    Yeah as if he would refuse the chance to play.

    Hopefully Australia can win this given Anderson is missing. If that happens, 5th test can get really interesting.

    Wood should be fine though, he has been rather unfortunate in missing the Test that has had the best conditions for bowling.
    Heh, thought this earlier but didn't post it through fear of ridicule

    Haha, Sidebottom would actually be a really good fit for the attack, sadly can't bowl a Test workload now

    Test workload is only about six overs against this Aussie batting line up iirc

    If they did look north then Jack Brooks might be a good shout. Needs some assistance from conditions but nowhere near as much as Rushworth. Has bowled for the Lions and has 3 top quality seasons in a row

    Times like these I'm glad for back to back Tests. Stops us running out of names.

    The wait between the 4th and 5th in 09 and Ravi's successor was particularly excruciating

    Mark Ramprakash genuinely tweeted 'defecating in a packet to send to geoff miller' when the 5th test side was announced

    in a series with great moments that was one of my favourites

    Lack of perceived options means Lyth will get another chance?

    Probably, I'd ditch him myself, because he doesn't look up to it, rather than just getting out.

    Think if we lose and he fails at TB, we'll bring in Hales though, we'll need to win the final Test to get the Ashes back, and the Oval is a pitch that stroke-players can thrive on. Think Rashid may get a look in too, a leg spinner may do well on a bouncy pitch.

    Yet I hope it doesn't come to that.

    The most likely outcome for replacing Lyth if there's no obvious options is surely a makeshift opener? I guess there's aren't a ton of prolific middle order choices either though.

    Personally I feel like Lyth has to go, even if it's for a pretty left field pick. Unlike say Voges, who I think is struggling but could make runs, I just don't think Lyth is going to. He looks terrible out there.

    Think I'd do S. Marsh to 4 too.

    I wouldn't mind Bell opening oddly enough, as he's done it in one-day stuff, butow he's done well at 3 I don't see that happening.

    James Taylor is an obvious middle-order choice, and perhaps number 3 if they shifted Bell to opener

    Trent Bridge doesn't swing that much any more. That new stand changed things.
