    Does that actually tie him up? I thought it had to be a full international?

    Wasn't Alam playing for Aus A before he became eligible for Australia, thus suggesting that A / Lions games are completely meaningless in terms of international availability.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Yeah if they want to tie him down then play him in a one dayer after the ashes.

    Has Robson done enough to tour? Even if he has its still a big call to take him given that he would be under fire if he played a test.

    No, i'd take Compo if we need another opener. A debut in Australia is unfair on the lad. Hence I said to pick him for a one dayer if he is that close to selection to tie him down. Not sure how close he is and how much is media talk.

    I'd say Robson has no chance of making the full squad. He's basically had one good season and he hasn't been selected for the lions(not even in the experimental side to play aus later this week) yet. He isn't get selected.

    Openers

    Alastair Cook
    Joe Root
    Michael Carberry

    Batsmen

    Jonathan Trott
    Kevin Pietersen
    Ian Bell
    James Taylor
    Gary Ballance

    Wicket-Keepers
    Matt Prior
    Jonny Bairstow

    Bowlers
    Tim Bresnan
    Graeme Swann
    Stuart Broad
    James Anderson
    Chris Tremlett
    Graham Onions
    Simon Kerrigan

    I'd take Carberry on tour, just in case as I reckon he'd flourish in Australian conditions, but I imagine England will go with Cook and Root for the final game of this series, and into the Ashes in Australia. Then I added James Taylor and Gary Ballance, with one of them getting the number 6 spot, probably Taylor. I then stuck Bairstow in as the back-up keeper, don't rate him personally, but he'll tour. Then, the bowlers pretty much pick themselves, with Kerrigan getting in due to being the best performing spinner in the CC. Would have gone with Monty, but after his recent behaviour, I can't see them taking him with them to Australia.

    Moeen Ali? Really?

    Cas against Robson is not stringing 2 seasons together so there's no way Moeen deserves anything just because he's got some runs in division 2 - was woeful in division 1 last year.

    Does Moeen deserve a place more than Ballance?

    Don't reckon there'll be too many 'new, names in the squad. Could be something like:

    Cook(c)
    Root
    Trott
    Pietersen
    Bell
    Bairstow
    Taylor
    Chopra
    Prior
    Swann
    Panesar
    Broad
    Bresnan
    Anderson
    Tremlett
    Finn
    Onions

    Fair points. Just been impressed with Moeen whenever I've seen him. Ballance probably would be a better option though TBF.

    Don't think we can count Moeen as a serious option to tour a place where he won't bowl. Asia maybe.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    In fairness Robson did average 50 last season.

    That was 2011 - averaged 30 last year which is why I said about not backing it up.
