I would prefer Foakes to Buttler as our keeper moving forwards, but I don't think it's crazy that having selected Buttler for Southampton they don't want to drop him after just one Test. It's not like there is a returning player to fit in (a la Root/Denly) and it wasn't as if Buttler was a total liability, in must-drop sort of form. He just underwhelmed a little, which is more or less his baseline level as Test keeper.Silverwood has stated that Jos Buttler's place is safe. I think most pundits are giving him the series, I think most punters on here aren't.
Essentially we didn't really learn anything new in Southampton so I don't think that Test should change how we rank them. If the selectors & pundits thought Buttler was the better shout for the first Test then I can understand why they would still think that, while those who already thought Foakes was the better also wouldn't have been convinced otherwise.
Yeah I did that too. You can make a case for any combination of the main 5 quicks in contention really, so may as well pick one with meme value for a meaningless poll.On the BBS selector thing I went with three "okes" partly for the lols but mainly as I think it is the correct selection moving forward.
