With the series won...

England should look towards finally trying to shape their side, particularly the batting order and players. This isn't our best side, nor maybe the one that will go to Sri Lanka or the Caribbean but it has specialist batsmen and depth.

Cook
Burns
Vince
Root
Pope
Stokes
Butler
Ali
Curran
Broad
Jimmy

Curran at 9 seems bizarre but it isn't really about him. We know what he can do and will probably find himself at 7 as his career develops. What I want to see is people batting in their natural positions.
I'm a big fan of Vince and I get that most think his time has come and gone but he was dropped off the back of a decent score in NZ.
Burns doesn't look like an international in terms of technique, but neither did Trescothick. Let's see if actual specialist batters can get runs batting in their positions.

For Sri Lanka would go Hales, Roy, root, bairstow, stokes, butler, moeen, Curran, leech, broad, Anderson.

Hales has also said he won't play for England if he's asked to open. He's a number 5, 4 at best. He also hasn't played red ball cricket all season.

We are in a bad place with openers. By not picking Burns now he's had no time to settle into the team and his first game is going to come a little while after the County season finishes. It has to be him though as there's just no other candidates to replace Cook. Wouldn't be surprised if we plumped for Gubbins though.

Cook just announced he's retiring after last test



Probably realised that no one ever wins at cricket. It just goes on and on and on...until the end of time, where it will be a ducksworth muggletwat draw, or something. Probably what the ashes really stands for, after the nuclear holocaust in 2678, the only thing left will be cockroaches, and the test match that started in 1852.

Roy or Hales in the middle order wouldnt be the worst idea, however England need 2 openers and a number 3.

At least Cookie was the first opener to make fifty this series.... Also he is grateful for the drop as we Indians have been very generous throughout the series especially with our selections and Kohli’s idiotic captainship.. Lady Luck also is against India in regards to tosses
