    I wouldn't even remotely contemplate playing Pucovski in the Ashes, no doubt he's a very promising talent, but to throw a player with so little FC experience in the biggest Test series of them all is a poor idea I reckon. It is a huge thing as much mentally as anything else, could really do more harm than good in the long term.

    Haseeb Hameed springs to mind, and also Renshaw to a certain extent

    Realistically I see Head Patterson and Labuschagne (and maybe Wade at a stretch) as fighting for two middle order spots

    Interesting match up Lancs vs Durham.

    Anderson has 0-28 off 10 overs, however Bancroft has 26 off 26 balls from him (so other 34 balls to English bats went for 2 runs)

    Bancroft currently 54*


    Edit: Okay Anderson had the last laugh bowling Bancroft for 77 and taking 2-35 off 17 overs

    And Labuschagne is first player past 1000 runs this county season. After his 106 in first innings he's currently 74* in second innings giving him 1032 runs.

    Pretty much locked in his Ashes squad spot you would think

    Yeah, as much as his initial selection rankled, you can't really complain about a bloke getting picked if he's scoring that many runs in such a short space of time in the exact same country as the next big series.

    Going to be an odd transition from watching the WC to the Ashes. Haven't watched any white ball cricket since about January.
    Wasn't NZ vs Bangladesh the last test before the white ball barrage?

    Great news.

    Deserves first crack at the Poms alongside Warner

    Burns averages in the 40s in Test cricket, and is the incumbent who scored 180 in Australia's most recent Test

    This is not kid's cricket where you have a trial match (Aus A v Aust) and the highest scorer gets first prize

    It's professional cricket, and it's to be expected that the selectors will act professionally haha and not have a bout of amnesia

    i think starc and cummins will cruise in on white ball form (which selectors like). haze could be in trouble by not playing.

    England has named the following Lions XI

    James Bracey, Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ben Foakes, Lewis Gregory, Jack Leach, Saqib Mahmood, Sam Northeast, Jamie Porter, Ollie Robinson, Dom Sibley

    I see Sibley, Northeast and Crawley are 3 of the top 4 run scorers in Division 1 (Ballance at 3rd is missing) so assume they are hot for the first Ashes Test?
