    Why are there calls for Plunkett? When he came back he was better than before but he's not quite a test bowler imo.

    Woakes may not be either but at least he can form a beautiful engine room with Moeen at 8 and 9.

    Still better than Jordan though. Must have done something wrong in UAE to get dropped when we lose 2 anyway.

    Glad Bell has gone, about time. Was great to watch when on song but he hasn't hit the right note for a long time now.

    Looking at our squad I think we are going to get hammered. Will rely totally on Cook, Root, Broad and Anderson. Someone else has to step up.

    Shame Bell is finally gone. Would've loved to see him get taken apart by Steyn abd philander.

    Should be a cracking series. Didn't know it started so soon. Hyped.

    I have some serious questions about the squad though. Why is Samit Patel in it? And Plunket must've bowled terribly in the UAE nets if he could make a squad over there with Finn and Wood in it but not one in SA without them.

    Compton better score heavily on this tour after a couple of years of people moaning he was wrongly dropped. Not expecting anything from him though as I don't think he is that good.

    Nah, there's a difference between thinking he shouldn't have got dropped for the Ashes two and a half years ago and thinking he's going to dominate in SA as a top order player next month. All he had to do in the Ashes to justify getting picked ahead of Bairstow would've been score two fifties, and Root might have done better in the middle order too.

    I don't think anyone had really considered the possibility of him getting a recall either.

    Merge was inevitable though. You're stupid for not realising that.

    Big moan incoming but the selectors have no idea what they are doing.

    Bell should have been dropped before the start of the india series - if (and it's what they've done) they were going to drop him after playing allright on the India tour. Bell has always been average in Asia.
    Taylor was always the better bet in Asian conditions. Every mother****er could see it. They basically wasted two tests playing lots of ****. Taylor should have been in from the first test or they should have stuck with Bell through this SA tour. I'd expect Bell to easily outscore Taylor in SA.

    Bell can't have any complaints about being dropped though. The only reason he would keep getting selected was the shortcomings of others and the practicalities of the top order. His performances weren't up to it (but you could say that of half the team)

    Buttler selection? Either they're bringing him straight back into the team in which case they've dropped a guy for one test, will screw over Bairstow, and will still bring someone back into the team who isn't up to test cricket - or they've selected him to be reserve wicketkeeper which is perverse given the schedule that players who play 3 formats for England. He's better off resting in the short term (or broadening his experiences and playing Big bash) and staying fit and keen for 50 over and t20 where he is a real asset rather than sticking around the test team where he is kind of average at best anyway.

    Compton? Well once they drop Bell they had to bring a Compton/Carberry back to bat in the top 3. I'd have just stuck with Bell because him averaging 30 is basically the best you can hope of Compton.

    What exactly has Ballance done to get back in the team?


    Bayliss has done a few interviews and he doesn't exactly inspire confidence that he knows much about his players. I don't think they're doing a very good job of playing to the players strengths right now.

    Dale Steyn must be licking his lips, and possibly other parts of his anatomy, looking at the potential batting line up.
