    I’m just praying for an Indian Summer. Old Trafford in September is not usually pretty.

    I wonder if the fact we won will influence team selection.

    Roy absolutely must not open the batting but if they wanted to keep the side intact I'd be okay with him and Denly swapping places. Not sure it would change much mind

    Bairstow to open. Roy at 4. Denly 5. Buttler with the gloves at 7. Not a serious suggestion, but couldn’t do any worse.

    Lots of talk of momentum, but that doesn’t regularly make up for lack of cricket skills.

    If Jimmeh is deemed fit does he come back? Almost certainly, I guess.

    Probably replaces Woakes? Root seems less than entirely trusting of his bowling so far this series. Lengthens the tail quite considerably if he is the man to make way.

    Woakes hasn't bailed us out with the bat like one would have hoped at any stage so lengthening the tail doesn't feel all that costly, though it does give Archer and Broad nosebleeds. England should have enough runs if two or more in the top seven stand up, if not, they'll all fall in a heap regardless.


    Tragic because Woakes is twice the cricketer most England batsmen are, but them's the breaks.

    I think we should pick Haseeb Hameed for OT to open with Burns - he couldn't do any worse than Roy, and it would maybe make Paul Allott realise just how much of an idiot he's been

    Woakes has been a genuine disappointment this series. Coming in he was close to England's best player but he hasn't made the runs and his bowling has been pretty meek. Lucky to be gifted the wicket of a mentally unwell Smith at Lords too

    You risk misinforming people that he's still good

    Don't change a winning combination.

    Roy to bounce back with a massive double century...290s

    Absolutely do change a winning combination. Roy isn't up to it, and not convinced Buttler is either. I'm picking:

    Burns
    Sibley
    Root
    Denly
    Stokes
    Pope
    Bairstow
    Archer
    Broad
    Anderson
    Leach

    A superb final innings effort from Root, Denly, Bairstow and Stokes does not paper over the fact the top order aren't good enough. We should be picking the best team available, and for me, neither Roy nor Buttler make that team right now.

    Why wouldn't you respond to successive second dig unbeaten tons by dropping Stokes back down the order

    I guess. Pope can come in at 6, I just want an extra batsman in there and prefer the classical balance of 5 batsmen, all-rounder, keeper and bowlers, but does make sense to keep Stokes at 5.

    Long term I would want Pope in at 5 and Stokes at 6 but that is not for now. I don't think we will see Pope until after the ashes.

    I just can't wait to see Anderson again, really hope he is fit. Going to enjoy every Test he has left now, the injury really brought that home.
