Cricket Thread - The Ashes

Recommended Posts

alternate for entire series? Interesting, I suppose it saves one each time from having to travel. I could see us looking a bowler light when they inevitably aren't quite fit enough to play every match of the sequence, but maybe that's all a necessary part of the transitional plan. Did he have much to say about solving the batting/keeping dilemmas?

He said selectors may have to make a "big call" and leave one of their three wicketkeeper-batsmen - Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler and Ben Foakes - out of the squad, and should also introduce younger batsmen such as Dominic Sibley, Zak Crawley or Ollie Pope to their top six.

Been saying that for a while. Sibley has to open with Burns.

 

Great first game in Finals Day.
