Crawley should definitely be dropped. Only scoring one run on debut is very poor indeed*





*this is what I reckon the brains trust of Smith and Taylor are thinking right now.

Don't think you can drop anyone established to bring in a horses for courses batsman in what should be good conditions, but wouldn't have any problem at all with Jennings in as a reserve bat for SL - he's proved he can get runs in Asian conditions. Of course, it would present an awkward situation if he got runs again... "Cheers Keaton, job well done mate. See you next winter for the India tour!"

SL are such a poor side at the moment that it could possibly give a false view on how adept someone is at test cricket.

That's exactly why Pope should never have been keeping. Poor bloke.

He was bad enough to get dropped. There was a mini argument on here as to whether he or Vince was the better player.

He'll probably come again, but I doubt as a 'horses for courses' selection.  More likely, simply because he's in form and other batsmen aren't performing.

At the top level, he plays quick well. He doesn't do nibble off a good length quite so much.

Totally agree.This, sorry to say often read on CBF, he keeps a bit too really doesnt cut it.

While he has the gloves press and commentators will blame him. His future is a specialist batsman.

This tour really does not have much good going for it.

I don't think anyone has been remotely harsh on Pope and his keeping, not that I've seen. Didn't see Stokes berate him for that either.

Again, you could solve all the keeping problems by selecting Foakes, but they are clearly going down a Buttler/Barstow route for South Africa

Seems perfectly sensible to me to take Jennings to Sri Lanka given he is our best opener against spin.  No one would question taking a bowling attack for the conditions you will be playing in

Haven't seen the drop but it must be so difficult for him. I know he has done it through his career so far but just picking the gloves up a day or two before and then keeping two days, scoring a few runs to put them back on cannot be good especially on short notice.

There must have been some planning though with his GM keeping gear already being out there...  :D

Thats a viewpoint, another would be if you look back to the sides that were up the top or the best in the world their batting(and bowling) line ups stayed pretty much the same regardless of where they were touring, the backed the players to adapt.

You could also have the view we are no where near knowing are best batting line up, the horses for courses conditions might mean we stay not knowing for ages.

Sri Lanka are a poor test side, we should beat them without Jennings but with Sibley,Crawley,Burns.

I say we should beat them  :)

Does anyone have a worse record with DRS than Joe Root?
He seems to burn reviews like nobody's business
