    Final Position in the ATG English XI (for the modern age!)

    well Trescothick has overtaken Stewart, so Stewart is now a candidate for the top 7 again, along with Jonathan Trott, Ian Bell and Ben Stokes. and if one of these guys gets picked it'l push Flintoff down to 8.


    but will fraser and broad be chosen? Or maybe Tuffers for a second spinner? Or maybe Moeen? The choice is yours CW:CC. If one of the last 4 get named, Flintoff bats 7.



    Team atm

    Trescothick
    Cook
    ~
    Root
    Pietersen
    Thorpe
    ~
    Prior
    ~
    Flintoff
    ~
    Swann
    ~
    Gough
    ~
    Anderson



    ^that may be a little confusing, but I feel only the 1-2 and 11 are set in stone here.

    kind of forced to go stewart or trott to avoid root at #3 but ideally i'd have broad in there. stokes and flintoff combo down the order in a world without prior would be good fun.

    Its a farce Root makes the cut yet he is potentially an English ATG bat which on its own is very rare but till now he has not had one successful away tour ( a Windies away tour no longer holds any significance) until he does that there is no way he should be in a squad of XV let alone XI.

    I guess an average of 89 on the last away tour doesn't count does it?

    They've got high hopes.
    Kumar Sangakarra averages over 69 as a specialist batsman. I'm glad we resolved that whole Tendulkar vs Lara thing.

    He means like a top 8 team that appears at ICC events.

    29 tests on its own is a very small sample size based on 29 tests Trott would have been England's finest since Barrington. I have no doubt Root will one day be an England ATG if he keeps up but currently there are atleast half a dozen that deserve to be selected over him.

    I also do realize that Westindies record at home since 2010 is 5-11 against top 7 test nations.

    A 5-11 record is bad enough to completely discount all runs vs them? They're not Bangladesh pre-2015 Bangladesh.

    yes but its still it does not compensate fr his failures in Aus and NZ. The success rate for Root on away tours is still 33% so jury is still out till he has couple of successful away trips.
