Moeen announcing retirement from tests.

Really pisses me off this one - we keep going cap in hand to him when alternates (Leach) who are better spinners are available, and he doesn’t justify his place as a batter. Now he’s retiring - the ashes issue acknowledged here, but it smacks of shit planning by England. They’ve basically called him back in for limited benefit over a limited time and stunted the long term growth of the side.

Would love it if Leach told England to FO as well now, leaving them with the likes of Dawson and Root as spinning options

Bumble not impressed with the ashes squad 😂

 

"To say that I was surprised when I saw the squad England had picked to go to Australia would be an understatement — I was absolutely flabbergasted. They've picked a team of blockers, medium-pacers and short finger-spinners. You don't exactly need to be a student of the game to know how that ends in Australia."

I am equally as baffled.  Silverwood doesn’t seem to know what he’s doing.

Sir Alastair Cook kick-started his international career following an injury related call up to an England tour to India.

Without wishing ill on any members of the England squad, wouldn't it be wonderful if Tom Abell was introduced to The Ashes this winter.

Yates, Foakes and Mahmood would’ve made my squad. Foakes is the best keeper/batsman in the country by a mile. How he gets overlooked for Bairstow is beyond me.

The postponed fifth Test between England and India will be played at Edgbaston from 1-5 July next year.

The series decider, due to be held at Emirates Old Trafford in September, was called off after India withdrew over Covid-19 concerns.

The rearranged Test will count towards the outcome of the series, which India lead 2-1.

Old Trafford will replace Edgbaston as the venue for the second Test between England and South Africa in August.
