    Lions 175-1, chance of a good lead if the weather allows.

    You guys all still want Boult in your team?

    Lions should play the first test IMO.

    Think i read somewhere that the England test squad is named tomorrow rather than the normal sunday.

    number 6 batsman- Bairstow or Taylor. Likely to be Bairstow but I'd go with Ravi personally - just for the lols

    Then the third seamer's spot. One of Onions, Finn, Bresnan, Woakes and Tremlett you'd imagine with possibly 2 or 3 in the squad.

    Given Root wasn't even that prolific in division two last year, and still had the winter he had, it's a really good sign that this season he's churned out 100's against Durham, Derbyshire and now a near full strength New Zealand attack. I mean, if he could get international runs off the back of an average county season, think what he could do off the back of a big scoring one.

    You and many others would go with Ravi just for the Scaly post about it.

    Tremlett is nowhere near selection atm surely. I think Onions has earned a chance but I imagine they'll either go with Finn (continuity) or Bresnan (strengthen batting, although Swann returning in place of Panesar means there's less need to stiffen the tail).

    Yeah I would go with Onions but am almost certain it will be Finn.

    Bresnan will play the first test of the ashes though.

    Yes good signs. Bound to fail epically now in these tests though, such is life.

    Boult will be fine.

    Always thought Root looked good in NZ. Certainly more competent against the moving ball than someone like Compton or Bairstow.
