    Bres should be brought back if the objective is to get Watto LBW, Howe Zat to back this thought up.

    Anyway, Ponting going to stay, which is good news, hope it means less Warne.

    Even though this masterclass segment coming up was fun, and it included Heals and Warne, just goes to show when they just talk about their own cricketing expertise they don't have to be imbecilic ****wits.

    If Woakes had played more cricket they might of have thought about picking him and dropping Ali in favour of whoever they consider the best spinner.

    Warner
    Rogers
    Smith
    S Marsh
    Clarke
    Nevill
    M Marsh
    Johnson
    Starc
    Hazlewood
    Lyon

    Marsh deserves his chance and Voges just isn't going to cut it at Test level. He's as well batting higher up the order where he can protect Clarke, who looks desperate to bat at 5 again. Mitch Marsh looks like he's batting a place too high, IMO. Starc doesn't deserve to play the next match, but I just don't see the selectors calling up Siddle or Cummins to replace him.

    Had a random thought about Onions for this. TB should be his kinda ground and he is/was the closest thing we have to a poor man's Jimmeh.

    Not even sure if Onions is still a thing even though.

    Lyth has to go too, surely? Not making 40 once in six digs isn't cutting the Coleman's at this level.

    Hales to debut at home? The script is written. Notoriously dire starter though he may be.

    marsh stays at 6 imo, it's where he'll be for a while so needs to be given time to make it his own

    smarsh in for voges at 4 and clarke down to 5 is the obvious change that needs to be made, aside from that this is our strongest team with the players available and one poor test doesn't change that

    Last time I checked the county averages Onions was doing pretty pish (yes I know the averages aren't the be all and end all.)

    Funnily enough, just before Jimmeh got injured I kinda thought this series might turn out a bit like the India series last season - after defeat at Lord's we get swinging conditions and an opposition lineup that can't handle Anderson and Broad at their best.

    Stokes needs to step up his game; I don't follow County Cricket to know who the obvious replacement for Anderson is. As long as it's not Jordan.

    I still worry about a Jimmyless attack, even when he's not on it, as long as he's not bowling complete trash then the attack seems to take the lead from him.

    Onions not even playing for Durham in one-day stuff, actually he bizarrely played against England under-19s for the Unicorns the last few days, suffice to say he isn't what he was.

    Bresnan actually through all the HZ baiting, would make much more sense. Swings it great record at Trent Bridge, playing ok for Yorkshire.

    Said it all summer, without Anderson we must call for Sidebottom. I mean seriously how great would that be.

    Wood should be fine though, he has been rather unfortunate in missing the Test that has had the best conditions for bowling.

    Sexy chocolate is technically retired as an international.

    He's an absolute champ though. Held the team together in the late 2000s.

    I would love a near 40 yr old to bowl us to victory in the Ashes, and would be a great middle finger to Duncan Fletcher who refused to pick him for all those years.
