It wouldn't surprise me to see Woakes at 6. Probably should've kept Buttler in in my mind, he didn't actually have that heavy a World Cup.Moeen and Curran batting 6 and 7 seems arrogant as hell. It also makes the #9 role redundant. Surely they could've picked another bat?
To be fair, I reckon the debate is more Woakes vs Broad than Broad vs Curran; in the latter case Broad wins easily. Woakes is probably more on the same level right now though, especially in England, but I imagine they'd probably go with Broad in the first test I should think.I'll be suprised if this lasts deep into the 4th day tbh. I expect both sides to have a hard time with the bat once, Ireland likely twice.
Good to see Anderson is fit. Broad should obviously play tests this summer, do you think any Australian is more worried about facing Curran? Come off it.
Curran may play if we rotate the bowling when we go 3-0 up with 2 to play.Yeah I don't think there is much chance of Curran playing in the ashes, unless they do the stupid 6 bowlers thing again. The threat to Broad comes from Archer and Woakes, it is has to be two from those three really. There will probably be injuries anyway so sure they will all play at some point.
