    ICC Player Rankings

    Pat Cummins now has 914 points in ICC player ratings and has equaled McGrath's career-best rating.

    The decision on whether or not he’s allowed to play should be made by a concussion specialist independent of Cricket Australia.

    That's quite a gap to 2nd spot on the rankings

    Why? Do you think Australian doctors will send a sick man out to a possible death because it might increase their chances of winning the series?

    Like everyone I'm still spooked by the Hughes incident and, reluctantly, think Smith should be spelled for this test. Bancroft out Harris in Marnus at 4. Its a terrible batting side and I expect us to lose. Hopefully Smith can come back for the last two matches, rested, composed and with a plan. Except for the slight problem of not scoring the required runs Marnus doesn't look bad. He seems to have a pretty good technique and certainly has ambition and a pair of stones. Anyway he got us a draw at Lords and must come in whether Smith plays or not.

    Of course he wants to, any player worth his salt would, but from a duty of care standpoint?

    CA's concussion guidelines seem uniquely lax, in having no mandatory standdown.

    Cards on table, I don't want him to play, being English and that, but players' health must transcend parochial rivalry or short term expediency, surely?

    Not a doctor though etc etc
    In other sports he'd already be ruled out. I guess cricket rules are different. Not sure I'd want Root playing if it was him who was hit despite the importance of the test to the series result.

    Decision should be made by an Englishman

    Cricket seems slightly behind the likes of the NFL in terms of concussion management.

    After his relatively moderate performance this Lord's Test thank goodness we don't have to hear from the English cricket media again about how astounding his record at the ground is.

    I thought Woakes was excellent and is being bafflingly underbowled by Root basically all series. 3 overs in the second innings was as strange as him not being brought into the attack for an entire session in the first test. Maybe he's carrying a niggle but it's still dumb.

    Surprised at the general consensus that Siddle should be the one to make way for Starc, and that's speaking as someone who didn't think he should be considered for the squad in the first place.

    Had at least 3 chances missed off his bowling and still took as many wickets as Hazlewood did. I reckon Lord's it was the same issues that we've seen from Hazlewood for 18 months; after a great start he became increasingly bland and was barely a threat in the 2nd innings (and less so than Siddle imo).

    Anyone who actually watched the game would not advocate for sitting Siddle out.
