Ridiculously good to watch. Just hope they don't ruin him by trying to turn him into a 3 or something equally daft.

I hope they do not make him bat at 3.  As of right now I see Denly holding on but might not be a bad idea to play Crawley at 3 when Burns is back.

Long term Crawley at 3 would make a lot of sense. Denly has done a good job but realistically he hasn't scored enough runs to be sure of his place.

Denly is doing a good job if not spectacular, I think we should stick with him a bit longer,certainly for SL

yes when Burns is back it may be different, long term a younger player would be ideal.

personally I would like to see denly,burns,sibley,crawley available for 3 positions....

I think Denly has done pretty good

Not slating Denly by any means, he's done the job he has been asked to do. But looking long term, he's not the answer and equally, he hasn't scored a mountain of runs to nail down his spot in the team.

Also whilst I have no issue with him celebrating, Rabada doesn't half paint himself as a moron who will never learn

rabada has been warned before and cant seem to help himsrelf

really there's no need to get that close to the batsman, if the batter reacts he will be in trouble.

the rules seem biased and more lenient for the bowlers. speaking as a batsman!

Is he constipated?

Prior looks fat.

What is he doing these days? Wasn't he part of the group that antagonized KP ?

I felt really sorry for KP and how his career ended. Some his fault too but he was so good.

Don't think Prior was ever particularly lean 😂

If "Prior looks fat" I dread to think what your opinion of a typical English club side would be... :-[

I think he has another 18 months in him.  Not saying he's "my pick"but I think he is well liked within the current set up, and he has never let England down - which, if you look at the recent history of number 3's is a major thing (YJB's three test cameo aside, noone has looked like succeeding int eh slot) - and he brings some useful leg spin to the party, which is not to be sneezed at.  Pope would be better kept at six, working slowly up to four, and Crawley is very much a work in progress at the moment.

Totally agree Denly has this winter and next summer at least I think, Crawley will remain I think until Burns is back to after SL and ideally by that point both Denly and Crawley will have Test tons or decent avg and then we have 4 players worthy of the top 3 batting positions. Pope has batted all his career for Surrey at 5/6 so leave him there as its still a specialist batting spot which should Allow for SL Foakes to come in at 7. We look much stronger when Root, Stokes Pope come in at 100+ for 2 150+ for 3 and after 40 odd overs

I don't know if Crawley will play in Sri Lanka - I fancy they will want Jennings rather than two openers with perceived limitations against spin.  But I do have to say that he has improved rapidly in the three tests he has played - he looked like he was about to ask the bowlers for autographs in New Zealand, today he batted like he was close to comfortable out there.

@jamesisapayne click on profile in the black bar.

On the new page there are three tabs above your profile picture. Hover over the middle one "Modify profile" and a drop down menu appears. Hover over "Buddies/Ignore list" the. Click "edit ignore list"

Type the members name into the box on the bottom left hand side of the screen and press add.

Hope this helps, you should enjoy the forum more without seeing my posts! :)

Thank you so much for this, I think I've just blocked the same person as jamesisapayne did! Shame it doesn't also prevent you from seeing their quoted posts but oh well, better than nothing.

Whilst not completely related, nobody on the entire planet is buying this, right?



I've slated KP a fair bit but I loved that moment in the (first?) test when Broad took a wicket from a no-ball and KP was absolutely loving it. It cracked me up to hear how giddy he was and how he made zero attempt to hide it.
