Ballance should never have been recalled.  Fact he refused to acknowledge his technical flaws tells you everything.
:thup: On a pitch with unpredictable bounce you just have to get onto the front foot. Ballance not a clue how to do it and f*** knows what the Yorkshire and the England batting coaches have told him.

With Jennings, he doesn't move his feet early on in his innings and ends up playing away from his body thus losing his judgment of where off stump is.  I'd probably give him this series and possibly the first Test against the West Indies before deciding whether or not he should step down.
RIP gejon/cajun/ Jon Lockwood.

Proud to have made your acquaintance Sir.

Has to have been Root's influence that got him recalled. Absolutely terrible selection.

And yeah, Jennings needs to return to Durham to try and rediscover some form.

Find it slightly worrying that one of Root's first captaincy decisions was to recall one of his mates.

Is there a player who Ramprakash as batting coach has improved once they've hit some bad form?

Aye, I'm not impressed so far.  Waiting yesterday to 3pm for a spinner was a bad call.

Drop Dawson, Ballance moves to 5 from 3, Bairstow from 5 to 7, Ali moves down to 8, Jennings to 3 and add Stoneman. Sorted.

Ballance is still going to technically s**** whether at 5 or 3. He has to be binned permanently

Our teams in the 90's would do better than this.

He had a good start as coach, but I'm having reservations about what Bayliss is doing with this side.

Regarding test cricket you may well be right but you can't question what he's done for the T20 and ODI sides.

Yes, they have improved and I feel the main reason for him being appointed was for white ball cricket.

Dawson was such a weird selection for these tests. Hope Stoneman gets a go if/when Jennings is dropped

Ballance set to miss next test, sounds like Stoneman is going to come in and open and Jennings down to 3.

Can't see Stoneman ever getting in , for some reason his face doesn't seem to fit.

Agree; personally I think our best 4 batsmen should be the top 4;

Cook
Hameed (hopefully)
Root
Bairstow

Stokes
XXXX
XXXX
Ali
Broad
Wood (Woakes when fit)
Anderson

Getting our arses handed to us here like.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

145 to win.

Not bad given it looked like Leicestershire were going to post near 200 at one point.
