The Cricket.

Post by Neville Bartos »

Why is Stokes batting 4 in a test side?
ODI or Twenty20, fine, but test cricket?
Unless you can bat like Jacques Kallis, and Stokes averages closer to 35 than 55, an all-rounder should be at 6 or 7 in the test team.
Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

Yeah spose Pope should come in before,maybe even Buttler.....Woakes is that 6/7 man now i think...good player,done brilliant
this test...
Maybe Root wants to make sure he has knock with him.... :lol:

Strong looking side now I reckon...but they like making it hard for themselves..but be nice to get off to a really good start

Great win for England.

Seem to have a great mentality at the moment.We have turned around two Tests this summer, from defeat to victory.

I'd play Stokes at 6, keeper at 7 and Woakes at 8.
I don't get the love in for Buttler in tests. He's played 50 odd, averages 31 and has one ton. Not to mention his keeping is shite.
I think Bairstow and Foakes are better suited to tests.
Michael Vaughan was having a good old wank after his innings yesterday. Like I said I don't get it.
