Folks
warm up matches are most important for many reasons so open thread as eng will play two 2 days matches before first test

Hard to predict the team as they need to see the pitches first. Presume we will need 2 spinners so Moeen and Leach should get picked. Does Bairstow remain at 3 and is he going to be good enough there long term?

I stand by what I said earlier this year that Curran has to play all games possible from now on. Cracking young player who learns fast and Jimmy and Broad won't be there to carry the attack for much longer.

Yeah fair assessment.

England's allrounders do a lot to make the side much harder to pick than it should be. A side without Moeen Ali in it is actually quite balanced and normal looking:

1. Jennings
2. Burns
3. Bairstow
4. Root
5. Stokes
6. Buttler
7. Foakes
8. Curran
9. Leach
10. Broad
11. Anderson

I'm fairly sure that Moeen is a more valuable cricketer than half those players, being about as good a bowler as Leach and (probably) about as good a batsman as Foakes (and having won significantly more matches than either). Him making it work as a top order player would have been amazing but I can't see it working, his only value is in the places where we're actually stacked. My guess is they will play him at 7 and leave out Foakes.

I hope they don't feel as though two spinners is an absolute necessity. I could see Ali being the only spinner in an attack that works. The Windies pace attack has actually been functioning perfectly well over there in the last few years since England last toured:

Gabriel 55 wickets at 21
Holder 50 wickets at 23
Roach 23 wickets at 30
Cummins 18 wickets at 27

The spinners have actually done relatively little for them.

Yeah, I'd go for the side you posted but with Moeen instead of Leach. I do feel that Leach was the better bowler of the two in SL (not by a huge margin, but still ahead), but Moeen was still very good and even his recently diminished batting returns are a big step up from Leach's batting.

Didn't England lose a Test Match to Windies AT HOME. And only managed to draw the series prior to that.

And they think they should be Number 1 side #Embarrassing

Wouldn't this outlook make losing 4-1 to the side that lost a test to the West Indies even worse?

Where is Broad going? He is only 32. I agree Curran has to play all Tests from now on and Root has to give him more overs. Feel he is underbowled. Last 7 Tests he got 106 overs while the other two, 225 and 193 overs.

He is 32 and most fast bowlers don't go on much longer. McGrath, Walsh and Anderson are freaks.

Do WI need to play 5 bowlers realistically? Gabriel, Roach, Holder and a spinner (Bishoo, Warrican, Khan) is a top attack.

EDIT: Also Chase can be used as a 2nd spinner

Yeah West Indies genuinely have a very good bowling attack, baring a decent spinner.

Can someone explain to me why Nikita Miller has only ever played one test for the West Indies? There's probably a good reason, but 500 fc wickets at 16 is outstanding and I would have thought he would have got more chances. 10fer in his last FC match as well by the looks of it

Absolute butchering of logic.

Would Liverpool be less deserving of their title if they lost to some low slung bottom feeder nincompoop. Would that team then deserve the PL more? When you want to determine the best team, you look at their overall performance and not cherry pick one match or series which would little doubt that India is the best team in the world, with England and NZ scraping for 2nd place. Which is why comments like 'India don't deserve No.1 because we 'thumped' them 4-1' don't make any sense.

Even Head2Head India is well ahead of England by virtue of stomping England on our home grounds while leaving England fending us off by the skin of their teeth on the return leg.

True enough: and the same sort of false analogy you used when cherry picking England's passing and distant losses to the WI.

Barely gets the thing off the straight.
