That means Root, Buttler and Stokes (for he has now arrived, no mistake) at the core as players who have demonstrated they have the aptitude and toughness to take their performance to the next level.

Build around them and we have a chance of doing far better than the embarrassment Down Under.
What if Stokes has another succession of poor performances?

The building around thing is spoken of much in the media but is a myth, really.

Performances need to be sustained.
