Englands squad for the ireland test

  1. Joe Root the captain and best batter.
  2. Moen Ali short of form Bess or Virdi should have been picked instead.
  3. Anderson Our best bowler a shoo-in if fit.
  4. Bairstow should definitely be in the team it’s just where he bats.
  5. Stuart Broad shouldn’t play Gregory, Woakes, Curry and Anderson are better.
  6. Burns, he did enough last winter and this summer in the championship to assure himself of a place in the ashes.
  7. Sam Curran may come under threat from the pace of wood and Archer. Personally, I feel Gregory has performed better so he should open the bowling in the ashes. Woakes and Archer then first change.
  8. Denly should not be in the team. Lots of better batsmen around.
  9. Gregory in superb form should open the bowling with Anderson.
  10. Leach Englands best spinner last year should be in the team if we are going to play a spinner.
  11. Roy is in the greatest form of his career will and should open in the ashes and this test.
  12. Olly Stone should not be in the team Wood, Jofra and Jamie Overton are a lot better. 13
  13. Chris Woakes Mr consistent to come on first change for me.

I know some of the team from the ashes and in hear as they are being rested so this would be my XI going into the first ashes test.

  1. Burns
  2. Roy
  3. Root he has to find some bottle and bat there.
  4. Bairstow
  5. Stokes
  6. Butler (keeper)
  7. Woakes
  8. Gregory
  9. Archer
  10. Leach
  11. Anderson

    1. I agree that Root at three would solve a lot of problems.

      I wouldn’t have picked Denly but he’s hit a couple of 150+ scores in division one so has responded to WC axing in the right way. Still think that there was room for another actual batsman in the middle order not just a multitude of all-rounders.


      1. It would
        I agree denly has done well but he scored his 150 plus score’s on flat pitches, not pitches with a but in it. Bairstow at 4, not keeping and Stokes at 5, not bowling that much I would say they are ’actual batsman’ that are so fit that if needed they can do more
