*Official* Fifth Test (The Oval, London) 27-31 July


International Coach
Carey is weighed down by been so awful with the bat thus far. Can't average 23 unless you're being other worldly with gloves.


Cricket Web: All-Time Legend
I have no problem with MMarsh being in the team but the fact is that he’s the third best all rounder in his own state


International Regular
Genuinely wonder if the whole furore around that dismissal has got in his head. Been struggling since then.
I don’t know what I’m basing this on but he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who’d enjoy being in the spotlight/ villain figure.


International Captain
He hasn't been great, its just hard to tell because he's being compared to Bairstow who terrible behind the stumps.
Somewhere along the road they've managed to swap roles. Bairstow was much improved at OT.

I do think the Lord's run out may have got to him, he doesn't seem like the most confrontational type. Ironic that he couldn't hit the stumps with any attempt against Bairstow at OT.
