How does Cook not get in? Averages over 50 with in India with 5 tons and hasn't he scored more runs there than any non Indian?

yeah well ten thousand test runs against the best opposition possible he's not getting in the side

that's how it goes

the real tragedy with these teams in where on earth is chris woakes?

Renshaw
Root
Smith (c)
Handscomb
Bairstow (w/k)
Stokes
Maxwell
Starc
Cummins
O'Keefe
Hazlewood

4 seamers, a pair of all rounders(Stokes and Maxwell) and an end blocking spinner. Right/left batting opening partnership.


Sheffield collegiate youngsters opening the batting!! That would have been nice to see for real on the international stage.

Interesting that Australia batsmen are being praised for their 'plans'. Here are the batting averages for the England and Australia batsmen from their respective India tours.

Root 491 @ 49.10
Ali 381 @ 42.33
Cook @ 36.90
Bairstow 352 @ 44
Stokes 345 @ 38.33
Hameed 219 @ 43.80
Jennings 167 @ 41.75
Buttler 154 @ 38.5

Smith 499 @ 71.28
Renshaw 232 @ 29
Handscomb 198 @ 28.28
Wade 196 @ 32.66
Warner 193 @ 24.12
Maxwell 159 @ 39.75
S Marsh 151 @ 18.87

Allowing for the fact that England played one game more, it simply highlights the difference Lyon and O'Keefe made to their team. As the old adage goes, batsmen set up matches, but bowlers win them.

Also, Warner is toot outside Australia and South Africa.

I think the pitches were similar across both series. Australia's bowling was fantastic, England's derisory.

This. Comparing those two sets of averages....its apples and oranges. Youd need to look at the oppositions batting averages to have anything even remotely comparable.

I don't think you can be that sure - the bowling really makes the difference and Australia are light years ahead of where England were.

Warner needs to go back and work on technique....he's been worked out at the top and needs to get his confidence back.  He is quality but not up to pace at the moment

Quite a funny statement this one... Like many before him he has had an average series in tough conditions. Far from being worked out... How many more series in his career will he play in India... HARDLY CAREER ENDING. He will be back smashing top class attacks around the park in no time
