I’d have taken that at start of play for sure. Don’t think England will do it easily though.... we never do!

6 more overs of cricket and England should win. Reserve day tomorrow but 20 overs is a complete game. Miles ahead of DL

147 - for 2 wickets (19.4 overs)

England need 77 runs to win from 30.2 overs

Complete dominance this.

England openers are their lifeline.

Fucking love smashing the Aussies.

Amazing from Roy - 85 not out.

Good win by 9 wickets.

Looking ahead a little bit, but I can't even remember England's top 3 in our last Test match. Who were those muppets? Jennings was one, maybe Denly, and some other shit cunt.

For the Ashes Roy has to be in, and Archer will be too.

XI could look something like this?

Roy
?
?
Root
Buttler
Stokes
Bairstow
Moeen Ali
Broad
Archer
Anderson

That means no Wood, no Woakes. Seems harsh.

Could get Bairstow opening with Roy, move Woakes into number 7 or 8?

Roy
Bairstow

Root
Buttler
Stokes
Moeen Ali
Woakes
Broad
Archer
Anderson

England were terrific today, making a mockery of chasing. That opening two are class.

They'll piss NZ.

Burns probably in the last test. Pope would've had a good shout at 3rd spot had he not fucked his whole season

Roy will bat three, I suspect.

Burns and Jennings opened last tour. Burns will probably be given another go. Not sure who will partner him though. It definitely won't be Bairstow because he'll be keeping wicket.

Just looking at the stats and the leading run scorer in the county championship is a young opener called Peter Sibley. Might as well give him a go then.

I think Anderson is injured and might not make the first Test.

Burns
Sibley
Roy
Root
Stokes
Butler
Bairstow
Moeen
Archer
Wood
Broad

Pretty brave to go with a sketchy prior choice and a newby at the top isn't it?

Burns only played a couple of tests and England don't drop you after a couple of Tests. He's also averaging 40 in this years county championship so is in reasonable form. He'll play IMO.

All opening options are sketchy tbh. Bairstow is never going to open, it just isn't going to happen, so we can forget that. I also don't think he should anyway, he's a gun lower middle order batter and should stay there.

Denley got a couple of Tests in the Windies and looked OK, he might play.

I forgot Curran. He's got to be a decent shout for a place.

Should be big odds on favourites. 1/3 shortened to 3/10 after toss but NZ 30 short I reckon
