Such a shame that Hameed has lost his way at Lancs. He looked to have the temperament and technique for test cricket but can't buy a run at the moment.

Hameed made his first FC fifty this season yesterday. Still not enough to get back in though. I agree with Tighty's team, with preference for Woakes/Broad/Jimmy as the seamer's

I just hope we don't go back to Dawson. Patently obvious that Mooen is more than sufficient as a number 1 spinner. How has Duckett progressed this summer?

Hales at 5

v the west indies, in great form, pick him while he is hot

stoneman to open

trying to find numbers 2,3,5 to go with cook, root for the ashes

--

cook
stoneman
westley (worth sticking with)
root
hales
stokes
bairstow
ali
three of woakes/roland jones/broad/anderson depending who you want to rest/rotate

don't think you need 8 batters and especially not against the WI but can see we will go that way at Brisbane etc so stick with it i expect

Has Hales addressed the issues he had in his first run in the team as an opener. The danger of course is he gets runs vs the considerably weaker WI attack and then comes unstuck against the talented pace attack of the Aussies in the Winter.

Having said that, there aren't many people screaming out for selection. I still like Atherton's idea of playing Bairstow as a specialist batsmen at 5 and bringing in Foakes as a specialist keeper. With Moeen and Stokes genuine world class all-rounders, I feel we can afford that luxury.

going in 5 as opposed to facing the new ball will be a lot easier for Hales. On paper 5-8 of Hales, Stokes, Bairstow and Ali looks ideal to take the game away from teams, but the way the top order has gone Hales will be joining Root at the crease with us 30-3!

Bairstow now into the top 10 batsman in ICC world rankings, so moving him to 5 and giving someone else the gloves would be fine also.

Duckett - averaging a bit less than 40 in Div 2 isn't going to get him noticed really. I would see him as someone who'll be in and around our white-ball squads for now, not tests.

Jofra Archer is a hell of a player. Will be a fixture in the England team from 2020 onwards I reckon. Replaces Broad full time when he finally hangs them up.

Couple of coaches I have spoken to around Sussex have said he is already on their radar and they are keen to get him in the England team before the Windies do

So sad to see both the West Indies and Sri Lanka play so poorly.

With the administration of the game in both situations, improvement does not seem likely in the near future.
