I'd be surprised if that was the case. Either way I don't see the logic in not giving Rashid first dibs.

Another one gone.

Rashid must be fewmin - 23 wickets in a series then dropped for a home test where the wicket is spinning on day 2.

Absolutely. How does this guy get in team? Broad and Anderson. Old farts. But seriously, no let up. Minimum of 7 out tonight. Anil will be crying in his pillow tonight. Moeen is turning it square on day 2. Derek Underwood will be appalled. How on earth can he give away 21 runs.

Anil may well be crying into his pillow, but probably more to do with being sacked as coach of India last month.

True. Might be slightly more pressing issue for him than the state of this pitch...just.

There is a good example of what England faces with Johnny B and his batting position. De Kock is an excellent batsman, playing at 7 in tests. It is unrealistic to expect your gloveman to bat in a normal "batsman" slot, given the length of time crouching as the keeper.

I'm not too sure what point you are trying to make here but I suspect the current situation doesn't support it. Due to the match situation and the night watchman QDK is batting at 8, so it's highly likely he will bat .... Then keep wicket 10 minutes later. I don't really see how that is less advantageous than keeping, putting your feet up for a couple of hours then batting at 5, before having another rest while the tail scratch around for a few runs, then keep wicket.

Doubt whether he would be too sad to give up that poisoned chalice tbh. Dawson is making Moeen look like a top notch spinner. And a top 5 bat.

This is getting rather jumbled. QdK is better than an 8. If Bavuma goes early then he will be batting with Rabada, Philander, Maharaj and Morkel. Don't think Bairstow should keep wicket. Would bat him at 3 over Ballance any day. Root gets his preferred 4. Ali 5. Stokes 6. Buttler 7. Rashid and the rest for the last few bats. Would have been my choice. Cook and Jennings are nailed on to open for the series.

I have made a great error of mis-judgement. Fallen in with a rough crowd of rugby players who are determined to watch the Lions tomorrow. Young hooligans. Gah!

That's ok it should be over by the time the cricket starts, you just might start imagining edges that missed the bat by a foot!

Hi all.

I hope you are summering better than a Somerset batsman or a Yorkshire leggie who have all been a shambles. Somerset batsman can't average over 25 and a Yorkshire leggie can't average under 50 in the championship!

Great start to the test series. It was brilliant to see root cash in on the couple of drops and a fine knock from stokes before a great innings from moeen which again saw the last five wickets comfortably outscore the top 5. Mo averages about 50 about since that knock vs SL which given how he has been moved around is impressive. Let's hope he continues to bowl beautifully.

Dawson was a bizarre selection. I expect that when woakes is fit he will replace wood and then a specialist spinner like leach (averaging a shoddy 30 this year) might come in.

Enjoy the rest of the summer.

See ya.
