    Moeen yes. He's bowling a hell of lot but doesn't look dangerous and is too expensive. I don't think Wood is a Test bowler either yet, but there's sod all to replace him with.

    Thought you didn't rate Jos, perhaps I was making it up

    Bairstow with 5 tons in 7 championship matches this season simply has to come in. I think we are all of the same mind that he wouldn't be our first choice given his technique and past record but sheer weight of runs means he deserves the chance.

    Given KP is currently not playing anything but hit and giggle how could you consider him?

    Certain we won't make wholesale changes, just be Bairstow for Ballance with Root and Bell moving up a place in the order. Maybe Foottit to get a serious look at given he is different to what we have, not sure about him either though.

    I don't think he rates any of them.

    He's not a good keeper, but in the modern age that doesn't matter.

    Bell at 3 does not really seem an option right now though.

    Should definitely pick Bairstow for someone. Lyth is the first one I'd drop but then someone else has to open.
    It's cold on the outside they say
    But the cold leaves you clear while the heat leaves a haze

    Yeah. I was not being serious. Funny thing is though if he had been left for Lyth in the West Indies he would be right in the frame.
