Rest of the squad

  • Cook
  • Root
  • Bairstow
  • Broad
  • Bresnan
  • Tremlett

Seven Aussies in the first team

Yep. I think Rogers is a marginal choice over Cook but it’s my team so I’m picking him. All the subs are English, although again Bairstow was a marginal pick over Khawaja. Nobody making a cast iron case for this spot though.

No Prior?

Bairstow is the reserve keeper and in slightly better form with the bat.

Broad not in the first team?

No.

And Tremlett? He didn’t even play.

The other candidates rules themselves out by playing. Onions was unlucky.
