England are hoping realistically that Roy can get through the Lyon. If he can do that, he is the only capable batsmen who could feasibly open the batting who can take on Lyon and put pressure back on the Aussies seamers to have to do the bulk of the work.

Its a big if however.

Smith is a major concern for me. England struggled to bowl that well to him in the ODIs and his unusual style of play makes him effective. Also seems to relish the hostile environment he will face. Warner has always had issue outside off stump and trust our bowlers to expose this more than they can expose and faults in Smiths defense.

You don't rate Joe Root or think he could get a big score?

He’s out of form and can only bat at one end anyway.

Granted its a different format of the game but Joe Roots last innings for England was the worst he had ever played for England, and in a W/C final. Mentally, the World Cup must have drained him and now into an Ashes series will be tough

It's an interesting point.

I suspect the Aussies will be delighted at Root coming in at 3. There's a good chance it'll be within the first 40 minutes and the ball will still be new-ish. All of a sudden, England are 23-2 with Burns & Denly at the crease and Roy & Root back in the hutch. I'd fancy my chances from there if I were an Aussie <<shudder>>.

Agreed. England probably thought however why hide your cards, get out there and if Root and an opener can survive until lunch each day then we will be set.

Yeah, the difference between Root coming in at 3 & 4 is probably only 3 runs & five minutes

Judging by the way he was talking yesterday, Archer won't be risked.
