    That'd be a win/win situation.

    Possibly underestimating the workload of wicketkeeper-batsmen. They tend to train longer and harder than most.

    Yeah fair enough. Still even he's a weakness as a Test #6 especially with a long tail and a bad Top 3.

    Agreed that the ENG batting order is weak but they are resting their players for the big series to come. For Ireland, this team quite enough. If ENG lose(gut opinion - they won't) also, they won't mind this. Now, its important to rest your key players. Few months back, the whole world has waited for "WINTER IS COMING" but now they are waiting for "ASHES IS COMING"

    There's something a bit odd about bringing in new Test playing nations and then only playing four day matches. It's hard to see any real logic to it except implying that they're not good enough.

    I'll be suprised if this lasts deep into the 4th day tbh. I expect both sides to have a hard time with the bat once, Ireland likely twice.

    Good to see Anderson is fit. Broad should obviously play tests this summer, do you think any Australian is more worried about facing Curran? Come off it.

    To be fair, I reckon the debate is more Woakes vs Broad than Broad vs Curran; in the latter case Broad wins easily. Woakes is probably more on the same level right now though, especially in England, but I imagine they'd probably go with Broad in the first test I should think.

    Is there any chance that Leach could usurp Moeen as the main test spinner? Have a feeling if they both play against Ireland Leach will be treated as the main one in the side.

    Yeah I don't think there is much chance of Curran playing in the ashes, unless they do the stupid 6 bowlers thing again. The threat to Broad comes from Archer and Woakes, it is has to be two from those three really. There will probably be injuries anyway so sure they will all play at some point.

    Going to Day 1. Should be all over by tea. Can't see this lot making many against Adair and Simi Singh.

    Curran may play if we rotate the bowling when we go 3-0 up with 2 to play.

    Thinking about it if Woakes plays instead of Broad and Ali plays as we're expecting him to, then this becomes an arguably even more ridiculous batting lineup in terms of depth. One of Woakes/Ali would be 9 and Archer would be batting at 10 with a 30+ FC batting average

    Having 6 #7s doesn't make up for a paper thin top order though.

    It kinda does, in some circumstances. Has been the basis of what success we've had in the last few years.

    Not much we can do about having no top order options.
