Australia recovered from 28-3 to finish day 1 on a remarkable 384-4. Joe Burns 174* and Travis Head 161. Sri Lanka faded badly and dropped 4 straightforward catches.

Does this mean Burns & Head are all but certain to be in the Ashes side now?

If Marcus Harris tons up before the end of the series it could be difficult to find a spot in the side for Mr Warner.

Was always going to be someone who cememted their Ashes spot with a big score on a road against a terrible attack, be happy to see Head picked, not seen enough of Burns to know if he's any threat to us or not.

Pretty certain Khawaja won't be in the XI for the first ashes test. The bans to Smith and Warner was an opportunity to come out of their shadows yet these 6 tests he's been a passenger.

Always thought Burns was a little hard done by getting dropped after two poor tests in Sri Lanka. He scores heavily despite playing the majority of his matches at the bowler friendly Gabba. Seems like a decent chap as well.

I dont think Burns and Head can be labelled as ashes saviours quite yet. Several drops throughout the day on a flat pitch vrs bowlers that would be fortunate to bowl 2nd change for Leicestershire

Not quite preparation for Anderson & Broad with the shiny Duke on a green one

If I were you guys Id be more concerned with which England team is going to turn up for the Ashes. Hopefully not the team playing in the West Indies at the moment 🍑🍆

We'll turn up for the Ashes dont worry about that. There will only be one team being dismissed for double figures in that series.

But enjoy these wins against the Sri Lankan reserves, first you've had since your leadership group introduced sandpaper to a cricket ball in a Test Match

To be fair, at least then they were at home and full strength.

No its not, they only have 4 of the same players from the 1st Test vrs England I think and a whole different seam attack from the 1st of this series. Would have expected Sri Lanka to bat better though, no excuse for that

Oh we will enjoy these wins dont worry about that. And you Enjoy your losses against the 8th ranked test team. 😜 keep telling yourself how great this England team is. Australia will be more than prepared for the Ashes.

Karunaratne quite possibly saved by the extra neck protection he had on.

Kurtis Patterson reached his maiden Test hundred and has really enjoyed the visitors bowling with 3 centuries in 4 innings.

I know this England team is far from great dont worry about that, im a realist! But certainly good enough to beat Australia in England.

 I hope its close because ive got tickets to 4th and 5th Tests and would like the series to still be live.

But lets remember how Australia played the moving ball last time. With a full strength settled side. Im calling 4-1 England, ill give you Lords because its normally a shirtfront and you've got the better spinner

Bang on the neck protection, could have been terrible if he wasnt wearing it. Apparently he is all good in hospital, just being checked for concussion 🙂 was batting really well aswell

I hope he plays in the Ashes to see how he goes. Just read a story on him where he says he enjoys playing the moving ball.
