If Leach's FC average of 25 is mediocre then what does that make Moeen's of 38?
Moeen steps up at the next level though. Also he's the subject of my favourite Barmy Army song

Well, only because Leach hasn't really had the chance to show it yet, he did outbowl him here after all.

Still unless something weird happens between now and the Ashes I'd still pick Moeen first. He does know how to bowl at home and his batting is significantly better.

So you think we'll play 3 spinners at Edgbaston for the opening Ashes test? Of course the team is going to change.......as Howe said earlier in the thread that bowling attack may very well never take the field together again.
By team, I meant the squad. Yes, Leach or Rashid might drop out since it is England but will still remain part of the core group for subcontinental tours. Jennings will definitely continue in the squad.

Don't really think Leach did outbowl Moeen here, unless you're talking about the third test.

Jofra Archer might also get a game if reports just coming in are correct and that the ECB have changed the rules regarding his ineligibility, apparently will be free to play in the world Cup.

Sad news regarding archer. It doesn't sit well with me. I love england and support them and travel to watch them overseas but as a cricket fan before anything else I would much rather see him playing for and helping the West Indies continue to improve
