Jonny Bairstow

Has it been announced who will keep wixket for England in the third Test yet?

On the issue of Bairstow, I wonder if he will be under pressure for his place straight away if he fails to make an impact. Ballance has four bad matches and was dropped, so I hope Bairstow is given longer to settle into the side and show what he can do. He's looked like a much improved player for Yorkshire this season.

I imagine it will be Buttler. Bairstow is there to bat 5.

I wonder if they will consider sharing the role, one innings each. Would probably disrupt their rather but would help to avoid back injuries.

I think Buttler will keep wicket throughout.

Giving Bairstow the gloves would be idiotic.

So it might happen.

Personally I think it would be fair enough to give Bairstow the gloves. It would be selecting Buttler as a specialist test match batsman that would be idiotic.

Yes, Bairstow could probably do the job as well as Buttler but it is only keeping that keeps Buttler in the side.

Bairstow. Wasn't he the guy exposed by the WINDIES bowlers as being weak to short pitched stuff? Has he been working on that issue?

No, I think he's just ignored it, on the grounds that no one in the Australian team is as quick or as good as Kemar Roach ;-)

He's much improved now, as was seen in the final ODI against New Zealand.

That's been overblown massively.

The spell Roach bowled on that occasion was enough to trouble even the best of batsmen - something which Roach used to be capable of.

Further to that the manner in which he played Steyn and Morkel a couple of summers ago somewhat counteracts that percieved issue.

Claiming a batsmen is weak to genuinly quick bowling is futile really considering bowling of the calibre would trouble even the worlds best.

I saw that spell from Roach. The fastest I've seen live, he also roughed up Bell too if I remember. Not sure it has much relevance now. Later in the year Bairstow smashed Steyn and Morkel around at lords.

Bairstow in as a specialist bat, surely......?!?! He would have still been in the England side if he were established batsman so bringing him back in unestablished AND asking him to keep as well would be stupid.

His last 6 Tests have all been against the aussies, 252 runs @ 22.91 and whilst he has fared slightly better in England than down under (29.00 vs 12.25) it is poor enough he shouldn't be distracted by keeping duties.

That said, Buttler is only averaging 14.50 this series/vs the aussies with 4 catches. No reason Bairstow can't relieve Buttler for a session or two.

Got him again fending the short ball. He should probably get out of the way.

Indeed, as would many others who had got the same delivery.

There's only so many times you can make excuses for the guy. We shall see what happens for the rest of the ASHES.

Indeed we will. It seems that many see reasons rather than excuses, though.

We will but he's been out once, to a really good ball. It's hardly QED that he's no good against short pitched bowling, any more than that this test proves that Steve Smith is a rubbish batsman outside off stump and Clarke a busted flush. In fact, there's rather more evidence for the latter two assertions from this game, as they've both been out twice.

Hairs tows 74 went under the radar at Trent Bridge. A very tidy knock that took the game away from Australia. Hopefully this will give him the confidence to kick on.

Hopefully, although it was a bit of a curate's egg with great crunching shots combined with some bizarre ones and a tame, but fitting, end. He never really looked settled, but then only one man ever did during the test.
