    Maybe some other identity told me that

    You pipped me ! I would have gone for Shane Warne too - small run up and kept his hand in with the bat

    Re: The Ashes

    Mason Crane makes his debut. Can't quite see him running through Warner, Smith and the Marsh's given his average but he can't be worse than Moeen has bowled this series and maybe having the pressure off will help Ali. Add in Root and Malan and we have 4 spinners of sorts

    Best of luck nevertheless

    Re: The Ashes

    A big step up for Mason Crane and I hope not too soon. He has been successful in the white ball format but his red ball average is nowhere close to Test standard. That said, the Ageas does not offer much to the spinner in the 4 day gig and the lad has a good attitude. Good luck Mason.

    Dead rubber number two.

    Starc returning for Aus will obviously make a big difference, Jackson Bird was shocking.

    Aus victory !

    Crane will either do very well or get spanked everywhere, his overs won't be boring !

    Hope Moeen Ali rediscovers some form....despite a shocking ashes he's still a quality player for England and will be in there future plans

    Probably James Anderson final Ashes "away" game so hope he takes a cheeky Michele

    On the subject of spinners I believe Geoffrey turned a few balls back in his prime.

    Probably correct on both points.
