Compton was getting done. He had no idea unless it was batsman friendly.
I would have retained Compton before the Ashes and dropped Bairstow, but now they've nailed their colours to Root and Bairstow's walls they should be stuck with for a bit.
I was working last night. I expected about 150+ pages of comments after Smitteh's heoics I saw caught up on CW.
My Current XI 1.Cook 2.Pujara 3.Smih 4.Williamson 5.DeVilliers* 6.Matthews 7.Bairstow+ 8.Ashwin 9.Philander 10.Starc 11.Steyn
Favourite player currently: Ellyse Perry
Just caught up on the highlights. Has any number 9 batsman ever needed a night watchy before? Guess it shows how much Eng pamper little stuart. What a ****..
Root insists on playing late and behind point at that. He's always going to struggle early doors against quality pace.
A montage of steve smith's wickets while Aretha Franklin (?) is playing is every bit as good as you think it would be

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Number of times an Australian player has said the word 'look' in interview: 4,310,563
The general point is sound though. I think picking him was a mistake that came off and given that he's clearly not fully fit he shouldn't be playing this test either.
