    Malan and Vince did not exactly set the bar very high. He has done better in England than overseas but I am not sure he has faced the strongest of opponents. One century is a poor return, although he gets past 50 a reasonable amount of the time. I will be surprised if he averages close to 40 in the Ashes.

I guess another Jason, Gillespie, was highly unlikely to score a test double century but it happened.

    Over the medium to long term I cannot see Roy being a success and choosing the best openers available seems to be more likely to succeed. If I am proved wrong I will take it on the chin and admit it.
    Oh yeah, long-term it will be a failure. But hopefully by then a couple of options who might be viable long-term (Hameed, Sibley? maybe they could convince Renshaw to play for England lol) would have reached maturity and the value of winning the Ashes is so big it's probably worth it for England even if the next 12-18 months don't go swimmingly.

    Dom Sibley and Sam Northeast are playing in the England Lions side. They both have had excellent County seasons and if they do well against Australia A they should play in this test against Ireland. I am not sure whether Northeast could bat at 3, but Sibley is a young opener who seems to have taken the next step in his development in the last 12 months and England being desperate for openers surely must give him a spot.

    As far as number 3 goes, if Northeast is not suitable, find the player who has the best defensive technique and a fighting attitude and play him at 3 provided he is showing some form in county cricket. Don't worry about how quickly he scores or whether he looks good, just has to be effective.

    The England Squad is missing a few names, but includes Jason Roy.

    Joe Root (c), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Lewis Gregory, Jack Leach, Jason Roy, Olly Stone, Chris Woakes.

    An incredibly weak batting lineup.

    Burns, Roy, Denly, Root, Bairstow, Ali, Curran, Woakes in that order or something like it.

    Then one of Gregory, Stone or Leach have to play as well as Anderson and Broad

    Moeen and Curran batting 6 and 7 seems arrogant as hell. It also makes the #9 role redundant. Surely they could've picked another bat?

    Currently donít see how Broad can be in the XI. Curran and Woakes are just better in UK. Unless they get Bairstow, Buttler etc opening or in top order and then just crash their side with #batdeep

    Curran doesn't seem to have that high a ceiling as a bowler imo. Broad can still go destroyer of all that holds a bat mode so he's worth the punt.

    Without looking at scorecards didnít Curran do more than Broad last summer? Woakes absolute shoe in and Archer in for sure. Canít keep living on what was - Cook was undroppable yet could barely get a run!

    Top 8 looks like:

    1. Burns
    2. Roy
    3. Denly
    4. Root *
    5. Bairstow +
    6. Ali
    7. Woakes
    8. Curran

    Not sure about the bowlers, but I think Leach will play considering there will be four quicks. Unsure if Jimmy will be fit too.
    Stedders' Supported XI
    Tamim Iqbal, JA Burns, UT Khawaja, CA Lynn, Shakib Al Hasan, SE Marsh, +AT Carey, AC Agar, PJ Cummins, Mustafizur Rahman, JP Behrendorff.

    RIP Fardin. RIP Craigos. RIP Prince.

    Is this England's weakest ever batting lineup?

    Are they intentionally giving Ireland a sniff here?

    Doubt it but that's beside the point

    just pay him a lump sum to play the one Test, would be cool to watch




    (yes I know how dumb this is, don't care)
