    Now we know why Ponting wants him gone. No summer roady runs for you Pup.

    Didn't we once have a team with 11 First-class centurions, think it had Richard Illingworth in at 11. Wasn't much cop. Wait a minute here it is.

    On changes I'm pretty split on one hand we clearly have a fair few problem positions and this would seem to be a great time to blood some newbies, but #OTOH, it does seem to be throwing away Ashes wins to people who aren't really deserving.

    Yeah, nine isn't even that amazing actually. Team that beat India at Trent Bridge four years ago had 10.

    Will be annoyed if we select like at the Oval two years ago.

    It's the Ashes. Don't take the piss.
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    Ali to open, Rashid or Jimmy in for Lyth depending on the pitch.

    But in this case I am talking about only one of them playing, so it would be 10 first class centurions.

    Gee, I would seriously love this to happen, unfortunately 22/2 seems more realistic, but you never know with Clarke.

    Don't mind that idea of Ali opening to bring in Rashid, but quite frankly am happy for Jimmeh to rest up for a while, wrap him in cotton wool until the UAE.

    I would give Lyth one more go, with the series won I think with 7 matches he'd have been given a really fair shake either way.

    If he scored a dead rubber hundred on a batting track at the Oval, would you be pleased to keep playing him?

    Not sure I would

    It is interesting that England fans have generally focused on Lyth's struggles so much more than Buttler's when they've performed very much the same with the bat.

    If England wanted to give Rashid a game they could give Bairstow the gloves and drop Jos. Shouldn't happen, just saying it is an alternative.

    TBH, a Test match hundred is a Test match hundred*, in the end if he scored it to go along with the Kiwi one it wouldn't worry me to play him against the UAE, more perturbing would be a scratchy fifty or something.

    *gawd I'm profound.
