It’s an interesting shout.....

Not good enough as a batsman, not good enough as a keeper and zero captaincy experience...other than that all good.

Interesting might not be the word I’d use

‘Nuts’ ‘Barking’ ‘Buffoonery’ possibly

Who does have captaincy experience?
Genuine question.
Biggest mistake we made, was to hand the captaincy to Smith when he had absolutely no experience at all. He listened to the wrong people because he didn't know better.
Captaincy is a skill.
Is there a left field(ish) possibility in County land?
Someone who has captaincy experience that would allow you to overlook the fact he may not be in the top 10 for batting or bowling?

They'd match the rest of the team that way at least

More grumbles from England about the pitches, as there were after the Ireland game, and during the World Cup.

Nothing about our techniques though.

Somerset's James Hildreth & Hampshire's James Vince are the only two that spring to mind. Both can bat at 3, too. Vince has already been ousted from the Test team, of course.

Shoulder's gone, I doubt he will bowl at all and bat at 4.

No surprise about Roy given his performances so far in the series, but can't help feeling sorry for him for two reasons.
First, because although he dropped down to number 4 at OT, coming in at 0-2 meant he was effectively opening again. Second, if he was going to perform anywhere, surely it would have been at The Oval?

Yeah, I'd ruled him for no real reason whatsoever, apart from the fact that he's got enough on his plate cementing his own position.

Kind of agree with this to a point.

If you weren't happy with him opening, but feel he can offer something at 4 try him, but you can't then sack him off on the basis he batted at 4 from the 5th ball of 1 of his 2 innings, before one of our openers has even faced a ball! Should have dropped him completely after 3rd test if that is what you're gonna do.

That said, he didn't exactly fill me with confidence when he was in, so perhaps it's just delaying the inevitable?

Stokes, and I think it will be.

He’s currently VC so absolutely no reason not to give it to him. He was doing the team talks anyway. Root is shot as Cappo
