    Why even contemplate risking Jimmy?

    Series is won, he has a niggle. Why bother?

    I'd be amazed if Jimmy plays.

    When Ward was in the dressing room yesterday Jimmy even said I shouldn't laugh because it hurts my side.

    It'll be the same team unless it looks like a Bunsen.

    So Lyth is going to get exactly what Robson got. Ton in second game, then a five match series where he doesn't get dropped. Fair enough, but I'd assume if he doesn't get runs they'll be someone else going to the UAE.

    Stuart MacGill wants Doran in the 5th Test.

    Yeah, exactly.

    They won't go back to the best option (Compton), so, well, who knows who gets the next crack at opening.

    Hales probably. He hasn't broken the door down, but he has played fairly well over last two years in red ball cricket.

    Stuart Broad has been very good this series (so have other England bowlers). Some may say that his 2011 bowling vs India was his best but I believe he has got much better since, the way he set up Cheteshwar Pujara and Vijay at Southampton on a flat pitch showed that he had evolved into a thinking bowler and of course his recent 8 wicket haul was top class.

    Yeah Broads length has consistently been excellent this summer, hope it continues as when he is just full of a good length he is a world class seamer.

    I'm not sure Cummins is ready. He recently said he has been bowling 10 overs a day in matches/nets. That's profress but really a test workload is it. I just fear he would break down mid match if it's not another 2 day test.

    It's a good time to be making runs if you're in the Aus A side ATM. Wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of the younger blokes get a gig against the Bangers.

    Love MacGilla, but sometimes he needs to go easy on the Shiraz

    Hindsight has such a funny way of determining people's opinion in cricket. Compton is actually a right-handed carbon copy in terms of Lyth's Test career. Tons against NZ surrounded by absolutely bugger all else and a glaring technical fault (Lyth outside off stump, Compton around his front pad)
