Root now averages only 32 in his last 16 Tests. I know he's captain, but suspect even if he wasn't he'd still be undroppable even if he scored four ducks in tests 3 & 4. Shows the weakness of the England side at the moment

Marnus Labuschange smashing test cricket like it's D2 county stuff, don't personally think he was out, but soft signal did for him.....cannot believe that he wasn't in the team to begin with. He's no Steve Smith, but he's better than the rest of them!
Cricket is a strange old game - the second most successful opener* of the four on show is about to be dropped. There's a strange allure to the attacking opening batsman that seems to make selectors cling to them for so much longer than they do to more traditional ones.
* Yes, this is three bald men fighting over a comb
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
