This is more the Sun saying "don't blame us for losing the Ashes".

On which note, any news or whispers as to how the Stokes case is developing?

I so want him to be there for the Ashes.

If you're good at cricket, you get a seat. Everyone else has to stand.

Swap woakes and Finn and you're about bang on!

very jealous, its a great stadium by all accounts and the atmosphere will be electric

englands chances?

i would say im generally a very optimistic england fan. I think the series comes down to cook and root, both or one of them needs to emulate what cook did in 2010/11.
i think the bowling will go fine, as their batting can massively rely on smith and warner. and the middle order of Jonny B and Ali (stokes maybe) will score runs. It comes down to how the fragile top 5 plays starc. He can leak runs and often sprays it around a bit

what do we think the side will be for the Gabba? i have a horrible feeling that they will go with Ballance

My side would be.... (assuming Stokes is not there)

Cook
Stoneman
Vince (scored runs in the warm up and plays well off the back foot, plus lengthens the order with root staying at 4)
Root (c)
Malan
Bairstow
Ali
Woakes
Ball
Broad
Anderson


If Stokes was there I would swap him for Malan and Foakes comes in to keep instead of ball

Thoughts?

Steven Finn will miss the remainder of England’s tour of Australia after scans revealed that he has a torn left knee cartilage.
 
The Middlesex seamer sustained the injury during practice last week in Perth and will now return to the UK in the 48 hours where he will meet a knee specialist to ascertain whether he will have an operation.
 
England will announce his replacement for the rest of the tour in due course.

Good news imo! Think he's useless!

Replacements? Plunkett surely? Adds something on Aussie wickets

Curran looks like he has a bit about him, based on the white ball stuff I've seen of him. Big step up though, and behind the likes of Overton and Ball in the pecking order.

Some pretty decent bowling figures from Suranga Lakmal for SL against India this morning.

Six overs, six maidens, three for none.

Beteveryday have an early payout on Ashes matches.

If the team you backlead by 100 or more after the first innings, they'll pay you out as a winner.

That's very decent isn't it?

Yes very good. Excellent if your side wins the toss and bats as they are likely to do every game except possibly Adelaide for the pink ball test

The Australian Test selectors have lost it, writes Gideon Haigh (probably the best of the Aussie writers)

Any chance we could copy and paste this as I cannot seem to access this article without signing up for a subscription to an Australian newspaper.
