    I'm not convinced he'll be able to stay fit regularly enough whilst keeping his quality up in the long term to do that, even though I do hope he does.

    Broad 36 -> 28
    Anderson 37 -> 29
    Flintoff 47 -> 31
    The first two are front line quicks, while Flintoff basically played the role of a front line quick because he was that good. I think Stokes is useful but certainly not in that group. He is a better batsman than Flintoff it has to be said.

    Yes and I think he can be more valuable to England and the team can get more out of him as a batting allrounder at number 6 rather than as a frontline seamer who bats.

    England usually always have 3 quality seamers, if Anderson is injured or retires, they have Broad, Finn and Wood.

    England don't always have someone who can blast double centuries like that. Cook and Root will heave a sigh of relief if they know they have someone else who can score centuries.
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber
