any overs - as in SL. All very well saying we have loads of all-rounders but we don't really, we have one and a load of bowlers who bat well.

If we really wanted to play 6 bowlers however, the openers obviously stay... So the man to miss out would logically be Bairstow, who was last in. Don't hear many calling for that!

Bats / Re: SS 7star vs B3 custom

Get a B3. End of discussion. SS bats perform as good as anything, but my personal experience is alot of them pick up like turd because of their skinny handles and low middles. And the shapes are all generic and boring. They also have skinny shoulders which causes them to break. I have had a pro players SS and it was great but only lasted a season and a bit. And it had already been repaired twice before I owned it.

B3 on the other hand are class, the whole process from designing the bat to the finished product is top drawer. I spent 3 hours just talking over shapes with @Butterfingerz and I couldn't be happier with the finished products. Performance is up there with the best I've ever used.
