    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Can't understand Finn over Footit. There's no way Finn will play, why call up Footit for the training camp then just send him back? Other than that a decent squad. The line-up makes itself.

    The Rashid thing is going to get even louder now. If Moeen does play the first test he is going to be under so much pressure, nervous for him. Or we go bowler mad and play 6 of them...

    Taking Rashid for Ali will be a risky decision that may backfire. England probably needs to take risky decisions though, if they want to make any impact in this series.

    That is scary - unless you're Australian.

    More than half the squad falls within the first three letters of the alphabet. Not sure if we should read any more into that but something to think about the the Aussies.

    Rashid will only play as a second spinner. Last time we played two spinners in Cardiff 1/246. That was with Swann and Panesar.

    I don't think Harris was going to play in this match, so his injury doesn't alter things too much.

    Haze is looming like a colossus over this series I feel. I think Johnson will do a lot of the damage, but Hazlewood is going to keep Cook and Bell awake at night.
