Sri Lanka Tour

Jun 22, 2009
Loughton - the only way is Orange!
Looks like I've finally got my wish of Foakes being brought back into the test side and it looks like Bairstow is given a long overdue reminder that nobody's place should be taken for granted.
Agree with resting Jimmy and would have done the same with Broad as well, he has nothing to prove. Bowling pretty much picks itself and the only surprise for me, even though it was widely predicted, is the inclusion of Jennings. His record in the sub continent is excellent but you can't really be a opening batsman for England who only goes on tour to this particular region.
Thoroughly enjoyed this last year so really looking forward to watching the battle against spin again. Definitely for the purists I concede but this really will be a chess match on a cricket field!
