    Why not.

    Bird in for Srac would be the only change I'd make on either side.

    I want Onions to play, Flower already said he is going to be in the squad so I think he is chance.

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

    Agreed that Bird has to play. I would take Compton and play Root at 6. I also wonder if there is a way that Watson can be replaced? (5th bowling chops notwithstanding )

    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    Any news on Bell, Kps or Cooks injuries? Would be interesting what they'd do if Cook pulled out, I really wouldn't mind Carberry getting a go, the bloke just can't stop scoring runs ATM, and it would just be a stop-gap.

    They'll want to get five days of ticket money though. Traditionally CLS is much more seamer than spin friendly though isn't it? Could favour the Aussies who have more bowlers I'd consider seam bowlers in the Onions variety than England.

    I didn't know Bell or Cook had any issues? What are they?

    Oh probably just internet scuttlebutt about Bell, I'm sure someone thought he may have broke a finger. Cook is just that Swann comment about his bad back.

    I think I just want some changes, spice things up a bit. It's been a shudderingly anti-climactic match.

    I'd like to see Bairstow dropped so as Yorkshire can get some batsmen back in the team.

    I understand that whenever Bresnan is in the team people want to play someone else by default but it really ignores how he was easily England's best seamer on day one. Maybe give him a go on a helpful deck?

    Knock is Ding Dong might've bust his thumb, isn't it?

    One way or another I think the JT it's ok not to think is a racist ****wad will get a gig, whether it's for the injured hero or the hapless ranga.

    Could also see Jimmeh taking the pine too; Onions stepping in on his home ground.

    I'd be more in favour of giving Jimmy a rest if I was to get Onions in tbh.

    Probably in the minority there though...

    Bell's thumb is fine according to Simon Hughes.
