      I like the look of Stoneman. Doesn't get himself tied down like Robson/Lythe/Jennings before him and looks like he belongs even if his scores so far have been modest.

      Worried about the Ashes because the Kookaburra is a pish ball and they play on some real boring flat decks.

      Our batsman get out more easily than theirs and our bowlers rely on the swing and seem.

      Not sure how the Aussies are doing though so who knows?

      Our long batting line-up will ceryainly be needed just worry about where 20 wickets are coming from.

      The aussies drew 1-1 in Bangladesh and to be honest their batting is a bit flimsy. Just feel Australia's greater pace will be the difference

      Different ball game though isn't it on those spinning wickets in the sun continent. Bangladesh beat England confortably over there not so long ago I think.

      Silly from Hales and ridiculous from Stokes.

      The day before the ashes squad is announced too.

      Can understand the Ballance recall but Vince? Awful last summer for England and unlike Ballance he hasn't had a great county season either. Shame Wood wasn't deemed fit enough to go, would have been a very handy player to have considering the conditions down there.

      All in all, a pretty weak squad. Hard to know where the Aussies are at either though, they've been on the subcontinent a while now and I think their current series with India doesn't have any test matches in it.

      Wood will go with the lions to Australia and be getting game  time, should he prove it and England need him he will be pulled across.

      Vince I think is a gut call, good strike maker, especially off the back foot, struggled in English conditions knicking off against the swinging ball.
      The kooka doesn't swing as much beyond the first ten overs

      Over 11 - England 18-5 (Ali 0, Bairstow 0).

      At this rate they might not get to 50

      Steve Smith - immensely talented player but this coupled with that DRS 'brain fade' stuff against India will tarnish him forever. Not sure how he can continue as captain really?

      Steve Smith really has no alternative now. Hes got to stand down which is quite funny cos its the decision Australia really dont want to make.

      South Africa have really got into these fellas heads in a way our lot didn't manage.

      The meaning of the series less on paper than an ashes test but i think South Africa got them desperate.
