    Ashes 2019 England Squad

    I know, I know, it's over a year away but how would you guys like the England side to shape up? Who should and should not be playing?

    My team/squad may be a bit of fantasy but this is how I'd like to see England shape up.

    1. A. Hales - a hard hitting opener is needed
    2. K. Jennings - obviously based on potential rather than recent performances
    3. J. Root - number 3...
    4. D. Malan
    5. J. Bairstow wk
    6. M. Ali - needs to be higher up and hopefully burdened with less bowling
    7. B. Stokes - hopefully cleans up his act and is more useful with the ball
    8. C. Woakes - needs both his batting and bowling to improve and am making this selection on the basis that it will happen
    9. A. Rashid - well duh
    10. J. Porter - again based on the potential and how good a season he has next year
    11. T.R. Jones

    The squad is rounded off by Liam Plunkett, Tom Curran, Jack Leach, Haseeb Hameed and Rory Burns.

    So you're picking a team to lose 5-0 at home - interesting idea but I think that we'll pick a much stronger (and more logical) side then that.

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    If Cook makes it to 2019, he will break Sachin's record.

    Another 50 Tests, ~90 innings, averaging 45 would take him to 16000.

    Guys there's an Ashes subforum
