    We'll see if he's a bowling version of Jason Roy soon...

    Burns
    Roy
    Root
    Northeast
    Stokes
    Buttler
    Curran
    Woakes
    Archer
    Broad
    Leach

    It does the 6 bowlers thing that you should never do but it is so easy to end up doing it with England and feel like Curran should be in there, could just play Foakes though. If you were putting together a normal team then really want another batsman in there and I would much rather have Stokes at 6 and Buttler at 7. If Pope had not been injured all season (I think he is just back) then he could bat 5 and you don't play Curran.

    Who knows if Northeast would be any better than the rest we have tried but got to think he is a better batsman than Denly

    In reality it will just be Archer in for Anderson and Leach in for Moeen.

    Ha, just saw the report. 6-for and a ton.

    Admittedly the Gloucestershire stiffs aren't quite Oz, but doing exactly what test class player should do to kids, has beens and never wozzers.

    Averages over 30 with the bat in the FC game. Archer to open!

    Archer in for Anderson then. Just how many other are dropped now.

    Would be very surprised if they dropped anyone other than Ali. Maybe Denly at a push.

    Denly was at least in part picked because he was a bowling option in Sri Lanka, it feels like he kind of ended up in the team by mistake.

    Is Northeast Kimmy K and Kanye's oldest child?

    He won't blow them away with pace. They play and practice against his kind of pace all the time. If he's taking poles he's doing it with a bit of pace, bounce and movement on a good length.

    Lot of pressure on him, but with he, Woakes and Broad it's a good pace attack for Lord's. My understanding is Woakes has a crazy record at the ground. Sometimes you find a new, exciting player (especially a bowler) adds a lot of energy to s aide, and dog knows England needs that.

    I think he'll bowl well. Will be a good battle between he, Warner and Smith.

    If itís another green pitch and the weather is autumnal it could be interesting on the first morning.

    His first class record is much better than Roy so I think he will be a test match quality bowler.

    Different format, different players. And they won anyway.

    If england want to win the series they need couple of bats to catch fire. The way things are atm, even if they skittle Australia for 150, theyíre not going to make m/any more themselves.

    Iím looking forward to watching him bowl though.

    Hildreth getting a gig and scoring a ton would be so funny. So many wasted years not giving him a chance

    Any idea how Northeast is going this year? I genuinely haven't a clue.

    Other than that query, that would be my team too. Including swapping Stokes and Buttler, even if Stokes isn't keen to bat in the top 5. As you suggest, it seems crazy that Curran is deemed surplus to requirements even if we need six bowlers to have him in the side.

    As long as it's not like the pitch in 2015 which totally negated our bowlers.
