    It's good to see Pooran in the lineup. That's added firepower. Don't know why they brought back Bishoo

    I hear that he will. Only change will be either Oshane or Keemo in the final XI

    Thought so. Got a feeling England might bat well with a more balanced line up.

    Burns
    Jennings
    Denly
    Root
    Buttler
    Stokes
    Bairstow
    Ali
    Broad
    Wood
    Anderson

    Is the team I think they'll pick not that I agree

    Jennings being back isn’t even the worst pick though.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    The David Moyes ' I have no idea what I'm doing' meme could certainly find a new home with Bayliss and Root.

    Very disappointing selections for the third Test, how Jennings gets back in at the expense of Foakes is beyond me! It seems as selectors our men in charge are losing sight of a number of things and come across as though they have little idea of what they’re doing other than putting the names in a hat.

    I think Jennings is the only cricketer I truly dislike

    Like from the squad they've got out there they don't have much wiggle room. Still sucks though.

    Sounds like Woakes has a chronic knee injury which they are treating with the WC and Ashes in mind. **** record away from home anyway.

    Foakes dropping was always on the cards even if I thought they'd wait until the summer. He was marganilized by dropping him to bat 8 from the third test in SL, with Moeen batting ahead of him, which was unjust imo.

    Dropping Jennings and then bringing him back one test later though just strikes me as clueless. Like where is the long term planning there?
    Already given up on teh Bairstow at 3 attempt seemingly. It's hard to try and understand what they are doing.

    Like I'm no great fan of Mark Wood but I'd back him to offer more bowling wise than Woakes or Curran if the wicket is flat as suggested, although quite how fit he will be given he hasn't play since christmas is anyones guess.

    So what happens if Jennings gets say a 50? We have to put up with him for the ashes I guess.

    Anything to keep Jonny Bairstow happy eh.What an absolutely terrible man he is.Root not much better,they’re obviously Bayliss’s two golden boys.Poor Foakes,young rookie and the easy fall guy.

    Thought they’d have learnt from dropping someone with recent success with the San Curran episode in the summer,obviously not.

    That’s going to be the problem, if Jennings does score a substantial number of runs they won’t be able to drop him and if he manages to start against the Aussies they’ll be rubbing their hands! England have backed themselves into a corner here. That’s not to say I don’t think Jennings has some ability but he shouldn’t be anywhere near the side for a while.
