Lest we forget we play another Test before the Ashes...!

I think Roy will be given a chance even though he doesn't even open for Sorry. I have massive reservations about his ability in the red ball game especially up top, but then I also have massive reservations about Buttler in red ball stuff and he has done alright since coming back in, so what do I know, etc.

Archer will be nailed on to play, so I'm starting to think Broad is coming to the end of the road after a modest season with the ball so far for Notts.

Joe Denly remains in very good form, I wouldn't rule him out of a spot in England's top 3/4.

So maybe this then (assuming Anderson is fit):

Roy
Burns
Denly
Root
Bairstow
Stokes
Buttler
Moeen
Woakes
Archer
Anderson
Pretty close.

What is about England that we have to suffer a collapses like this? Was hoping for somewhere near 100 as a lead

We're 44 ahead. Woakes and Broad are useful with the bat, but the TMS team reckon the ball will spin a lot during the final innings. Guessing we'll need at least 100 start.
