What's Bairstow doing. Let Root get another ton, you plonker!
He's a part-timer for his 1st class side Wellington. Bowls a bit because he is captain. I feel sorry for him. Should never have been picked.Bracewell just looks like a really good part timer doesn't he. Gets it to turn and bounce a decent amount but also too much filth at times
I would like to think there is method in the madness and they won't just slog everything. Bairstow's hundred in the first innings was different to his two 4th innings thwackings, with a lot of steers to fine leg and third man. And even when he was hooking Henry for back to back sixes I don't think he'd be doing that if Henry wasn't serving it up there.Genuinely interested to see if England keep playing like this when confronted with a more muscular bowling attack next week.
Will Young is a very good middle order bat who is opening; Michael Bracewell is a standard 1st class middle order bat who is batting 8 and bowling part-time off spin. Previously Rachin Rachin was our no 7 - the best young opener in the country playing as a SLA allrounder.Drop Will Young.
