Yeah, possibly a nudge from Cook there to pick an Essex player over Stoneman. He must be doing something right for them to be where they are though.

According to the Beeb he's scored 478 at 53.11 this season, though Ballance has over 800 runs this season and look how dreadful he is making the step up. There's loads of examples of that - guess you have to at least try to carefully pick the ones you think will be able to handle the increased pace and swing from international Test bowlers, which is a question of technique, not piling on the runs.

Scoring a ton against a full strength Saffer attack is promising though.

 

Guess Stoneman is being kept back in case Jennings doesn't improve and the latest game of musical England opener chairs begins.

Westley could be the perfect call up, not as fluent as most but a solid defensive technique.

 

Dawson will probably retain his spot as the Oval is apparantly resembling a dustbowl at the minute thanks to the weather.

In that case I could understand playing the extra spinner, but why not choose Rashid instead. Don't know what the man has to do for a chance, Dawson is simply dreadful and nowhere near a test player.

do England's players not have their kits washed/have more than one kit lol ?

 

SA players all have crisp, clear white kits on. England's look covered in sweat and dirt lol 

SA..played in whites...Englands kit is cream (off white)

Thats why you notice the difference....

To be fair, neither is Rashid - he's got an average of well over 40 with the ball, concedes nearly 4 an over and that's a player who only gets called up to play on turning pitches.

 

If we are going play a leg-spinner we may as well go with Mason Crane now.
