    Although he was obviously never going to play, and certainly not as a batsman, it will be interesting to see if any opener makes a higher score this summer.

    Burns is retained? Ugh. Hope he proves me wrong, but with all the moving parts in his technique when he's not a prime nick he looks a walking wicket.

    There can't be that many players that have played a match winning innings then been immediately dropped for the next game.

    I would ask those that seem to think that most of these games won't go beyond the 3rd day. Do Eng or Crims even need to play a 'spinner'? Especially ones that are number 11s like Ali and Lyon?

    Has Anderson fully recovered from the calf injury?

    This is going to be a terrible series for batsmen if things go as expected and popular expectation is never fulfilled. I therefore don't see one of Broad and Cummins having a very good series. Starc might disappoint also.

    There are two other blokes who’ve been cut from a squad for this series alone who made tons in their last test

    i think i would play

    titanic
    hindenburg
    bairstow
    root
    buttler
    stokes
    woakes
    moeen
    curran
    broad
    anderson

    i'd give one of anderson and archer a break since they're coming off injuries and you don't want to risk both going down in the first test.

    everyone below root is kind of interchangeable in batting position, i just avoided stokes at #5 because i don't like balanced allrounders that high.

    From the squad, my team would be:

    Bairstow (wk)
    Roy
    Root (time to stop bottling it Joe).
    Buttler
    Stokes
    Curran
    Denly
    Woakes
    Broad
    Stones/Archer (Archer if 100% fit).
    Anderson

    Can't see the selectors risking Archer or persuading Root to move from four, so it's this I think:

    Burns
    Roy
    Denly
    Root*
    Stokes
    Buttler
    Bairstow+
    Woakes
    Ali
    Broad
    Anderson

    I think the fact that they've picked Archer in the squad shows they're willing to risk him, though of course he won't play if he's definitely not fit on the day.

    if broad shits the bed he's definitely worth a look, tho im concerned his natural length might be frustratingly slightly too short.

    I just realised that this is the sixth Ashes series I've followed and I have the least confidence in the batting of the combined sides that I've had for any of them.
