What a garbage squad ECB sent to Oz.

True though the game is excellent. Difficulty curve is superb. Want an easy introduction, pick Australia. Want to be a master legend, play as England.
Still waiting for the PC price to drop to sensible level.

You're absolutely right, but who else was there to take? Difficult for county players to take the step up and not many worse places to try than down under!

At least the one-day squad is brilliant, just hope they're not peaking too soon. Morgan's lucky he's captain, otherwise I think he'd have been dropped a while ago.

Maybe now that his country has gained test status he wants to go play for them and his heart ain't in it any more if it ever was anyway that is?

Hales is another one who don't care about England and is being carried by a successful side. He should be sent on his way back to Nottingham and lobbed in the River Trent once he's back there for good measure.

Agree with you about the concern of peaking too soon but at the same time you'd rather have them in the habit of winning than a run of defeats as we approach summer next year.

Sorry but who else was there to take, Lanky was spot on.

There's an argument says the test side couldn't have done any worse if they had dropped a few regulars in favour of some of the ODI boys but if they had and it didn't work everyone would have been on them about that.

Stupid penalty shoot out T20 cricket is taking over the game because all them sub continentals love it unfortunately test cricket will struggle to stay relevant from now on, even ODI's will feel the squeeze because of this T20 nonsense.

You just knew after the Summer that England would struggle in Australia.

I'm not sure Root is a real leader but perhaps time will prove me wrong.

As for the ODI side, fantastic change from the last world cup

I'm not sure if the test squad has been named for NZ yet but I'd look upon it as a fantastic opportunity to try out a few other players.

We need to try another opener for when Cook retires. Stoneman has done ok without setting the world alight.
We need a no.3 and no.5 Vince and Malan didn't do their chances any harm against Aus, they certainly weren't the worst, but there are fundamental errors in both their games. Are there a couple of other fringe players who could have a go?
The biggest worry (and therefore needs to be addressed asap) is who's going to replace Jimmy and Broad? Broad has completely lost it now. He has one good innings which seems to buy him another 10 tests but outside of English conditions, he's hopeless. We can't rely on Jimmy forever!

I agree with what you say about the ODI side, prefer them to be on a series of wins, definitely. I feared they were only going to win the series 3-2 when we lost the 4th ODI and then didn't bat all that well in the 5th. But what a great bowling performance. I want to be as ruthless as the Aussies, batter opponents 5-0!

Spot on about Broad, his ship has definitely sailed which is a shame but I can't see him getting dropped. It's most irritating he's been allowed to hang around long enough to overtake Beefy's wicket haul, shouldn't have got anywhere near that tally!

Unfortunately he'll keep his place until someone like that South African kid from Surrey who got the fifer the other day proves themselves in the test arena over a number of tests. My concern is they won't have the patience to stick with a kid for a couple of series giving them that opportunity to push Broad and even Jimmy out NZ away is the perfect series to blood the newbies or even give previous fringe failures another run out you called that so right!

Agree with you about Root but he was the obvious choice and I'm not really convinced there is anyone else with those leadership skills required ginger nut Jonny possibly or Moeen but nobody else as far as I can see.

Think the New Zealand bowlers are more talented than the Australia's.

The series will be very tough.

Criticism of Joe Root is harsh but unfortunately, fifties dont win matches.

Criticism is par for the course if you're captain of a losing England team, especially one that just got gubbed so resoundingly by Aussie. He was bound to have his batting scrutinised seeing he weren't getting them hundreds we've become accustomed to but I must agree with a lot of the pelters he got for his captaincy too. We was on the back foot from day one so I get the rabbit caught in the headlights scenario but England captains ain't meant to get caught in those headlights.

The captaincy clearly has had a negative impact on his batting and perhaps his poor batting form has got to him as captain. Unfortunately the more you put it like that the more it makes you think that it would be far more beneficial for the team and for him if someone else took the captaincy
Wish this had a PSVR mode
Are we taking about the game or reviewing the actual real squad ?

Yeah, I hope Tom Curran gets a run now, he's aggressive and a definite wicket taker. Seems like a good bloke to have around the team. It wouldn't have made a huge difference to the Ashes outcome, but boy do I wish Stokes hadn't been such a bloody idiot in Bristol! I hope Woakes and Wood can sort themselves out too, they could be the ones to take over from Jimmy and Broad. Wood has got some definite pace, it's what we were missing in Australia, but he lacks consistency. We also need a decent spinner. They can't seem to find one since Swanny. Ali's not a full-time spinner and got found out against the Aussies!
