And who comes through instead then?
We haven't seen enough of Taylor, Elgar, Rossouw, Stokes etc at the top level to say who has the best depth yet.
England still found serviceable replacements at short notice - Compton, Bairstow, Root etc.
You can't judge their depth by picking out the duffers. Every team has those. South Africa currently have Rudolph and Elgar in their Test squad for New Zealand.
Elgar has played one test on the one pitch in the world he was always ****ed on and Rudolph is easily better than some of the batsmen England have wheeled out. Finally dropping Bopara, Morgan and Patel doesn't absolve England of the fact they played them very recently and those guys are still most definitely on the fringes.
They know he's ****e but he's still playing. Nobody knows why England picked that useless sack of ****e Bopara, and persevered with Morgan - but they young guys who they thought would come good. Rudolph isn't, he's there to make up the numbers.

Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Didn't England play Taylor for a few matches? Looked a park cricketer. Kid using his Dad's kit.
Saffers will be fine.
