    It's two and a half years away. There's a lot of cricket to be played then and with the new test championship format there is no reason at all to just get rid of Anderson now. He's still our best bowler and the idea of having him, Archer, Broad, Woakes, Curran and Stokes as our bowling attack over the next two years is exciting. You make it sound like youth can't be brought through if Anderson is there which is nonsense. Any youngsters coming in to the squad will be much better off for having him there than not.

    Anyone watched the KP documentary? Everyone’s gonna have an opinion on him but i’m Just gonna day that Swann comes across as a proper sly cunt. Wouldn’t trust him as far as I could melt his plastic face.

    Anyone done the combined Ashes squad on the BBC website?

    https://www.bbc.com/sport/cricket/49556863

    I went for:

    Rory Burns
    Joe Denly
    Joe Root
    Steve Smith
    Marnus Labuschagne
    Ben Stokes
    Jonny Bairstow
    Pat Cummins
    Josh Hazlewood
    Jack Leach
    Stuart Broad

    Couldn’t find a place for Archer with Broad having such a good series and the Aussie fast duo being so good as well. Went for Leach as he seems to extract more turn and Lyon just doesn’t seem the menace he used to be. Plus he is the man when it comes to batting to save the tail!

    He's got more than one in his locker…
     
  8. Strange how Root has tried so hard to get out & not managed it, but Burns has gone all of a sudden.

    Yeh i thought it was good and agree about Swann.

    I think its probably the first time England have had a world-class player who was also a celebrity and the ECB/other players didnt know how to handle that or react. He should have been treated similar to Ronaldo is in football. He doesn't do the hard graft and he pisses people off but at the end of the day he wins games so he has to play.
