    a Lord's road would be nice indeed

    PatCumStarc would still be dangerous but other than maybe Archer the poms will be very nice to face

    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.
    Gone really well in the Championship scoring 815 runs at 62.69, get him in!

    In Division 1 too. Apparently he's 29 now. Only seems like yesterday he was a promising teenager.

    I've seen a few suggestions that Starc will replace Siddle. I don't really like Cummins+Starc+Pattinson as a bowling unit. I feel as though Cummins is a lock and its a battle between either Patto and Starc for one spot and Siddle and Hazlewood for the other.

    I don't really understand the point of Denly. They have no openers and lots of middle-order options, yet they've brought a thoroughly mediocre 33-year-old county opener in to bat 4.

    Feels like they made a series of decisions that each made some kind of sense in isolation, but the end result is totally illogical.

    How newspapers are dumb enough to suggest taking 6-for and scoring 100 in a 2nd XI game boosts his Ashes chances, certainly confirms we shouldn't read them in the first place.

    And I dunno if I'm being soft but rocking up bowling - apparently a **** load of - short stuff to teenaged 2nd XI batsmen seems pretty off.

    Debut Hildreth I don't even care that it'd be a horrible decision.

    He's always in the worst form at the worst times

    Perhaps it's more to do with confirming his fitness rather than his actual figures in the match.

    Did you even watch the highlights? Most wickets were caught behind driving and at least one bowled.

    It boosts his chances of playing in the Ashes because it means he has a level of fitness. They'll decide based on any reaction if he can be risked in a Test Match. They're not implying a major boost to his ego that will have the Australians trembling.

    It's less about the figures, more about the fitness.

    Sussex's next CC game doesn't start until 18th August. It was 2nd XI or the Vitality Blast (or whatever the feck our domestic T20 comp calls itself now) as options to prove his fitness and, I suppose, bowling a lengthy-ish spell in the stiffs is a better test of his fitness than 4 overs in the shits and giggles.
