    Watched all the series

    Willey will miss out

    It’s unfair because Denly is purely in as he’s mates with Smith

    Good cricketer but he doesn’t fit in

    The point is if Rashid breaks down on a morning, they won’t pick Denly they’d just play another seamer as they can all bat

    Good series but biggest questions for me are
    whether

    1) England are flat track bullies.
    2) The ICC will produce flat tracks like we just saw, or something more sporting.

    Bring on the Main Event.

    It’s a tough call however Willey misses out for me

    England are the best side in the world on all pitches, look at their last 11 series

    Windies series was far from convincing, as was the one off in Ireland.

    That said, I agree with you. The mental strength seems to be there even if conditions aren't ideal.

  8. I am not sure why people can't just enjoy that England have their best one day side ever!

    Missed out, you should have stuck in a 'run out' as well :)
     
  10. Agreed. If the pitches are flat we'll be favourites to beat anyone, but if there's something in the wicket I think we will find in tough. I thought this Pakistan bowling attack and fielding unit were very poor tbh.

    So sounds like Dawson in for Denly, Archer for Willey and Vince in for Hales

    It's incredibly tough on Willey who has been a massive part of our rise, but Curran looks like he has done enough.

    Willey just lost the ability to swing it slightly

    So if that is correct:

    Dawson
    Archer
    Vince
    Bairstow
    Roy
    Buttler
    Morgan
    Root
    Stokes
    Rashid
    Moeen
    Woakes
    Curran
    Wood
    Plunkett
     
  13. Ageing trundler

    Ageing trundler Central Defender

    A fit Wood (how many times have we said that) would edge out Plunkett for me. Otherwise there are 10 nailed on to start with Vince, Dawson and Curran as back up.

    Some team on paper

    Wood is ahead of Archer for me, bowling quicker than him.
     
  16. Silly Point

    Silly Point Midfield

    Archer has all the variations mind

    SAFC 83 Midfield

    I've got a feeling Curran might force his way in. Loves to bowl at the death but more importantly his batting was big for us in the Pakistan series. Really strong team whichever way they go.

    thats the challenge to these lads, a lot of them can bat, but its about doing it consistency to the point where you can rely upon it
