Not being a dick here but in regards to the test side what is there to be positive about?

We dont have any proven openers. We dont have a number 3/4 depending on where you bat root. Our middle order are all one day players and we dont have a spinner

ODI team is tremendous but the test side is rank average for me
Depends what you your definition on rank average is, not many better test teams better than us imo, so don’t agree.

For example you have mentioned the opening batsman.

Don’t think there is another country in the world who are performing well with their opening batsman.

Nothing wrong with middle order been one day players as long as they can transform that form into the test arena as Stokes has.

We will not be facing quality bowlers as good as the Aussies every test so quietly confident our middle order will score runs against other opposition.

I do agree about the spinner, however a fit bowling attack of Anderson,Broad and Archer could be devasting.

The emergence of Archer means there is plenty to be positive about imo.
