    Probably comes down to who they pick. If it's Woakes/Moeen/Broad/Anderson as the 8-11 his impact is over-rated as Woakes is a traditional batsman, Anderson is a genuine #11 at this point and Broad not too much better (OK Moeen is hacky but Nathan Lyon....)

    If Archer or Curran plays instead though I think he might come in handy. He's not brilliant at blasting out good tails but hacky ones could be the difference between England's tail being a normal one and being a really frustrating one.

    Where does this idea come that Archer can hold the cue come from, regardless of his FC stats? Bloke barely looked like he knew which end to hold when he batted during the WC, limited opportunities nws.

    Pattinson's just ATG level at his peak.

    That's actually a really strong pace battery, especially in English conditions.

    I'd say the goal would be tests 1/3/5, but see how he pulls up in between. With such a small gap between tests, there's no way he'll play them all. Playing the first gives him a decent chance of at least playing in 3.

    There's a tour game before the 2nd and 4th tests though (where he can rest), so playing 1, 2 and 4 might allow him to play the 5th?

    This pace attack was given 3 new balls in one day and still only managed 4 wickets. Why are they only bowling 86 mph are they trying to copy the English trundlers?

    Cummins Inc. has been a global leader in engine manufacturing, and Cummins will definitely not let his fans down by bowling with a powerful engine in the belly.
