    I suppose it's good for England that a good number of the test bats are getting a go in the ODIs before the tests begin. If the pitches are anything like the Aus and SA series they'll need every bit of practice they can get.

    Moeen will have a great time. I predict 25 wickets @ 12. Talking about the Tests of course.

    Joking aren't you. He is a pie thrower away from England.


    As for the test squad, I presume they are waiting till the Championship season is over before naming it but that shows how muddled the thinking is that anything done this week or next may get you a place on the tour.

    He did take wickets in the conditions most akin to what you'd see here. Plus I think he's improved in the last few months.

    Well in India he was terrible, he was outbowled by Rashid in India for gods sake. I hope he does well as it helps the team but given how everyone claims Anderson is useless away and won't do anything then it is fairer to assume a bloke with a dire record away will do nothing.

    They'll be very different wickets to India. Joe Root might bowl more overs than Anderson and Broad combined.

    If the rumours are right Broad won't be going. Be Anderson, Curran, Stokes, Moeen and Rashid/Leach with Root as extra spinner if needed.

    If Broad doesn't go that I would like the following team;

    Burns
    Mitchel
    Moeen
    Root
    Bairstow
    Stokes
    Buttler (wk)
    Curran
    Rashid
    Leach
    Anderson
