Whatever it takes!!!
England can still win the trophy AND stop India getting to the WTC finals. Plenty to play for, if they can keep their spirits up.

They cant drop Bairstow after just 1 game, even though he looked so bad. And I presume Wood and Stone can play and they will rest A & B, for whatever reason.

their ego won't let them pick bess

they'll pretend that root is better than bess and go in with root as second spinner in a track that will spin but not this much

ali's flight back to india leaves on 26 feb so maybe they'll let him play since he has already had covid

ali is unlikely so maybe they'll just play one out of virdi or parkinson if they're still in india

Bairstow shouldn't have been picked. One game or not, he did nothing to change that. I'd rather bat Broad at 3 than him.
 

Lillian Thomson

International Coach
If Broad or Anderson are “rested” after bowling 19 overs between them the entire selection committee should be sacked on the spot.

So Broad hasn't taken a wicket in his last 50 overs ? England are really going Rahane with this guy aren't they.

Wood better pick any day.

Also with the Chennai and Motera DN match results, an intelligent curator would realize that the home batsmen can't play spin to save their lives.

Best bet would be to prepare a flat road with good true bounce which will retain pace throughout the match. In other words a traditional Aussie wicket. That's the only thing on which these pampered souls can put a bat to the ball it seems.

Such a colossal disappointment of a series after one of the best ever. English batsmen have been nothing more than club class barring Root. And their selectors have mud instead of brains inside their skulls to play 3 fast bowlers on this wicket. This lineup is probably the worst to visit this country in ages. I guess even Afghanistan would put up a better fight with the bat. This is almost like India bowlers have to turn up and they will roll over.

Not thr best advert for test cricket this series. And no way we are scheduling more DN tests in India. It is a complete waste of time, resources and makes cricket become its bizzaro version.
