Cook still not convincing. Think Stoneman is starting to grow in confidence just as Cook must be losing his.

I honestly think his heart is not in it anymore. He's been a great batsman, but now is the time or him to retire. Scored 23 runs in 4 innings in NZ - hardly world beaters - after his disastrous tour in Australia.

Loving the free flowing entertaining football at S
Wasn't to be and the end of a terrible winter for England....

Loads of places up for grabs heading into the summer internationals.....

England need a 3rd seamer to back up Anderson & Broad , Woakes doesn't seem to be hitting his lengths in Test Cricket and seems a better ODI bowler of late.....

The batting line up needs serious work.....Stoneman , Vince , Malan are all ok at best and none convince me as "proper"' test players & Cook needs runs asazzz

I am now getting very seriously concerned at Cook’s lack of runs. Maybe he has lost the appetite for it ?

As Credy says there is a lack of “proper” test class batsman. Delighted Vince got some runs but was it a flash in the pan ?

Would like to see Leach given a decent run of games. Apart from his bowling he has quite a correct looking batting technique and could be a useful lower order batsman.

I'd like to see Hameed & Livingstone come in from the lions & Foakes get a game as keeper to free up Bairstow higher in the order

Cook
Hameed
Root
Bairstow
Stokes
Livingstone
Foakes
Woakes
Broad
Leach
Anderson
So above you stated that maybe Cook's time is up and now he's in your next team? Why don't you just fess up to the fact that I was right and you were wrong.
