Well it looks like the present staff are set to carry on. Carry on regardless as it were and this whole tour reminds me of a 'Carry On' film.
Goochy on the radio today says he wants to continue, Flower is carrying on and wants Cook to remain as skipper. I know that Mr Flower is still in credit with the ECB but letting him carry on appears much like rewarding failure. Have no idea about the bowling coach...he may be wanted by Australia (kidding).
Obviously Stokes remains along with Broad. And Ballance has shown a bit but poor old Scott Borthwick may turn to be another one cap wonder. Cook, KP and Bell as the experience. Perhaps James Taylor for the summer? Might be worth having a look at Mills against Sri Lanka and possibly Kerrigan if he is bowling well for his county. Prior to captain? Possibly.
i think this series conclusively proves that mo money mo problems.

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
England need to pick Chris Jordan. My campaign to get him in the test side begins here. Am convinced he would be a decent selection.
Someone tweeted Bumble that the Taliban should take over English cricket!!!
I may be wrong but I'm guessing that the MCC would find the Taliban a touch too extreme...
They should probably consult Dean Jones on the matter.
bring tymal mills into the team and so bring in some genuine pace from a left armer...root to open the batting ( i know he is in poor form but feel thats bcos he ahd been messed around) .Get rid of rankin as he is dross and bring Eoin Morgan in at six.
"Play Hard but play fair..."
So bring in someone whose division 2 county don't trust enough to play FC cricket for them and someone else who's barely played any FC cricket in recent times and has a history of failing when he has tried Tests in the past?
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!

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Really don't think Morgan should be in the frame though, he's just not good at the long format.

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
Yes, it's one thing saying he may do better, but if his county won't pick him then there's no way on Earth England should.
It is Essex though. The team that in their wisdom decided to sign Saj Mahmood and have made countless other questionable decisions over the last few years squandering an abundance of talent to leave them languishing in the second division.
So - Flower has gone but then wants to be moved upstairs somewhere? Why doesn't he just clear off so we can build newly.
And if Flower is the problem how the **** is Giles the answer?!
I don't think Cook will improve. He's been standing in the field for over 10 years and if he hasn't picked up anything from the various captains he has played under by now I don't see much change. He leaves the field placings to the bowlers and Prior. I think with Prior on one side of him and Swann on the other he relied on their input and it was evident when Bairstow and Root replaced them it got worse. Then Bell replaced Root in the slips, probably Flower wanting some experienced player next to Cook rather than for his slip catching.
