    We generally do well here, hopefully we can go 2-0, but you never know poms were suppose to beat us at Edgbaston.

    If we are doing the horses for courses thing, then Starc slots right back in here

    Archer for Anderson for the poms if he is ruled out injured?

    Tufnell for Ali?

    I think they've got the top scientists at Oxford and Cambridge working on re-animating Jim Laker

    Harris out cheaply in the tour game, probably ensures Bancroft survives. Although I doubt they would've changed the openers anyway after just one test.

    Head is really impressing me with how he’s adapted to test cricket, I had serious doubts but happy to be proven wrong.
