The game reduced from 4 days to 3 . . . .but surely one needs to see if the rest of the squad can play 4 days?
To have Bairstow at 8 and Pope at 5 in ‘this warm up game displays muddled thinking.What on earth is Root thinking unless they have taken Bairstow to be the drinks waiter !!!
Good to seeJonny B score some runs as well. Better than other Wks .
Experience – Broad or AndersonSpeed – Wood or Archer3rd Seamer – Woakes or CurranSpinner – Leach or ParkinsonAnderson, Wood, Woakes, Parkinson?
i think the plus from this warm up game from england's perspective is anderson!, he looks ready,i expect them to go with the top six & choose between bairstow & buttler for the gloves, personally i would give pope the gloves & bring crawley in,burnssibleydenlyroot(c)stokes(vc)crawleypope(wk)leacharcherbroadandersoni'd go this although risky with ill players but!.
Whoever gets picked duncan, fingers crossed they can give us an away series victory. I can not wait for it to start, and the chosen XI will be getting my full backing.As you said, and I thought the same, I hope our bowlers haven't been going at full pelt. Would you in a 2 or 3 day game?Right then, the missus has me by the ear and the visa card is about to take another hammering lol
Typo error on #55 as it's meant to be funny as I am a Warks lad , as it reads you are but we all know your unfortunate status 😉.Cricket a Team sport not individualism hence why All Counties should provide players but as we know there is a Closed Shop on certain Counties or players which is a shame. Although individual displays do help out the Team ....
Despite Woakes taking no wickets he finished 2nd behind JA as econ run rate of 3.00.Yes stats and data okays a big part now in the players selection too.As we all know there are horses for courses too and New Management need to look at Test venues and Tracks that may be prepared by the Home team for their bowlers.Of course we do it as it's the way if Home and Away Test cricket.
Maksi .... Funny as a Warks lad.Like Archer and Woakes something has changed within themselves or mentality. Whether it be they are just White ball or like Raedwulf plus ourselves say too Abroad wickets are different.Well one hopes the New Management have some ideas and plans trying to get our new and up and coming bowlers being more consistent.
Very good question duncan.The only thing that has bene confirmed is that our opening pair should be Anderson and Broad, and if these Warwickshire fans continue to harp on about that Woakes should be doing that job then I will be looking for those knitting needles.Anyway, I have more chance of being picked. Archer, Stokes and Leach will be the others. That's a good team?
Where are serious pace bowlers Olly Stone and Saqib Mahmood ???
Jimmy apart, suddenly our bowling looks a bit dodgy.Woakes is not good away from home. Archer was way down on pace in NZ. Wood breaks down injured and has little game time under his belt, and well Overton is Overton.Curran and Stokes are support bowlers.Where are the wickets coming from?
By the Book yep fair comment on JA and it be down to the warm down and next few days training within himself and the squadYep 1st Test is set up precariously for Bowling attack, so do Management go with 100% or nearly in that range fitness or gamble like the old management v Aussies and go for a chance on not quite fit but we gambleTime for us and the professionals to ponder what will be.
