    Woakes still easily better than Sam Curran imo

    Really don't see Sam continuing this run in the years to come. Something about his batting seems amateurish
    cricket rules brah

    absolutely no way you can drop moeen in england. his record is too good and he is a bona fida match winner on home tracks.

    94 at 31 with 4 five wicket hauls.

    I'd keep the majority of this side for that. Same top six, 3-6 in any order (it doesn't matter); Foakes, Moeen and Anderson, and two of Broad/Curran/Leach depending on conditions.

    Rashid comfortably the 3rd best spinner for me.

    Then for the summer you leave out Leach and try to find an opener that isn't Jennings to face real seam attacks.

    For me Curran ALWAYS plays. 20 years old and 7 Tests. Man of the Match and Player of the Series. Root just needs to give him more bowling. The most overs in an inning was 17 when he picked up 4 wickets.

    England are comfortably better than the wi. Therefore if I were an English selector I'd experiment with the final XI during the Wisden series. See what works and go from there.

    Possible team for first test against Aus.
    ?
    Burns
    Bairstow
    Root
    Stokes
    Buttler
    Foakes
    Ali
    Curran
    Woakes
    Anderson
    I'd personally go back to Vince and open up with him, I know he's flattered to deceive but the talent is there and nobody in CC better than him. Liked what I saw from Burns, got the Elgars about him and think will be okay. Broad back in if one of all rounders isn't fit.
    Just on the final few days of 5 weeks in Sri Lanka, great performance from our boys and what a incredible place to visit.

    Nothing that we experiment with in the West Indies is going to tell us anything about the team we will need for the Ashes.

    Yeah and writing off the windies could be a real mistake. Last time we drew 1-1 out there and they are stronger now and we are arguably weaker.
    Adders and FBU like this.

    The team in the Windies may yet include all 3 spinners depending on the tracks they prepare. Certainly we take them all in case they are needed and we know that we will only pick 1 next summer maybe 2 if Moeen is played as an all rounder and Leach plays on a potential turning track.

    As for next summer anyone saying we should drop Broad is off their heads, bowled better last summer than he has for about 2 years and is a better option than most as an out and out bowler.

    On paper much better but the game isn't played on paper. Have to treat them with the respect they deserve and go out and beat them.

    Looked a yard quicker to me in Colombo - I reckon the occasional dropping is good for him
