Kiwis will be glad to see the back of Bairstow. Am at Edgbaston on Friday (v India) will be interesting to see if England's new approach works as well then.
This is ridiculous, I’m used to England batting over 100 overs less than the opposition but it’s usually in abject failure
Anybody think Crawleys place is under threat? He's been absolutely woeful this series.
Nasser made a good point on sky though, you can't just tell a batter to go out and play shots then drop him when he tries, but where do you draw the line.
Any names in mind for who could/would replace him?
Keep buttler just for white ball in my opinion. He’s in the form of his life at the moment. No need to risk ruining that by sending him as an opener in my opinionAs sanga said why not play butler there?
Ok he might get out early but he can’t be any worse than the current opener plus we know on his day he can destroy sides and it would get another brilliant batsman into the batting line up.
What have we got to lose.
