    Pretty much what I would go for too, fitness permitting. Half a chance Jhye Richardson could find his way into the starting XI, but for now I would stick with the same attack that was so effective against England last time

    Guess the contentious ones might be Smith and Warner returning, Warner in particular. Would have been more questions over Starc if he hadn't bagged some poles in that last test. Also could argue Hazelwood vs Richardson to some extent.

    As far as I am aware there are also some injury concerns around all three of Smith, Warner and Starc.

    Harris vs Burns is still a question in my eyes, and while Head made some runs last test I think there's still some valid questions about his technique long term.

    Easy choice, have Richardson as 12th. Don't mess with it for anything stupid.

    Suspect England will change very little except for the Curran/Woakes choice, and the top three will be made of two poor saps making runs in county in addition to Keaton Jennings.

    So weird how England are favourites and we haven't a clue what their batting order is going to look like or who the third seamer is going to be, meanwhile Australia has a much more obvious XI yet most here would say they'll probably lose.

    Seeing more and more sanctimonious articles and comments about why Smith and Warner shouldn't be picked popping up over the interwebz. Just stfu.

    Burns and Pope are Australian players. But why you'd want to bat a leg spinner at number 3 is beyond me.

    All jokes aside, is this the first time that two opening batsmen from different sides share the same name?
