    Might be a benefit. He's got worse as the series has gone on.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    Could see Broad taking a load of wickets though, you feel it is going to happen at some point.

    Would drop Bairstow and pick Taylor but it won't happen. They won't rest Jimmy until the series is won properly. If at all.

    On Bairstow. I'm adding he's at least on notice now. The top order and Prior have been crap but they have runs in the bank. The ginger wonder doesn't.

    Well it's not like he could have improved on his start. He bowled well at Lord's. resting him would be absurd. The series isn't won, why give them a sniff?

    If Anderson is fit and doesn't play then it tops the time Darren Pattinson was selected as the worst selectorial decision of my time watching England.

    There is no way Anderson will not play.

    Brezzers to continue being England's best bowler, Anderson or Broad to be rested for this one imo.

    Won't happen.

    As I've said elsewhere, Aus must be sorely tempted to play four quicks at Durham. If Lyon couldn't make an impact at Old Trafford, there's precious little point in playing him at Chester-le-Street.

    Would like to see Onions play too - if for no other reason than if our batting continues to resemble Lancashire's on a bad day we might need his Agaresque number eleven batting ability

    If it is a normal Durham pitch it could be over in three days.

    Durham's T20 pitches have been an absolute ****ing joke this season as well.

    With Watson it would be five seamers though. He's almost worth playing just to stop an excessive amount of similar options. Either that or play Faulkner instead because of his batting #ShaneWarneThoughts

    Aussies should 100% play 4 seamers. Lyon showed nothing against the right handers at OT, Bird in for him.

    I didn't. I thought they blocked him with ease and wacked him into the stand when they fancied it.
