England test lineup
 
 
Pretty weak really.

Jennings and Ballance not test players.
Dawson doesn't look ready either.

Typical weak mentality as well. Game will be over before end of today.

Agree.
The top 3 batsmen are left handers and the 2 SA opening bowlers are especially good against lefties.

I gather that opener Hussein is in crap form and cannot be considered. Let's hope he gets his finger out in time for the Ashes.
Otherwise the scientists may have to clone Rooty.
How's his brother doing ?

Pretty much agree with that. Jennings is terrible.

Stokes is a number 7 as well, not a 6. He'll have one good innings now and again but he doesn't have the mentality to bat at 6. If you do bat him at 6, you need Rashid, not Dawson. That is completely perplexing.

Woakes will be back in for Wood (whose been poor) soon though so I'd leave Stokes at 6 with Ali, Dawson, Woakes and Broad to follow. I think that's fine.

Its the top order that needs sorting out, 1-3, and that includes Cook.

Root may have to put himself back in at 3. Ballance is clearly not the answer to any question.

Rashid should be in instead of Dawson.

My 2nd Test Team:

Stoneman, Cook, Westley, Root, Bairstow, Alli, Stokes, Rashid, Broad, Wood, Anderson

Stoneman has to be given a go now.

Can't see the point in flipping Stokes and Ali in the batting order personally.

I like stoneman too but a test batsman needs a run, Jennings does not look the part but it's only fair to give him this series. Shame about hameed he looked the part 12 months ago

I meant Hameed who wasn't in form.
I'll check with Google next time.
