    *Official* Fifth Test at the Oval

    Carn Clarke. Roll back the clock one last time before you go.
    ​63*

    I would keep the team the same but they could go:

    Cook
    Hales
    Bell
    Root
    Bairstow
    Stokes
    Buttler
    Rashid
    Broad
    Wood
    Finn

    Hales got 85 today which is good timing. I would give Lyth one more go though, if he can't score at the Oval it will be curtains for him for a while.

    I've heard the saying the team who makes the most runs wins, so Australia have made 2084 while England are on 1930 runs, so a decent showing such as a 150 run loss or a small innings defeat and we will have this one in the bag.

    Would be tempted to bring in Rashid just so he isn't making his debut in UAE. No point rushing Jimmy back, he can put his feet up for the rest of the summer so Rashid for Moeen for this test but tell Moeen he is on the tour and is just rested for this match.

    If it is a dustbowl (and given how Stokes has bowled) could give Finn/Wood a rest and go with two spinners. Not sure what the Oval has been like this year, but it seems perpetual that the '2 spinners at the Oval' talk comes around every summer.

    Yeah if it that dry then 2 spinners is obvious, be some tail with Rashid at 9.

    What is the current tally in terms of runs per wicket?

    Edit: Australia 2084/70: 29.77, Eng 1930/61; 31.64.

    For batsmen whose name is not Joe Root, its not been the best series for English batsmen either.

    I want both teams to get funky.

    ENG:
    1. Cook *
    2. Ansari
    3. Bell
    4. Root
    5. Bairstow
    6. Stokes
    7. Moeen
    8. Rashid
    9. Foster +
    10. Broad
    11. Finn

    AUS:
    1. Warner
    2. Rogers
    3. Smith
    4. Clarke
    5. Voges
    6. Turner
    7. Nevill +
    8. Starc
    9. Sandhu
    10. Hazlewood
    11. Lyon

    With Sandhu channelling his inner Colin Miller again.
    Mind the Windows, Tino!

    In all seriousness, with Lyth rubbish and the usual calls for 2 spinners, Ansari not a completely terrible option on his home ground IMO.

    If he bats once 122* or 172 if he gets out.

    Bats twice assuming out both times he needs 222.
