Ashes 2019: Pick your England team for first Test v Australia

Jofra Archer, Joe Root and Jason Roy

In winning the World Cup, England proved themselves to be the best one-day side in the world.

But the Test team remain a work in progress, and there are still questions over the make-up of the side heading into this week's four-day match against Ireland at Lord's - their final game before the Ashes.

Has pace bowler Jofra Archer done enough to earn a Test debut? Can the uncapped Jason Roy translate his one-day form into the longer form of the game?

Or (whisper it) are England so short of options at the top of the order that they should ask all-time leading run-scorer Alastair Cook to come out of retirement?

Here's your chance to become a selector for the day by picking your England team for the first Ashes Test against Australia starting on 1 August at Edgbaston.

Make your choice and share it with your friends...
