    I've softened over the last three years but the thought of him bating against Saffa fills me with dread.

    Can't go much worse than the last two number sixes mind. Any chance of Colly coming back?

    How could you hate Ravi?

    Has always been pity if anything with a slight hint of amusement.

    There are several I'd pick above Bopara tbh, but I suppose he's earned another go - and if he does get the gig I sincerely hope he proves me wrong

    Yeah, he has scored runs this year, so he has done what's asked, if he get's the gig, and things **** up he'll be in prime form and no excuses, then we can draw a line through him and look elsewhere.

    Whether that be Compton, Stokes, Patel, Hildreth, Taylor or whomever.

    Don't mind Ravi at all to be honest. He wouldn't be my pick for the number 6 spot, but he probably deserves another go. And he gets way too much stick from fans, a lot of whom are on here.

    I am expecting him back in the side for the SA series, hope he takes the chance, not sure he will.

    For the record I was worried it was a year to early for Bairstow and wanted Taylor anyway.

    Have always found him likeable, though I have veered wildly in where I actually rate him. Back when everyone hated Ian Bell I had a personal agenda not to have an opinion on him and have since taken the same attitude with Ravi the test batsman.

    I do rate his mediums though.
