    He is probably not good enough to bat in the top 3 but he can play proper innings, in his current role he just doesn't have to. Should definitely be batting above Buttler though. Hope he actually gets some bowling done at the Oval, he really has bowled very few overs this summer and he needs them, UAE is going to be such a huge series for him.

    I think the only reason people are suggesting it here are to give Rashid a debut before the UAE tour. Don't think anyone seriously thinks it is how we should play in the future.

    This, he will be the 2nd spinner in the squad so why not give him a game in a match that counts a bit less as it has already been won before the tough series he will almost certainly play in?

    It's the Ashes. Don't take the piss.
    Was it taking the piss when we did the same thing in Adelaide?

    It'd be amazing if England win this one, because that would mean that in the last two years, the best performing away sides in England would be ranked: Sri Lanka, New Zealand, India, Australia. Crazy.

    That evening was absolutely hilarious. Realised he'd made a massive mistake and had to cry off to his Mum to avoid another loss.

    Yeah Starc feigning injury to slow down the over rate, something Boof had been ranting about couple of matches before.

    England squad just come out. Only change is Jimmy for Footit so no funky changes.

    Lyth gets one more game I guess unless they do the 2 spinners with Moeen opening.
