Agreed. Big blow for them. Cummins is another injury prone quick. Played one test and took 7 wickets against SA so is no mug. But have they got another bowler to tie down an end?

Rashid should have been blooded in the WI but the slot was given to Tredwell (in Ali's absence) and that was one of the many contributing factors to the Woodpeckers (second) dismissal. So, it's an overdue call up. Btw, the Spain trip wasn't a training camp it was a jolly boys. Cook has even said the same himself.

A lot will rest on the bowling unit clicking. The fact that Broad has started to get some form is important, as I think he'll be a big player this series. Hopefully he'll also get some useful lower order runs too. That score in the NZ series should go someway to getting some confidence with the wood back.

Wood looked good against NZ but, by his own and the teams admission, he will fall apart at the seams (ala Ryno for the Aussies) if he plays the full five. Anderson should get 15-20 during the series and will be obdurate with the bat if called upon.

Bell is a concern for me. He has had a wretched run over the last 18 months and must be hanging by a thread (if there were more candidates other than KP) for his place in the XI. Ballance has looked good, if very dour, at first drop but this is a big big series and needs to improve on his poor showing against NZ to warrant his place or be known as a flat track bully. Like Smith on the Australian side. To me he is ordinary, but his recent stat's (obviously) tell a different story? Much like Clarke, who I have never really been a massive fan of?

If Johnson clicks for Australia then it could be horrible for England. However, it's a Duke ball we're playing with and that could be important.

I think the Aussies might edge it. But, it's made for a Stokes or Rashid to really announce themselves on the International stage.

He must have been wearing the worlds thickest flak jacket to have survived that blast.

It had its moments and probably benefited from being slap bang in the Brit Pop / Cool Brittania era and the fact that there was fuck all else on tele at that time. File alongside The Big Breakfast.

Matt, I'm resigning.

Surprised at ter Stegen. Not called upon to do much really and has looked dodgy when I've seen him, although people do seem to rate him.

I don't think he played a game in the La Liga side and didn't look very sound in the CL final, imo.

I'm not sure I'd quite compare someone, with a crass opinion, with another that beats their girlfriend to a bloody pulp tbh.

As in the Career damaging sense, Presto. [See Matt's post about Creamfields]
