Having watched finals day (different format i know) but clarke looked class and hes highly spoken of also, id have picked Clarke

that would mean (doubt it) 3 debuts at 1 2 3.

they'll be a toss up between curran and leach too i reckon

unless root shocks us all and drops broad

id quite like to see broad have a rest and leach play with 3 spinners, anderson, stokes and curran (left armer to produce rough)

Pleased to have got 15 of the squad right! Pope has a big future but is likely to carry the drinks which is why I wanted to see him on the Lions tours this winter.
Seeing as I chose 18 in my squad I was always going to be slightly wrong. Vince has done what was asked and scored more heavily than before and earned his recall, Bess I would have liked to have seen taken but he will tour with Lions, Porter was always a long shot but think it is when, rather than if, he gets a test cap over the next couple of years.

totally agree. I would of left Jennings behind and made a spot for another top order player. Bell...Clarke or Vince....Vince and Bell have been tried before and it means batting a number 3 as a number 2....I still would of done it.

Denly I think is a good choice, not exactly top order but we do need an alternative to Jennings.

Burns is the most deserving selection in recent memory, and a shot in the arm for the Championship after Roy was being touted

Mo will bat at 3 because it then allows us to play Leach and Curran, Broad or Anderson.

So it is a straight forward decision between Jennings and Denly.

Burns
Jennings/Denly
Mo
Root
Stokes
Butler
Bairstow
Curran
Rashid
Leach
Broad/Anderson

Just one change in batting order.  I would swap Buttler and Stokes but knowing England management we are likely to see Baristow bat at 5, Stokes at 6 and Buttler at 7.  We will also see either one of Curran/Rashid/Leach getting dropped to accommodate both Broad and Anderson.  I feel for Curran since he is most likely guy to get the chop for Broad, unless Root is going to act as the 3rd spinner.  Based on recent matches in Sri Lanka, more than one seamer seems to be a luxury.

How many folks on here think that both Anderson and Broad should have been rested for the series (especially the pitches are likely to be spinner friendly), so some of the less experienced seamers could get more match experience at international level?

That's the exact same team as me

Only thing is I had made a decision of Denly over Jennings (Jennings can't play) And Anderson to start, broad to come in for him when rested

Surprised Jennings in- must have been his hindered on debut and the fact it was in India no?

Oh just because i put their name is 1st doesn't mean anything really just that it's a choice between the 2.

Yes figured Denly was in maybe to open as well and smith on interview said Denly is in as a top order batter an an option to spin.

Like a lot of us on here I think I would start him and burns first test,the guy deserves a chance. And....it gives us possible 4 spinners in the side....

You got to think all matches will turn a lot. Or they could leave one out play 3 spinners and slot in stone for extra pace(or rest Anderson or broad to do that)

Not a bad call at all but England will be thinking if we play just 2 seamers what happens if one breaks down.

Yep
Sure that's  the deciding factor struggles against  the  moving ball but  scored 112 in Mumbai.

So the central contracts are out.


Glad to see Curran has been given a full one.


His buttler to, but a tad bizarre that Adil Rashid has got one to, do we reckon yorkshire new this before his extension? As technical they no dont have to pay him.


Tom Curran given an incremental one to cover the Odis/t20s.


No contract for Jennings, unsurprisingly, but shows England through gts and that if he doesnt perform is this tour hell be gone.

yes I think they are sticking with Jennings but unsure he will make it to be a regular player.

he could well get runs on this tour thou, he has in the past in sub continent, don't think that solves much thou if he does.

lets hope Burns is the real deal otherwise we will be back to square one  :)

Sri Lanka named their test squad, just the five spinners listed. They also named three seamers but I doubt they'll pick more than Lakmal. #sandpits
