    Really ? There probably are some stats out there, would be a touch ambiguous I'm sure.

    Maybe it is to replace Gabriel who had a bruised toe. 2 wickets at 35.00. All the others average is in the teens.
    I expect England to go with 2 spinners again and lose the toss.

    Hopefully, the wi dont go down this route. Stick with the tried and tested combo of 4 bowlers 6 batsmen and the keeper. Wi top order tbh didn't impress, adding an extra bowler would just weaken the already suspect batting lineup further.

    Agreed. As FBU said, Oshane should be back up for Gabriel.

    The name Oshane means "Strong one" and is of Jamaican origin (google).

    I don't think those figures reflect how well he bowled 2nd innings. His spell to root started the collapse imo.

    Their #batdeep selection policy is probably because they think the cupboard is bare when it comes to top order batsmen. Or maybe they just need to pick a couple of guys out of County Cricket (what happened to Pope?), give them 4-5 matches and see what happens.

    It was largely just an accident. They did tend to pick their best four or even five bowlers (or at least who they thought were their best four or even five bowlers) for each Test well even well into the era they had an awesome lower order in; it just so happened that a few of those guys could seriously bat.

    I think Curran's selection at times has drifted into the realm of doing it on purpose, but him aside Moeen and Stokes just make picking a "normal" eleven counter-productive a lot of the time, even ignoring their top order struggles.

    The #batshit policy needs to end. Where are all the young South Africans on county cricket? Why aren't they making the step up to the Eng test team? Quite a frustrating era for England... we r the new Pakistan.. brilliant in one game and absolute pornography in the next.

    Rashid over Leach in the recent test could be another case of doing it on purpose
