    Combined XI from the first test

    What is your combined XI from the series so far?

    Warner
    Bancroft
    Vince
    Smith
    Root (c)
    Ali
    Bairstow (wk)
    Cummins
    Starc
    Hazlewood
    Lyon

    Anderson and Broad very unlucky. Not picking up a single wicket in the second innings hurt them.

    Similarly Marsh can feel hard done by (for the first time in his life) but I felt like Ali's batting was fractionally ahead of his. Stoneman was a lock until the 4th innings.

    There were very few standout performers from either side. Smith grabbing the only ton, Cummins and Lyon being the standout bowlers. A case could be made for an attack of Anderson, Broad, Cummins and Lyon but Haze picked up vital second innings wickets and Starc have Lyon some rough to bowl into.

    Sorry but Starc bowled like an absolute drain and shouldn't be in a combined team.

    No way would I have Starc in there, and even Haze bowled only two or three good spells. Broad and Anderson for both IMO. A lot of bowlers went around the wicket, so there's no need for the left-armer to create rough.
    do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
    who's going to make the violins?

    Swap Starc/Hazlewood for Anderson and Broad and I'd agree. Might be tempted to swap Warner for Stoneman also.

    This isn't indicative of the quality of the bowling, you should know this.

    Other than the obvious Anderson/Broad in for Starc/Haze, shouldn't Marsh be ahead of Ali as well?

    Edit: nvm, somehow forgot Ali scored a few runs in the first innings as well.

    Ali actually looked one of the most comfortable batsmen in the entire game across both sides. Seemed to be able to time the ball much more easily than anyone else.

    Warner
    Stoneman
    Vince
    Smith*
    Root
    Ali
    Bairstow +
    Cummins
    Broad
    Lyon
    Anderson

    Also gives us a proper #11 as it should be.

    Warner
    Bancroft
    Vince
    Smith (c)
    Root
    Moeen
    Paine+
    Starc
    Cummins
    Broad
    Lyon

    Bowlers (other than Lyon) the hardest choices. Starc probably least deserving of the XI, but his demolishing of the tail got him over the line.

    Marsh instead of Root, Marsh played a far better innings and made more of an impact.

    No way can you give 7 spots to the losing side. Bancroft in and Marsh in for Root.
