Jadeja should of been in the last match he has to come in, the problem India have is despite being number 1 in the world their top order has no experience of English conditions. Kholi is by far the best bat on show on either side and can cope thru sheer skill

I read a stat India have changed their team 25 consecutive matches or something, so more changes now won't really matter.
wrong team as well with leaving the seamer out

Far as I know with day 1 washed out they could still of named the extra seamer at start of day 2-correct me if I'm wrong.

They have nothing to lose by giving Pant a game now and hope it's sunny at Trent bridge when they bat.

On a wider scale, the away team being awarded the toss argument becomes more relevant when an Asian team comes here.

They have to even it up for away sides I think. Same when we tour Sri Lanka in the winter.

Talking about who to drop to get Stokes back in. Closing arguments from the various lawyers are on Monday, so are we that sure he is going to be available?

If he is - no one has mentioned dropping Rashid.... he didn't bowl a ball in this test and if the conditions are the same at Trent Bridge then do we really need a spinner?

So is it true that Broad was back bowling at just under 90mph??
Also i like Rashid as a spinner! He will go for a few runs but leggirs always take wickets.
Who to drop? Curren and Woakes have both taken their opportunity! If conditions are the same as Lords then drop Rashid. Id we need a front line spinner then either SC or CW! Glad i'm not a selector!!!

Yeah when he changed ends and started taking wickets he was up at 88mph

He always seems to find a spell when it looks like hes favourite to be dropped!

I don't think Stokes will be named in the squad for the 3rd test

Yet when woakes does the same youd say

Doesnt really show much, bad India under the pump with an injured Kohli in perfect bowling conditions. Shouldnt be playing

Had a read through my posts Chris no mention of any of the above apart from perfect bowling conditions

If Stokes is available then Curran misses out for me.  Done nothing wrong by Stokes is the better player at this stage od their respective careers.  To be a top side you need to have the luxury of having enough options that you find yourself leaving out good players in good form.  Makes a change from recent times where it seems that we struggle to name an 11 so limited have been our options

23 of which he has batted at either 8 or 9 where we all know it's easy to score big runs.

If Stokes is available....lets not bank on it, but if he is, I think this is where rotation comes into play.  Rest one of the older guys for this game, the other for the fourth.  Curran is doing nicely enough, and should as far as possible be given the series to develop into international cricket - having originally worried that he might not be sharp enough for international cricket, his ability to move the ball both ways has proved sufficient, along with his left arm angle,  and the three games left this year, and six over the winter, are great times for him to bed into the squad.

Or maybe England pick a few more youngsters in the XI and then beat India..just to rub it in!

Not sure if India has anyone in their squad who can help reverse the tide. You know it is really really bad when Ashwin wins a poll to open the batting for India in the next test.
