    That is a good top 8 now without ever seeing Campbell bat.

    Braithwaite
    Campbell
    Bravo
    Hope
    Hetmyer
    Chase
    Dowrich
    Holder
    Warrican
    Roach
    Gabriel

    Would have much rather seen cornwall instead of Warrican to strengthen batting and possibly bowling too.

    Burns
    Jennings
    Bairstow
    Root
    Buttler
    Stokes
    Foakes
    Ali
    Curran
    Broad
    Anderson

    Gutted leach probably won't play the first test but Foakes really threw a spanner in the works with how he batted and kept in sl and can't really be left out

    Agreed unless it really turns!

    In theory it's decent but Shai Hope has not kicked on and Kraigg has had a real slump. So it's still doesn't fill me with confidence.

    Campbell is a talent, he has lots of shots and almost always gets starts at a high strike rate. He then inevitably gets himself out.

    That side looks pretty exciting, certainly in terms of batting. It also strikes me that they might be good for a couple of collapses though and might find themselves in early trouble.

    Campbell is a pace bowling specialist.

    He will crumble against spin.

    He's technically pretty good against spin and plays very nice sweeps and reverse sweeps.

    His shot selection against spin, however, leaves a lot to be desired. He's an infuriating batsman.

    I've seen a lot of criticism of the squad at how there isn't more guyanese players in there as they dominate the fc league. Who is really knocking on the door to play tests or are they just a strong all round team with no one player standing out.
    Tage seems to score runs but I doubt they will open him with kraigg as they both score quite slow

    SCC is best placed to talk on this. Guyana is an excellent team with the best tactical captain in Leon Johnson and a great coaching team. Not too many superstars though outside of Hety.

    The other Guyanese who should be in is Keemo Paul. Otherwise Chanderpaul Hemraj won't be miles off selection as an opener and Bramble should really be the back up keeper ahead of Hamilton given his form.

    Convinced he will not be convincing at 3. Deserves a shot at it though after the ton in Sri Lanka.

    England bowled out for 284 but carry on batting to close the day on 312/10.

    What manner of cricket is this and why on earth have we allowed it?

    Sounds like our seamers bowled well, particularly 20 year old Chemar Holder. Best hide him before he gets poached as well!

    Love seeing Chemar Holder bowl well, came over here to play a few games for Port and bowled great, too much of a handful for you average grade batsman

    Great to hear. He seems very promising and can move the ball at decent pace.

    Seems the way they go now, touring side bat the entire day and then bowl the next day.

    Not in our matches! Cameron in bending over backwards for ECB shocker.....

    Even the test venues are in places England will be surrounded by their own fans.
